He's a very decent back up center. He basically put up numbers (6.2 ppg; 5.1 rpg) similar to Rasho's, but he only played about 19 minutes a game. And the offer sheet he signed was supposedly for 4 years at 4 million, so 1 million a year! Which is a bargain for the potential this kid has, as well as how young he is.

Quote:
"Milwaukee Bucks center Zaza Pachulia could be heading to the Atlanta Hawks, if the Bucks fail to match a multiyear contract offer from the Eastern Conference team. Sources confirmed Tuesday that the Hawks had offered Pachulia a four-year, $4 million deal. Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, after Pachulia signs the offer, the Bucks have seven days to either match the offer or let Pachulia, a restricted free agent, go to the Hawks. The 21-year-old Pachulia averaged 6.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game last season, his first with the Bucks." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
So I guess its not true that every average center is offered more then they are worth. Rasho is being over-paid.

That must be 4 million per year for 4 years, otherwise this is a bigger steal than Miami's trade.

Nope it really is 4 year; 4 million dollar offer. It really is a steal, if the Bucks don't match it.

At least its not 6-8 million per year for a back-up who puts up 6 and 5. Oh wait that would be the Spurs

But they did report it as a 4 million dollar deal at first not a 16 million one.

Quote:
"Milwaukee Bucks reserve center-forward Zaza Pachulia has signed an offer sheet with the Atlanta Hawks, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Pachulia was offered a four-year, $16 million deal by the Hawks, according to sources, which could make it difficult for the Bucks to match. The deal was not a four-year, $4 million deal, as reported Wednesday." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Portland waived Derek Anderson? I thought he signed like a 7 year deal?

Seems kinda odd?

where you been? Here's the reason:

Here are the official press releases:

Blazers release Van Exel
The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that the club has waived Guard Nick Van Exel, choosing not to retain him for the last non-guaranteed year of Van Exel’s contract.

“We appreciate Nick’s contribution to the team and the leadership he displayed while on our roster,” said Trail Blazers General Manager John Nash. “We wish him well in the future.”

Van Exel, a twelve-year NBA veteran, played in 53 games including 39 starts last season for the Trail Blazers. Van Exel averaged 10.7 points, three rebound, and 4.3 assists per game before experiencing pain in an arthritic left knee on March 4, 2005, which led him to the injured list March 12, 2005 for the remainder of the season.

“I appreciate the Trail Blazers being able to accommodate my desire to move on,” said Van Exel. “I would like to thank Portland’s great fans for all their support.”

The 34-year-old Van Exel was acquired by Portland in a trade with the Golden State Warriors that sent Forward Dale Davis and Guard Dan Dickau to Golden State July 20, 2004. Van Exel has played for five NBA teams in his professional career including the Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, and Portland Trail Blazers. In 821 career games Van Exel averaged 15 points, 6.9 assists, and three rebounds in 34.1 minutes per game.

Blazers designate Anderson as amnesty player
The Portland Trail Blazers announced today that the club has waived Guard Derek Anderson. Anderson will be designated as the team’s amnesty player under the luxury tax amnesty provision of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The provision allows a team to release a player and remove his contract amount from the team’s salary cap for purposes of calculating the luxury tax. The Trail Blazers will be responsible for the remaining two years of Anderson’s contract and he is free to sign with another team.

“We thank Derek for his contributions on and off the court while he was in Portland,” said Trail Blazers General Manager John Nash. “Given the direction of the team and Derek’s limited availability in recent years we felt this was the best solution for all parties. This move gives us additional cap flexibility and minutes for our younger players. We wish him well in the future.”

During the 2004-2005 season Anderson saw action in only eight of the team’s final 42 games due to various injuries, including a sinus ailment, dental problems and back spasms. An eight-year NBA veteran, he played in 47 games with 32 starts for the Trail Blazers last season and averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 26.4 minutes per game. In the 2003-2004 season Anderson appeared in 51 games, 45 in the starting line up. He averaged 13.6 points, 4.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.29 steals and 35.5 minutes. He had limited action that season due to a herniated disk.

“I enjoyed my time in Portland and thank the fans for all the support I received there for so many years,” said Derek Anderson. “I’m glad we could reach a resolution that meets everyone’s needs.”

The 31-year-old Anderson was acquired by Portland along with Steve Kerr and second-round draft pick from San Antonio in exchange for Steve Smith on July 25, 2001. In his four seasons with the Trail Blazers, the 6-5, 195-pound Anderson played in 244 games and averaged 12.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 30.2 minutes.

he still is very young and should be able to improve (especially on the offense). i think he could once be more than a decent back-up, he could develope into a decent starter. in some points he is compareable to nazr (strenght, off. rebs), but his potential might even be higher. i guess atlanta will soon be happy to have zaza for 16M/4yrs and not to have curry for something like 60M/5yrs.

Bucks allow Pachulia to join Atlanta

August 8, 2005
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. (AP) -- Zaza Pachulia joined the Atlanta Hawks on Monday after the Milwaukee Bucks declined to match a four-year, $16 million offer sheet.

The 21-year-old Pachulia, a 6-foot-11 center from Tbilisi, Georgia, was a restricted free agent. He averaged 6.2 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Bucks as a backup last season.

He spent his 2003-04 rookie season with Orlando, where he averaged 11 minutes, 3.3 points and 2.9 rebounds. He was drafted by the Magic in the second round in 2003.

After his rookie season, Pachulia was selected by Charlotte in the 2004 expansion draft and then was acquired by the Bucks for a 2004 second-round draft choice.

It's not a mortal sin... it's a moot point.

If Derek Anderson agreed to become a backup getting paid the league minimum, he would cease to be Derek Anderson and would become an entirely different person.

He's all about the benjamins. He'll join whichever team throws the MLE at him.

Basden signs with Bulls

August 9, 2005
CHICAGO (AP) -- Eddie Basden, a guard who was not drafted out of Charlotte, signed a two-year contract Tuesday with the Chicago Bulls.

The 6-foot-5 free agent led the Bulls in summer league play, averaging 14 points. As a senior at Charlotte, he averaged 15.2 points and eight rebounds.

General manager John Paxson also said Monday the Bulls will more than likely match an offer Chris Duhon received from the Toronto Raptors. The second-year guard is a restricted free agent.

Duhon, a second-round pick out of Duke a year ago, became a starter last season and helped the Bulls make the playoffs for the first time since 1998.

Timberwolves re-sign Madsen

August 9, 2005
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Timberwolves reserve Mark Madsen signed a five-year contract with the club Tuesday.

Minnesota agreed to terms with the free-agent forward in July but couldn't announce the signing officially until Aug. 1.

``Mark brings so much more to a team than just statistics,'' Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said. ``First and foremost, he brings energy, and a tremendous work ethic. Plus, he is a good teammate and a great guy to have in the locker room.''

Madsen, 6-foot-9 and 245 pounds, is recovering from surgery in March to repair a ruptured ligament in his shooting wrist.

Madsen spent his first three NBA seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers after a standout career at Stanford. He averaged 2.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 14.7 minutes last season, appearing in only 41 games. A broken thumb sidelined him about six weeks and then the ruptured ligament kept him out the rest of the season.

WASHINGTON (Ticker) - The Washington Wizards signed forward Andray Blatche, their only pick in the 2005 draft, on Tuesday.

Blatche averaged 27.5 points, 16.0 rebounds and 6.0 blocks for South Kent Prep in Connecticut.

Warriors sign teen Monta Ellis to multiyear deal

TIMES WIRE SERVICES
August 11, 2005

sports digest

The Warriors signed second-round draft choice Monta Ellis to a multiyear contract, executive vice president of basketball operations Chris Mullin announced Wednesday.

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 11 -- The Indiana Pacers announced Thursday they have signed free agent guard Sarunas Jasikevicius (yah-sa-KEV-ə-chiss) to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not revealed.
“We are very excited that Sarunas decided to sign with the Pacers,” said Larry Bird, President of Basketball Operations. “It means a lot to the franchise to have him as a member of our team. I think this is a good situation for him and it helps our team tremendously.”

“I am very happy to be here and very excited,” said Jasikevicius. “I am looking forward to this experience.”

Jasikevicius, a 6-4, 197-pound guard from Lithuania, has played the previous two seasons in Israel for Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv. He led the team to its second consecutive “Triple Crown,” winning the Premier League title, the Israeli Cup title and the championship of the Euroleague. The Premier League title was his fifth straight league title with three different teams in three different countries. In 93 games over five seasons in Euroleague competition, Jasikevicius has averaged 14.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game.

Jasikevicius played collegiate ball at the University of Maryland, averaging 7.6 ppg and 2.3 apg, making four consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament. He finished his career at Maryland ranking third in school history in 3-pt FG made (136) and attempted (363). In his only season at Solanco High School in Quarryville, Penn., he averaged 20.5 ppg.

