Free agent Greg Oden still plans to announce his decision Friday night.
There's been a lot of unsubstantiated rumors that Oden has already chosen to sign with the Heat. There's no evidence that's true. The Mavs and Spurs are also considered front-runners, while the Hawks, Pelicans and Kings haven't been ruled out. Oden's agent reiterated to FOX's Chris Tomasson that his client's announcement will come at some point Friday night.

Atlanta Hawks Waive DeShawn Stevenson

Image

By Chris Vivlamore

The Hawks waived DeShawn Stevenson Friday, according to a league source, in a move that clears the way for the team to announce the signing DeMarre Carroll. The forward agreed to terns with the nearly almost a month ago. The official signing of Carroll could come within the next day or two.

Carroll agreed to a two-year, $5 million contract on July 5th, the same day the team agreed to a deal with his Jazz teammate Paul Millsap. The delay in signing was for salary cap reasons as the Hawks rebuilt much of their roster this offseason. The Hawks were retaining Bird rights for several of their unrestricted free agents. However, Anthony Tolliver remains the only player that has not signed elsewhere or had his rights renounced.

Carroll, 6-foot-8, was selected in the first round (No. 27 overall) by the Grizzlies in the 2009 NBA draft out of Missouri. He averaged 6.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 66 games last season. In Carroll, the Hawks get a hard-working wing defender with size. The Hawks hope that work ethic will be contagious for the number of young players on the roster.

“He is a tough-nosed player,” Millsap told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last month. “Very competitive. Every second he’s on the court he is going to give his all, diving for loose balls. He wants to guard the best offensive player. Just his grit and how he approaches the game.”

In four NBA seasons, the 27-year-old Carroll has career averages of 4.2 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.3 minutes. He figures to have an expanded role with the Hawks.

In Carroll’s first season at Missouri, after transferring from Vanderbilt, he experienced itchy legs that he was convinced was due to an allergy. However it turned out that Carroll had a liver disease that could one day require a transplant. He required medication but the issue has not slowed his on-court tenacity.

He hasn't played in what 2-3 years and still isn't in shape.

Al Harrington - F/C - Magic

Al Harrington has officially cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent.
No team would come near Harrington's remaining two-year, $15 million contract (half of which will be paid by the Magic), but he may find a home on a veteran's minimum contract. "I’m only 33," Harrington recently told reporters. "When you guys get a chance to see me, you're going to be surprised. I've been putting in the work."

Harrington and Brewer to round out the roster would be nice...

Pau/Kaman/Sacre
Hill/Harrington/Kelly
Young/Johnson
Kobe/Meeks/Brewer
Nash/Blake/Farmar

still think we need more of a real small forward, but I guess this year is a wash and it's MDA's style anyway..

My belief here is the Suns waive and stretch Beasley. So he is gone but gets his 9 mill at 1.8 per year over the next 5 years

Do we still want Beas? I would hope if he clears waivers we atleast make an offer. I still like him as instant offense off the bench at both F spots.

yes 100%.

Since we're not going to stop anybody on D, we might as well have as much offensive fire power as possible. He can play either forward position, stretch the floor, attack the basket, and get his own shot. He's be a really good fit next to all our bigs: Pau, Hill, Kaman.

With Kobe and Nash in charge, Beasley would grow up quick.

No on Beasley. Our forward rotation is suddenly crowded and we need high character guys after last season's fiasco.

And we all know how low Beasley's character is for having a couple of joints in his car during the summer ...

If Beasley somehow becomes available for the minimum, you take him without thinking about it.

If the Suns are not able to get out of the contract because of this case or Scottsdale police’s investigation into an allegation of sexual assault, the Suns could cut ties with Beasley with a “stretch provision” allowed under the current CBA for a player signed after July 1, 2011. Beasley is guaranteed $6 million in salary for the coming season, and half of his $6 million salary for 2014-15 is guaranteed. By waiving him under the stretch provision this summer, the Suns could take that $9 million of guaranteed salary and pay it over five years and choose whether it counted against the salary cap over two years or five years. If they waited to waive him until after Sept. 1, they would pay him $6 million and stretch the remaining guaranteed $3 million over three years for a lesser cap hit in future years. Arizona Republic


I'd hope the FO would be willing to look past a small police issue and sign him for vet min...I'm sure he'd be open to signing here and either starting at PF or backup PF. Open to either him or Odom. Both have faults and problems but are good in their own way for our team and cheap.

If the Lakers can take a chance on Isiah Rider, Matt Barnes, and Metta World Peace, I don't see how they can't take a chance on Beasley if the price is right.

Yes to Beasley if he becomes available; he's a low-risk high reward. Sign him for a year for the minimum and if he doesn't work out, dump him. We were very close to having him a couple of years ago at the trade deadline. So, I know from a personnel standpoint, Mitch likes him; we'll just have to see what Phoenix does...as far as what he brings or doesn't, I would take a chance.

George, Sanders, Wall are all going re-up. Out of that draft, Cousins is the guy that may become available.

Young stars, or just young players in general, will never turn down their first big contract to land on a championship team/desirable situation.

That first big contract is all about $$$. In a maybe they go the Bron/Wade/Bosh route and re-sign on a shorter deal with an opt out clause but they are still going to resign.

Losing Dwight was a much bigger blow than Laker fans acknowledge.

Anyhow, Beasley/Odom/Harrington. We need one of them and IMO Ronnie Brewer.

That's really disappointing.. I was hoping he'd hit restricted free agency & we could load up 1 year of his contract to prevent the Bucks from matching.

Excited with the potential of adding Beasley.. Yes he's a bit of a knucklehead but with Kobe/Nash as mentors I think he'll turn out just fine.. We need him for exactly what he was when we played him last season, instant offense off the bench.. They would bring Beasley in & make runs on us every time we played it seemed like. We just couldn't stop him from getting to the rim. Hopefully we're the ones presenting that problem :man1:

Free agent Anthony Tolliver told me Lakers have entered mix as possible team for him & he visited Charlotte Monday. Tolliver said the Lakers recently called his agent, Larry Fox, to express interest. He said talks are still preliminary but he would have definite interest if the Lakers turn out to be a serious option. “Obviously, to have a chance to play for a franchise like that, you’d have to think long and hard about that,’’ the forward told FOX Sports Florida.

So much 4 loyalty: Just over 2 weeks ago and on brink of big pay day, Larry Sanders dumps Andy Miller for Dan Fegan.

Guess he's unsatisfied with how negotiations are being handled, trying to get more coin?
