What I learned from NBA free agency: there are so many GIFs of people throwing money around

Call it crazy, crazy money

NBA teams were handing out a lot of money to lesser-known players as free agency began, and some NFL stars like DeAngelo Williams had things to say about it. Twitter reaction

Some of this new NBA money will come back to the owners when these players retire and are part of ownership group that buy them out.

Portland breaks bank for Evan Turner

Brian Windhorst explains why he thinks the Trail Blazers paid too much for Evan Turner.


Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Portland remains very much in the hunt for Pau Gasol even after the Evan Turner signing today, per league sources. Might take some maneuvering, but Blazers have room & flexibility.

Kevin Durant & the Clippers met for 4 hrs Friday night & sources close to the situation say KD was "blown away" by the Clips' presentation

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Nothing is done yet but some members of the Knicks' organization told people earlier in the day that they expect to have at least $11 million available if and when the deal for Joakim Noah is finalized. Members of the Knicks' organization, including Phil Jackson and Steve Mills, are meeting with Joakim Noah in an Orlando-area hotel at the moment. Most of the remaining cap space is expected to be used on a shooting guard. The Knicks' available space can increase, of course, if they get rid of some players on the roster.

And amid this "That much for HIM???" let's remember that the typical NBA player is better at basketball than 99% of the rest of the world

Take a deep breath and realize: A) We're not even 24 hours into NBA free agency. B) We haven't heard from Kevin Durant yet.
