  NBA East Conf Free Agents & Current Status 1PM July 1

As the clock struck midnight this morning arguably the most exciting off season period began with NBA Free Agents holding meetings to determine their futures.

Making this an even more exciting free agent market is the number of quality free agents available and the uncertainty of how the new television contracts (which will escalate salary caps in the coming season) will effect the terms of deals made this summer.
