Somehow Scotty Hopson has got 2 B traded 4 himself. Been dealt 3 times since Thurs (Cle 2 Char 2 NO 2 Hous). He must become new Harry Chiti
Me and reezy been sleep all day..
Signing Anderson was important for the Nets. Now gives them a guaranteed four veteran wings (Johnson, Anderson, Kirilenko, Bogdanovic).
It was easier to sell the whole sentimental reasons thing when homefield advantage in the World Series wasn't involved.
Another flood warning? It's become like a daily occurrence!
Great wrk out 2 start the day
This Home Run Derby is right up there with Hamilton and Abreu. Man. What a show!
Jeter, Hall of Famer to be, described as "great" in interview with ex-teammate Aaron Boone. "First of all, I'm not great," Jeter says. Oh.
That $127.8 million, which will likely be tops in the NBA again next season, would be about $65 million less than what they spent last year.
Including both salary and luxury tax commitments, the Nets will be at about $127.8 million for 14 players for the 2014-15 season.
With the signing of Anderson and impending signings of Bogdanovic and Brown, the Nets will have 93.5 million committed to 14 players.
With Paul Pierce gone, Alan Anderson's role should increase, making him an important piece. Good re-signing at an economical price again.
Alan Anderson's deal is worth a little less than $3 million over two years. The second year is a player option. Good signing for the Nets.
Time 2 eat good!!!
Just got a good run in time 2 grind 2 the max otg!!!
Started off with nothing I was hungry..
To be clear: can see the rationale behind passing on Pierce. It's a sound business decision. But that's not how they've operated previously.
Here's the truth. Nets went for mercenaries and Kevin Garnett is collecting his last check.
What a pretty play by Gotze
So Nets don't want effective Pierce cause he costs too much. But they're are "excited" to pay more than double for ineffective Garnett. Bull
Is this incredible game really going to be decided by penalty kicks?
Planet of the apes was cold
Get 2 running
Who making tht good Sunday meal though?
Good morning world
Of course the Pierce news broke while I was at a wedding in California. There's never a dull moment on the Nets beat.
It took Pierce about half the season to get over the Celtics. After that, he was as big a part of Nets resurgence as anybody.
And while $125 million is a lot, it's almost $70 million lower than last year, which is insane to think about.
When Bogdanovic and Brown are done, the Nets' payroll and tax commitments will be somewhere in the $125 million range for 13 players.
Still, the loss of Pierce after one season isn't exactly what was expected when the deal with the Celtics was put together last June.
That would give them a chance of ducking under the repeater tax next season, which is something they would like to do if possible.
Once the Nets complete the signings of Bojan Bogdanovic & Markel Brown, they should have about $76 mil on the books for 15-16 for 8 players.
The spin on this will be interesting, to say the least. We've heard a lot about the importance of leadership and continuity.
Big savings from 2013-14, when Nets spent $197 mill in salaries and luxury taxes. With current roster, they're looking at like $125 mill
League sources say Pierce moving on will not impact Kevin Garnett's decision to return for a 20th NBA season. Nets expect him back.
I'm sure at this point the Nets want Garnett to retire.
I expected Pierce to wind up either back with the Nets or with the Clippers or Bulls. But that's a nice move for the young Wizards
Nets had the chance to re-sign Pierce and passed, according to league sources. Would have cost them upwards of $20 million in luxury taxes.
Source confirms that Paul Pierce has agreed to sign with the Wizards.
People are killing LeBron for taking less money to go home & killing Carmelo for taking the most money to stay. As usual, players can't win.
For those who've asked about possibility of Marquis Teague getting cut: would cost multiple millions in tax. Would be shocked if it happened
Wizards were wise not to spend $8 mil a year on Trevor Ariza. They just spent the 3rd pick in last year's draft on a SF. Need to play him.
This is happening http://t.co/Cj0zBohGCv
Anthony Morrow is one of the best guys in the NBA, as well as one of its best shooters. Great pickup for the Thunder.
