With NBA free agency opening at 6 p.m. EST, things are about to get crazy. Make sure to check back in with CLNS’ live free agent tracker, as we’ll be updating with developments on the Boston Celtics and major news around the league.

June 29th: The Boston Celtics are already expected to replace Kyrie Irving with former Hornets guard Kemba Walker. The two sides are expected to finalize a 4-year, $141 million deal when free agency opens.

Update: As the clock strikes 6 p.m., Kemba Walker is officially a Boston Celtic.

June 30th 2:24 p.m. The Portland Trail Blazers lock up star guard Damian Lillard to a massive extension.

3:09 p.m. Danny Ainge appears to be up to his usually tactics. A three team trade between Celtics, Nets and Hornets including a trio of point guards would give the Celtics the ability to operate over the keep, potentially allowing them to keep Al Horford and/or Marcus Morris.

The deal would also open up the full Mid-Level Exception for the Celtics, valued at roughly $9.2 million.

Update (5:17 p.m.): The Charlotte Hornets will sign former Celtics guard Terry Rozier to a 3-year, $58 million deal via a sign-and-trade.

This move appears like it could be the first of many for the Celtics, which could eventually lead to the return of Al Horford.

Update (6:50 p.m.) ESPN Front Office Insider Bobby Marks shared on ESPN’s The Jump that the potential three-team sign and trade deal is likely “dead”. Boston and Charlotte are still expected to complete a double sign and trade involving Walker and Rozier.

Marks also added that Boston is still working on one final pitch to Horford, but doesn’t expect him to go back to the Celtics.

3:50 p.m. As the Celtics look to replace center Aron Baynes and potentially Al Horford, Enes Kanter is a name to watch.

5:00 p.m. Kevin Durant will announce his free agent decision tonight at 6 p.m. on his company owned sports business network, The Board Room, Instagram account. However, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports he will join Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn.

Along with Irving and Durant, the Nets also expect to land free agent center DeAndre Jordan.

Update ( 9:55 p.m.) DeAndre Jordan has made his deal with the Brooklyn Nets official. Both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant took less money than the max to allow Jordan to receive the $10 million annual salary.

5:24 p.m. Al Horford’s future is still unclear, but a future with the Celtics still appears unlikely, even wafter Boston’s recent cap space maneuvers.

5:30 p.m. As for one of the Celtics main competitors in the East, the Milwaukee Bucks appear to be bringing back two key contributors from last years team.

The Bucks are also reportedly set to bring back guard George Hill, but the trio of moves are expected to leave them without restricted free agent guard Malcolm Brogdon.

Update (6:31 p.m.) Former Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon agreed to a 4-year deal with the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers acquire Brogdon’s rights from Milwaukee for a first and two future second round picks.

6:42 p.m. Other than Enes Kanter, the Celtics will certainly be keeping an eye on the center market.

Update (10:31 p.m.) One potential option for the Celtics, Derrick Favors, is closing in on an agreement to go elsewhere.

Update (11:43 p.m.) As the Celtics still search for a big man, another potential name is off the board.

7:09 p.m. Another top Eastern Conference Team is locking up another one of their own, this time the Philadelphia 76ers resigning forward Tobias Harris.

9:06 p.m. While the 76ers re-signed forward Tobias Harris, they are now sending Jimmy Butler to the Miami Heat in a sign and trade deal.

9:08 p.m. Former Boston Celtic Al Horford is officially out of town, agreeing on a 4-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.

10:32 p.m. The Golden State Warriors and star guard Klay Thompson still have an agreement on a five-year, $190 million max contract.

11:30 p.m. The Warriors are not done. A late night Woj Bomb: Restricted free-agent point guard D’Angelo Russell is on his way to Golden State via a sign and trade.

11:41 p.m. To clear cap space for D’Angelo Russell, the Warriors are sending forward Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies.

July 1st 12:23 p.m. The Denver Nuggets locked up one of their own guards to a massive max deal.

2:15 p.m. The Celtics locked up a big man of their own in center Enes Kanter.

8:34 p.m. Danny Ainge and the Celtics reportedly aren’t done, as Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald writes: “the Celtic roster you see today will not be all that you see in the middle of October.”

9:09 p.m. The Celtics, who still lack bigs, could be meeting with center DeMarcus Cousins.

10:35 p.m. Former Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas has found his new home.
