We look at the biggest free agent signing in every NBA team's history in the latest episode of the Over and Back Classic NBA Podcast.

Adam Johnson of Basketball Pantheon joins us for a wide-ranging discussion -- from the biggest free agent decisions such as LeBron James to the Heat and Cavs, Shaquille O'Neal to the Lakers, and Kevin Durant to the Warriors, to less-heralded but still signifcant signings such as Hedo Turkoglu to the Raptors, Greg Monroe to the Bucks, Kenny Anderson to the Blazers, and Peja Stojakovic to the Hornets.

We also discuss Allen Iverson and Gilbert Arenas' short stints in Memphis, Charles Oakley changing the culture in Toronto, Andrei Kirilenko and Brandon Roy joining the Timberwolves, Horace Grant bringing credibility to Orlando, Al Jefferson becoming the biggest Bobcat, how the Gail Goodrich signing derailed the Jazz, Baron Davis' big move to the Clippers, Tom Chambers becoming the first unrestricted free agent with the Suns, Alonzo Mourning's cursed time with the Nets, Antonio McDyess returning to the Nuggets, Scottie Pippen joining an aging superteam in Houston, a thin history of free agents in OKC, and Derek Anderson's forgotten time in San Antonio.

We also look at Ben Wallace leaving Detroit for Chicago, Gilbert Arenas changing the game in D.C., the Hawks wooing Dikembe Mutombo, Moses Malone putting the Sixers into the promised land, the Pistons finding Chauncey Billups, the Lakers' mixed track record of star free agents, Vlade Divac beginning an era in Sacramento, M.L. Carr being more than a towel waver, Rick Barry returing to the Warriors, and Bernard King finding a fit in New York.
