NBA Free Agency Roundup: Ed Davis Agrees to Join Trail Blazers

The second day of free agency wasn’t quite as hectic as Day 1, although there were some significant contracts handed out and the LaMarcus Aldridge situation got silly. There were also a few interesting smaller contracts handed out. Let’s take a look.

Ed Davis3 years, $20 million with Trail Blazers

Davis was a steal for the Lakers last season, but while they continue to go after the big fish, he inked a nice little deal in Portland. The Trail Blazers now have quite the interesting core of big men in Davis, Meyers Leonard, Mason Plumlee and Noah Vonleh, further signaling the departure of LaMarcus Aldridge.

Aron Baynes3 years, $20 million with Pistons

This one is a bit of a head-scratcher, although Baynes actually was solid in a backup role for the Spurs last season. The money is still a bit much, but the Pistons had money to spend and were willing to overpay a bit after missing on some of their top targets.

Lavoy Allen3 years, $12 million with Pacers

Allen has been a solid backup big man, so this deal makers perfect sense. Not much more to be said.

Shane Larkin2 years, $3 million with Nets

Larkin has been a disappointment in his short NBA career, but he’s still just 22 years old and the Nets need some young talent. At this price, it’s worth a shot.

Thomas Robinson2 years, veteran minimum with Nets

Like Larkin, the Nets will take a chance on another young, athletic player in Robinson. The 24-year-old wanted to sign with the Nets last season, but Philadelphia grabbed him off waivers after he agreed to a 10-day deal in Brooklyn.

Walter TavaresMulti-year deal with Hawks

The Hawks drafted the 7’3 big man in the second round in 2014, and now they’ve agreed to terms. He’ll be a nice depth piece in the future.

James AndersonMulti-year deal with Kings

Anderson played well overseas last season after bouncing around a bit in the NBA. The hope is he can provide some shooting off the bench, but he’s just a 33 percent three-point shooter for his career.
