Free agency moves continue to happen across the NBA as teams look to build their rosters for the coming year. These are some of the latest moves across the league involving some of the top players in the league.
Brandon Jennings Heads To Detroit
Announced on Tuesday former Milwaukee Bucks guard, Brandon Jennings, will move to Detroit via a sign-and-trade deal that will give the Bucks Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton and Viacheslav Kravtsov. The deal that Jennings will receive is said to be worth $25 million dollars over the next three years. He will be joining Chauncey Billups, Josh Smith and Luigi Datome on the Pistons new look roster.
Jennings had a hard time with free agency earlier in the summer due to contract issues with the Bucks. He nearly resigned a one-year deal with the Bucks before this opportunity came to fruition. Jennings is coming off of a year where he scored 17.5 points, 6.5 assists and 3.1 rebounds while improving his three-point shooting efficiency.
Memphis Grizzlies land Mike Miller
Mike Miller has moved from being a part of the two-time champions in Miami to joining a roster that made strong moves this past season in the Memphis Grizzlies. The move was announced on Tuesday but the exact terms of the deal were not released by the team. This is his second stint with the team as he was there for six seasons in 2003 until 2008.
Miller played a big part in the Heat winning their last two titles with his ability to hit three pointers off of the bench in the post season. Even though he only averaged 4.8 points during the regular season what made him so valuable is that he is a career 40 percent or higher three point shooter which includes a staggering 44.4 percent during the 2013 playoffs.
The NBA schedule is set to be announced in the coming weeks and free agency moves such as these give fans something to cheer for with their hometown teams.
