    Free Agency

    I know a lot of people on this board hate the NBA, but I enjoy watching the trades, and free agency signing. This thread is to discuss NBA free agency signing and possible rumors and trades.

    NBA free agents: Hedo Turkoglu to visit with Portland Blazers - ESPN

    and . . .
    NBA free agency: Houston Rockets target Magic free-agent center Gortat - ESPN
    HAHA

    Yes I was laughing at Gortat to Houston. You would think there is someone out there who averages better than 3.8 pts and 4.5 rebounds.

    But that's only averaging 12.6 min/game. He actually averages out to be a 12/14 guy per 40 min. Not bad.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Free Agency

    Yeah, if you want to look at Gortat's stats, look at his ppg/reb per minute and his stats when Dwight Howard was suspended. He's serviceable. He's nothing special, but he is serviceable.

    Re: Free Agency

    Gorat is probably the 2nd best backup center in the league after Big Z.

    Guys relatively young and is solid. Plus Houston may not have the services of Yao for ... ever. They need to stockpile some Center options.

    He's already saying that he had an offer for the MLE which is about 5.4 million I think.
    Be interesting to see where the Bucks Villienueva goes wether that is Cleveland or Detroit.

    As a Bulls fan I say good riddance. Who really needs a guy that plays NO DEF and is astreaky offensive player at best. It is going to fun kicking gordon and Pistons around next year. Hopefully that means Hinrich is staying. Hated the guy as a jayhawk, but as Bull he has my respect.

    Pistons are getting solid players at solid prices ... now if they hadn't f'd things up with the AI trade.

    I have mixed feeling about losing Gordon. I do believe he was the teams leading scorer for like the last 5 years.

    If they still had Chauncey's contract, they wouldn't have the luxury of giving out absolutely awful contracts right now. Bill Simmons said it best: Statement from Pistons to fans: "Look, any time you can tank a season for the chance to spend $95 mill on 2 non-AllStars, you gotta do it."
