Let's start another thread for the 2018 free agency deals: - CP3 signs a 4-year, $160 million deal to stay with the Rockets. Awful deal, but they keep their core together in order to try to win a ring or two. Hey, at least is not a five-year deal... - PG signs a 4-year, $137 million deal to remain a Thunder. And, as I said in another thread, I think it's a ruse and he just wanted to sign for as much as possible and will demand a trade in one or two years. In any case, there's a player option for the third year. - Jerami Grant also stays with OKC, signing a three-year, $27 million per year contract. Overpaid? At this point, yes. But PG wanted to keep him, which probably helped... I like Grant, tho. Plays hard and is still developing, so it might be a good deal down the road. - Spurs re-sign Rudy Gay, 1-year, $10 million. He opted-out of a contract that would have paid him $8.8 million and earned $1.2 million more with this deal. I didn't expect him to re-sign with the Spurs, but hey, it's not a bad deal. He proved during the playoffs he still can be useful. - My favorite deal of the day, Nikola Jokic signing a max deal, 5-year, $148 million with the Nuggets. Jokic can score, can rebound and is the best passing big man in the game. Defense is not great (nor even good), but he changes the game on the offensive side for his team. And he was a second round pick... well deserved extension. - Denver also signed a 4-year, $54 million deal with Will Burton, with the last year being a player option. It's a good deal (for Burton, particularly) for a guy that showed plenty of promise and who will be the Nuggets starting SF this next season. He's a solid starter at this point of his career and should be a tradable guy if Michael Porter Jr. develops nicely. - Dallas signs DeAndre Jordan to a one-year deal, close to the $24.1 million he had signed with the Clippers, a contract he opted-out in order to sign with Dallas. And this is a weird one... not in terms of fit, because he's going to be a good fit with a Dallas roster that had a big hole to fill at the center spot, but in terms of years. It's weird he signed only for one year. Maybe he's just testing the waters and will sign a multi-year deal next season, but it's a weird one. To keep making the same money for the same duration, it would have made more sense for the three sides involved to work a sign-and-trade. - Doug McDermott gets three-years, $22 million from the Pacers. Another weird deal. Til he proves himself, McBuckets is the typical guy you sign on a year-to-year basis. Oh, well... - Joe Harris stays with Brooklyn, two-years, $16 million. He played well last year and gets his reward with this deal. Nice for both sides. - KD signing a two-year (a one plus one, actually) deal for $30 and $31.5 million to remain a Warrior. Already talked about this one in the other thread. - Belinelli is back with the Spurs, 2-years, $12 million. He's going to add outside shooting to a team that really needs it. Good deal. - Casspi signs a one-year deal with Memphis. No specifics yet on the money. Memphis is already going to tank next season? - Ed Davis signs a one-year, $4.4 million with Brooklyn. I always liked Ed. But he would have been a much better player in the 90s, this era of basketball is not for him. - Ersan Ilyasova signed a 3-year, $21 million deal with Milwaukee. And he's a good fit there, actually. Better than Jabari ever would be for a Budenholzer team. And the third year is not guaranteed, which makes me like the deal more and more for Milwaukee. - And Trevor Ariza is not going to be a Warrior. The Suns are going to sign him to a one-year, $15 million deal. How many wing players do the Suns need? And, to finish this post, a very important information in order to add context to all the spending. Cap is set at $101.9 million for next season, but it raises to $109 million for the 2019-20 season and to $116 million for the 2020-21 year.
