NBA Free Agency Begins At 12:00 Tonight
Tonight at the stroke of midnight EST, the free agent feeding frenzy will begin.
HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: Some long running questions about some big names and their destination for next season will finally be answered.
– Where will Steve Nash finally end up?
For two years we’ve been hearing Nash’s name in about every conceivable trade scenario; and nothing ever happened. The Suns drafting of Kendall Marshall this week says a lot about how interested the organization is in bringing Nash back. Also, their supposed interest in Eric Gordon is another nail in the coffin that was Nash’s time in Phoenix
– Where will Deron WIlliams go?
No matter where he ends up, will he finally play for a title contender? Mired in both Utah and New Jersey in his career, D WIll has been one of the NBA’s most productive PG’s. But can he lead a winner? Or will he forever be a great individual talent on bad teams?
– Ray Allen to the Heat?
The most the Heat can offer is a midlevel exception; three years 9.7 million. After the Heat’s amazing performance from beyond the arc in the Finals imagine adding the NBA’s all time three point shooting leader into the Knicks. It will be really interesting to see what other teams enter into the mix for his services.
– Apparently, Brandon Roy’s knee is fine
Strangely, he may be the most sought after of all available unrestricted free agents. After being regarded as an “also ran” for two years, there are at least five teams vying for his services. If we are to believe the chatter, the Pacers are willing to do just about anything to get him.
– Will we finally see the flurry of trades we were promised pre-draft?
As team’s negotiate a way to sign players that can’t afford, inevitably some trades will happen. Will the Lakers FINALLY deal Gasol? Will Houston finally deal Luis Scola?
