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...
Aren't you forgetting about Telvin Smith, one of the best young linebackers in the league?? Not only that, Myles Jack can easily slide into the MLB role, while Dante Fowler/ or Yannick Ngakoue rushes from the strongside LB spot. Sorry but, LB is definely not a major need for this squad. Nice try though smh
