Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News
News before Independence Day:
The Celtics look to have signed Jason Terry to a three-year deal. Nice sixth man there. Wonder if that means Ray Allen is done in BeanTown?
Phoenix looks like the leader for Goran Dragic and will pay him pretty big money.
Landry Fields is probably headed to Toronto for around $7 million per year. Huge overpay, but strategic move by the Raptors, as it hurts the Knicks with Steve Nash, whom Toronto wants desperately.
Jeremy Lin might move on to Houston to play PG. He's being courted today and tomorrow.
Nets ink Spanish League star, Mirza Teletovic, a PF, to their full mid-level exemption. (Which would theoretically mean Howard becomes impossible to afford.)
Like Terry as a player, but I wonder how much he has left. Looks to me like he's going to be the sixth man with Bradley starting alongside Rondo. Bye bye, Ray Allen. (IMO) If Jeff Green re-signs (which looks probable), that team looks solid, with a very good first six player, plus the youth of Sullinger, Melo, and JuJuan Johnson.
I think they need a true backup center (Siemsma?) and another power forward (one of Houston's castoffs?) and they'll be ready to challenge for the Eastern Conference Crown yet again.
