For now, the NBA career of former 2006 No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani seems to be over. After a decade in the NBA and a big downturn over the last couple of years, Bargnani has agreed to a two-year deal with Baskonia in the second best league in the world Liga ACB.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are probably happy that at least someone seems to be committed to them for the long haul. Newly acquired shooting guard Victor Oladipo is apparent;y seeking a max contract extension from the team. Oladipo who was the former number two overall pick is a solid two guard who averaged 16 PPG last season with 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists.
Harkless got better as the season went on and resulted in him starting every playoff game for the Blazers last post-season. He was a restricted free agent and was in no danger of signing elsewhere. Him remaining with the team only deepens an already solid roster in Portland.
The deal was agreed to in principle back on July 1st but now that all of the contract language has been sorted out, it has been officially announced. Last season, Beal battled injuries but still put up good stats in the games he managed to play.
It was clear last season that he was at the end of the line as he played just 15 minutes a game in 52 games played for the Heat. He did however sign a ceremonial contract with the Knicks prior to announcing this decision so as to retire a member of the Knicks. He was dominant in his prime but injuries plagued him in the twilight of his career. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
If he stops taking them, he should be able to play. It's unlikely that he'll be able to play a contact sport while on them, though, as this can potentially be a huge issue. It's very possible Bosh takes this issue to the NBA player's union if he and the Heat can't come to some sort of an agreement. Bosh still has plenty left in the tank and it'd be a shame to see him forced into an early retirement due to health problems. Stay tuned.
Varejao proved to be a quality defender, and excellent flopper, for Golden State last season and he will likely occupy a similar role this season. He isn't much of an offensive force, but he is a quality hustle player who can get those 50-50 balls. Once again, the guy is a great flopper.
Calathes wasn't in the NBA last season, but given his career numbers, that really isn't a surprise. For his career, he's averaging 4.6 points, 2.7 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game. Even if the Kings ink him to a deal, he won't be relevant in any fantasy format.
Well, all of this sure isn't going to help Rice's case of being picked up by a team before the season. These are pretty serious charges and the fact that he's been in trouble before isn't helping anything either. Remember that he was shot in the leg outside of an Atlanta nightclub last October.
Well, that was a short lived career considering he played just one year in The Association, but he must have wanted to end on top, as he captured an NBA title with the Cavs in his one season. Sure he wasn't an integral player on the team by any stretch of the imagination, but he can always make more money overseas, or he can just ride off into the sunset at the still very young age of 31.
