Milwaukee Bucks re-sign SG John Salmons to 5-year, $39 million deal
Even though they have already acquired Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts via trade, Milwaukee acted quickly in re-signing Salmons who opted out of the final year of his deal to become a free agent. He was critical in the Bucks' run to the postseason, filling in for the injured Michael Redd and teaming with Brandon Jennings to become the go-to players. This deal seems to be fair for both parties involved and adds to an already very productive offseason in Milwaukee.
Los Angeles Lakers sign PG Steve Blake to 4-year, $16 million deal
The two-time defending champs needed to find an upgrade at the point this offseason and didn't waste any time in adding Blake. Is he an upgrade over Derek Fisher or Jordan Farmer? Slightly. But with only their mid-level exception available and a weak free agent point guard class, this seems like a reasonable contract. This signing probably marks the end of either Fisher or Farmar's days in Hollywood.
@chuckster all you do is post insignificant journal entries with no means to an end or idea of where you going or where you been....records???? Save the tough talk we can meet anytime a simple response with records will suffice
I don't see this ending well. I don't think its a good idea to take the under on 2 teams in the same division, especially with low numbers. One team beats the other, then all they need is a few fluke wins. Anon is absolutely right about new coaches getting the most out of their teams. And although I agree the eagles are going to contend, I'm not completely sold. Lets look at lane's 5-1 record, Browns, bears, 3rd string cowboys, giants where the offense put up less than 300 yards and a good steelers team. So you have 1 quality win. My concern would be wentz's struggles on the road which is why I wont bet it. Under on the jets is just free money though.
