Nuggets add Anthony Randolph; Hill to Clippers
Steve Nash is really bummed out. Why? One of Nash's former teammates will play for his new rival, the Clippers, during the 2012-13 season.
Here's a roundup of the free agent news you missed overnight:
Knick don't match on Lin
Just days after Mike Woodson told the media Jeremy Lin would start at point guard for the Knicks during the 2012-13 season, the franchise opted not to match the Rockets' three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet for Lin.
Terry signs deal with Celtics
According to Boston Globe NBA scribe Gary Washburn, Jason Terry signed his contract with the Celtics. Washburn tweeted that the deal is officially for the mid-level exception.
Hill, Clippers agree to deal
According to several reports, Grant Hill is set to make his fourth NBA stop. The 39-year-old veteran small forward reportedly agreed to join the Clippers for the 2012-13 season. Hill started 46 games for the Suns last year, averaging career lows in points (10.2), rebounds (3.5) and minutes (28.1).
Nuggets replace Birdman with Randolph
Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reports that the Nuggets used their amnesty clause on Chris Andersen to open up room to sign free agent power forward Anthony Randolph. Randolph, 23, has averaged 17.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per 36 minutes over his four-year NBA career; however, his erratic play has kept him from earning consistent playing time.
Andersen was one of two players waived using the amnesty clause Tuesday; the Wizards also amnestied Andray Blatche. Tuesday was the deadline to waive players using the amnesty provision.
