The NBA’s 2023 free agency period officially begins on Friday at 5:00 pm central time. At that point, we can expect news of contract agreements to start pouring in, continuing well into the night.
By our count, 38 free agents agreed to deals on day one of free agency in 2022, with seven more players reaching agreements on extensions — we’ll see if that number is matched or exceeded later today.
