NBA free agents can start inking deals tomorrow. Will Varejao sign an offer sheet? Will the Cavs go after anyone? Is it just this guy?
Derek Fisher could be interested in Cleveland, but he could also be sign with the Knicks or Lakers.
Mo Peterson looks to be set on the Jazz. Mo Williams looked like he was resigning with the Buck, but could take less money to join the Heat(?!).
I don't know what's going on, but if a young talented point guard is taking less money to join a winner, why isn't Danny Ferry stalking this guy?
Things I'm on the look out for:
- trade rumors. I don't see the Cavs making any major moves in free agency, mostly because none of the free agents are that attractive. Plus, I'd like to see them stand pat rather than throw money at a guy simply because he's a better PG than Larry Hughes and Eric Snow.
- At this point they need to sign the right players, not simply the 'best available'. This is how Larry Hughes came into our lives.
- If the Cavs do match Varejao, be on the look out for Drew Gooden trade rumors. If Andy is making more than $8 million a year, I don't expect him to be backing up Drew Gooden.
- If Varejao gets more than $9 million a season, you let him walk. $7-8 million... meh, I'd rather not, but you're always going to overpay for quality big men. But anything over $9 million is simply insane.
