Lebron’s intentions were in the right place when he tweeted about Matthew Dellavedova’s offer from the Milwaukee Bucks. He just wanted to congratulate a friend on getting a nice offer on the free agent market but he indirectly made it clear the Cavs were already moving forward without him. The Bucks offered Delly a four year/$38 million dollar deal, which the Cavs have until July 10th to match since he is a restricted free agent. Well GM/Coach/Player Lebron tweeted his excitement for his friend and wished him good luck in Milwaukee, meaning there is no way in hell the Cavs are going to give that type of money to him. Delly won’t be part of a winner like he was in Cleveland but $38 million has a way of making you happy regardless of where you are. Check the gallery for Bron’s tweet!
We have an update! The deal is now official! Noah has agreed to the four year/$72 million dollar deal that was referenced earlier in this story. Now they will set their sights on finding a starting shooting guard. *Original story below* The Knicks expect to have a deal done with Joakim Noah by the end of today but it looks like he is already making it official! Noah posted a picture on his Instagram a short time ago where he is rocking a Knicks hat and added a simple caption of “Jah Bless”. This is a move Knicks fans have been anticipating for days and it appears the wait is just about over. There is pretty much no way the reported four year/$72 million dollar deal will fall through at this point but just to be technical, it’s not official on paper yet. It definitely looks like it is in Noah’s eyes though! Check the gallery!
Milwaukee Bucks guard, O.J. Mayo, who once was being referred to as the next Lebron coming out of high school, has now been kicked out of the league and is basically banned for life after he violated the league’s drug policy.
We are on day two of free agency and don’t expect the money to stop being thrown around today after $1.7 billion dollars were agreed to on day one. There are still some big names out there that will affect the contracts of role players and stars alike. Guys are getting seriously paid thanks to the increase in the salary cap and while most of the players appear to be getting overpaid, the market says these guys are worth it, so it is what it is! From Timofey Mozgov’s surprising deal with the Lakers to the Grizzlies keeping Mike Conley for an eye popping $153 million, we got you covered with all the deals!
Jay Z is a powerful guy, especially in the sports world with his Roc Nation Sports but for the first time in likely a while, he felt what it was like to be powerless. He reportedly tried to have Kevin Durant, who is under his Roc Nation umbrella, to meet with both the Nets & Knicks but apparently his request fell on deaf ears.
Jim Harbaugh has pretty much been a fan of everyone this summer. He has been having satellite camps around the country for high school kids and he generally wears a jersey of a local superstar from the area, such as Allen Iverson in Philly, Kobe in the Los Angeles area and others. Of course the jerseys are always tucked in his khakis but it feels like Drake might have gotten him excited enough to let it hang. After Drake’s appearance on SNL, where he showed the Michigan Wolverines some love during a skit that didn’t even air, coach heard about it and make sure Drizzy knew he was a real fan by tweeting his top five. Check the gallery for his list and in case you missed it, check the skit out below. It was pretty funny
Johnny Manziel claims he is starting to so sober as of today, July 1st, and while based on his recent behavior that doesn’t seem likely, we all hope he gets on track. The odds of him being in the NFL next season are slim to none but that didn’t prevent the league from suspending him for four games if he ever does sign with a team again. At the moment though that doesn’t seem to be a big deal for Manziel who was busy partying in Cabo with a playboy playmate before turning his attention to some other girls.
Jeremy Lin continues to live off of his “Linsanity” era with the Knicks. He announced this morning that he is signing with the Brooklyn Nets and Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the deal is for three years/$36 million dollars. To be honest, considering the inflated market thanks to the higher salary cap, this is a great deal for the Nets. It gives them flexibility to continue to bolster the rest of the roster through free agency as well. Lin tweeted a short time ago with the Nets logo behind him, saying “The Journey continues…thankful for the next chapter! #Godisgood”. Lin averaged 11.7ppg last season to go along with 3.0apg, not exactly eye popping numbers but the Nets needed help at the point guard position and as I mentioned earlier, this is somewhat of a bargain.
Hassan Whiteside announced earlier this morning that he was going to keep his talents in South Beach and resign with the Miami Heat. While details of the deal aren’t finalized yet, the contract should be worth somewhere around $98 million, which is a come up for a guy who has only been in the league a few years, despite being 27 years old. All of this is good news for Dwyane Wade, who will likely remain with the Heat as well, since they are now keeping Whiteside and Chris Bosh should be good to go for next season. Wade was happy for the young fella and he only had one question after the deal was announced. Check the gallery!
