This deal happening and being announced before free agency starts muddies the water for a lot of other teams. The spurs can now move on to a plan B (Rubio/George Hill, maybe Hayward) even trade Aldridge. Boston could now have an easier time swaying Blake. PG13 and the Pacers might have more options (bidding war with more teams helps the Pacers). This was an important firs domino to fall and makes the next few weeks even more interesting.
