also they only got him because the cavs tried to get cute and sign him to under market value

supposedly the jazz were interested in drafting him but couldn't help themselves and traded up for a big white stiff instead

He was the rare guy who actually really wanted to play there too because he'd grown up in another cold mountainy state and was karl malone fan. But then I guess the altitude really hosed with his daughter's asthma or something like that.

The closest thing to a big FA signing is probably the Rasheed trade, since he refused to sign with Atlanta and would only go to a good team. The first round pick the Pistons gave up to get Rasheed became Josh Smith. I think that's the curse of the bambino moment for Detroit. Josh Smith. Will Josh Smith die before they're good again? It's possible.

Having an old dying owner and no clear succession really messed up the Pistons. Having a bad owner as a replacement isn't helping them either.

The Raptors best free agent signing is obviously Fred Van Vleet, but I have no idea who their best FA who was actually in the NBA. Dell Curry? Landry Fields just for the story? Their two biggest UFA signings are Hedo Turkoglu and DeMarre Carroll.

Signed from Spain, so doesn't satisfy the "was actually in the NBA" criterion.

Oh crap I forgot that Alex English was a FA signing. That might be the best one by a small market team ever. Unless you count LeBron going back to the Cavs.

i have absolutely no idea what the bulls are going to do, no idea if they're going to try to trade zach or laurie and blow it up or try to hope that the CORE and maybe one wing player capable of playing professional basketball can get them to the 8 seed or whatever, it was sort of comforting to know exactly what boneheaded poo poo the old front office would do because they were lazy and always did the same things.

Raptors fans obviously try not to remember it, but Hakeem Olajuwon has to be their biggest FA signing.

Biggest, not rotundeust.

In terms of best signings, yeah it's got to be FVV. Bismack Biyombo worked out pretty well for the Raptors too. Glad he got paid, elsewhere.

I saw that one on a list of denver free agent signings, but they traded for him first. Aren't as many "true" free agent signings as I thought apparently!!
