Every off season we sit glued to tv, radio, and Internet sites to see what improvements and or changes our favorite NBA team will make. Cause lets face it only one team wins it all each season and the 31 losers gotta look to improve. If there’s one thing we know about NBA Free Agency is that big names are always on the move. Lookin for bigger dollars or a better chance to win. This summer is no different with some of the biggest names in the NBA makin moves and money. Names like Joe Johnson, Antwan Jamison, Jason Kidd, Deron Williams, and of coarse Dwight Howard. And thats jus a few of the many names in this busy NBA Free Agency.
We’ll Start with Deron Willams and Joe Johnson. Speculation was rampant on weather Deron Williams would go to Dallas or stay wit the Nets as they move to Brooklyn. Well his decision was made a little easier when the Hawks traded All Star Joe Johnson to the Nets. The very next day D-Will re signed wit the Nets for 98 million for 5 yrs. While the Nets also re-signed forward Kris Humphries. Stayin in the East The New York Knicks have been makin plenty of headlines wit there moves or lack of moves some fans would say. Free Agent PG Jason Kidd agreed to a 3 yr 9 million deal wit the Knicks. The Knicks also brought back PG Raymond Felton, but they lose star guard Jeremy Lin to the Houston Rockets who paid Lin 25 mill for 3 years. The Knicks also brought back veteran center Marcus Camby to bolster the frontline.
Keepin it in the East wit the 2 teams that were in the East Finals Boston and Miami. Its been complete opposite off seasons for these 2 teams. Boston has seen better off seasons as they loss perennial All-Star Ray Allen to free agency but snatched star guard Jason Terry from the Mavs. The C’s also re-signed Kevin Garnett and F Brandon Bass. While the Champion Heat have to deal wit a case of the rich get richer. You ask where did Ray Allen go when he left Boston? he took his talents to South Beach to join the Heat. Joining Ray in Miami is his old Sonics teammate Rashard Lewis. While the other Florida team hasn’t faired so well. The situation with C Dwight Howard is a train wreck at best he will not be gettin his requested trade to Brooklyn there’s rumor he might go to LA but as of now no one knows and its a mess.
Out West things are not quite as hectic in this NBA Free Agency. A few big name vets made moves and some stayed put. Grant Hill Signed a 2 yr deal wit the Clippers while Vet guard Chauncy Billups re signed wit the Clippers while he continues to rehab his injury. Guard Jamal Crawford also finds himself back on the west coast as he joins the team in Lob City. The other team in LA made headlines when the Lakers grabbed Veteran guard and former MVP Steve Nash. While its rumored that Dwight Howard will be a Laker soon and Bynum will be headed to Cleveland it aint happened yet. Be Sure to keep it tuned to my blog for the latest news on NBA Free Agency.
