Now that the NBA free agency moratorium is over, teams around the league are beginning to officially announce the deals that have dominated the NBA news media for the last 10 days.
The biggest prize of this year's NBA free agency sweepstakes? Dwight Howard. He chose to leave the Los Angeles Lakers to join the Houston Rockets, featuring Jeremy Lin and James Harden. The Rockets finished one place behind the Lakers in the final 2012 NBA standings.
The Utah Jazz? They've sent the clear message that this year's team is all about the youth movement. One by one, nearly every player that came off Utah's books this year is one his way out of Salt Lake City. Al Jefferson went to Charlotte, Paul Millsap and Demarre Carroll went to the Hawks, Randy Foye went to the Nuggets, and Earl Watson went to Portland.
Many of the deals announced Wednesday were solidified some time ago. Still, many free agents — Mo Williams being a prime example — have yet to come to an agreement with any NBA team.
