Houston Rockets re-sign PF Luis Scola to 5-year, $47 million deal
These two just seem like the perfect match. Scola fits the Rockets style of hard-nosed play with his unselfishness and ability to mix it up down low. The Argentinean spent a good chunk of last season playing out of position at center since Yao was sidelined. With Yao back, Scola will switch back to the power forward position and should build off a career year. The $47 million might be a bit steep, but Daryl Morey has a plan and unlike what David Kahn is doing in Minnesota, I trust Morey.
New Orleans Hornets re-sign C Aaron Gray to 2-year deal
Terms of this signing have not been released yet, but I would assume it is for slightly more than the league minimum... at least I would hope. New Orleans is in need of some depth inside and Gray is a big body who can give Emeka Okafor a couple blows per night but won't do much more.
Washington Wizards sign C Hilton Armstrong to 1-year deal worth league minimum
Armstrong is nothing more than a defensive-minded reserve center who can occasionally provide a boost of energy off the bench. He is not very physical or much of a scorer but for the league minimum, Armstrong is not a terrible backup.
@Steel Willy The funny thing is, OLB, S, and CB entered free agency as bigger needs than DL, RB, and WR and in free agency, DL, RB, and WR depth were all added while out of OLB, S, and CB, depth was added to only one of those positions, yet Walt ignores CB, S, and OLB but gives them RB, WR, and DL. Another funny thing is offense is the stronger unit, yet the majority of the picks for Pittsburgh is offensive players. Not to mention, Buddha Baker and Derek Rivers being available at pick 62, and Walt having Pittsburgh pass on both is insanity
I like the change for the lions in round 1, adoree jackson had to go. DT from Auburn is a need, not as pressing as others (DE, LB, CB) but with him being a pass rusher it kinda makes up for it. RB and TE round 3 and 4? I don't hate it but it sounds more Martin Mayhew than Bob Quinn. I thin the run on defense in 4 out of the first 5 picks.... The Kareem Hunt pick I like but hopefully later than a 3