You know I keep expecting Minnesota to sign that FA that makes you go, "Wow they really want to be contenders again" or make a trade that brings in some key players but instead they re-sign Mark Madsen and Nkosfsikjfsdkeisdfhls Tskeiskviliviviai

Clippers Sign James Singleton To Two-Year Deal

11th August, 2005 - 9:24 am
OC Register - The Clippers have signed forward James Singleton to a two-year contract that is partially guaranteed. There is a club option for a third year, said Singleton's agent, Buddy Baker.

Singleton, who turned 24 last month and is 6-foot-8, spent two years at Murray State, where he played center. He was on Seattle's 2004 summer-league team and has spent the past two years playing in Italy, where he was scouted by Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy.

Nets sign McInnis

August 11, 2005
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Jeff McInnis signed a two-year deal with the New Jersey Nets on Thursday to back up Jason Kidd.

``I still think I am a starter in this league,'' McInnis said by telephone from Charlotte, N.C. ``The short-term contract will give me an opportunity to be a starter in this league, whether with New Jersey or not.''

The former 30-year-old North Carolina star said he's looking forward to a fresh start after a tumultuous exit from Cleveland. He was benched by coach Paul Silas on March 20 for a game in Toronto, a day before Silas was fired and replaced by assistant coach Brendan Malone.

McInnis did not accompany the team to its final regular-season game, also in Toronto, because of an unspecified and unexplained ``viral syndrome.'' The day before, at a game in Boston, he remained in the locker room for part of third quarter and sat on the bench for the rest of the game with a towel wrapped around his head.

The Cavaliers finished the season with a 42-40 record and missed out on the final Eastern Conference playoff spot in a tiebreaker with the Nets.

``The Cleveland thing is in the past,'' McInnis said. ``I'm just happy go be a Net. I just want to move forward.''

McInnis has averaged 10.6 points and 4.6 assists in eight seasons with Denver, Washington, the Los Angeles Clippers, Portland and Cleveland. Last year with the Cavaliers he averaged 12.8 points and 5.1 assists.

Nets President Rod Thorn has said McInnis will back up Kidd at point guard and also play shooting guard, a prospect McInnis said was appealing.

``Playing behind Jason Kidd, or just to go against him every day in practice, you can learn,'' McInnis said. ``I'm really excited about it.''

McInnis qualifies as the Nets' major offseason acquisition after a deal for Portland forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim fell apart when Abdur-Rahim failed a physical. On Tuesday, New Jersey used the trade exception it had planned to use in that deal to acquire 76ers forward Marc Jackson instead.

The team also re-signed veteran forward Cliff Robinson, who played in 29 games for the Nets last season after being acquired from Golden State midway through the season.

76ers agree to terms with C Hunter

August 11, 2005
PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) - The Philadelphia 76ers found a replacement for Marc Jackson.

The 76ers announced Thursday they have agreed to terms with free agent center Steven Hunter, two days after trading Jackson to the New Jersey Nets.

Terms were not disclosed. Hunter is expected to sign with the Sixers on Friday.


Hunter was a key member of the Phoenix Suns' bench last season. In 76 games, the athletic 7-footer averaged 4.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.

"We felt that Steven was one of the top free-agent big men out there," Sixers president Billy King said. "He is an extremely important addition to our team."

Hunter, 23, provides a defensive presence to a frontcourt which already features five-time All-Star forward Chris Webber and improving center Samuel Dalembert.

"He is young, athletic and a natural shot-blocker," King said. "This move really strengthens our frontcourt."

The Sixers will be the fourth team for Hunter, a 2001 first-round pick of Orlando who has averaged 3.9 points 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 221 games.

Heat sign first-round pick F Simien

August 12, 2005
MIAMI (Ticker) - The Miami Heat signed forward Wayne Simien, their first-round pick in the June draft, on Friday.

The signing comes after Simien averaged 17.1 points and 7.0 rebounds for the Heat's Summer Pro League entry in Long Beach, California last month.

Financial terms were not disclosed. All first-round rookie contracts are two years with separate club options for the third and fourth years. Under terms of the recently ratified collective bargaing agreement, Simien will receive $1.5 million in the first two years.

The Heat selected Simien with the 29th overall pick as insurance if starting power forward Udonis Haslem signed an offer sheet that Miami would be unable to match. However, the Heat were able to re-sign Haslem to a five-year contract.

The 6-9, 255-pound Simien has the size to compete at power forward in the NBA. Last season, he led the Big 12 Conference in both scoring and rebounding with 19.4 points and 11.1 boards despite missing four games due to surgery on his left thumb.

Named the Big 12 Player of the Year, Simien was the only player in the league to average a double-double in those categories.

