Hoops Rumors Features

Hoops Rumors passes along the latest news and rumors on NBA player movement 365 days a year, but those aren’t the only updates you’ll see on the site. On our right sidebar, you’ll find a number of additional features and featured posts. Here’s a rundown of a few of them:

  • We’re looking ahead to the October 31st rookie scale extension deadline with our Rookie Scale Extension Primer, and we examine some of the more noteworthy cases in depth with our Extension Candidate Series.
  • That same October 31st deadline applies to team options on rookie scale contracts, and we’ve categorized the likelihood that each option will be exercised.
  • Our Free Agent Tracker provides an array of sorting tools to help you sift through all of the training camp signings throughout the league as well as look back on more notable deals from the offseason.
  • There’s still one player among the top 10 in our Free Agent Power Rankings without a deal for the coming season, and other notables who remain unsigned are a part of our full list of 2014 free agents. We’ve profiled several of them with our Free Agent Stock Watch series.
  • We’re also keeping track of the 2015 free agents as the ability for LeBron JamesKevin LoveRajon RondoMarc Gasol and others to hit the market next year begins to affect the landscape of the league. Some teams are already looking ahead to the summer after that, when Kevin Durant is scheduled to hit free agency, so we’ve listed him and the other 2016 free agents.
  • Our agency database is a handy reference point for determining the representation for virtually every NBA player.
  • We’ll be keeping track of the size of each team’s roster throughout the season in our Roster Counts post, so you’ll know at a glance whether your team has the flexibility necessary to make a move.
  • See the assets that changed hands in every trade that’s become official this summer with our list of offseason trades.
  • Our register of outstanding traded player exceptions is updated whenever a trade exception is created, used or expires.
  • Several teams can pay no more than the minimum salary to any free agent signee for the coming season. Our updated list identifies these clubs.
  • See how far each team has come toward accomplishing the goals we outlined in our Offseason Outlook series, which provides a detailed look at where all 30 NBA teams stood going into the summer.
  • Eddie Scarito recapped and graded the draft from the perspective of every team. He broke it down into divisions (AtlanticCentralSoutheastSouthwestNorthwestPacific).
  • Eddie’s also looking back on notable trades from the past several years to see how they’ve panned out over time. His Trade Retrospective Series recently examined the deals that sent James Harden to the Rockets, LaMarcus Aldridge to the Blazers and Shaquille O’Neal to the Heat.
  • Using our 10-day contract tracker, you can find any 10-day contract signed this year or in any season since the 2006/07. You can sort by player, team, year and other variables.
  • We give you a turn in the spotlight when we showcase the best reader comments with our Hoops Rumors Featured Feedback posts.
  • On Wednesdays at 3:00pm CT, I answer reader questions in a live chat. You can check out transcripts of our past discussions here.
  • We’re tracking each team’s use of the amnesty clause. Our complete table shows which clubs have used the provision and which still have it available.
  • The Hoops Rumors glossary helps explain some of the more complex concepts in the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement. Recently, I added entries on summer contracts and Exhibit 9 contracts, the sorts of deals that teams are handing out to training camp invitees this month.
  • Zach Links rounds up the best of the blogosphere with Hoops Links on Sundays.
  • If you’re looking to catch up, our Week in Review posts compile the top news and rumors from the past seven days, while our Hoops Rumors Originals posts recap the site’s original content for the week. Both roundups are published every Sunday.
  • Be sure to check out the Featured Posts section on the right sidebar for more original pieces from the Hoops Rumors writing team. Recently, Zach went one-on-one with recent Bucks signee Elijah Millsap, and I examined the more frequent use of the stretch provision around the NBA and identified a leaguewide decline in lucrative one-year deals.
