“Summer lovin’, had me a blast. Summer lovin’, happened so fast.”
-John Travolta as Danny Zuko in Grease
This is a BIG week for NBA trade rumor geeks such as myself. This summer’s list of free agents is a veritable who’s who of NBA all-stars.
With the free agency deadline clock ticking rapidly, I’m going to get right to it. We’ve all heard the rumors. We just don’t know what to believe.
That’s where you come in.
Your challenge should you choose to accept it is to predict where each of the top free agents will land. Good luck with that, right? The winner of this particular prize will receive a fabulous SportsChump prize pack to show off to their friends and neighbors.
Here are your free agents from which to choose. For the sake of simplicity, I’m only going with the most high-profile players. There are several others looking to land a huge payday but we’ll just keep it simple with the ten I have listed below.
In the comments section, tell me your projected landing spots for each of the following free agents. Should they stay or should they go now? As your tie-breaker, I need you to list, in millions of dollars, the most lucrative contract one of these ten will sign. The person who guesses the most landing spots correctly wins the prize and the right to call themselves NBA Free Agency Guru.
