Extra Moves In NBA

Today, the Dallas Mavericks continue to add pieces to their roster. They added former 2012 NBA slam dunk champion Jeremy Evans to a 2 year deal worth the league minimum, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. The Jazz lose a fan favorite and a solid back up who eats  minutes for breakfast.

Evans will provide solid depth behind newly signed DeAndre Jordan and franchise leader Dirk Nowitzki

The Kings signed Kosta Koufos to a surprising 4 year deal worth $33 mil. The deal was reported by ESPN’s Marc Stein.  Koufos will add some solid defense and protect the rim with his life. Koufos can potentially start at the power forward position or split time with newly drafted Willie Cauley-Stein. Overall, good pick up because adding a defensive minded player next to a offensive minded player in Cousins (which Cousins is good defensively too) can have Cousins worry more on the offensive side of the ball instead of dropping back quickly to help the defense.

According to Basketball-Reference Koufos averaged 5.2 ppg last season. Now with him getting a chance to play more he could potentially get easily 10 ppg a night.

Pacers resigned versatile guard Rodney Stuckey to a 3 year deal worth $21 mil, according to RealGM.com. Stuckey adds experience and good solid 2 way play. Good depth to a loaded back court. Stuckey minutes will go up even more with the loss of C.J. Watson to the Magic.

Stuckey had a good first year with the Pacers and is looking to continue off his success.

The Lakers are back again in the news. What did the Lakers do now? The Lakers signed reigning 6th man of the year award winner Lou Williams. They agreed to a 3 year $21 mil deal, according to Shams Charania of RealGM.com and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Lakers also signed forward Brandon Bass. Yahoo Sports reported it, but no news yet for how much. I assume maybe a 2 year deal for $8-10 mil. Lakers are trying to move Nick Young aka Swaggy P to clear cap space for these 2 players and Roy Hibbert. Lou Williams is a shooter and will add solid 2 way play from the bench and is still a contender to win the 6th man award for next season. Bass will most likely come off the bench to give Julius Randle or Roy Hibbert a break and give you some non flashy play, but good quality minutes.

Lou Williams set a career high 15.5 points per game last season and Brandon Bass the past 2 seasons has averaged over 10 points per game, per Basketball-Reference.
