NBA free agency is underway, and it’s moving at a rapid pace. From Thursday evening, teams and players could officially start negotiating new contracts. NBA fans didn’t have to wait that long for important news, though. Hours before the free agency opened, Kevin Durant asked for an exchange away from the Brooklyn Nets. The KD request will send shockwaves through the league and having one of the best players in basketball on the trade bloc will determine how many teams this offseason operate.

Zach LaVine and the Bulls agreed to a $215 million five-year supermax deal to return to Chicago, while Bradley Beal reached a $251 million five-year supermax deal with the Wizards. James Harden is still available but is expected to re-sign with the 76ers.

Meanwhile, Jalen Brunson had reportedly agreed to a four-year $104 million deal with the New York Knicks. Also former No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton could leave the Suns this summer. Hornet’s forward Miles Bridges, meanwhile, is a restricted free agent but was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday
