Chris PaulYou never know what to expect when dealing with the NBA offseason on a day-to-day basis. Some days, the biggest news turns out to be Tyreke Evans crossing up the mayor of Seattle in a Pro-Am game. Then there are days like today, where there are an endless number of eye-catching stories around the league.

Here is something in particular that will make you say “whoa, really??”: Chris Paul, at one point during free agency, was going to leave Los Angeles to team up with James Harden and Dwight Howard in Houston. Now that’s a scary thought for the rest of the league. As we know, though, Paul will remain with the Clippers, making this story something that would have been much more juicy had it been leaked before things settled down with the addition of Doc Rivers.

This one has been expected for a while, but John Wall has officially come to terms with the Washington Wizards on a maximum contract worth approximately $80 million over five years. The question is, did anyone else think that Wall deserved a contract that only the best point guards in the league have received? Shlomo Sprung explains why that’s not the case

SH Blog: Pistons Land Brandon Jennings

bjenningsAs July turns to August and the few remaining free agents scuttle to find homes for the 2013-’14 season, the Detroit Pistons have capitalized again.

Joe Dumars struck a favorable deal with one of the NBA’s top free-agents earlier this month, Josh Smith, when they signed the All-Star forward to a four-year, $54 million deal. While still a considerable contract in terms of dollars, they were able to land Smith for less than a max-deal when Smith had made it clear that he was entering free agency seeking just that.
