There is an old perception that James wasn’t comfortable trying to recruit marquee players to come to Cleveland during his first tenure because he was afraid of how he would be perceived if they declined. James said he simply had a hard time convincing anyone to come to Cleveland. Hughes signed with Cavs, but he could never stay healthy. “I recruited [before] I left here,” James said. “I just didn’t win nothing so nobody wanted to come with me. I recruited. I recruited Michael Redd. I recruited Joe Johnson. I recruited Chris Bosh. I recruited a lot of guys. I just didn’t win. They didn’t want to come to Cleveland.”
Shams Charania: Michael Redd says Derrick Rose made right decision in sitting out entire season after tearing his ACL. Redd returned early wanting to play.
Former Bucks All-Star guard Michael Redd will attend tomorrow’s Bucks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game (7 p.m.) to thank the fans of Milwaukee and officially announce his retirement from the NBA. Redd will address the crowd at the BMO Harris Bradley Center between the first and second periods.
Waiving Howard creates an open roster spot for a small forward who can defend. The options include signing swingman James Anderson, cut just Thursday by San Antonio, or a veteran sitting at home such as Michael Redd, who has had knee problems of his own; pulling a wing player such as Chris Douglas-Roberts or Coby Karl, who played on the Wolves’ summer league team, from the Development League; or trading for a player such as Raja Bell, who is sitting home in exile from Utah.
Darren Wolfson: Well, there’s one domino with Josh Howard waived (torn ACL). Michael Redd could be the next… or someone else. But someone likely. #twolves
TrendBasket: Carlos Arroyo, Tarence Kinsey and Michael Redd are offered to Galatasaray. (@turbasket)
He remains optimistic and views Leandro Barbosa‘s late signing with the Boston Celtics and Eddy Curry signing with Dallas just days before the start of the season as hope that he’ll, too, soon find a new home. “Ultimately, I have to stay ready, which I am, as far as in the gym, and stay positive,” Howard said. “I don’t think my career’s over.” Other notable players still looking for a team: Guards: Derek Fisher, Gilbert Arenas (in talks with Chinese team), Baron Davis, Earl Boykins, Mickael Pietrus, Michael Redd, Maurice Evans, Jason Kapono. Forwards/Centers: Kenyon Martin, Shawne Williams, Quentin Richardson, Bobby Simmons, Bill Walker, Jamario Moon, Renaldo Balkman, Ryan Gomes, Troy Murphy, Josh Powell, Derrick Caracter, Ben Wallace, Greg Oden, Sean Williams, Tony Battie, Mehmet Okur.
Darren Wolfson: A follow-up from the weekend: Told now the #Twolves thought they had Michael Redd for a non-guarantee, but he changed his mind last second.
Internet rumors persist that veteran sharpshooter Michael Redd is among the players the Griz are pursuing to round out their roster. But the team has not expressed interest in Redd or any guaranteed contracts because of payroll considerations.
Ronald Tillery: re: Griz roster. The team isn’t pursuing guaranteed contracts. Michael Redd isn’t on the radar as rumored because he would cost $1.7 million
For a man with $100 million in earnings and two knee reconstructions, Redd was a treat for the Suns due to his work ethic, positive attitude and occasional scoring bursts. He is 33 and a defensive liability, but his results — and a bit of the Suns athletic trainers’ magic dust — resurrected interest in his shot.
Childress, 29, worked hard and was an ideal teammate, but he did not put a dent of impact on the standings for Phoenix. He was part of misplayed reactions to losing Amar’e Stoudemire. He was unnecessary at an overloaded position and a difficult fit as a poor-shooting wing with overrated defense. Childress can take a minimum deal to prove his worth again. Chicago and Washington showed interest in him and Redd.
Anthony Tolliver has been in the mix for some time, but the team also has interest in free agents Michael Redd, Terrence Williams and Shawne Williams. Redd has a connection with Ernie Grunfeld since Grunfeld drafted Redd, a former all-star and Olympic gold medallist, for Milwaukee in 2000. Redd averaged 8.2 points last season in Phoenix after missing most of the past three seasons with knee ailments.
Apparently no interest from Cavs on Ohio guy Michael Redd, but teams mentioned as possible suitors include the… Wizards, Nuggets, Grizzlies, Bulls, and yes, Thunder, who still have a spot available in the backcourt after Derek Fisher’s departure.
Michael Redd’s agent, Kevin Poston, said the free-agent guard is taking his time in finding a team. “I know he can still play,’’ Poston said of the often-injured 12-year veteran, a former All-Star and Olympic gold medalist. “He knows he can still play. He’s made a lot of money (in his career). What matters is the team, what matters is the coach. He’s taking his time.’’ Phoenix and Chicago had shown interest in Redd, who turns 33 Aug. 24, but apparently have backed off for now.
Phoenix and Chicago remain in the mix for free-agent shooting guard Michael Redd. Suns will have continued interest if Hornets, as expected, match Eric Gordon offer sheet.
Phoenix and Chicago remain in the mix for free-agent shooting guard Michael Redd. Suns will have continued interest if Hornets, as expected, match Eric Gordon offer sheet. Bulls let go of swingman Ronnie Brewer and now will make decision by Sunday on whether to keep shooter Kyle Korver. Redd could end up as a cheaper alternative.
Brendan Bowers: Michael Redd told me today he feels the best he has in years & that he is receiving interest from multiple teams right now #NBA #FreeAgency
KC Johnson: Add two names to Bulls’ free-agent possibles: Michael Redd and Jerryd Bayless, who just became a UFA after Toronto pulled qualifying offer.
Three players the Cavs could pursue in free agency are Omer Asik, Michael Redd and Jonny Flynn. Asik is a restricted free agent center who is in line for a raise after making $1.9 million as a backup center with the Chicago Bulls.
Cavaliers fans may want to keep an eye on what happens with Michael Redd. The veteran shooting guard spent this past season with the Suns and is an unrestricted free agent. The Cavs will need to replace the leadership of Jamison and Anthony Parker, and Redd is a born-again Christian who fits into the type of culture GM Chris Grant is trying to implement. “Every team needs veterans, regardless of the process,” said an Eastern Conference executive. “Redd would be a good fit there coming off the bench.” Redd, 32, is a Columbus native and Ohio State product.
