Hayward is the biggest surprise of free agency so far. All signs pointed to Indiana, but now he'll continue his career in Charlotte.

The Raptors have retained their man as Fred VanVleet has reportedly come to an agreement on a long-term deal to return to Toronto after being one of the top free agents on the market.

The 76ers were also reportedly interested in Augustin's services, but the Bucks may have been able to offer him a more substantial contract.
