2016 NBA Draft Recap: Reaction and Analysis
Brett Squires

The Jazz have signed free-agent forward Joe Johnson to a two-year deal worth $22 million.

Johnson played 57 games for the Nets last season, averaging 11.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.5 three-pointers per game. He was eventually bought out and signed with the Heat for the final 24 games where he stepped up his play and averaged 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 52 percent from the floor and 42 percent from three-point range. With the Jazz he will not be expected to carry their offense which will allow him to feed off of Gordon Hayward and be more of a spot up shooter and move off the ball which should benefit him.

Al Horford held four meetings Friday and plans to make a decision on where he will sign over the weekend.

With the Hawks agreeing to terms on a 4-year, $70 million deal with Kent Bazemore and the acquisition of Dwight Howard on a 3-year, $70.5 million deal, this makes resigning Horford unlikely given the lack of cap space. There is some talk of the Celtics trying to getting Horford to agree to terms before they meet with Kevin Durant on Saturday, so that's something to watch.

Kent Bazemore agrees to a 4-year, $70 million agreement with the Atlanta Hawks.

This news means Al Horford has no chance of a return to the ATL. The Hawks used their two draft picks on potential Bazemore replacements, so I'm not sure this move makes that most sense, but they'll have Baze ready to take on a bigger role next season with Jeff Teague in Indiana. His fantasy ceiling should increase next season.

Knicks and Joakim Noah have officially agreed on a 4-year $72 million deal.

Noah won't sign his deal until at least July 7. This is a lot of money to give to an injury prone 31-year-old center. He only played 29 games last season and had an awful shooting percentage. 38.3 percent from the field and 48.9 percent from the charity stripe. He is not a good fantasy option.

Suns have agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with Jared Dudley.

After spending four years in Phoenix earlier in his NBA career, Jared Dudley is returning to the Suns. Dudley had his career-high 12.7 points per game in Phoenix during 2011-12 but has struggled in the last three years with three different teams. He has been relatively durable missing just 14 games in the last four seasons combined. Dudley is 30 years old and past his prime. He should get minutes as a stretch four with some time at the three, but it likely won't be too much because of their rookie power forwards, Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss.

Pelicans have come to an agreement with E'Twaun Moore.

E’Twaun Moore who worked his way up from fringe NBA player to rotation player. He plays both guard positions and is a good defender. The Pelicans are signing Moore to a 4 year deal, worth $34 million.

Nuggets and Bulls have been the strongest pursuers of free agent Dwyane Wade.

The Nuggets would be a strange choice for the veteran since at this stage in his career he would figure to look to join a contender. The Bulls would seem to be a good fit, especially if Pau Gasol moves on. Wherever he ends up, Wade will be a solid contributor wherever he may land.

Mavericks are not involved in the recruitment of C Ian Mahinmi.

Mahinmi teamed with Jordan Hill to split time at center, and give the Pacers a nice 1-2 punch at the position. Mahinmi averaged 9.3 points, and 7.1 rebounds in his 25.6 minutes per game. In fantasy, he is a target late in deeper leagues, but made for a nice DFS option as a money saver at center. His fantasy value hinges quite a bit on where he lands in free agency.

Kris Humphries is a strong possibility to return to the Nets.

Humphries has not been fantasy relevant since the' 11-'12 season, which was the last to see him average double-rebounds in a season, and nothing going into 2016'-17 that seems to change that.
