NBA free agency started Friday night at 6:00 and by about 7:00, $1 billion in contracts had been signed.

And some of that money went to three Duke players: Kyrie Irving, Seth Curry and Cam Reddish.

Irving re-upped with Dallas after having been traded to the Mavs this past season.

Irving was responsible for about 12.6 percent of that billion with a $126 million contract for three years.

His Brooklyn teammate, Seth Curry, is now also with Dallas; his contract is for four years and $32 million. This is Curry’s third time teaming with Irving, so they must like each other.

And finally, Cam Reddish finally got to the Lakers, a team that has coveted him for some time. His deal is for two years and reportedly at the league minimum.

That’s a smart deal for LA, a team that needs outside shooting and probably for Reddish too: LeBron James is still an imposing figure and he’ll push Reddish.
