Denver get Nate; Davis Return; & More

Basketball is a 365-day sport. NBA news is the same.

Let’s find out what happened this week.

News from this past week:

  • Baron Davis looking to return to NBA, according to reports. I’m not sure what he has left in the tank, but he could be worth the look
  • LeBron James’ Team USA career likely over. If I was James, with Olympic Gold already, I would focus on getting more NBA rings. Forget the Olympics, at 28 with 10 years in the league, it’s time to focus on his NBA career
  • Wizards begin contract negotiations with John Wall
  • Clippers reach agreement with Byron Mullens on two-year deal
  • Knicks’ Stoudemire unlikely to be allowed to play for Israeli national team
  • Tyreke Evans says he’d have no problem coming off the bench for the Pelicans. I love hearing this from a talented player. It shows that he will do whatever it takes to win. Give me more of these guys
  • Raptors sign point guard D.J. Augustin
  • Mavericks trade draft rights for guard Nick Calathes to Grizzlies
  • Mavs reach agreement with Gersson Rosas to become GM
  • Nate Robinson to sign deal with Nuggets. Denver pulled off a gem with this signing because Robinson has proved to be worth more than what he will be making in Denver
  • Harrison Barnes: ‘My role will remain the same—do whatever it takes to win’. Another classic example of team play at its finest. I love Barnes as a player and this sums up the reason
  • Knicks re-sign Kenyon Martin to one-year deal
  • Dwyane Wade to pay ex-wife $5 million in divorce settlement
  • Kyrie Irving says he’s happy in Cleveland, excited about changes to Cavaliers roster. It’s time for Cleveland to make a push at the playoffs. It’s been long enough. Make it happen, Dan Gilbert
  • Brandan Wright agrees to two-year deal with Mavericks
  • Mavericks officially sign Monta Ellis. Good signing for Dallas, and I think Ellis will like the system
  • Bynum’s contract contains no incentives, just $6 million guaranteed
  • Free agent center Greg Oden to make decision next week picking from Sacramento, Miami, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Antonio and Dallas, according to sources


Biggest takeaways from the week:

  • LeBron James is officially done from the Olympic Games. Do you blame him? It’s great to play for your country and all, but he has to focus on his job. He’s 28 years old with more than a decade played in the league. He has to focus on his game in the NBA rather than having to worry about European three-point teams
  • Free agent Greg Oden selecting a team soon is a major story. A handful of years ago, Greg Oden was the next big thing in the NBA. He made an instant impact. However, it was brief. Oden has barely played in the NBA due to injuries, but is now healthy enough to give it another go. I think Miami would be a great fit for the big man
  • Nate Robinson signs with Denver. I love this signing for Denver simply for the fact that he didn’t cost much. You would think that after seeing what he did in the postseason he would be due at about $5 million per year. Instead, they get him for two. Very underrated signing
