NBA Free Agency 2018 : Deals from Day 1

The 2018 NBA Free Agency is off to a brisk start. Lots of teams have been active and lots of players have been signed. Some signings were expected (Kevin Durant with the Warriors) , and some were slightly unexpected (Paul George with the Thunder). Some players have surprisingly left their teams after a successful season for a team with far lesser talent (Trevor Ariza chose to leave the Rockets to sign with the Suns), while some players are going to have a homecoming of sorts (Marco Belinelli will be going back to San Antonio for the first time since he left the Spurs in 2015).
