The NBA's free agency period opened up on Sunday morning, and with it came a torrent of rumors, hearsay, wayward tweets and players meeting with teams.
With all the news flying around, it's hard to tell what is real and what is really dumb at this point.

Seedlings get planted, but they don't always flourish.
So, I'm here to tell you which of the seedlings growing out of the free-agent rumors will grow, and which ones are going to turn brown and wither away in the next few days.
