The NBA free agency 2017 period has seen a lot of player movement from team to team. Just recently, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves added new players to their rosters. For the Cavs, it was the signing of free agent Jeff Green. Meanwhile, Minnesota was able to add the services of longtime NBA veteran Jamal Crawford to their roster. Here's the latest information on these deals and an update on other player movements during NBA free agency this summer.

Green's deal

ESPN reported that Jeff Green signed a one-year deal with the Cavaliers. His new deal with Cleveland is worth $2.3 million.

Green has been in the league for nine years now and was the No. 5 pick by the Boston Celtics in 2007. He's played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, L.A. Clippers, and Orlando Magic. In his 2016-17 NBA season with Orlando, he averaged 9.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game in 22.2 minutes of action.

Crawford's deal

As of Saturday, ESPN also reported that longtime veteran Jamal Crawford signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The former Sixth Man of the Year Award winner signed a deal worth $9 million over two years with a second-year player option included.

Crawford has spent his most recent seasons as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. He was traded to the Atlanta Hawks this past week and reached a buyout agreement with the team on Friday.

That allowed him to enter free agency and sign with the Timberwolves. He now joins a team that also added All-Star Jimmy Butler in a trade with the Chicago Bulls, and Jeff Teague as part of free agency.

Other free agency moves

There's been a lot of movement this past summer across the league. One of the most recent high-profile signings was All-Star Gordon Hayward leaving the Utah Jazz for the Boston Celtics.

Hayward agreed to a four-year deal with the team worth $128 million.

Former Atlanta Hawks All-Star Paul Millsap also changed teams this summer. Millsap joined the Denver Nuggets within the past week or so on a deal worth $90 million over three years. Basically, the Hawks never made their star an offer, allowing him to sign with a new squad.

The Los Angeles Clippers lost All-Star Chris Paul but managed to re-sign Blake Griffin to a multi-year deal. The team also lost sharpshooter JJ Redick who signed with the Philadelphia Sixers. However, they added big man Danilo Gallinari who was formerly with the Denver Nuggets.

Other free agents to change teams have included Vince Carter and Rudy Gay. Carter signed a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings while Gay joined the San Antonio Spurs.

Other big signings this summer have included both Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant re-signing with the Golden State Warriors, and just recently, James Harden signing an extension with the Houston Rockets. There's yet to be any word on Carmelo Anthony, which is curious based on how quickly New York seems to be rebooting its roster.
