We saw several signings on Day One of Free Agency. Let’s have a quick recap:
- Minnesota signs Nikola Pekovic – three years $13 million – good contract
- Minnesota signs Darko Milicic – four years $20 million – good contract, bad fit = bad signing
- Milwaukee signs Drew Gooden – five years $32 million – bad contract
- Memphis signs Rudy Gay – five years $82 million – bad contract
- Milwaukee signs John Salmons – five years $39 million – bad contract
- Phoenix signs Channing Frye – five years $30 million – bad contract
- Toronto signs Amir Johnson – five years $34 million – good contract
- Atlanta close to signing Joe Johnson – six years $120 million – bad contract
A total of seven signings and a eight which is nearby. Only two of those deals where good moves.
The other five/six will likely be regretted by their respective teams down the road.
