Today, the Pistons sign Aron Baynes, a forward/center to a 3 year deal worth around $20 mil, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Baynes will give quality minutes from the bench. The Trail Blazers added Ed Davis today, according to Yahoo Sports. The deal is worth 3 years for $20 mil. Seems we have a job battle growing and set to have a open job at the power forward position. Ed Davis and Noah Vonleh will battle most likely for the job.
A trade was reported by Yahoo Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski. The trade included the Suns and Pistons. The Pistons received Danny Granger, Marcus Morris, and Reggie Bullock, while the Suns get a future 2 round draft pick in return. Good deal for both teams. Suns need to move cap and make roster room for a big free agent that they are about to sign after bringing in Tyson Chandler yesterday. Pistons get quality depth for the bench and can have a good second team.
The Bucks spent more money on a player. They signed Greg Monroe for 3 years for $50 mil and the 3rd year is a player option, according to Yahoo Sports. Monroe will help them offensively or add more offense to a big scoring team. Monroe isn’t the best defender, but he has his moments.
Monta Ellis finds a new home in Indiana. He signed for $44 mil over the next 4 years, according to Espn’s Marc Stein . Good for the Pacers and Ellis. Pacers needed to add Speed and scoring help to this roster because Paul George can’t do it all. Monta Will fit the Pacers well. Also Monta Eliis snubbed the Kings offer. Kings were offering a lot more money.
Grizzlies and Marc Gasol are set to sign for 5 years over $100 mil, according to league sources. Marc staying in Memphis is huge for the team and the style they run on the court. Gasol anchoring that defense is a key and i wouldn’t want any other center to do so. Marc Gasol is a top 3 center in the league and is getting paid like one.
the former 5th overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft Thomas Robinson agrees to a 2 year deal with the Nets, according to RealGM.com. Good pick up to ensure you have a good back up behind newly signed Thaddeus Young. Thomas is more of a post player than Young. Young is more of a stretch 4 forward.
