Starting July 1st, arguably the focal point of the offseason gets underway. Free Agency. Some players have officially opted out. Others will hold tight amid the breathless speculation about their futures. It’s not at the level of 2010 or 2014 but quite a strong free agent class this summer – especially in frontcourt positions. The question is… How many of the big names will actually end up changing places? We already know enough to make some educated guesses about the eventual landing spots of the league's most prominent upcoming free agents. Join @jaihov, @lock_tha_great and the producer of the show @howeezy26 as they discuss the hottest sports news of the past week and analyze potential landing spots for the 2015 NBA Free Agency class.
Last summer, we ran a post on SheridanHoops.com detailing which players received the biggest raises in salary from the previous year. The list was made up of three types of players.
A. Players who received maximum salary deals as their second contracts, such as DeMarcus Cousins.
B. Former first-round picks who received sizable contract extensions, although not necessarily max deals, such as Larry Sanders.
C. Second-round picks who had been making near league minimum and signed new deals, such as Lance Stephenson.
The latter category has some candidates this year as well. Among them are forwards Draymond Green of Golden State, Jae Crowder of Boston and Khris Middleton of Milwaukee.
We've already explained how Middleton's improvement over the last two years and the stratospheric leap made by the Bucks from the worst team in the league to a playoff team could land the restricted free agent a contract averaging eight figures.
But given that Middleton doesn't turn 24 until August, appears to have a ways to go before reaching his ceiling and the huge increase in the salary cap coming in 2016, is it possible that he receives a maximum contract offer this summer, either from the Bucks or another team?
And can the Bucks - who have a dicey new arena issue on their hands - go the max on Middleton, with extensions due down the road for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Michael Carter-Williams and Jabari Parker?
Chris Bernucca of SheridanHoops.com answered those questions and others about an important offseason for the Bucks with Greg Matzek of WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee.
On this weeks podcast we will be discussing the aftermath of all the free agency that has been more active then the city of Pompaii having an orgy. We will anyalize all the players who we think have fantasy value and which players now have decreased their fantasy value. In the end free agecy is like me ordering a hooker.....you never know what your going to get. One minute you got more then you barganed for, the next minute you haling a cab for the tranny who fell off the subway. So tune in and see which teams made as poor of a decision as I did with the hookers last week........and which teams are quiet geniuses.
