  • LeBron James


    LeBron James has changed teams, leaving hometown franchise1 Cleveland Cavaliers for the sunnier climes that life as a Los Angeles Laker will bring.


    That move alone is enough to make this past NBA off-season one of the most historic in recent memory. But besides one of the greatest, if not the very best, players to ever play basketball switching jerseys2, that isn't the only notable move this summer.


    When an athlete as talented as LeBron James becomes available, there will of course be a few main suitors, but in reality, front offices across all 30 NBA teams will have at least explored how they could entice3 the four-time MVP to sign with them.


    LeBron bought a second property in Brentwood, Southern California last December for 17. 5m pounds, while LA can provide him with a strong platform for his business interests as he enters the latter stages of his career. The fourth year of his deal is a player option, which essentially4 means he's only under contract for three seasons.


    Kawhi Leonard


    Kawhi Leonard's departure from the Spurs was slow, painful and confusing. Neither side has publicly commented on why their relationship eroded5, but it's pretty clear that the two parties stopped seeing eye to eye.


    Leaving San Antonio will also cost Leonard a pretty penny. Had he stayed, he would've been eligible6 to sign a five-year 165m pounds supermax deal. Instead, the maximum deal he can now sign is a four-year 144m pounds deal with the Raptors, while another team could only offer him a maximum of 107m pounds across four seasons. The difference in earning potential could cost Leonard as much as 58m pounds.

    离开圣安东尼奥也会让莱昂纳德在经济上承受相当大的损失。如果能留守马刺,莱昂纳德就有资格签下一份为期五年、价值1. 65亿英镑的超级合同。相反,他现在与猛龙队最多只能签下一份四年1. 44亿英镑的合同,而其他球队则最多只能给他提供一份在四年1. 07亿英镑的合同。这次交易可能会使伦纳德直接损失掉5800万英镑。


    DeMarcus Cousins


    Cousins averaged 25. 5 points, 12. 9 rebounds7, 5. 4 assists, 1. 6 blocks and 1. 6 steals per game in 2017-18. That level of production should put him in the highest contract tier. Instead he signed with the league's best side for a bargain price.

    2017-18赛季,考辛斯场均能拿下25. 5分,12. 9个篮板,5. 4次助攻,1. 6次盖帽和1. 6次抢断。这样出色的数据本来可以为他带来一份顶薪合同。而事实却恰恰相反,他以极低的价格与联盟现在最好的球队签约。

    For Golden State, the move is largely viewed as low-risk, exceptionally high-reward type of move. If it works, then the Warriors8 probably just secured their fourth championship in five years. If it doesn't, they can sever9 their ties with him next summer with no financial ramifications10.


    Paul George


    Last summer, the Oklahoma City Thunder took a huge risk in trading for Paul George. The small forward only had a year left on his deal and it was widely believed that the Thunder were only getting the former Indiana Pacer as a one-year rental11, as George was very vocal12 in outlining his love for Los Angeles and desire to play for the Lakers.


    The risk has paid off and now George will remain in Oklahoma for the next few seasons, making the Thunder dark horse contenders in the Western Conference.


    Isaiah Thomas


    Spare a thought for Isaiah Thomas. This time last year, it seemed a certainty that his next contract would be a huge one. The point guard was fresh off the best season of his career and came fifth in the race to win the NBA's MVP award.


    However,for now, the reverse happened and now he has to prove himself as an elite13 talent once again, signing a short-term deal in hope of having a strong enough season to help him secure a much bigger deal in 2019.
