Eye on Basketball Podcast: Offer rescinded, Dwight deciding
Zach Harper and Matt Moore discuss Andre Iguodala's contract issues, Dwight Howard's decision and break down free agency signings and rumors.
I'm joined by Matt Moore to discuss all of the latest craziness involving the free agency even though it's only been a couple of days. Andre Iguodala was reportedly offered a four-year, $52 million contract from the Sacramento Kings, only to have it taken back before being afforded the time to make a big decision. Was it the right move by the Kings? Should Iguodala be upset? Does any of this matter until Dwight Howard descends from the mountains of Colorado or Montana to make his decision? Should any of us have a clue whom Howard might pick?
The Minnesota Timberwolves have committed $44 million to Chase Budinger and Kevin Martin. This means they probably won't get Andrei Kirilenko back unless the deal for Martin is a sign-and-trade that they can work out this week. Is it smart to abandon defense for offense? Does it mean the Wolves are going to be a fun playoff team with a very low ceiling? Do they have to take this step before they start worrying about becoming a playoff contender?
