Free Agency Preview – Jakob Poeltl

By Matt Esposito Nothing about the pronunciation of Jakob Poeltl’s name makes sense to me and my Americentric world; a sure sign that I could use more culture in my life. Like me, your favorite NBA team could also use more Poeltl. While the Spurs have a contractual edge on signing the 25-year-old restricted freeContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Jakob Poeltl”

Free Agency Preview – Christian Wood

By Andrew Lawlor In Mario Kart on Nintendo 64, the mother of all tracks is Rainbow Road. With its length and difficulty, it separates the pros from mere amateurs. Racers have a choice at the beginning of the track. If you jump off the edge, and time it juuuuuuust right, you bypass a large partContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Christian Wood”

Free Agency Preview – Aron Baynes

By Matt Esposito In 28 games as a starter for the Phoenix Suns this season, Aron “All of Australia” Baynes averaged a line of 13.6/6.7/2.1 while hitting a career high 37.5 percent from deep. While filling in for a suspended Deandre Ayton, Baynes showed that he can be a nightly starter for the right team.Continue reading “Free Agency Preview – Aron Baynes”

Free Agency Preview – Harry Giles

By Matt Esposito I’m rooting for Harry Giles to have a successful career more than I’ve ever rooted for anything in my life. (Well, maybe I’m rooting harder for Homelander to die, but we can assume everyone else is too.) A former top high-school recruit who has been plagued by injuries, Giles once more findsContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Harry Giles”

Free Agency Preview – Davis Bertans

Featured Image By Stephen Gosling/NBAE via Getty Images By Andrew Lawlor “Spacing, Spacing, Spacing.” If NBA coaches talked like real estate agents, that is what they would be saying. Nowadays, offense revolves around how much spacing you can create. It opens up driving lanes, prevents double teams, and creates open shots for everyone. Everyone needsContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Davis Bertans”

Free Agency Preview – Josh Jackson

By Matt Esposito Here’s the scenario: The Memphis Grizzlies’ front office is prime Pedro Martinez. They’ve struck out their last four batters—guys named Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Brandon Clarke and De’Anthony Melton. Up comes batter number five: Josh Jackson. The Grizzlies strike him out on a 3–2 count using a nasty slider, but theContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Josh Jackson”

Free Agency Preview – Tristan Thompson

By Matt Esposito Despite rumors of Tristan Thompson being a buyout candidate during the 2019–20 season, the Cleveland Cavaliers opted to hold onto their veteran big man through the end of the season. Will they retain his services for much longer, though? With the last year of his $18.5 million contract set to expire andContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Tristan Thompson”

Free Agency Preview – Kris Dunn

By Andrew Lawlor NBA teams looking for defense in the backcourt should be looking at Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn as a free agent. Although his offense has not progressed very much, the fifth-overall pick from 2016 has terrorized opposing ball-handlers throughout his time in the league. Unfortunately, he is a poor shooter who givesContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Kris Dunn”

Free Agency Preview – Chris Chiozza

By Matt Esposito If you want your team to sign a hardnosed, alwaysmaketherightplay backup point guard, look no further than the Brooklyn Net’s bench. Adjectives for Chris Chiozza are dominated by “uns.” Undrafted. Undersized. Underrated. But ball-handlers who perpetually think one play ahead while playing bulldogian defense rarely escape my gaze. It was only rightContinue reading “Free Agency Preview – Chris Chiozza”

Free Agent Profile – Serge Ibaka

Chances are you’ve heard that the 2020 NBA free agency pool is one of the weakest in recent memory. This is no misnomer. The lone superstar of this year’s class, Anthony Davis, is almost certainly going to re-up with the Los Angeles Lakers, a team constructed to contend for the foreseeable future. Sorry to burstContinue reading “Free Agent Profile – Serge Ibaka”
