As we approach the 2017-18 NBA season, it’s time to take a look back on the summer with complete offseason grades — including the draft, free agency and trades — for all 30 teams.
The 2017 NBA offseason will go down in league history as one of the most bizarre summers of all time. With so many superstars and recognizable names swapping hands, it was like someone injected the new 2K with a bottle of steroids.
With Kyrie Irving, Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Gordon Hayward, Paul Millsap and dozens more joining new teams, the 2017 NBA Draft and free agency period were a great time to be an NBA fan. Even the No. 1 overall pick in the draft got moved!
With so much player movement, draft picks, free agency signings and mind-numbing trades to keep track of, it can be hard to remember who ended up where and which teams made what moves over. To simplify matters and clear up the confusion before the start of the 2017-18 NBA season, it’s time to go through all 30 teams’ offseasons.
Without further ado, let’s break down each team’s summer moves, from the draft through free agency. This includes taking a look at the key additions, key subtractions and assigning each team a final grade for their summer. We start in alphabetical order with the Atlanta Hawks.
