A look at which NBA players have signed new contracts during this year’s free agency period.

After the Finals and then the NBA draft, the momentum of NBA news typically slows a bit before free agency. That hasn’t been close to the case this season, and now, the free agency madness has officially begun.

Pay close attention to the rumblings. They might shed light on a player’s future.

For a complete list of player agreements, follow our free agency tracker.

Could the Cavs be interested in … Jose Calderon?

With the West getting stronger, could Gordon Hayward be headed out East?

Jrue Holiday is off the market

The new point guard in Minny? Jeff Teague

Supermax Steph

Nene staying in Houston

The Rockets locked up the big man for four years, $15 million, per the Houston Chronicle.

PG to OKC

In a shocking move, the Pacers are sending All-Star forward Paul George to the Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Griffin staying in L.A.

As Clippers executive vice president of basketball operations told USA TODAY Sports, keeping Griffin is the team’s top priority, and that’s exactly what they did.

The Clippers locked Griffin down to a five-year, $175 million deal.

Latest news: Rubio on the move:

The Minnesota Timberwolves dealt Ricky Rubio to the Utah Jazz, which could have a serious trickle down effect on Utah’s plans for point guard George Hill and Gordon Hayward. And as for the T-Wolves’ point guard options after the deal (which netted them a protected first round pick) … 

Ex-Cavalier GM David Griffin in New York?

Could Andre Iguodala really leave the Warriors?

Add Rondo to the deep free agent point guard pool:

The Chicago Bulls released the veteran guard on Friday afternoon. Rondo was productive in the postseason and could find himself a decent deal, but he clearly wasn’t part of the Bulls’ rebuilding plans. The Bulls shifted gears last week in their blockbuster Jimmy Butler trade with Minnesota. 

On All-Star Gordon Hayward, who might be the biggest domino heading into free agency:

From USA TODAY Sports’ Sam Amick: “But the moving parts are many in Utah, where point guard George Hill is also a free agent. While Hill could re-sign in Utah if Hayward leaves, there are strong signs that the opposite is not the case. Add in the fact that the Jazz have been exploring other point guard options on the trade market of late – a move that may ultimately prove unwise – and you get the sense in league circles that Hayward may be headed out of town.” 

Lots of teams interested in Danilo:
