Basketball News Around the League (and Globe?)
Posted by r1zzo23 on July 9, 2008
There has been some serious free agents agreeing to deals, summer league games starting up and even a little college basketball news. Here’s the run down:
- Elton Brand going to accept a 5-year, $82 million deal from Philly.
- Corey Maggette will sign with the Golden State Warriors.
- Orlando Magic and Mickael Pietrus agree to terms.
- Philly makes very interesting deal to clear cap space.
- Michael Beasley dominates in first summer league game against Rose, Bulls. Not so hot second game.
- Brandon Jennings, University of Arizona ‘commit’, decides to opt out of scholarship and play in Europe.
A lot of this news will affect the Celtics in one way or another, so these moves are very significant to the defending champs.
