Free Agency: Days 3 & 4

The Sun rises and sets in Phoenix.

Phoenix was the epicenter of the NBA free agency world for the past 24 hours.  Steve Nash is a Laker.  Thoughts?  LA was able to sign and trade for the two time MVP for a bucket of draft pics.  Nash agreed to a 3 year $24 million dollar deal.  Wasting zero time, in his place the Suns signed Goran Dragic to $34 million over 4 years.  Dragic is no Nash, but has shown flashes of brilliance in his past few seasons.  Phoenix also stayed busy yesterday signing Michael Beasley to a 3 year $18 million dollar deal.  Beasley should be able to step in and help a Phoenix team put more points on the board.  However, they weren't finished with just Dragic and Beasley, they have also offered Eric Gordon a max contract of 5 years and $58 million which New Orleans is planning to match.  But for a team destined to lose the face of their franchise, they wasted no time finding replacements to field a competitive team next season.

Out on the east coast Jason Terry has agreed to a three year deal with the Celtics at the full mid-level expception of 5 million per year.  Terry joins a talented but aging Celtics team who still hope to re-sign Jesus Shuttlesworth, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass.
The Rockets have reportedly offered Jeremy Lin $31 million over for years.
