The dream scenario for LeBron James and the Lakers would be to add Kawhi Leonard, but that appears unlikely since the Spurs reportedly want Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and two first-round picks in return. The Lakers have until midnight Friday to convince the Spurs to lower their asking price before Sunday’s deadline passes.

One of the most coveted centers in a weak market for big men, Clint Capela agreed to a five-year, $90 million deal with the Rockets on July 1. The Rockets traded away Ryan Anderson on Thursday to create cap space for Capela’s new deal.

Dwyane Wade’s one-year reunion with the Heat has come to an end, as he’ll join James’ Cavaliers on a one-year deal worth roughly $2.3 million. Wade played 13 seasons with Miami over three separate stints and led them to three NBA championships.

After spending his first nine seasons in Toronto, DeMar DeRozan was shipped to San Antonio in exchange for Kawhi Leonard. He signed a five-year, $145 million contract with Toronto before being traded to San Antonio

The Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James are at a crossroads. The Golden State Warriors are still the favorites to win it all next season. But what about the teams with cap space? Will they make a dent in the free agency market? Will there be any major trades on draft night? ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski will have all the latest news and rumblings from around the Association.

LeBron James has opted out of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The Cavaliers’ plans remain unclear as they await James’ decision. Will he stay in Cleveland, or opt for a change of scenery? We’ll keep you posted.

The NBA’s free agency period began on July 1, and over the next few days, there will be plenty of buzz about where the top players will end up. Here’s a look at where each of them stands.

LeBron James

The King had already decided to leave the Cavs for a second time before free agency started after he reportedly told owner Dan Gilbert that he would not exercise his player option for 2018-19. James is expected to meet with the Cavs, Lakers, Rockets and Sixers in Los Angeles this week.

Paul George

George was reported by ESPN to have told the Thunder he plans on signing with them when free agency begins. The Lakers were reportedly trying to change his mind, but it doesn’t seem like they could do it.

Kevin Durant

Durant has been linked with the Knicks and Clippers in addition to the Warriors, but it seems like a foregone conclusion he’ll return to Golden State. He can make more money by signing a new deal with the Warriors than any other team can give him. Free agency is just a formality for him at this point.

The NBA’s summer of 2018 has arrived. This is the time the league’s 30 franchises do their most important business: The season that was is behind them, the one that lies ahead is on the horizon. Teams can improve themselves in a number of ways, but the most effective method for roster building — and certainly the most fun to follow — is free agency.

Free agency begins Sunday, July 1, with negotiations allowed to begin a minute after 12:01 a.m. ET that morning. Signings can’t become official until noon on Friday, July 6. Until then, we’ll have a running tracker of all of the news and rumors surrounding this year’s crop of players who are slated to hit unrestricted free agency (barring an extension before Sunday). We’ll also break down what each team needs and how they might go about filling those needs.

Finally, we’ve created a list of the top 50 free agents (below) based on analysis from SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh using his projection model for players’ next seasons. These rankings aren’t designed to serve as a definitive list of who will get paid the most this summer (though Oh’s projections suggest there may be more value available than you’d think), but rather to project which players will provide the
