Early NBA Free Agent Signings and Trades

Free Agency officially tipped off on July 1 and we’ve already got a few signings and trades.  New contracts can’t officially be signed until July 11th, but most verbal agreements usually end up being upheld.  I expect that there will be a slow trickle of news over the next month or so and I’ll be collecting the best fantasy stuff every couple of days.
