    Nets had interest but the 1yr actually puts him in a better financial situation next yr for free agency. He might not be able to sign long term deals but he might not have to worry about taking a huge annual pay cut. Philly might produce a winning situation too. Smart get by him.

    Amir Johnson has agreed to a one-year, $11 million deal with the 76ers.
    The 76ers come up with another master stroke on their cap usage with another one-year deal, and they still have close to $16 million to give Robert Covington on an extension. As for Johnson, he'll obviously be coming off the bench and add some frontcourt depth likely when the 76ers go up against bigger lineups. This move is somewhat interesting because there is depth at the five with Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor, so keep an eye out for what that could mean for Okafor.

    Just read a Steve Kyler tweet on Hoopshype that says that Steve Mills is exploring options to clear cap space.

    Uh oh, only 2 ways to move bad contracts, find a real sucker (which has historically been our franchise) or give away a valuable asset in the process.

    I read one avenue is a Lee trade. I would prefer to trade Lee for something and roll with Holiday and Dotson as my SG....

    A decent GM should be able to move Lee for a 1st or a player like Bledsoe.

    Phx passed on pursuing Milsap because they want to be a dumping ground for short contracts/expirings to acquire picks, they want to go completely young. They are interested in trading Chandler and Dudley. They probably are open to moving Bleddy but they more than likely want a young prospect back

    If these reports are true, it certainly seems like we are already eyeing the 2018 lottery. This team without any significant free agent additions and Rose and Melo likely done as Knicks is going to struggle to win more than 30 games this coming season.

    Dion Waiters - G - Heat
    Dion Waiters has been talking to the Knicks, Bulls and Kings.
    If the Heat can't bring in Gordon Hayward, Miami would be the heavy favorite to bring back some Philly Cheese. Waiters has also said he is willing to take a hometown discount, which makes sense after he had his best year as a pro.

    Jose Calderon - G - Cavaliers
    Jose Calderon agreed to a one-year deal with the Cavs for the veteran's minimum.
    This isn't exactly the big fish the Cavs were hoping for, but it's a start. Calderon does fit with the Cavs as a backup because he's a terrific spot-up shooter, but of course there are the defensive liabilities. Calderon is 35 years old and he probably tops out at just 16 minutes per game.

    Man, when you think about what the Cavs would need to add to beat the Warriors in the finals next year, the last guy you'd think of is Calderon.

    While the Cavs are signing Calderon, the Warriors are resigning Iguodala. GS is like Tiger Woods used to be back in the day. You either bet GS to win the championship or if you like longshots, you bet the rest of the field.

    Re-signing both AI and Livingston was H-U-G-E.

    With Klay and DG and rookie Mccraw.... along with AI and Livy.... that's 5 guys who can cover all 4-5 spots on defense, and bring up the ball, handle point, on offense.

    These 5 a perfect supporting cast for your 2 superstars (KD and SC).

    After that? Who cares, really. Those 7 are so sound and perfectly assembled, all they need is for 2 "bigs" to give them minutes.

    In the playoffs, when you go 7-8 deep.... nobody can be as talented with their top 7 combined. You might match the star power, and a few teams can, but you can't keep up with the versatile depth of that complete 7group.

    I would think any 33 yr old would want a mult-year deal not a 1 year one. He got 23M just because he was willing to sign for 1 year, I have to believe not a lot of teams were offering 4 yr 68M Deals they were saying he was going to get.

    I agree, their D just went to hell when he's on the floor. Rumor is they're looking to trade Shump but not take back salary, trying to trim their luxury tax bill and making room to re-sign Korver.
