Roughly $3 billion in contracts were handed out in just the first day of NBA free agency. The unparalleled spending spree has the heads of Fastbreak Breakfast spinning. On a brand new episode, we look at how the landscape of the league has changed and poke fun at those contract we deem, um, unwise.
- The Nets were universally lauded as the big winners of free agency by landing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Are the risks of these signings being understated?
- Even if you want to take the most optimistic angle on the Knicks’ free agency moves, why didn’t they at least get involved in the bad contract acquisition business?
- Which team has taken the lead on the Shakiest Front Office rankings?
- The Blazers have been very active, retaining Rodney Hood and trading for Hassan Whiteside and Kent Bazemore. But did they get any better?
- Does trading Josh Richardson for Jimmy Butler make sense for the Heat? What has changed between now and eight months ago when Miami concluded Butler wasn’t worth giving up Richardson to the Timberwolves?
- How will the Sixers handle the rotations of Al Horford and Joel Embiid? Will they be able to generate enough offense to win the East?
- Are we in the endgame of the Warriors dynasty?
