Here is a quick little update on what is going on in the world of the NBA. It involves information dealing with injuries, playing time, contract issues and much more.
Amir Johnson has decided to forgo free agency and instead chose to sign a 5 year, $34 million deal to stay with the Toronto Raptors.
Mike Miller has been offered a 5 year, $30 million deal from the Los Angeles Lakers. He has also had meetings with the Heat and the Knicks. It is rumored though that both LeBron James and Dwayne Wade want Miller to sign with whichever team they sign with.
Brendan Haywood was offered a mid-level exception by the Detroit Pistons. That probably won’t be enough to bring the 7 footer to Detroit.
Rudy Gay has agreed in principle with the Grizzlies to a 5 year, $66.5 million deal, the max allowed for a player with his tenure in the league.
John Salmons and the Bucks are nearing a deal that could be worth close to $40 million over 5 years. It seems as though there are just some minor details that need to be hammered out.
Channing Frye has been offered a 5 year, $25 million offer from the Suns but has decided to check out all of his options first. His game is perfectly suited for the Suns and he most likely won’t get a better offer somewhere else. So you can pretty much assume that he will be staying in Phoenix.
Jordan Farmar was not tendered a qualifying offer from the Lakers so he is officially an unrestricted free agent. He has received interest from multiple teams, including Indiana who is looking for PG help.