In the Summer Pro League, Simien ranked second on the Heat in points (120), rebounds (49) and blocked shots (5). His four 20-point efforts tied Earl Barron for the team lead.

The Heat on Friday also signed guard Gerald Fitch, who averaged 13.4 points while competing for the Washington Wizards' entry in the Reebok Vegas Summer League.

Terms were not disclosed.

USA Today - The Milwaukee Bucks re-signed guard Michael Redd on Saturday.

Redd signed a six-year, $90.1 million contract after agreeing to the deal last month.

"This was something that we felt was going to happen ever since the start of last season, when we knew Michael was going to be a free agent," Bucks general manager Larry Harris said in a statement. "Today's signing is definitely the culmination of everything we've done this offseason."

Redd, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Ohio State, averaged a career-high 23 points last season and averaged 17.7 points since Milwaukee drafted him in the second round in 2000.

His deal with the Bucks is the largest contract a second-round pick has ever received. He is the only free agent to sign a maximum contract this offseason.

Redd returned to the Bucks to play alongside No. 1 draft pick Andrew Bogut after spurning a multiyear offer made by the Cleveland Cavaliers .

Gadzuric's deal with Bucks officially signed

August 12, 2005
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks re-signed center Dan Gadzuric on Friday.

Gadzuric's agent said last month the contract was for six years and worth $36 million.

``Dan is an extremely active player who has improved every year he's been with us,'' Bucks general manager Larry Harris said in a statement. ``He plays with high energy and runs the floor extremely well.''

The 27-year-old Gadzuric is beginning his fourth NBA season after being selected by the Bucks in the second round of the 2002 draft. He averaged a career-high 7.3 points and 8.3 rebounds and played in all but one game last season.

Gadzuric posted 19 double-doubles, tops on the team and a career high.

``Dan gives us another young, athletic big man to help anchor our defense,'' Bucks coach Terry Stotts said. ``He's taken steps every year to get better, and I believe he and Andrew Bogut will complement each other very well.''

Chicago Sun-Times - As expected, the Bulls have decided to match the three-year, $9.07 million offer sheet guard Chris Duhon signed with the Toronto Raptors , but plan on waiting until the deadline late this afternoon before officially doing so, a team source said Sunday.

''You never know what might happen, so that's the reason for waiting until the end of the day,'' the source said. ''But unless something really unforeseen happens, [the offer sheet] will be matched.''

Grant added to the front line

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
Tuesday, August 16, 2005

News
The Suns signed forward Brian Grant to one-year contract with a player option for a second year on Monday, his agent told the Arizona Republic. "It's a great franchise, no doubt about it, with the best record last year, a great point guard and a need [for a big man]," his agent said. "We think it's a terrific fit."

Views
The Suns are continuing to add some much-needed bulk to their frontcourt in order to better prepare themselves for next season's playoffs. Grant's fantasy value in Phoenix will be minimal unless injuries allow him to see the court enough to accumulate double-digit rebounds on a regular basis.

Celts Sign Gomes To 3-Year Deal
17th August, 2005 - 2:16 am
Providence Journal - Former Providence College basketball star Ryan Gomes secured his immediate future with the Boston Celtics , reaching an agreement yesterday with the team that selected him in the second round (50th overall) of this year's NBA Draft.

The Friars' all-time leading scorer has signed a three-year deal worth close to $2 million, said Gomes' agent Andrew Woolf, calling it "the best contract so far to date [secured by a player picked] in the second round, and the best 50th-pick contract of recent date, definitely."

"The first year and a half is guaranteed," according to Woolf, who expected everything to be finalized either by the end of business yesterday or today. "And there are really good trigger dates in years two and three, which virtually make it a two-year guaranteed contract. It's a solid contract, and it gives Ryan a lot of security."

Although Gomes knew last month that the team was interested in signing him, actually seeing it in writing gave him a huge sense of relief.

"I felt like I was a part of the team when I went to summer league, but they say once it's in writing it's really official, so I'm happy I got that over and done with," Gomes said last night from his home in Waterbury, Conn. "Now I can just focus on working out and getting ready to produce for this team, so I can show them that they made the right decision."

Bucks sign guard Charlie Bell

August 18, 2005
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Guard Charlie Bell signed a multiyear contract with the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday after leading the Spanish league in scoring last season.

Bell, who went undrafted out of Michigan State, played for the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks in 2001-02.

The 6-foot-3 guard spent three seasons in Italy, leading all scorers in 2003-04 with 25.5-point average for Livorno. He was tops in Spain last season, averaging 27 points for Breogan.
