So the Hoops season is over and the San Antonio Spurs managed to win the season trophy in the city of Miami, a great achievement for the Western conference team after their previous loss facing the Miami Heat.
Over the past weeks, there has been an uproar about who is staying where, how much money the players will get, and for how long are the contracts being extended. Luckily, many of these questions are starting to being answered as top players like: Lebron James, Lance Stephenson, Dwyane Wade and Carlos Boozer are settling their contracts.
Let´s begin with the man who has changed the way NBA action is viewed by thousands of enthusiasts, Lebron James. Lebron is returning to Cleveland, his home team and where he played for seven seasons as the deal with the Heat did not seem to work for him anymore.
This past week has been really controversial for Lebron as after 4 years he returns to the Cavaliers and will get approximately $42 million over two seasons and this is not a full sign up max deal with the Cavs. Many believe Lebron sees this as a trial period for him to make sure things will go according to plan.
“I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one,” James said. “And I take that very seriously.”
On the other hand, free agent Dwyane Wade re-signs with Miami Heat and he will receive a two-year, $31.1 million deal with an option for the second year. It has been reported Wade took about an $11 million pay cut over 2 years from the deal and came to terms with the team where is likely he will retire.

Then last Tuesday, the Bulls dropped a bomb when they used the amnesty clause to cut high-priced power forward Carlos Boozer after his several colorless seasons in Chicago.
Carlos epitomized professionalism in everything he did for the Bulls both on the court, and in the community, during his time here in Chicago. Over the last four seasons, Carlos’ productivity helped elevate our team to another level. I have nothing but respect for Carlos, and certainly wish him the best as he moves forward. stated Bulls general manager Gar Forman.
Then last, but not least important is free agent former Indiana Pacers shooting guard Lance Stephenson joins to the Charlotte Hornets. Stephenson averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game last season and he offers the experience and the leadership to push Charlotte during the coming NBA season.
