The opening of NBA training camps and free agency is finally here. It's been a crazy Thursday and Friday with rumors around the league.

Here's a look at the latest news and developments.

Dwight Howard

According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Howard has made it known that he would like to be traded to the New Jersey Nets.

Chris Paul

Paul was traded to the Lakers for what amounted to a couple of hours before NBA Commissioner David Stern nixed the deal. There is also a report that he may now seek legal action against the league.

Chauncey Billups

After the Knicks let it be known they are signing Tyson Chandler at the expense of Billups, the point guard let it be known he isn't happy and left Knicks training camp without the club's permission to return to his home in Denver.

Baron Davis

The Cavs are expected to waive the point guard today by using their amnesty clause.

Mike Dunleavy

The Indiana Pacers forward agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million dollar deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, where he is expected to back up both the shooting guard and small forward positions.

Caron Butler

Butler wasn't on the market long before the coveted small forward inked a three-year, $24 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Tayshaun Prince

With Butler signing with the Clippers, Prince took the next best available option for him and will return to Detroit with a four-year, $27 million deal.
