Every Free Agent Signing So Far and Accompanying Knee Jerk Reactions

It’s all happening in free agency and we’re here to keep you up to speed.

If you missed our first list of player transactions, check it out here.


Montrezl Harrell – Los Angeles Lakers (2 years, $19M)

After what we saw from the Clippers in the second-round, I’d get the hell out of there too.

Dwight Howard – Philadelphia 76ers

Can Howard keep it together when he isn’t in a “this is your last damn chance” environment?

Marc Gasol – Los Angeles Lakers

Just to recap, the Lakers have lost (or traded) Rondo, Bradley, Green, Howard and McGee…

But they’ve signed Schroder, Matthews, Harrell and Gasol.

Good Lord.

Serge Ibaka – Los Angeles Clippers (2 years, $19M)

Ibaka’s signing saved what would’ve otherwise been a disastrous offseason for the Clippers.

They would’ve had next to nothing up front and they simply couldn’t afford to get worse, especially with the Lakers getting even better.

Bogdan Bogdanovic – Atlanta Hawks (4 years, $72M)

Just when there was some hope that Milwaukee could convince Giannis to stay, their deal to acquire Bogdanovic fell through and he signed with Atlanta instead.

This will undoubtedly be one of the pivotal moments we look back on if Giannis skips town next year.

Gordon Hayward – Charlotte Hornets (4 years, $120M)

Here are the last four major contracts Mitch Kupchak has signed in free agency:

  • Gordon Hayward: 4Y/$120M
  • Terry Rozier: 3Y/$56.7M
  • Timofey Mozgov: 4Y/$64M
  • Luol Deng: 4Y/$72M

It’s easy to forget that this is the same man who worked under the great Jerry West at the Lakers and oversaw five championship teams in LA.

Danilo Gallinari – Atlanta Hawks (3 years, $61.5M)

That’s a lot of money for a 32-year-old with an alarming injury history.

But the Hawks are determined to make the playoffs, and if Gallo can stay healthy, he’ll certainly help them do that.

Derrick Jones Jr – Portland Trail Blazers (2 years, $19M)

Shout out to Derrick Jones Jr, who went from pure dunker to legit player.

Alec Burks – New York Knicks (1 year, $6M)

Once again, the Knicks have completed a grand total of zero signings that actually move the needle.

Bismack Biyombo – Charlotte Hornets

Please tell me they aren’t still paying him $17 million a year.

THUNDER RECEIVE: George Hill, Josh Gray, Kenrich Williams, Zylan Cheatham, Darius Miller, a protected first-round pick (via Nuggets), two second round picks


What a trade for the Pelicans. They essentially swapped Jrue Holiday for boatload of picks, Eric Bledsoe and  Steven Adams.

CAVALIERS RECEIVE: JaVale McGee, 2nd round pick

LAKERS RECEIVE: Jordan Bell, Alfonzo McKinnie

The Lakers needed to open up space for Marc Gasol, and JaVale McGee was the one to make the unfortunate move from LA to Cleveland, a cruel and unusual punishment indeed.

THUNDER RECEIVE: Trevor Ariza, Justin Jackson





GRIZZLIES RECEIVE: Mario Hezonja, Desmond Bane

CELTICS RECEIVE: future pick from Grizzlies



KNICKS RECEIVE: Omari Spellman, Jacob Evans, second-round pick
