Jae Crowder used the Celtics’ record against the Wizards as a selling point in recruiting Al Horford

Now that the dust has settled from July’s free agency frenzy, more and more details are starting to emerge about how teams tried to pitch free agents on why they should join their team.

Even after Horford signed with Boston later that day, a trade involving Millsap still could make sense. Now, before Hawks fans lose their collective minds about shipping out the other half of their All-Star frontcourt tandem, let’s review the NBA...

Three reasons why the Wizards shouldn’t be in any rush to trade Marcin Gortat

It’s been the summer of the center for the Washington Wizards. After going all-out for Al Horford and falling short, the team moved quickly to sign Ian Mahinmi to a four-year, $64 million deal. And that was only after the team reportedly expressed interest in Joakim Noah and Zaza Pachulia.
