Free agents can begin reaching verbal agreements with teams when the league's 2017-18 calendar begins Saturday.
Paul George has been traded to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis per ESPN. They want to keep Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins happy as well as give them some help and they did so by agreeing to terms with Jrue Holiday to a 5 year deal worth 126 million dollars.
Shaun Livingston agreed to a 3-year $24 million deal with the Warriors per ESPN. Plus, don't forget about Paul George, who is not a free agent, but is nearly certain to be traded by the Pacers before he bolts for nothing next summer.
For a full list of ongoing speculation and whispers, view SBNation's rumor mill. While Durant is again a free agent, it's known he plans to re-sign with Golden State, so we can't expect much drama there. However, Durant and Curry are locks to re-sign, and the real interesting negotiations will center around Iguodala, the NBA Finals MVP from three seasons ago.
Ahead of the festivities, we predict where each of the top 15 free agents will land.
