NBA fans have experienced the wildest offseason in NBA history in the past week. There are too many dramatic things happening before everyone's eyes: Leonard George's unpredictable teaming, the coup in Brooklyn, the loss of New York, the ups and downs of the Lakers recruiting free agents.
Aside from these eye-catching and ups and downs, ESPN expert Zach LOwe analyzed and listed three teams that failed in this crazy offseason.
1. The unsupported Adou—Charlotte Hornets
Jordan's signing in this offseason continued to consolidate his title of best player in history + worst boss in history.
The Hornets have not really paid for Walker and Lamb’s contract extensions Efforts were made to only give Walker, the best player in team history, a contract extension that was much lower than the maximum salary. At the same time, he let go of the 27-year-old outstanding wing Jemilanm and gave Rozier a backhand of 3 years and 58 million. Big contract.
You should know that Lamb’s contract with the Pacers is only 3 31.5 million a year. This series of suffocating operations can not help but recall the Hornets’ past bad operations: high-paying signing Batum, terrible draft vision. The Hornets really can’t afford to help.
Second, helpless tax avoidance—Milwaukee Bucks
Leaving Lopez, the big contract destined to be a premium, leaving Middleton, and losing the outstanding Malcolm Brogdon makes it even worse for the Bucks this offseason.p>
Brogdon is one of the best performers in this year’s Eastern Conference Finals and lost With Bledsoe alone, whether he can re-enter the Eastern Conference Finals next year is a question. After all, the Nets and 76ers have begun to show their competitiveness.
Even though he won three draft picks in the Brogdon trade. But as a contender for the championship, the Bucks can keep Brogdon and pay the luxury tax. This is what the contender for the championship should do. If you do not grasp the window to win the championship in the past two years, can you leave that Greek monster in the future?
3. It is difficult for a clever woman to cook without rice-HughesDayton Rockets
Compared to the Lakers who were dragged by Leonard, there is no space available for the Rockets. Morey had many wild ideas, such as signing first and then changing Butler, and getting Westbrook in the trade.
These operations are all helpless actions behind Paul’s contract, except for the renewal of House. The Rockets did nothing throughout the offseason.In the era of line supremacy, the gap between the Rockets' backcourt and the forward line is really horrible.
There are 9 special trading cases in hand. The mini-middle class has been used to renew House, which means The Rockets can only rely on the basic salary to attract free agents to join, which is why the Rockets are looking forward to the Grizzlies cutting Iguodala, a boost for their weak striker.
