Every important 2016 NBA free agency rumor in one place

Keep track of the (non-Kevin Durant-related) latest NBA free agency rumors here.

The NBA offseason began weeks ago, but the real festivities get going with the opening of free agency on July 1. Starting at midnight on Friday, teams across the league will begin calling agents and making their best pitches, hoping to convince players to join their respective organizations.

This year's free agent class is loaded with superstar names, none bigger than Kevin Durant. The longtime Thunder forward is an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career and had teams lining up for the chance to meet with him.
