Hoops Links: Jennings, Spurs, Wizards, Jazz

On this date in 1976, the Philadelphia 76ers made the best purchase since Peter Minuit bought the island of Manhattan for $24.  The New Jersey Nets were set to join the NBA as a part of the ABA merger and had promised star Julius Erving a pay raise as they made the transition.  However, the Knicks demanded $4.8MM in territorial fees, meaning that owner Roy Boe could no longer afford the pay bump for his star player.  The Sixers seized the opportunity and when they offered the Nets $3MM for Dr. J's contract, they had no choice but to accept.

Great deals like that are hard to come by, but here at Hoops Links, we have a pretty good offer of our own for quality basketball bloggers.  If you have a great piece that you feel is worthy of inclusion, then you can email it to me at HoopsLinks@gmail.com and be a part of next week's feature.  Here's this week's look around the blogosphere..
