‘The Lowe Post’ Podcast: Tom Ziller on the Kings and the Rest of Free Agency — Zach Lowe talks to SB Nation's Tom Ziller about the state of the Kings after their questionable trade with the Sixers, and other free-agency headlines.

NBA Free Agency, Day 2: Sacramento’s Crazy Salary Dump and Greg Monroe’s Milwaukee Move — Gary Dineen/NBAE via Getty Images Almost exactly two years ago, the Warriors shipped two future first-round picks to the Jazz as payoff for Utah swallowing $20 million of dead money attached to Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins. Put another way: Utah paid $10 million a pop for two first-round picks.

The Overwhelming Sound and Fury of Day 1 of NBA Free Agency — Al Bello/Getty Images Well, holy freaking crap. The NBA has never, ever seen a day like July 1, 2015. LeBron James drew in more intense tractor beams of interest with his two prolonged free-agency stripteases, but there has never been a start like this, with so many transactions at all salary levels packed into a single 24-hour window.

‘The Lowe Post’ Podcast: Marc Stein on LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan, and More — Victor Decolongon / Getty Images Filed Under: Grantland Network, The Lowe Post, Podcasts, Marc Stein, Zach Lowe, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan, 2015 NBA Free Agency, NBA Free Agency

The Eight Biggest NBA Free-Agency Questions — Sam Forencich/NBAE via Getty Images When free agency opens at the stroke of midnight, the NBA will leap into its great unknown: an unprecedented three-year spending frenzy that will change the league forever and stand out in history as an outlier blip in which the NBA lost its mind.

Continuity Errors: Why the Blazers and Pacers May Have to Start Over — Sam Forencich/NBAE via Getty Images In a league that stoked fan interest by slicing away at roster continuity, it's fitting that the two teams that prized it most are on the verge of traumatic and sudden reconstruction.

‘The Lowe Post’ Podcast: Steve Kerr on Winning the Title, Offseason Plans, and More — Noah Graham/NBAE via Getty Images Zach Lowe talks to Steve Kerr about the elation that comes from winning, guarding LeBron, offseason plans, and more. Listen on ESPN Podcenter. Below is an edited excerpt from the interview. What was the craziest thing that happened at the after-party at Morton's Steakhouse - of all places - in Cleveland, Ohio?

Fear the Deer: The Bucks Unveil Their New Court Design — Mike McGinnis/Getty Images Two years ago, the Bucks gave NBA court design a jolt by shading giant "M's" into each half of the floor - a throwback to the pop-art MECCA floor on which the Bucks played during the late 1970s and 1980s.

The NBA Finalists: How to Make a Sequel — Ezra Shaw/Getty Images In the usual late-June way, league executives are tittering over how Golden State ran Cleveland off the floor with super-small lineups featuring Draymond Green at center. They are curious about how much of Golden State's model is replicable, and whether the army of hulking 7-footers about to hit free agency are less valuable than they seemed just two weeks ago.

@Eyeduzdis He is in a different universe, when healthy, at two kind of important things: 3-point shooting and D, where ME remains awful

@senarup11 @teamziller This is certainly what Philly is betting: "we'll both be bad, let's get Sacto's ping pong balls."

@GDUB18T @poundingtherock As I said in the next tweet, I'm pretty confident they find a way.

@RKalland Just catching up. Congrats. Great news.

Really nice deal for Kings. Casspi clearly likes it there.…

@basketball2912 @eberg15 It's not about will. Once you go under, you can't really go over by all that much

@EricWS Yup. Math still very tight if Manu takes the room. If he takes minimum, fine

Jul 06, 2015

@basketball2912 @eberg15 Their cap holds are so big, they have to renounce and re-sign via cap room.

Jul 06, 2015

@eberg15 Duncan and Manu as well. They are under-the-cap team

Jul 06, 2015

@eberg15 No. In order to fit everyone under the cap.
