The Raptors add some depth today by signing Bismack Biyombo. The center signed a 2 year deal worth $6 mil, according to Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski. Biyombo isn’t great on the offensive side of the ball, but he is great defensively. He is a huge shot blocker and is a player who you don’t want to run into. He is like Serge Ibaka of the Thunder.
The Magic added a veteran guard in C.J. Watson for $15 mil over the next 3 seasons, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports. Watson has been a productive player since he stepped in the NBA.Watson is a good defender and good shooter overall, but excels at shooting 3’s. Watson owns a career average of 7.8 points a game and has a career 3 point percentage of .383, per Basketball-Reference.
Today, the LaMarcus Aldridge sweepstakes ended. The Spurs won the contest and take home the biggest prize in free agency. LaMarcus is heading back home to be close to family and friends. LA has a great chance of helping Tim Duncan get his last ring and Aldridge can get his first. Aldridge joins a dynasty and joins a legacy of big men in San Antonio. First, David Robinson, Tim Duncan and now LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge signed a 4 year deal for $80 mil and the 4th year is a player option, according to Yahoo Sports reporter Adrian Wojnarowski. LaMarcus Aldridge is one of the better power forwards in the league, also he can post up, shoot mid range and hit 3’s too. Aldridge plays good defense and passes well for a big man. Aldridge is another Tim Duncan. With the San Antonio Spurs signing LaMarcus Aldridge I am penciling them as my pick to win the NBA championship this year.
