Yeah, Yeah, right.
What's everybody? Welcome back to my channel.
My name is Luke.
Before I start this video, I appreciate you guys Grandfather on SportsCastr and on Twitter, both at Luke, 68 13.
I really appreciate the follow, and right now I'm going to be grading, eh? NBA off season signings.
I have four resigned, like four players.
And then about 15 players that have signed the new team.
So just being a sink, you know, the player, what team? They want to, uh, their contract.
And then what? Great. I give them.
You know, A like the A through F system is the grading system I used for this.
So first off, I'm starting with point guard Fred Van Fleet, who resigned the Toronto Raptors on a four year, $85 million deal.
And I think this is a great contract.
After coming off a great season and the season before, you know, when he won the championship 17.
5 points per game, 6.
You know, I can't get much better from a backup point guard.
I think this was a great signing.
Overall, I'm going to give it.
I'm gonna give it just a plain, simple A.
It's a great re side, and I think it makes it even better just because, like, I knew a team out there like the next or something definitely could have gave him more money.
So the fact that they didn't give it, they didn't over pay him.
Um, also, $85 million is a lot, but they didn't like over pay him that much, and they still brought him back for four more years.
And even though his own, he's on and he's right now.
He's only how old is firebrand fleet? Things like 27? Not really sure how old he is doesn't tell me right in this website.
Minorities, right? All right.
But I'm gonna give that signing an A.
So now moving on to another resign is Joe Harris resigning to the Brooklyn Nets on a four year, $75 million deal, and he is one of the best three points years in the league.
Everyone knows that he has one of the best average, like three point shooting averages 42% last year.
That's why he shot from three.
He averaged about 15 points per game.
So he is a really good score.
And as we all know, the Brooklyn Nets, You could be a great team this year.
Kevin Durant coming back off the injury because, you know, hopefully he is the same player as he was before, which I'm sure he will be.
Um, it is a good signing, but I gave it a B.
Maybe just because I think they gave him a little bit too much money like 75 million for four years is about like I think that's about like 18, 18 and, like 7 $18 million.
So I think they might have over paid him a little bit.
But, I mean, he still is a good player.
I just gave it a B.
So now moving on to the next resigning it is Goran Dragic re signing with the Miami here on a two year, 30 $37.
4 million deal, and it's gonna be my first A plus grade.
2 points per game.
Last year, one of his best careers was one of his best seasons in his whole n b A career, Um and like we? We all know what happened with the heat.
They want to that big files.
I think this is a great re sign that they had to try to have, you know, try to bring the team back to the NBA championship, but this time hopefully wanting it.
And now I'm going to make me want to my grade in my last re sign and then moving on to.
You know, players that sign two different teams is, uh, Davis Bergheim to resign.
The Washington was on a five year, $80 million deal, and he is coming.
Another player that just had his best career season.
Um, you know, playing in his first year.
So I think it was a great Recife for them on.
I gave it an A Maybe the money is good.
Five years is a great line for him.
And as we know, he's a great three point shooter.
He's been like three point contest.
I was pretty sure.
So I give the grading and a and now everybody going to our first player that signed to a different team.
And that is Gordon Hayward, who signed to the showing Hornets on a four year $120 million deal.
And this is my opinion, the, like, the least graded, um, signing that I have.
I gave it a C plus just because it's such a weird signing like the Hornets out of any player you get assigned for you to see the sign.
Gordon Hayward. I just don't like the signing.
Doesn't really fit like he.
Obviously, he does fit.
They're playing the small forward position.
I just don't like the signing like they like.
This side just doesn't make sense to me at all.
That's just all I can really say about it.
It seems like they want to play that.
They want to be like a younger team.
But they just like on getting younger that, like they have a good foundation right now, you know? Lemelle BALL, Bleak Monk, PJ Washington, Miles Bridges I mean, obviously, Gordon Hayward is like a good, you know, like veteran player who can like no mentor.
These fliers, I just don't think is a great signing at the moment.
I'm sure will be like maybe in a couple of years, once you know they are like, actually contending team.
Maybe once he's on his like third year like I was 14. Honest deal.
We're now moving on to the next player is Christian Would, who signed to the Houston Rockets on a two year on a three year sorry $41 million deal.
Another play coming off his best career season? Um, yeah, I'm like kind of his best cruise season.
Why? I was 13 points per game.
I gave this a my son.
You don't see Christian Woods, not the best player in the league.
That's why I'm not giving it like an A plus.
I just love the fit they finally have been.
Well, they, you know, finally don't have a big man like I'm not sure I say they didn't click.
Appellate wasn't great center.
Um, not great, son.
Just a good center for them.
But Christian would add some good size of them.
Six tens, you know, and trading what? Robert Covington, I think Christian, What isn't this as good as Robert Covington is? But I still think Christian was a good replacement for him, So I give the signing and a mind and a minus and then moving on to Atlanta Hawks signing the knee.
Leo Gallinari to a three year, $61.
And, honestly, Gallinari, another player coming off this one of his best career seasons.
I gave this signing Ah, be ah B plus just because you know it is a good signing.
You have the Hawks just gone.
Danilo Gallinari Just not a great fit because obviously he does play that power forward position when just kind of want is best.
This is a play, but he also can play small, small forward.
It just be weird where they do playing, because if they don't figure it out because they're not gonna wanna have this guy gallon, are you coming off the bench? And they're giving him this much money because you also you know, up front they got John Collins, who really can't play center.
So you know one.
Either Gallinari or cause almost like you have to be that starting power forward player because they also have Capella who should be that starting center onto the season.
But obviously, you know, they do just have option to move Gallanar back to small forward.
Where he hasn't been his best self is best.
When he plays the best at the power forward position, but it's still great signing.
