Further significant signings occurred on Friday with the biggest deal going down for DeAndre Jordan, who decided to bolt the Los Angeles Clippers to join the Dallas Mavericks for four years on an $80 million contract. Other significant and relevant deals included the following: Tobias Harris agreed to stay in Orlando for a four-year, $64 million contract; Rajon Rondo will join the Sacramento Kings on a one-year deal worth $9.5 million; Patrick Beverley agreed to re-sign with the Houston Rockets on a four-year, $25 million deal; Robin Lopez agreed to sign with the New York Knicks for four years on a $54 million contract and Derrick Williams will join him on a two-year, $10 million contract (you have to wonder what Phil Jackson is thinking on that particular signing).
Still undecided is LaMarcus Aldridge, who appears to be contemplating between the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns. See what Bill Simmons had to say on that particular situation on twitter, along with other reactions from players around the league about the latest signings:
