Shocking Off-Season

This Off-Season Has Been Filled With suprises and some Shocks....kind of like a soap opera , first of the draft shocked a few people, with a few good players dropping, and some Suprising Picks ( Detroit , minny ), So we thought that was crazy, then former teammates vince carter and richard jefferson were traded to orlando and san antonio respectively, making them both favourites, this was followed by Shaq Playing With The King, Which Gave Them there tough Nose Center......So We Thought okay woow this is pretty Interesting well ....that was the beginning Gordon and villaneuva were both signed by detroit, who were though to being a team to a lottery pick year, Things followed with Ron Artest , signing with the lakers......yes the lakers, Now They are again being crowned the favorites, and as ironic as it can get Trevor Ariza ( Laker) Agreed to Signed With The Rockets,Making It Like A Trade ??? Right ........now today Hedo Agreed to sign With The TrailBlazers.....So we thought, now he admitted toronto might be the better place for his family and him, and backed out of the deal......With probably More Drama to Come, We are honestly Thinking this is crazy, but imagine next year when Bigger names are free agents and probably having the best draft class since 2003, so Get ready 2 Embrace 2 off-seasons of total Bombshells....

btw What Shockers might happen next year ??

If you have to be restricted

then how come they are talking about doing a sign and trade with Ben Gordon and A.I, both who are Unrestricted Free Agents.

Sign&Trade

I think it's used for teams that can't always afford a player...because I remember Rashard Lewis was a sign and trade, but Orlando couldn't afford his contract since it was massive and since Seattle, now OKC had plenty of room with Allen gone as well they decided it wouldn't hurt and they could also get a nice looking player from Orlando. Well, not completely sure how it works still...maybe google it I guess.

Look it up.

It was a sign and trade, they recently talked about it somewhere, but I forgot and to prove it I just looked it up.

I forgot it was a sign and

I forgot it was a sign and trade too but I think a sign and came be done anytime when someone time is up just most teams will not always do it if they did not want that player to go and did not want to take back contracts to give that player a better deall Seatle was rebuilding and did not really care. I doubt Chicago would do a sign and trade with Detroit because they are upset they lost out of Ben Gordan unless they could get someone like Prince or Hamilton.
