| May 25, 2015

An early look at 2015 NBA free agency, including unrestricted and restricted free agents, as well as players who can exercise options to enter NBA free agency this summer:

More info on 2015 NBA free agency will be on our NBA free agents page.

General NBA Free Agency Overview
May 25, 2015

In NBA free agency, players seek new contracts, whether with their current team or another squad elsewhere. They are NBA free agents. Unrestricted free agents can sign with any team that offers them a contract. Restricted free agents can do the same -- BUT, the team they had just been a member of has the right to match the contract and keep the player.

With the way the NBA is structured salary rule-wise, the majority of good players in need of a new contract tend to re-sign with their current team rather than go someplace new, because their current team can often sign them to more money and a longer contract.

Often, you hear that a star player in NBA free agency may seek a new home, but in reality, the vast majority of teams in the league are at or above the salary cap limit and simply don't have the money available to sign a star. When in doubt, if you have no other information, if you have to guess, assume that a really good NBA player will re-sign with his most recent team rather than heading elsewhere.
