Signings

Rasual Butler, CHI, UFA: The Toronto Raptors have made another low-key move by bringing in Rasual Butler.  Rasual is a personal favorite of mine for hitting a game-winning three-pointer in the most epic game of NBA Live 2007 ever played.  You reading this, Nick? 

Rumors

Rip Hamilton, DET, UFA: Hamilton has been bought out by the Pistons and is now a primary target of the Chicago Bulls.  I think the Bulls should first try to land someone who is more proficient in creating his own shot.

Dwight Howard, ORL: The news on Howard is that there is no news.  He won’t commit to leaving or staying in Orlando, and may simply not know what he wants to do yet.  Last night his agent was given permission to talk to three teams about a possible trade.

Nene, DEN, UFA: The Nets have offered Nene a four-year deal in the neighborhood of $65 million.  As if $16 million a year wasn’t enough, the Nets have reportedly raised their offer to $70 million, meaning he’d make over $17 million per season.  With no competitor reported to be offering even $65 million, I’m not sure why they upped their offer.  Nene is set to become one of the most overpaid players… probably in the history of the game.  The report that the offer has been raised to $70 million is now being disputed by Netsdaily.com, who says it remains at about $65 million over four years.

David West, NOH, UFA: The talk of a sign and trade that would land West in Boston has stopped for the moment, but it’s expected to resume today.  Jermaine O’Neal wasn’t happy about being sent to the Hornets… not sure if that has anything to do with the hold up or not.
