NBA offseason roundup: Miles signs with Celtics


NBA offseason roundup: Miles signs with Celtics
The Boston Celtics signed forward Darius Miles, who missed the last two NBA seasons because of knee injuries.

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said Friday that Miles worked out twice for the team before signing.

Miles played for Portland in the 2005-06 season. Portland waived Miles after it was determined his right knee was damaged enough to qualify as a career-ending injury. Full story...

Nuggets keep sharp-shooting Smith

The Denver Nuggets re-signed restricted free agent J.R. Smith to a multiyear contract on Friday. The 22-year-old guard averaged 12.6 points for the Nuggets over the past two seasons.

He shot nearly 40 percent from 3-point range, the best percentage in team history for players with at least 100 3-pointers. Full story...

Spurs re-sign veteran guard Finley

The Spurs have re-signed guard Michael Finley. Terms of the deal weren't released.

The 35-year-old Finley started 61 games last season, with sixth man award winner Manu Ginobili providing a spark for San Antonio behind him. Finley averaged 10.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists, playing in all 82 games in his 13th NBA season. He shot 37 percent from 3-point range. Full story...

Deng decides to stay with Bulls

Restricted free agent forward Luol Deng and the Chicago Bulls have agreed to six-year contract that could be worth as much as $80 million.

Deng averaged 17 points and 6.3 rebounds last season, while shooting 47.9 percent. That marked a drop from 2006-07, when he scored 18 points a game with 7.1 rebounds, while making 51.7 percent of his shots. Deng had rejected a five-year contract extension last October that was worth $57.5 million.

Artest traded to Rockets

The Sacramento Kings traded talented but combustible forward Ron Artest to the Houston Rockets, a move that could turn Houston into a legitimate NBA contender. In return, the Kings received guard Bobby Jackson, a No. 1 draft pick next season and rookie Donte' Greene. Full story...

Sixers woo Williams with five-year pact

The 76ers re-signed guard Louis Williams on Monday, keeping a key member of Philadelphia's first playoff team in three years. The deal was reportedly worth more than $25 million over five years.

Williams, who was a restricted free agent, averaged 11.5 points in 23 minutes per game last season.

Bobcats keep Okafor with $72M deal

The Charlotte Bobcats ended a year of uncertainty with top rebounder and shot blocker Emeka Okafor by coming to terms on a six-year, $72 million deal with the restricted free agent.

The move comes a year after Okafor turned down a contract for similar money and assures new coach Larry Brown will have the team's top inside presence when he begins his record ninth NBA coaching job in the fall.

Warriors give big money to Biedrins, Ellis

The Golden State Warriors re-signed center Andris Biedrins to a six-year contract worth more than $62 million, retaining another restricted free agent and possibly capping a tumultuous month for the club.

Biedrins averaged career-highs with 10.5 points and 9.8 rebounds with the Warriors last season, his fourth with the club that drafted him with the 11th overall pick in 2004. He also led the NBA in field-goal percentage, making 62.6 percent of his shots.

The Warriors also made sure they would have Monta Ellis in their backcourt at least for the near future, re-signing the explosive guard to a six-year deal worth about $66 million.

Vujacic stays with Lakers for $15M

Had it been strictly a matter of economics, Sasha Vujacic would have left the Los Angeles Lakers to play in Europe. Turns out Vujacic's decision was based on more than just the money.

"I'm glad it worked out. Tough month," Vujacic said at team headquarters after signing a three-year, $15 million contract to return to the Lakers. "The only thing I can say is I'm happy to stay in L.A., I'm happy to stay with the Lakers. That was my first option. It would be hard to leave."

Hawks replace Childress with Evans

The Hawks completed their deal with Maurice Evans, locking up a replacement for sixth-man Josh Childress. The 6-foot-5 Evans started 47 times for the Orlando Magic last season and averaged a career-high 9.3 points. He was quickly targeted by Atlanta after Childress, a restricted free agent, stunned Atlanta last week by signing with Greek powerhouse Olympiakos.

Going Greek: Childress signs with Olympiakos

Josh Childress is leaving the Atlanta Hawks for Greek club Olympiakos, reversing the course of the many international stars who have signed with the NBA. Heading overseas allows Childress to make more money than he could have as a restricted free agent in the United States. The Hawks had the right to match an offer from another NBA team, but not from an international club. Full story...

Clippers get another Davis: Ricky

After signing Baron Davis last month, the Clippers added another free-agent guard with the same last name. Ricky Davis, an unrestricted free agent who turns 29 in September, averaged 13.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists while playing in all 82 games for the Miami Heat last season. He shot 43.3 percent from the floor, 40.5 percent on 3-pointers and 78.7 percent from the foul line..

Sixers sign free-agent G Ivey

Guard Royal Ivey signed a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. Ivey has averaged 4 points, 1.5 assists, 1.3 rebounds and 14.3 minutes in 263 games over four seasons in the NBA. A second-round pick by Atlanta in 2004, Ivey played three seasons with the Hawks and one in Milwaukee.

Warriors match Clippers' offer for Azubuike

Kelenna Azubuike will return to the Golden State Warriors after the club matched the Los Angeles Clippers' three-year, $9 million contract offer for the shooting guard. Azubuike averaged 8.1 points and 4.0 rebounds in 81 games last season with the Warriors, who signed the former Kentucky guard out of the NBA Developmental League in January 2007.

Nets trade PG Williams to Warriors

Well, so much for fighting for his job. Point guard Marcus Williams, who recently vowed to fight for his minutes after the New Jersey Nets acquired Keyon Dooling, is headed to Golden State for a future first-round pick. Full story...

Barnes makes Suns his sixth team

Well-traveled sharpshooter Matt Barnes signed a one-year contract with the Phoenix Suns. The 6-foot-7 forward spent the last two seasons with the Golden State Warriors, averaging 8.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.
