The NBA is currently in the midst of one of its busiest offseasons in recent memory.
Already there have been so many major trades and deals like the one that sent Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves, or the one that took Dejounte Murray from the San Antonio Spurs and landed him with the Atlanta Hawks, or the one that delivered Jalen Brunson to the New York Knicks.
But for all of those big changes, there are still many questions that remain.
Someone announce the Donovan Mitchell trade. Or the Kevin Durant trade. Or the Kyrie Irving trade. Or the Deandre Ayton sign-and-trade. Or the Collin Sexton mid-level exception.

Andy Bailey summed it up well on Twitter:
“Someone announce the Donovan Mitchell trade,” he said.
Bailey’s demands are pretty simple and straightforward but will they be met any time soon?
So Much Potential
There are still so many big trades hanging over the league right now and they all have so many questions tied to them.
Where will Durant end up?
Will Irving really leave the Brooklyn Nets?
Is Ayton headed to the Indiana Pacers or will another team sign the big man?
And what about Sexton: where will the Cavs star move to, if he moves at all?
It’s surprising that so many huge question marks remain after a few weeks into free agency.
One would have thought that most of this would have been solved already.
But when you are dealing with so much big talent, teams are going to take their time and not settle and only make moves when they are sure they’re getting a good return.
That means we could be waiting a few more weeks for answers to these nagging questions.
