Cleveland Signs Jeff Green
The Cavs have made their second signing of the offseason. They just acquired Jeff Green, signing him to a 1 year, $2.3 million deal.
This is a very decent pick up by the Cavs. Green is an athletic small forward who can score, shoot the 3 and he’s a decent defender with good size. He’ll be very valuable as LeBron’s backup, and could also take some pressure off James on the defensive end, if Tyronne Lue elects to make Green the primary defender on guys like Kevin Durant.
This deal is also very cheap, allowing Cleveland to make more moves.
If Jamal Crawford decided to sign with the Cavs, their bench will be looking a lot nicer than it did a year ago.
Raymond Felton Joins The Thunder
OKC has signed Raymond Felton to a 1 year deal. This is another solid move by Sam Presti. Felton is a decent backup for Russell Westbrook. Having Felton, alongside Paul george on the floor, should allow Billy Donovan to sit Westbrook, without the team falling to pieces.
The Warriors bring back another one of their guys from last year’s title run, signing Zaza to a 1 year deal.
The only guy Golden State has yet to re-sign is Javale McGee, but they are still confident that they can bring him back too.
Shelvin Mack Headed To Orlando
The Orlando Magic have signed backup PG, Shelvin Mack to a 2 year deal.
Bojan Bogdanovic And Darren Collison Join The Pacers
Indiana have made two solid pickups, adding Collison (who could be their starting point guard next year) and Bojan who can be an excellent complimentary shooter and scorer for them.
Tyreke Evans Signs With Memphis
Former Rookie of the Year, Tyreke Evans has signed a 1 year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies. Provided he is healthy, Tyreke should get an opportunity to start, as well as have some time at the point guard spot when Mike Conley goes to the bench.
This could be a great situation for Evans to rejuvenate his career.
