NBA Free Agency Roundup: Corey Brewer Returns to Rockets

Some big moves have been made the last two days, with LaMarcus Aldridge picking the San Antonio SpursDeAndre Jordan spurning the Los Angeles Clippers for the Dallas Mavericks and Rajon Rondo going to the crazy Sacramento Kings. Those moves got all the headlines, but let’s take a look at some of the lesser deals from the last few days.

Corey Brewer3 years, $24 million with Rockets

Brewer dabbled with some other teams, including the Knicks, but winds up heading back to Houston. This is quite a bit of money for an inconsistent player, but he was an important part of the Rockets last year, so they felt the need to pay up.

Patrick Beverley4 years, $25 million with Rockets

Like Brewer, Beverley talked to some other teams before ultimately agreeing to come back to Houston. Beverley is a strong defender and solid shooter, and this deal makes sense for him.

Marco Belinelli3 years, $19 million with Kings

After striking out on some bigger name targets, the Kings snagged Belinelli at a nice price before getting Rondo. Sacramento needed shooting in the worst way, and the Italian will provide that.

C.J. Watson3 years, $15 million with Magic

The Magic were in the market for a backup point guard with Luke Ridnour gone, and they wind up with Watson at a fair price after he played well last season.

Derrick Williams2 years, $10 million with Knicks

Williams has been a major disappointment in the NBA, but the Knicks hope he’ll revitalize his career in the Big Apple. This is a rather odd signing given some of the other players available, but New York is clearly willing to take a chance on the talent.

Bismack Biyombo2 years, $6 million with Raptors

This is a really nice deal for the Raptors, who needed some rim protection.

Gary Neal1 year, $2.1 million with Wizards

Neal really struggled last season, but he’s had success on good teams before and playing with John Wall should help.

Richard Jefferson1 year, veteran’s minimum with Mavericks

Jefferson is nothing more than a decent depth piece at this point in his career.
