The 2014-15 NBA season is shaping up as we get closer to a new hoops season of unprecedented action. Many of the top player names on the free-agent market or on the trade block have already found their homes for the upcoming season, but there are still rumors whirl around the league about possible contracts that could come to production in the coming months.
- With Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo becoming an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season and Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe struggling to agree on a long-term contract, both players have become trade options for their respective teams. There is no questioning Rondo’s talent. The point guard is the ultimate all-around player at his position, racking up career averages of 11.1 points, 8.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game. It is clear from his numbers that Rondo isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in order to improve the team around him. source: http://bleacherreport.com/
- The Los Angeles Lakers have worked out eight players, including Michael Beasley.Typically thought of as a power forward, Beasley could spend time at small forward if the Lakers sign him. Beasley spent the last season with the Miami Heat. It was his second workout for the Lakers. source: http://www.theepochtimes.com/
- According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, the T-Wolves have sent Kevin Love to the Cavs in exchange for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a 2015 first-round pick. Minnesota, in turn, traded the pick, Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to the Philadelphia 76ers for Thaddeus Young and a $6.3 million trade exception. source: www.bleachreport.com
- the Philadelphia 76ers currently have a shade under $40 million committed to player salaries in 2014-15, and could have even less on their tab with Thaddeus Young off to Minnesota. That leaves them well below the league’s minimum team salary of $56.759 million and even further south of the $63.065 million salary cap. source: http://www.prosportsdaily.com/
- Raduljica was waived by the Clippers (via the stretch provision) on Friday, just three days after they had acquired him from Milwaukee. After one season in the league, he said he wants to stay (though it was “a little cold in Milwaukee”). He said he’s only heard rumors about any other teams that may want him and “I’m waiting to see what’s going to happen next.” source: NBA.com
- The Orlando Magic wouldn’t seem to be in any position to start committing serious money to any of their players. They’ve won just 43 games in the two seasons since Dwight Howard skipped town and still have a mish-mosh of a roster to sift through before they’re ready to start winning again. But the collective bargaining agreement, like time, waits for no man. Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris, two of Orlando’s most promising prospects, are both up for extensions ahead of their potential forays into restricted free agency next summer. source: www.bleachreport.com
- There’s no telling what kind of Kobe Bryant the Los Angeles Lakers and their fans will see this season after an injury-riddled 2013-14. What they shouldn’t expect, though, is to see the same Kobe who torched the league prior to his Achilles tear in 2013, or even the one who performed unevenly during last season’s six-game stint. The Lakers can only hope Bryant’s confidence is enough to get him and them back on track in 2014-15. source: www.bleachreport.com
