Key dates and contract deadlines

The NBA season is over, which means all 30 teams are now in offseason mode.

These teams are already preparing for the 2022 NBA draft and free agency this summer. Here’s a look at the league’s upcoming schedule, along with important deadlines for teams and players to exercise their contract options. More than 30 players are in line for qualifying offers that would make them restricted free agents, and more than 100 players are eligible for rookie or veteran extensions, leaving teams with plenty to think about over the next few months.

We’ve got all the details on that and more, and we’ll continue to add to the information below as the NBA schedule evolves and gets closer to the start of the 2022-23 NBA season this fall.
