With many NBA players still in free agency mode, it really is a matter of what team is going to offer what sum of money to bring them on. Players who are currently in limbo (but this can change in a matter of seconds) are LaMarcus Alrdige, Wesley Matthews, Reggie Jackson, Lou Williams, and more NBA free agents. This is what we know about key NBA Free Agency and Trade Rumors.
According to ESPN, some of the notable Free Agent Agreements that have occurred today and yesterday include Greg Monroe, who just signed a 3-year/$50 million max deal with the Bucks; Monta Ellis, who just signed a 4-year/$44 million deal with the Pacers; and Arron Afflalo, who just signed a 2-year/$16 million dollar deal with the Knicks.
For every free agent deal that is taking place this week, there are those who are really up for grabs and they know it. One of them is Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies, and another is LaMarcus Aldridge from the Portland Trailblazers, who has a lot of teams looking for him.
According to CBS Sports, Aldridge could be going to the Phoenix Suns as they have agreed to trade with the Detroit Pistons sending players Marcus Morris, Danny Granger, and Reggie Bullock into the second-round pick. It appears to be a "cap-clearing move", and the clearance of $8.4 million in funds could make the space to sign Aldridge. This is strange, as it looked like Aldridge would be headed to the Mavericks.
Speaking of the Dallas Mavericks, it looks like they didn't get Tyson Chandler and reports from CBS Sports show that they could be looking at DeAndre Jordan as their only free agent for the center position. It is possible that Jordan will be re-signing with the Los Angeles Clippers, and if that happens, then they could be looking to Indiana Pacers' center Roy Hibbert for a good trade.
According to Sports World Report, there are other big names being thrown around like a...basketball like Wesley Matthews, Reggie Jackson, Lou Williams, Ed Davis, Rodney Stuckey, Tobias Harris, and Robin Lopez. The Celtics and Knicks are going for Jackson, Matthews, and Lopez.
Matthews is also on the radar of the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, and Toronto Raptors. Jackson seems primed to return to the Detroit Pistons, but it is possible that he could swing to the Lakers or Knicks. Williams could leave Toronto as he could go to the Hawks, Knicks, or Pistons that are eyeing him. As for the other players, there are a lot of rumors going around and I'm certain that the moment I even write some forecast, it will be changed by facts.
Meanwhile, everyone's favorite free agents, Lebron James and Dwyane Wade, were just spotted at the Atlantis in Bahamas, according to a separate report from CBS Sports. Lebron is probably going to go back to Cleveland after his near perfect season there at the NBA finals, but as for Wade, he is the biggest question mark.
