(R) -- Restricted free agent, team has right to match outside offers.

For NBA free agent signings that are official, hit our NBA free agency page.



Explanation of restricted NBA free agents: Players can sign with any team in the league that offers them a valid contract. They're totally free to go where they want.

Explanation of restricted NBA free agents: Players who are restricted free agents can re-sign with their most recent team, or sign an offer sheet with a new team. But if they do the latter and sign an offer sheet elsewhere then their previous team has the right to match the contract of that offer sheet and re-sign the player, whether the player wants them to or not.

There are also player options and team options. If a player's contract is a player option for the season, it means the player has the ability to "opt out" of the contract and become a free agent. And if a player's contract says that this season is a team option, then as you'd guess, the team has the option to decline the option and cause the player to become a free agent.
