As the first calendar day of the 2021 NBA free agency window comes to a close, two more late deals were agreed upon by big men.
Center Richaun Holmes rejoins the Sacramento Kings on a four-year, $55 million deal. He has remained a King since the 2019 season. This will be his second consecutive contract with Sacramento, albeit this one is much richer.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania gave details of the new contract via Twitter on Monday.

Forward Semi Ojeleye has signed a one-year deal with the NBA Champion Milwaukee Bucks. The newly-crowned defending champs now have the Celtics’ role player to help in their quest to be the first team to become repeat champions since the Warriors.
Here is ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski’s tweet reporting the Ojeleye news.

On a busy first day of free agency, these two deals come in under the wire before NBA teams start re-negotiating their players who are ready to move off of their rookie deals. That window opens at 12:00am ET on August 3.
