The NBA's free agency period largely came and went, with many of the top names having already been taken off the market. The Los Angeles Lakers were one of the most active teams, with the 2020 NBA champions having added veteran players such as Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza, Dwight Howard, and several others to pair with Anthony Davis, LeBron James, and newly-acquired Russell Westbrook, the former All-NBA Houston Rockets guard.

The Miami Heat also bolstered their roster, as they made several win-now moves, such as adding Kyle Lowry and P.J. Tucker, while also giving Jimmy Butler a massive contract extension, to the tune of four-years and $184 million. As for the Houston Rockets, they've sought to retain several of their own players from last season, as they extended qualifying offers to Anthony Lamb and sharpshooter Armoni Brooks.

The Rockets saw Kelly Olynyk get a payday elsewhere, as last season's fan favorite signed a three--year deal with the Detroit Pistons worth $37.2 million. Olynyk had made it known after the Rockets' final game that he was going to pursue a hefty deal, as he stated that he was going to have to make a business decision that would involve him "looking at the numbers."
