July 7-8 (Official Days 1 & 2) Free Agency
Since today is in fact, officially the second day of free agency signing, we skipped the first day to implement more transactions in this update. Your 2016 NBA Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers sign the Birdman, Chris Andersen. Marreese Speights on the other hand, goes to the Los Angeles Clippers while Festus Ezeli signs with the Portland Trail Blazers. That makes a total of 6 players that the Golden State Warriors have lost this offseason. Derrick Williams has been signed to the Miami Heat, and we all know that the #23 has been retired by the Miami Heat, we will wait for official jersey numbers before we edit further. Allen Crabbe leaves Portland for the Brooklyn Nets. Jeremy Evans signs with the Indiana Pacers. Boban Marjanovic leaves the San Antonio Spurs for the Detroit Pistons, with DeWayne Dedmon replacing him.

If you weren't able to download the July 1 update that was released the before, there was a Follow Up Pack required for it that you're going to need to download if you haven't already. You can always check it out here. If you've already downloaded the July 1 Follow Up Pack from the previous update, you're only required to download the Appdata Files for the July 8 update.
We would like to remind everyone of the notes from the initial v4.0 update. The contracts are not updated, we are waiting for the contracts to be finalized for us to adjust to the in-game salary cap since salary caps cannot be modified in NBA 2K14. The second round NBA Draft rookies do not have guaranteed contracts in the NBA yet so we did not include them in any of the rosters yet. Even if they already have guaranteed contracts, we still need to wait for them to make the final cut of the teams. When they make the final cut, we will include them probably close to Opening Day for the NBA. If some signings were not added yet to the update, it most likely means that the missing signing is part of the update for the next day (in this case, July 9). The update is called July 8 update due to the fact that the official second day of Free Agency in the USA was July 8. NLSC is now back up and running so the NLSC mirror now works.
