We've already seen one blockbuster move go down before the market has even opened. And with a number of star players set to become free agents when the period begins this weekend, we're bound to see even more fireworks.
The Miami Heat will get the first crack at wooing Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward, but the Boston Celtics' desire to reunite the former Butler University hero with his college coach is well-documented -- though it's apparently drawn lines within Celtics president Danny Ainge's own ranks.
Could Blake Griffin join Chris Paul in leaving the LA Clippers? The Phoenix Suns are set to meet with him and the Atlanta Hawks' Paul Millsap after free agency begins.
Elsewhere, former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is drawing interest from a slew of teams -- including his former squad and the Philadelphia 76ers, who are reportedly also interested in luring hometown product Kyle Lowry away from the Toronto Raptors.
Where will the NBA's top free agents land? Vote below:
Free agents can begin reaching verbal agreements with teams when the league's 2017-18 calendar begins Saturday. Teams can officially begin signing players and making trades on July 6.
