From 'buyout' to 'waivers' to transfers: changes in the 2021 market

Andre Drummond, LaMarcus Aldridge or Jeff Teague are some of the players who have left their contract to look for another place.


The NBA market has evolved over the weeks and, once the transfer period is over, it focuses on teams being able to give their final touches to the squads thanks to free players.

It is an upward trend for players who, having a contract of a considerable amount, get out of the same prior permission from the franchise that has their rights to seek a better opportunity to fight for the championship. They get the buyout (agreed exit), stay on the waivers (transition period to be a free agent) and are offered to the highest bidder.

Here is a review of those who are using this method in 2021:

Andre Drummond: out of the Cavaliers, signed by the Lakers

LaMarcus Aldridge: out of the Spurs, signed by the Nets

Blake Griffin: out of the Pistons, signed by the Nets

Jeff Teague: out of Magic, signed by Bucks

DeMarcus Cousins: out of the Rockets, signed by the Clippers
