Day one of free agency is always a lot to digest.
It’s like trying to consume a nine-course meal, and just when you can’t handle any more, Woj emerges from the kitchen with dessert.
So to help you wrap your head around the non-stop moving and shaking, we’ve compiled a list of every single transaction so far.
Here we go…
Kyrie Irving – Brooklyn Nets (4 years, $141M)
The lovable, innocent, blue collar Nets have officially been corrupted.
Kevin Durant – Brooklyn Nets (4 years, $164M)
After a lifetime of paying big money to guys with injury problems, James Dolan taking a stand now is beyond amazing.
Jimmy Butler – Miami Heat (4 years, $142M) (sign-and-trade still pending)
The Heat have always run a boot camp-style regime (complete with regularly scheduled body fat testing), so what better man for the team than Jimmy Butler?
D’Angelo Russell – Golden State Warriors (4 years, $117M)
Every time someone cuts the Warriors’ head off, they grow three more.
Kemba Walker – Boston Celtics (4 years, $141M)
First Isaiah, then Kyrie, then Kemba. Danny Ainge is hoping for third time lucky.
Klay Thompson – Golden State Warriors (5 years, $190M)
The Warriors were never offering less than the max, and Klay never wanted to leave.
Damian Lillard – Portland Trail Blazers (4 years, $194M)
Dame’s OKC game-winner was arguably worth $194 million on its own.
Al Horford – Philadelphia 76ers (4 years, $109M)
After acquiring starpower above all else last season, the Sixers are now finding the perfect balance between talent and fit.
Tobias Harris – Philadelphia 76ers (5 years, $180M)
Right, well that’s a lot of money for your fourth most important guy.
Khris Middleton – Milwaukee Bucks (5 years, $178M)
Heading into next season, Middleton might be the league’s most boring and important secondary star, all at the same time.
DeAndre Jordan – Brooklyn Nets (4 years, $40M)
Find someone who gets you paid like Kevin Durant gets DeAndre Jordan paid.
Julius Randle – New York Knicks (3 years, $63M)
The Knicks finally got Zion… without the hops.
Derrick Rose – Detroit Pistons (2 years, $15M)
If Tom Thibodeau was capable of human thoughts and feelings, a single tear would’ve run down his cheek today.
Trevor Ariza – Sacramento Kings (2 years, $25M)
After having some great years with the Lakers and Rockets, Ariza is apparently now just jumping from terrible franchise to terrible franchise.
JJ Redick – New Orleans Pelicans (2 years, $26.5M)
The Pelicans clearly heard your jokes about their lack of shooting.
Kristaps Porzingis – Dallas Mavericks (5 years, $158M)
Jamal Murray – Denver Nuggets (5 year, $170M extension)
