The free agent signing period is underway, and a number of big names have already come off the board by agreeing to new deals. If history is any guideline, some of these deals will be considered bargains, while other will weigh down teams’ salary cap figures like an albatross for years to come. The big trend thus far this offseason is for players to go for deals that include player options that will allow them to hit the market again just as the salary cap is predicted to explode. This is a sound financial strategy…provided one doesn’t suffer a major injury early in the contract. It will take some time before all of these new agreements can be fully judged. But what fun is waiting?
It’s with that sentiment that I present to you the question of the day: Which free agent signing thus far can be considered the best deal for the team?
Do you think the Knicks got the best deal by inking Arron Afflalo to a short-term pact? How about the Warriors locking up Draymond Green for a slightly less than max deal? A different arrangement altogether? Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on which signing you believe is the best, both in terms of talent locked down, as well as how much it cost the franchise to do so. We look forward to what you have to say.
