The 2022 NBA Finals and the 2022 NBA draft are behind us, which means it's time to turn our full attention to the 2022 NBA offseason. Free agents were allowed to begin negotiating with teams last Thursday at 6 p.m. ET. The NBA's annual player movement moratorium -- during which most contracts can't be signed and trades can't be made official -- began July 1. Later this week, everything that gets reported during the moratorium can become official after the league sets the final salary-cap and luxury tax numbers for the 2022-23 season.

While only five teams entered this offseason with significant cap space to work with, all 30 teams had things they need to address this summer -- and some of those priorities have already shifted in the few days the offseason action has been underway. We have a complete updated team-by-team guide to free agency, including what to watch, available exceptions, key dates, current roster status and every team's free-agent list.