Um, just hopefully that you can figure out a good like rotation for him.
See, you know what they want to do with him. John Collins.
You know, Clint Capela and all that down low, moving on to the next, signing Jeremiah Jeremy Grant to the Detroit Pistons.
Um, only having spells in you, he signed a three year, 60 months, $60 million deal to destruct distance the, um Then the Denver Nuggets had, you know, the option to match that, but they decided not Thio.
I think this is a good sign in coming off his best career season.
12 points per game.
Very good school.
You know, Almost he signed with. Okay.
Got traded from Okay.
See, um, last season, I give this signing a B minus just because it doesn't make the most sense, But like, he still is a good player.
The reason I'm saying it doesn't make the most sense because they already have Blake Griffin less.
You know, it means they don't wanna hold on for Blake Griffin for the longest time, you know, maybe just, like, want to see how they're doing at the trade deadline.
And you know, they trade Blake Griffin and they still have Jeremiah Grant.
You know there, which is not a bad idea or because I'm pretty sure Grant can't play set.
And I appreciate more just like a forward player.
Yeah, but I just I'm getting at the moment right now.
I'm getting assigning a B minus, and now I'm moving on to another a plus, signing Montrezl Harrell signing to the Los Angeles Lakers on a two year, $19 million deal.
Like I said, this is an A plus move, you know, coming off his best career seasons, winning six men of the year like no one really thought that the Lakers could get better, you know, and you win a championship.
How does your team get better? Because you know, expiring players on that team.
You know MOOCs will usually, like, go out and we need to get more money, but the Lakers somehow do it.
Sign mantra is heralds a great contract.
Two years, 19 mil and you know this just keeps the Lakers as a MBA as a title contending team snap may be onto the next lost it to another Los Angeles signing, this time on the other side of the Clippers.
Designing Serge Ibaka from the throne rappers on a two year, $19 million deal.
And I gave this signing an A minus, and this also goes into Montrose.
How it's crazy to think that Ibaka, who's not he's still great Saturn, but not on the same level of Harold getting paid the same out money that just shows, like how good the Lakers did.
But I'm pretty sure like that signing the Lakers did was like I forgot to call it.
It was I forget what they call it, But it wasn't like the actual Cabos, something that get I forget what it was, although, but Serge Ibaka signing, I'm giving it a mice and reuniting Baca Kawhi Leonard.
This is a great signing for them, you know, replacing Harold.
So you know they still jubak.
So I think it's a good sign.
Download for them and then now moving on to the next player, Drake Jae Crowder.
Sorry about that.
Signing to the Phoenix Suns on a three year, $30 million deal.
I think this is a great signing.
I'm giving this signing an A plus.
It doesn't get much better than this.
Just a need that just a position that they needed to feel because, you know, point guard, um, they have Chris Paul now.
Devin Booker, shooting guard Michael Bridges, mall forward power for J Crown now eight and at the center, which is a great sign.
Complete that starting five.
Um, and it was just overall great signing in my last.
All right, so I'm just gonna go through the signings, not really go too much into it.
Um, so another one Aaron Baynes through the Toronto Raptors on a two year, $14.
I'm giving this citing a B.
It's obviously a good signing for them because they've lost both Gasol Ngbaka.
So just a good player to replace and I'll see Aaron Baynes is one of the best like centers that could shoot the three ball.
Next is Tristan Thompson.
So another center going from Cleveland to Boston, a two year, $19 million deal and I give us a B minus.
Also replacing and it's cancer.
Justin Thompson is a good you know, um, like, download center.
So I think it is a good sign from them moving on to the next one.
Derrick favors back to Utah on a three year, $27 million deal.
I given an a minus, just a good backup siding for them.
I just on the Jazz.
Would he be the start? I'm not always sure the Jazz starting lineup looks like at the moment.
I don't know if you'd be the starter on that roster, but I just think it was a good signing next, Rajon Rondo to the Atlanta Hawks in a two year, $15 million deal.
I get this in the edge, Just a great signing overall.
You know, he's got that veteran experience for Trey Young.
The Hawks are now possibly definitely a playoff contending team.
Now, with another signing to Atlanta, Chris done to Atlanta on two year, $10 million.
Given the A minus, Popes were basically one of the worst defensive teams in the league.
Andre Young on the court so now, bringing Kristen, who is probably a top 10 like guard, defending guard player.
That makes sense.
I think it was a good signing, so now moving on to like the last three signs.
I have Dwight Howard to Philly on a one year, $2.
6 million deal deal.
You know the veteran minimum? I gave the signing a B plus.
I think it was really good for the six years to get it back up center and not none better than Dwight Howard.
Um, just a good sign.
And I'm excited to see Dwight have on your plate for the Sisters of Season now.
Marc Gasol signing to Los Angeles Lakers on a two year I think it was $5.
5.3 million dollars.
I get this signing A B.
Gasol is still obviously a great player just getting there in age.
So, you know, I think we are going to see your aggression from Marc Gasol.
And plus, the Lakers do have a crowd of front court now.
Kuzma most likely Davis.
Davis woke me sign that that would be crazy.
Davis doesn't sign, but I saw a thing that, like he might want to resign and wanting to deal so that, like they could pursue Yanis next offseason, which would be crazy, but like, we'll just have to wait and see, because I'm sure in the next coming days, or maybe like a week, we'll see Davis.
You know, signing that contract with the Lakers.
But I just gave this all be just because he is getting up there in age and to the last player, Derrick Jones Jr.
Who signed with Portland to a two year, $19 million deal.
I gave that a B minus.
Obviously, you know, a need that they have was kind of that small forward position as they lost.
Um, well, they didn't really like, have the best player there, I think Mellows no, Didn't Mel start? I don't forget, but I just think it would be my signing.
Not a bad sign yet.
