From ‘buyout’ to ‘waivers’ to transfers: changes in the 2021 market

The NBA market has evolved over the weeks and, once the transfer period is over, it focuses on teams being able to give their squads their final touches thanks to free players.

It is an upward trend that of the players who, having a contract of a considerable amount, leave the same previous permission of the franchise that has its rights to seek a better opportunity to fight for the championship. They get the buyout (agreed exit), stay on the waivers (transition period to be a free agent) and are offered to the highest bidder.

Here is a review of those who are using this method in 2021:

Andre Drummond: out of the Cavaliers, signed by the Lakers

LaMarcus Aldridge: out of the Spurs, signed by the Nets

Blake Griffin: out of the Pistons, signed by the Nets

Jeff Teague: out of the Magic, signed by the Bucks

DeMarcus Cousins: out of the Rockets, signed by the Clippers

Gorgui Dieng: out of the Grizzlies, signed by the Spurs

Austin Rivers: out of the Thunder
