Five things to know on Day 1 of free agency
1) NBA teams were allowed to begin negotiating with free agents at 12:01 a.m. Eastern this morning (11:01 p.m. Sunday night in the Central time zone). It’s not uncommon for there to be reports of multiple contract agreements in the first few hours of July 1.
2) Teams are not allowed to announce the official signing of any free agent until July 10. The moratorium freeze on signings in 2013 is from July 1 through July 9.
