NBA Betting – Free Agent Bonanza Almost More Exciting Than Finals

Amare StoudemireWorld Cup betting players are gearing up for the big tournament, the NBA Finals are in full swing, and yet, everyone is still worrying about the free-agent sweepstakes that is due to kick off on July 1, which will spark one of the biggest market rushes in NBA history. Here is the latest news pertaining to the sweepstakes.

Avery Johnson

Johnson was successful in four seasons in Dallas, taking them to the Finals in 2006, where they lost in six games to Miami, and he won Coach of the Year in 2007. He’s been off since 2008, taking a couple of television opportunities, but spoke openly of his desire to coach again. The Nets signed Johnson on Wednesday, and this creates an interesting dynamic if the Nets want to pursue one of the big free agents: Johnson and Nets guard Devin Harris didn’t really get along in Dallas, and it was Johnson who facilitated Harris’ move to New Jersey. Would a free agent want to sign onto conditions like that?

Tom Izzo

A few days ago, we would have said Izzo’s chances of leaving Michigan State would be as good as the US World Cup betting odds against England, but now, they seem to be better than that. There are reports that Izzo is leaning towards taking the job in Cleveland, which is definitely a move to keep LeBron James, but we’re still betting on Izzo to stay in East Lansing, where he is a god in the community, much like Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, who was being courted by the Nets (and probably Cleveland, on the down low).

Amare Stoudemire

In news that NBA betting players could have guessed, Stoudemire says that he’ll be opting out of his contract with Phoenix if the Suns don’t offer him a max contract. The Suns can offer him an extra year and more money than any other team, but the question is, should they? Stoudemire’s success is due in large part to Steve Nash, who can’t be playing any more than another two years. Also, Stoudemire’s attention to defense is well known (he doesn’t pay much to it). He’s also had a few injuries in his career. It may be time for this marriage to end.

David Geffen

That’s right, the entertainment mogul is getting into the mix. Geffen wants to buy the Los Angeles Clippers from Donald Sterling, who has owned the team since 1981. Since then, there’s been a lot of heartache for Clippers fans, and many think that free agents would be more willing to sign there if Sterling wasn’t the majority owner. Come on, it’s Los Angeles: there’s no way the Clippers shouldn’t be a destination. Geffen is friends with James, and he’s thinking he could persuade him to come to Los Angeles and try and put the Clippers on the level of Kobe Bryant in the Lakers. Betting players should watch this development very closely.
