We’ll keep you updated on every 2021 free agency signing in the NBA. The Milwaukee Bucks have been crowned NBA champions, and the 2021 NBA Draft has been competed. Now it’s time for free agency to take centerstage in the NBA.
Players and teams can start discussing contracts when the free agency moratorium begins on Monday, Aug. 2 at 6 p.m. ET. Contracts can’t become official until Aug. 6 at 12:01 p.m. ET.
Kawhi Leonard and Chris Paul headline this year’s free agency class. While neither of the veteran stars are expected to change teams this offseason, you never know what’s going to happen when free agency officially begins. Expect there to be significant player movement over the next month. We’ve already seen a couple big trades ahead of the 2021-2022 season, most notably with Russell Westbrook getting traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and Kemba Walker going from the Boston Celtics to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Al Horford.
You can find our free agency predictions here for the top players in the class. We’ll be updating this page with every signing in the NBA as it goes official.
