Two interesting 10 day contracts have been signed in the past few days.
The Nets have resigned Jason Collins, like I thought they would. And the Kings have signed Royce White who was drafted by the Rockets in 2012, but never played.
I personally really like the move by the Brooklyn Nets in resigning Jason Collins. I think after this stint, they will sign him for the rest of the season. His presence in the paint and in the locker room is very much needed. The Brooklyn Nets are this year’s light switch team. Yes, I just made up a new term. A light switch gets turned on and off regularly throughout the day, so therefore, this makes sense. The Nets can honestly beat any team on any given night. The talent that they have is unheard off. With first year coach Jason Kidd finally figuring out the dynamics of his newly formed team, he is adjusting the the coaching side of the game nicely.
The Sacramento Kings signed Royce White, who previously played for the 76ers during the preseason before getting waive, to a 10 day contract, but sent him to the D-League. The D-League is the developmental league, for the new readers of my blog. This is a big deal because White suffers from an anxiety disorder that prevents him from flying. This disorder kept him from playing a single game with the Houston Rockets when they first drafted him. He used to drive to college away games even if his team were to fly. The more important thing about this signing is that they sent him to the D-League. Why? I have no idea. But they signed him because the Kings have recently bought out the contract of Jimmer Fredette. Fredette found a new home with the Bulls until the end of the season. A home I can see him living in for awhile.
