Raptors sign Delon Wright to rookie scale contract

Unlike a lot of what's been happening in free agency, this was expected. After losing out on Wesley Matthews (not the worst thing to happen) and LaMarcus Aldridge (a bummer, but expected), it was nice to hear the Raptors have signed someone. (Besides DeMarre Carroll, to which I say: yahoo!) Toronto announced today that they've signed Delon Wright, he of the number 20 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, to a rookie scale contract. This means he's under contract through the 2016-17 season, with two team options afterwards. From the press release: Wright, 6-foot-5, 190 pounds, was named the 2015...

Splitter bids San Antonio farewell

As you can tell from Friday's message on Instagram, the end of his five-year career in San Antonio hit home.

With Aldridge still mulling his decision, Phoenix Suns pose as many questions as answers

The Phoenix Suns still wait to the hear whether they have won the LaMarcus Aldridge sweepstakes, but at least appear to be in the final grouping of finalists for his services. To sum up Aldridge race: Spurs, Suns are leaders. Portland trying for a Hail Mary. Mavs trying...Lakers flailing. Knicks in the green room — Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 3, 2015 Word is that LaMarcus needs a little more time and is genuinely torn by the choices in front of him. — Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 3, 2015 So it's down to the Spurs and Suns, surely sparking some dormant...

Free Agency: Day 3 Open Thread

As of 3 a.m.STTOTTM, LaMarcus Aldridge does NOT have any meetings scheduled for Friday. It's been a whirlwind of a free-agency over the first two days and Spurs fans aren't exactly hardened to the process the way that most other fanbases are. It has been frustrating for Spurs fans to not have a decision from LMA yet, but it's a process and it's only been TWO days. Let's all take a deep breath, understand that this is the only time in Aldridge's career that he will be the center of attention with the power to sign where he wants. Also understand that LaMarcus is a private person and is also...

What Is LaMarcus Aldridge Motivated By, Anyway?

LaMarcus Aldridge is about to make the biggest decision of his career. We know surprisingly little about what's on his mind. We're only a couple days into the 2015 NBA free agency season, and it's already been nothing short of epic. There are monster sums of money ($145 million for Anthony Davis!), surprising deals (Paul Pierce to the Clippers - and for three years!), countless meetings, plenty of cap maneuverings and tons of player movement already. It's everything you could ask for.And yet, to me at least, this summer has still felt a little weird.It took me a while to figure out exactly...
