Woj reports that the Indiana Pacers have reached a 4 year/22.6 million dollar contract with Harry Giles. They also will resign Justin Holliday, but details of his contract are not released.
"What does this mean for Miles Turner?" Bill Simmons posted on twitter.
Fascinating. My interpretation has been that Kevin Pritchard, like Larry Bird before him, has made mostly savvy decisions in the face of difficult financial constraints. Giles gets a second chance on a hitherto forgettable career - and an exit from an impossible situation. This is not onerous money for the team, either, and so, despite Bill Simmons, I’d bet that this means nothing for Myles Turner’s future in Indiana.
Suns Aron Baynes two year, 20M, team option
Congratulations! Rich contract, in my estimation, but it’s only for two years - meaning that his value to a young developing team is maximized without hobbling their future.
Raptors Marc Gasol one year, 26M
Makes perfect sense.
Talks broke down between Serge Ibaka and the Raptors. Ibaka reportedly is willing to go somewhere that can guarantee more years.
This is the Al Horford 2019 situation. The team is drawing a line, an older player is looking for security.
Paul Milsap reportedly listening to a long-term offer from the Orlando Magic after the Nuggets failed to reach out to his agent. Milsap was reportedly looking at offers in Orlando at various points in his career.
Maybe he’d be a replacement for Ibaka? Toronto looks like a good fit for him, and they’ve got a better chance than Orlando for a title.
Celtics have signed Brad Wanamaker to a one-year minimum.
I don’t think that his game gets much respect around here, but he’s got things that he does well - like get to the line a lot; and he led the NBA in FT%.
Clippers resign Marcus Morris for three years and 30 million.
Movin on up. That’s what, double what he made in Boston.
Montrezl Harrell reportedly looking for a contract in the range of 20 million dollars a year over four years. Right now the Clippers appear content to let him go find an offer.
I guess I would have paid him and taken a firmer line with Marcus Morris.
Tristan Thompson will sign with the Lakers for the mid-level over four years.
So this is LeBron getting the guys he’s comfortable with around him? Old familiar pattern? They’ve got Javale, Dwight (apparently), and AD getting Center minutes already.
Woj reports that Beasley and Hermangomez have both agreed to deals to resign with the Wolves
