It's been another busy day of NBA free agency, and no team has been busier than the Nets, who've either signed, re-signed, acquired or traded 13 players today, according to the count of New York Times reporter Howard Beck (Twitter link). Many of those moves came as the team finalized earlier deals, like the swap for Joe Johnson, but some of the news was fresh, like the four-year extension for Brook Lopez. It doesn't appear GM Billy King and company are finished, either, as they're reportedly discussing a sign-and-trade deal for Antawn Jamison. We have plenty more on the moves to come here:
- At the bottom of a piece on the Jamison deal, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports the Nets are aggressively shopping MarShon Brooks.
- Heat president Pat Riley left the door open for free agent Ronny Turiaf to return to the team, saying, "I wouldn't rule it out," according to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida (Sulia link).
- The Blazers' primary goal in trades is to find a center, says Jason Quick of The Oregonian (Twitter link). That news came before Portland agreed to sign J.J. Hickson, however.
- The Warriors were close to a sign-and-trade for Lou Williams, and offered him more than the Hawks did, but Williams' desire to play close to where he grew up in Georgia won out, reports Tim Kawakami of the Bay Area News Group. Williams would essentially have replaced the less expensive Jarrett Jack in the Dorell Wright trade (All four Twitter links).
- The Grizzlies' pursuit of Jerryd Bayless, whom they signed Wednesday, began Tuesday after Ramon Sessions, Randy Foye, Aaron Brooks and Lou Williams all turned down offers from the team, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports (Twitter link).
