Now, it looks like the Portland Trail Blazers is possibly the destination for him who could give the best offer to the Philadelphia 76ers. Trade scenario is saying that Blazers will receive Noel plus multiple draft picks while the 76ers will acquire C.J. McCollum.
His scouting agents are looking for bench players. Bench players that can rebound and be dominant inside the post as Tim Duncan. Someone else that get to the basket and get others in the game as Tony Parker. Players who can get blocks and guard superstars like Kewhi Leonard.
Much like the Cubs rented Chapman last year to help them win a World Series, the Yankees can look to rent Darvish who will be a free agent at the end of the season. Darvish would fit their present need, but giving up too much for a rental is not the best move. The more intriguing option would be Sonny Gray, who has been a silent killer lately, flying under the radar with a 1.37 ERA in his last six starts. Gray would fit in with the new look Yankees. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, earlier this week, executives from teams interested in Gray claim the Yankees are the front-runner. However, with the Dodgers heavily in the mix for Gray, that remains to be seen. Still, the asking price for Gray is steep. The Yankees of the past wouldn't blink an eye on doing whatever it takes to get what they want, but times have changed. The Los Angeles Dodgers now have the Steinbrenner philosophy.
His career highs so far are with the Timberwolves. He played in 57 games, his field goal (2-point shots) percentage is at .421, his 3-point percentage is at .304, his free throw percentage is at .641, and he has his high in rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks also. The only record he has broke since then was his free throw percentage that changed to .900 with the Raptors. In his whole career so far he has played in 151 games, has 472 rebounds, given 77 assists, has 58 steals, has 27 blocks, and 658 points. He has only played in four seasons, so this is impressive. Although he hasn’t won any championships, he has great achievements and who knows how his future will
We’re deep into the dog days of summer, and the NBA offseason is officially cooling down. The NBA Draft has come and gone, big free agents have drawn their battle lines and people are almost done having a heart attack about Timofey Mozgov getting $16 million per season from the Los Angeles Lakers. With nothing but the always-exhilarating Summer League games ahead of us, here are the biggest winners and losers of the NBA offseason.
According to CBSSports, the Los Angeles Lakers could throw in a package of guard Jordan Clarkson, guard Lou Williams and forward Luol Deng as trade offers to the New York Knicks for Carmelo Anthony. This is not bad for a return for the Knicks acquiring one young and two veteran players that are solid contributors.
Thompson is a rising star from last season’s NBA championship Golden State Warriors. He had a nice 2014-15
Blair is fourth on UCF’s career block list with 114 blocks and had his best statistic season as a Knight last year, his junior year, when he averaged 7.8 points per game in 24.9 minutes. He has aspirations of playing overseas after the season.
Monroe, who've been regular in the rumors mills for the past few months, are now again in the spotlight and it seems the Bucks is decided to move him. Monroe, who is just averaging 9.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks after 11 games, saw his playing minutes gone down in the last three games. And many observe that he is not fit to Bucks head coach Jason Kidd's system and this could be a hint that he'll be on his way out.
For the first few years of Jackson’s career, he served as the backup point guard to Russell Westbrook. When Westbrook was injured, though, Jackson stepped into the starting five and really showed what he had
We do know that Bennett is done after an even more miserable sophomore year in Minnesota. The Wolves will shave off some of Bennett’s $5.8 million salary for this season, and they clearly couldn’t give Bennett away. They peddled him everywhere, including to teams with cap space to absorb him in exchange for a token top-55-protected second-round pick Minnesota would never see, per several league sources. No one bit. The Wolves probably could have dumped him on Portland or Philadelphia by attaching a second-round pick, and most second-round picks aren’t worth $5.8 million. But Minnesota’s upcoming second-rounders will be high, and if Glen Taylor is willing to eat most of that $5.8 million to preserve the 37th pick, that’s good for the franchise. Knowing Philly, it’d have demanded more than one second-rounder to get him, anyway. Such a deal would have netted a nice trade exception, but a lot of those expire unused.
The Bullets had first crack at offers, ranging in the high 8 figures and actuals would change as the bidding continued, but the Bullets were not the only ones looking to Howard. The Miami Heat was also interested and would come into the play with their own offers to be considered by Howard. During these proceedings, Alonzo Mourning and many others were working their own deals with the Heat as well as the Bullets. During this time Pat Riley indicated to Mourning that he would eventually be the highest player in Miami. This statement would result in a complete unraveling of the most promised line up of players for this NBA team and a potential of huge success.
The Philadelphia 76ers just completed their second straight season with fewer than 20 wins, and that was unfortunately the goal. To the confusion of many NBA fans, this simply means that everything is going to plan in the city of brotherly love. General manager Sam Hinkie, is sticking to his rebuilding plan of asset collecting, and it is bound to pay off for Philly at some point. The question is; how long will it take for the 76ers to finally build a respectable team?
He was the 24th overall pick selected by the Los Angeles Lakers. He played for a total of 13 seasons with the Lakers, with his first 8 seasons from 1996 to 2004 and with his return to the ballclub in 2007 to 2012.
Casspi was fifth on the team in both scoring and rebounding (8.9 PPG and 3.9 RPG). The Kings should look to keep him on a deal that pays around $3-6 Million per year. Entering his 17th NBA season at 39 years old, Andre Miller is obviously nearing the end of his career. Miller can still provide value for the Kings as insurance at point guard behind Darren Collison and Ray McCallum. Miller is a favorite of coach George Karl from their time together with the Denver Nuggets. Unless Miller decides to retire it would be surprising to see him suiting up for another team. Derrick Williams has not lived up to the lofty expectations placed on him after being selected with the number 2 pick in the 2011 draft, but nonetheless he has proven that he has a place in the NBA. Williams’s play picked up after the Kings acquired Andre Miller at the deadline. Miller and Williams formed a nice pick and roll tandem and developed great chemistry together coming off the bench. Despite this Williams is likely to try and find a new home where he can have a fresh start and get more
