NBA teams have doled out about $3 billion in contracts over the first 96 hours of free agency in 2016 and followed that spending spree by dropping at least $3 billion more in 2017.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will trade Richard Jefferson and Kay Felder to the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
