2010 NBA Free Agency Signings Analysis - July 13 (Last Weekend)
Sorry for leaving you all stranded this past weekend. I was in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for a bachelor party and had to take the weekend off in terms of free agency write-ups. Let me catch you all up Twitter-style. Here are moves from this past weekend summed up in 140 characters or less.
New York Knicks sign PG Raymond Felton to 2-year, $15 million deal
Plan R for Knicks? at least it's not for 5-years, 40 mil... NY needed a PG but he and Amare not the offseason Knicks were hoping for.
New York Knicks sign C Timofey Mozgov to 3-year, $9.7 million deal
Never heard of this guy, but 6-5 odds he plays more minutes than Eddy Curry this year... TIMOFEY!!!
Chicago Bulls sign G/F Kyle Korver to 3-year, $15 million deal
Good contract, good fit... Bulls needed a shooter and Korver shot a redunkulous 53.6% from three last year...
New Jersey Nets sign PG Jordan Farmar to 3-year, $12 million deal
Nets needed a backup for Devin Harris but $12 mil over 3 years seems like a lot for an inconsistent unproven commodity...
New Jersey Nets sign C Johan Petro to 3-year, $10 million deal
Baffling... he has averaged 3 pts and 3 reb the last two seasons... Nets are killing cap space by overpaying average players
Charlotte Bobcats sign F Tyrus Thomas to 5-year, $40 million extension
Larry Brown likes him... I'm not a huge fan so obviously I think this contract is insane... but Cats didn't want to lose him to Nets
Charlotte Bobcats sign F Dominic McGuire to 1-year, $900,000 deal
An athletic forward similar to the Ty Thomas mold... but for less than a mil, why not right?
Memphis Grizzlies sign SG Tony Allen to 3-year, $10 million deal
Surprised he left C's since Griz already have Mayo, Gay, Henry, Young on wing... guess money talks rather than gunning for another title.
Detroit Pistons re-sign C Ben Wallace to 2-year, $3.8 million deal
Still brings a physicality inside and took another home team discount... maybe he can help turn Monroe into a motivated force down low...
Golden State Warriors sign G/F Dorrell Wright to 3-year, $11 million deal
Never really busted out in Miami, maybe he'll have better luck in G-State... if not, this deal is a little pricey for my taste...
Los Angeles Clippers sign PF Brian Cook to 2-year, $2.5 million deal
Why any team would give him more than a 1-year deal for the league minimum is beyond me... it is the Clips tho I guess...
For the LAST TIME. Byron Maxwell has been VERY good this year and is having his best season of his career can we stop with the horrendous and embarrassing narrative that he's been up and down or bad. He's been the best player on our freaking team for last 7 weeks.
