The rules were simple and were part of the reason that he chose Wade: Morey could only select inactive players through the 2K draft, unless they currently play for the Rockets. So James Harden, shockingly rated at 79 overall, was certainly an option for Morey. And that’s exactly who he took to complement Wade in the backcourt. The Rockets are known for their distinctive small-ball style of play, and Morey took that same approach to the game, though the league had not yet reached that type of modernity yet. Shane Battier (former Rocket) was next, followed by the likes of Nikola Mirotic, Jameer Nelson and Marcus Camby.
Free-agent players such as DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas — who played in the NBA this season — and those who weren’t on NBA rosters this season — JR Smith and Jamal Crawford, for example — are eligible to sign into open roster spots. Teams won’t be allowed to sign international players, such as Nikola Mirotic, who weren’t on NBA rosters this season.
“I wanted to spend free agency while on vacation in Greece with my family. Utah wanted to have a meeting on June 30 to sign me as the first player in free agency,” Mirotic said. “They offered me three years guaranteed, a great contract. I spoke to my wife and she told me to take what made me happy. I took a ticket for two days, a round trip, and I left. I was waiting at the gate of the Thessaloniki airport when I started to think: ‘What do I do at the airport? Why am I not with my family? The NBA?’. I said to myself: ‘Don’t do it Niko. If you go, you will sign.’ I left the airport and went back to the hotel. I told my agent that I wasn’t going to catch the flight and to apologize to Utah for not attending the meeting. “I’m going to take another path, I don’t want to continue in the NBA.”
Utah had targeted Mirotic, a floor-spacing big man, according to league sources. With him off the board, the Jazz turned to Bogdanovic to fill that outside-shooting role. Utah offered a four-year, $73 million contract — more than Indiana was willing to offer, according to league sources familiar with the process — while Bogdanovic relaxed on a beach overseas and his agent handled the negotiations.
