But we're not just talking about the players who signed new contracts on the open market. Trades made during the draft, before that selection process and after it took place are all factored in. So too are the decisions to add rookies to rosters, as well as to hand out contract extensions to star players in New Orleans and Portland. That said, we're only concerned with the biggest moves—the ones that will have the largest impact on the franchises directly involved. The New York Knicks added a quality contract when they completed a sign-and-trade for Kyle O'Quinn. But none of those moves, or the ones similar to them, move the needle as much as these 25. . Shams Charania of RealGM. com, he signed a five-year deal worth $35 million to remain with the Celtics, and that should turn out to be a rather team-friendly endeavor. Though an average annual value of $7 million may seem exorbitant for a player of Crowder's current caliber, that will hardly be a blip in the bookkeeping when the cap jumps exponentially in coming campaigns. During the 57 games he spent with the Celtics in 2014-15, he averaged 9. 5 points, 4. 6 rebounds, 1. 4 assists, 1. 0 steals and 0. 4 blocks while shooting 41. 8 percent from the field and 28. 2 percent from beyond the arc. Those shooting percentages will certainly trend in the right direction as he gains more comfort in his new digs and regresses to his career mean.
Even after the Atlanta Hawks ' thorough dismantling of the Brooklyn Nets in a series-clinching Game 6 victory on Friday, it would be understandable to think of the Washington Wizards as the favorites in the second round of the Eastern Conference... Sure, the Hawks were on the money Friday night, riding a 41-point third quarter to a big lead and then cruising to the final buzzer and a 111-87 victory. Washington won by 31 points in front of its hometown fans, taking advantage of a team that often looked as if it had completely forgotten how to play basketball. While the Wizards were recovering and watching other teams attempt to join them in the second round, the Hawks were failing to live up to the expectations typically associated with a No. 1 seed. Kyle Korver struggled with his shot, while Al Horford 's injured pinky clearly gave him trouble on those mid-range shots he so often swishes through the twine. So again, it would be perfectly understandable to think the Wizards are favorites heading into the next round, despite their No. 5.
LEWISTOWN, Pa. -- Police said around 6:30 in the a. m. people in Granville Township dialed 911 reporting gunfire. It brought police to a home on Fairway Plaza where they would make a gruesome discovery: two women shot and killed. The coroner said the victims are 81-year old Floris Lewis and her 44-year old daughter Carol White. Details are limited, but officials said the incident involved one of the victim's estranged husband. Police arrested two suspects within an hour of the crime. It was very good police work,” said David Molek, the Mifflin County district attorney. “We believe at this point that these firearms were stolen in Huntingdon County within the last 48 hours,” Molek said. State police are working to confirm if any of the dozen. Police dogs were seen sniffing a nearby baseball field. Neighbors in Granville Township said they are trying to make sense of the slayings. Nothing close to this ever happens in this area. It is just wild it happened next door,” said Clayton Beers of Granville Township.
