The NBA offseason is almost as intriguing as the regular season, as numerous high-profile players typically switch teams either through trade or free agency. Here are three of the biggest free-agent signings this past offseason.
1. LeBron James — After spending the past four seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that originally selected him first overall in the 2003 NBA Draft, James signed a four-year, $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in July. Los Angeles also added JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, and Michael Beasley.
2. DeMarcus Cousins — Attitude- and injury-related concerns plagued Cousins going into the offseason, but the four-time All-Star still earned a one-year, $5.3 million contract with the Golden State Warriors, where he’ll play alongside a handful of likely future Hall of Fame inductees.
3. DeAndre Jordan — Three years after nearly signing with the Dallas Mavericks, Jordan inked a one-year, $24 million contract with the Western Conference team in July.
