The 2019 NBA free agency period will go down as one of the most frenetic and unpredictable in recent memory, and the decisions of several superstars effectively reshaped the league and our expectations heading into next season. It’s been the summer of the tandem, as star duos have chosen to team up in Los Angeles (Kawhi Leonard and Paul George with the Clippers, LeBron James and Anthony Davis with the Lakers), Brooklyn (Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant) and Houston (James Harden and Russell Westbrook), but those aren’t the only teams who had successful offseasons.
We’ve logged every team’s transactions, including draft picks, trades and free-agent signings, and assigned a grade to teach team’s offseason maneuvers. Success is judged differently, as not every team had a chance to sign the big fish, but the most important thing we looked for was if the team appeared to have a plan, and how they were able to execute it. Some, as you’ll see, had a better summer than others.
We’ve included every official transaction, as well as some that haven’t technically been completed yet, and will continue to add to the list as moves continue to be made before the start of the season in October.
