DETROIT – We’re tracking the latest Detroit Pistons rumors as the 2021 NBA Free Agency period begins on Aug. 2.

The negotiating period for NBA free agents begins on Monday, Aug. 2 at 6 p.m., and teams are allowed to officially sign players at the end of the week.

The Pistons will have some cap space to play with, but the Knicks and Spurs lead the league in cap space heading into the free agency period, according to Spotrac.

The Pistons have already made some moves, extending qualifying offers to Hamidou Diallo, Saben Lee and Frank Jackson, making them restricted free agents.
