After a frantic first few days to open NBA free agency, chatter has started to calm down a bit around the league.
Kawhi Leonard’s next destination is set, with the former Spur heading to the Raptors. After being sent to the Hawks on Thursday, Carmelo Anthony will likely end up in Houston for the upcoming season.
Restricted free agents Marcus Smart and Clint Capela are two of the biggest impact players still available on the market and veterans Dwyane Wade and Jamal Crawford are just some of the many other players still waiting on deals.
With summer league in the books, prepare for a lull in competitive basketball but be ready for more rumors.
