Hoops Rumors Originals

Here’s a look back at the original posts published by the Hoops Rumors writing team within the last week:

  • Many teams have included 2014 first-round draft picks in trades, but several of those picks won’t change hands, depending on the 2013/14 standings. I examined which of those traded picks we’ll be keeping an eye on throughout the season.
  • Eight players taken in the 2012 first round have been traded in the past 14 months, and Chuck Myron examines the declining value of many of those players.
  • With the new CBA somewhat limiting players’ abilities to sign huge long-term deals, there are only five NBA players currently on $100MM contracts, as Chuck outlines.
  • Chuck also broke down each NBA team’s largest overall salary commitment, and listed the highest-paid rookies not on first-round scale contracts.
  • A team with cap space, like the Sixers, has far more flexibility than a taxpaying team like the Heat when it comes to minimum salary contracts, as I detailed.
  • There are only a dozen players on iron-clad deals for four seasons or more. Chuck lists them and explains why there are so few.
  • Expect a busy October for NBA transactions logs, since close to 100 more players will be released before opening night. I explored that subject in greater depth right here.
  • There are a number of players who started many of their teams’ games last season and are without an NBA home this season, writes Chuck.
  • No player with D-League experience signed more than a mid-level deal with an NBA team this summer, as Chuck observes.
  • I looked ahead to some upcoming October deadlines, explaining what decisions NBA teams will need to make before the end of the month.
  • Votes were nearly evenly split on whether or not the Lakers will be a playoff team in 2013/14, but Hoops Rumors readers were much more optimistic about the Cavaliers‘ chances.
  • This week’s other polls asked which team will win the Western Conference and which guaranteed contract the Suns would waive to reach the regular-season roster limit.
  • If you just want to receive updates on your favorite NBA team, you can easily do so via Twitter, Facebook, or RSS.
