Tweet of the Night: Patrick Beverley confident about next season with the Houston Rockets

Patrick Beverley

With LeBron James finally making the decision to return home to Cleveland on Friday, it’s safe to say that the real free agency period of 2014 has truly begun. There was always going to be a trickle-down effect from whatever decision James came to, and his former teammate Chris Bosh proved to be the player in line to make the next move. The rumor – and a strong one at that – was that Bosh would strongly consider leaving the Miami Heat to

Just a tad over four years ago, LeBron James made his breathtaking decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat live on ESPN – a move that would be scrutinized for years to come. At least back then, though, everyone knew when the announcement would be made because there was a set time, date and place for it. This year, all we know is that James is supposed to post the decision to return to Cleveland on his website lebronjames.com.

There have been plenty of speculation around the league about a number of important free agents in the past couple of weeks – most notably, of course,  LeBron James.

While the big guns take the necessary time to mull their options, other NBA players around the league are enjoying their time off

After missing the entire 2012-2013 season due to an enlarged heart – a career-threatening condition –  Channing Frye came back this past season seemingly without skipping a beat. The floor-spacing big man averaged 11.1 points – including two 3-pointers per game on 37 percent shooting – and 5.1 rebounds to show that his game was still very much intact. Despite failing to make the playoffs in the ultra-competitive western conference, Frye was an instrumental piece in helping the Phoenix Suns to an impressive

Tweet of the Night: LeBron James ready to explore market?

All along, the belief was that LeBron James would end up re-signing with the Miami Heat, regardless of whether he opted in or out of his current contract. If he opted in, things would have stayed simple for this summer. Of course, that didn’t happen. Still, the supposed plan was this: he would sign a new deal with the Heat and willingly take a pay cut, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would follow suit, and their unselfishness would ultimately help bring in more

Could Smith play the small forward position? Wouldn’t there be serious floor-spacing issues? Would any of the primary bigs be receptive about coming off the bench? These were some of the questions asked prior to the start of last season, and as the year
