Talk player movement, rumors, etc here.
Kawhi Leonard agreed to a five-year, $90M contract extension with the Spurs.
And get ready for this one...
Anthony Davis agreed to a five-year... $145M extension with the Pelicans. WOO BABY
Wow! Good for Unibrow. He deserves it.

Free agent Aminu Al-Farouq has agreed to a four year, $30 million deal with Portland, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
Wow, that team dismantled quick.
My god, do you guy's think Draymond is asking for the same as Leonard? 5 years/$90 mil. I don't think we match that if another team offers him that kind of dough. He is a stud, but that is Super Star money.
Possibly and yes, I think they do. Cap is going up and so is market value.
Okay guys, new ones. Buckle up...
The Pacers are pursuing hard to close on a three-year deal with Monta Ellis.
Goran Dragic is re-signing with the Heat for five years, $90M. Fifth year is a player option.
Bulls and Mike Dunleavy agree to a three year, $14.4M deal. Third year has a partial guarantee.
Nets made it official with Brook Lopez & Thad Young. Lopez gets 3 years, $60M. Young gets 4 years, $50M.
Danny Green re-signed for 4 years, $45M with the Spurs and then they traded Tiago Splitter to Atlanta, thus opening the door to sign LaMarcus Aldridge.
4 years, $60M for DeMarre Carroll and the Raptors.
5 year, $70 for Khris Middleton and the Bucks.
Damian Lillard & the Blazers agreed to a 5 year, $120M extension.
Tiago Splitter to ATL. The Spurs are creating domino effects around the league, Splitter to ATL ensures Milsap to ORL & Carroll is already on way to TOR. Mills is soon to be traded, it seems, and Aldridge will be heading to SAS next.
Parker/Green/Leonard/Aldridge/Duncan...yikes. They need to replace Mills/Belinelli for other 3pt shooters, and that's a contender yet again.
EDIT: Spurs aside, Raptors & Bulls are real winners so far. Raptors have locked in the 1-2-3 positions, and that Dunleavy deal is a robbery! Got to respect the loyalty, heard LBJ wanted him. :lol:
By all the reports I see, I get this feeling Jordan is leaving the Clippers. And they traded Hawes. So unless they could land Tyson Chandler, they won't have a viable replacement because Monroe will probably go to NYK & Robin Lopez doesn't have the Clips on his list. Maybe they can kick the tires on Greg Oden or Andris Biedrins! :lol:
GM Doc Rivers, everyone!
Kevin Love returning to Cleveland. 5 years, $110M. Could be more if cap goes up.
Tristan Thompson, too. No set years, but it'll around $80M.
Tyson Chandler to Phoenix! They're bringing him into the meeting with Aldridge...lost as to what Chandler saw in the Suns.
Draymond Green & Warriors have broken off on extension talks...I think it just means Warriors were trying to snag him for a little under the max, pretty sure the FO will match all offers since he's an RFA.
They better show him the quan. He's seeing a lot of dudes getting paid.
Yep, agree with stuck. The Warriors want to see what other teams will throw at him. They'll match it, but there's no harm in not rushing to get a deal done.
Seeing reports that the Pistons offered Draymond 5 years, $90 million. Sheesh...
EDIT: Strike that, please disregard me and my naive faith in twitter. :?
Dont quote me on this but I thought the max he could get from another team is 4 years, $69 million. We can offer more than any other team.
That is correct. You cannot offer 5 years to a RFA under this CBA. Dime Magazine dropped that and failed to check their sources and the rules.
Here is a complete list of today's signings. No contract can be made official until July 9th...
Kings shipped Nik Stauskas, Jason Thompson & Carl Landry to Philly as a salary dump. They're going hard after Rajon Rondo, Wes Matthews, and/or ... (their most coveted option) Monta Ellis.
Arron Afflalo to the Knicks on a two-year, $16M deal.
Greg Monroe will NOT join him, as many expected, and instead signed for the max, three-years, $50M with the Bucks.
I LOVE this Bucks squad.
Monroe, Jabari, Giannis, Middleton, MCW
IMO pretty cool to see the Knicks AND Lakers pretty much get shut out!
Speaking of shut out, the Kings got shut out again. They offered 4-years, $48M to Monta and he accepted $4M less to go to Indiana instead. Sacramento is going to have to overpay to lure Matthews or Rondo their way. But even then, it's not a for sure thing, Monta being the first example.
3-years, $10.5M for Paul Pierce to the Clippers. But they won't have a viable center with Tyson Chandler signing with PHX unless they land maybe Robin Lopez.
