In the first day of NBA free agency, the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't do anything. Around the league, however, there was much more activity. Keep in mind that no deals can be officially signed until July 11th. Everything that you see here is either just an offer, a rumor, or agreed to verbally.

  • The Denver Nuggets and Andre Miller agreed to a three-year contract, according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. He was a guy that the Cavaliers may have been interested in getting to backup Kyrie Irving. No dice -- he's going back to Denver.
  • The Boston Celtics and Kevin Garnett agreed to a 3 year, $34 million contract, the Boston Globe reports. I don't think that's a very good idea for the Celtics.
  • The Memphis Grizzlies and Celtics are doing their best to make sure Ray Allen doesn't go to the Miami Heat, according to multiple reports. The Grizzlies offered the full mid-level exception to Jesus Shuttlesworth and the Celtics are willing to give him $12 million over two years. The Heat can only offer the mini mid-level, which is worth just $3 million per year.
  • Tim Duncan ain't going anywhere. He's a San Antonio Spur for life.
  • Dwight Howard has no clue what he's doing.
  • That's all I know for now. Let me know if I missed anything.
