Contracts Held And Agreements Reached

On August 4, 2016, in Sporting News, by Buddy TB

NBAJames Jones will continue with LeBron James, as he has done in recent years in Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs have reached an agreement with the veteran forward estimated at 1.55 million dollars for a season. Jones, 35, of those 13 in the NBA and has won 3 rings, all with LeBron James in Miami 2 and 1 with the Cleveland squad. The shooter came to Cleveland in 2014 from Miami, his hometown where he played for 6 years.

 

The weight of Jones in the rotation is not very significant, but he can give out good support at peak times on the court and substantially in the locker room. Last season, the forward played 48 games averaging 3.7 points in 9.6 minutes with a 39.4% success from the triple.

 

Alan Anderson arrives at Los Angeles Clippers for the veteran minimum wage. The forward lands in California at a time where is still not known if Pierce is going to retire or not. The Clippers need to strengthen the position of small forward.

 

Currently, Clippers had only one player in that position, Wesley Johnson. Alan Anderson becomes the second pure forward in the squad awaiting the decision of Pierce.

 

The former Wizard would receive $1.5 million next season. And there is a physical question. The last course he could only play 13 games with Washington. To blame, his ankles, he was sent more than once to the operating table.

 

Serge Ibaka just landed in Orlando. After years in the Thunder team, the move has led him to a losing team where he can enjoy more prominence. But let us not forget that the power forward will be a free agent in 2017. And in that scenario the Toronto Raptors are viable.

 

The Canadian team could have done with Ibaka in mind in the next season. Says Doug Smith, authoritative voice on matters relating to Raptors. The player sits on the wishes of the team’s general manager, Masai Ujiri. For his defense, for his ability to run the court and for a good offensive touch.

 

Toronto is in need of a quality power forward. And it must not be forgotten that if Ibaka goes to the team, it would mean a great inner duo: the Spanish and Lithuanian Jonas Valančiūnas.

 

Ibaka, who is now on vacation as he did not participate in the Olympics this year he will have the opportunity to increase his numbers with Orlando and perhaps get a big contract. But it seems that the player would prefer to be be a part of a winning team. Not the Magic team.
