We're less than 12 hours away from the start of NBA free agency, which begins - officially - at 6 p.m. E.T. this evening.

Several of the league's top free agents have reportedly already made up their minds, however.

Six big free agent deals are reportedly already locked in - or, at least, as close to locked in as possible as we approach the official start.

The six deals that appear to be locked in are:

  • Kyrie Irving to the Brooklyn Nets (4/$141M)
  • Kemba Walker to the Boston Celtics (4/$141M)
  • Klay Thompson back with the Golden State Warriors (5/$190M)
  • Kristaps Porzingis extending with the Dallas Mavericks (5/$158M)
  • Nikola Vucevic re-signing with the Orlando Magic (4/$100M)
  • Harrison Barnes re-signing with the Sacramento Kings (4/$88M)

The biggest free agents - Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Durant - are reportedly expected to take their time making a decision, meanwhile.

Jimmy Butler, one of the other top available players, could draw out his decision, as well, with several teams being interested and a sign-and-trade potentially on the table.

We'll find out what's actually true in a couple of hours. NBA free agency officially begins at 6 p.m. E.T.
