You’d be hard pressed to find a more entertaining day of free agency than what went down on July 8 — from emoji travel wars to Blake Griffin’s sense of humor about barricading the door to DeAndre Jordan’s house. In the end Jordan stayed with the Clippers and Mark Cuban and the Mavericks were left out in the cold.

It was also unprofessional.

Which is why you will see a push from NBA teams to change and shorten the moratorium. That’s not going to be easy, the moratorium is part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement — the union would have to agree to a change. And the Clippers’ Chris Paul is the union president. But there will be a push.

It’s all covered in this latest PBT extra.
