Before NBA moratorium period

Paul Pierce has been hitting the news for long, signing a contract with his home LA clippers worth $10.6 million. The Clippers only had their taxpayer minimum to offer him, and that was enough to lure him from the Washington Wizards, with whom he proved to be every bit the veteran leader they had hoped in the post-season. This deal also united Pierce with coach Doc Rivers; he has been training with the coach Rivers for nine years while he was playing for Boston. He won the NBA title under Rivers coaching in 2008.

Atlanta Hawks maybe re-signing the deal with Millsap, but it cannot be confirmed till July 9.

Next player to be in news is Jimmy Butler, who is about to sign deal with Chicago Bulls, a 5-year maximum contract, the salary of which would be decided after July 9 since it is not allowed to sign player before that date. He has been named NBA’s most improved player, earlier in the breakout season. In this breakout season, Butler made his first All-Star team.
