Today’s Signings
July 11, 2007

UPDATE: Add Darko and Gerald Wallace to the list below. ESPN’s Chad Ford says Milicic is going to Memphis.  While Charlotte has agreed to shell out $57 million for Wallace.

For those of you who are tracking this sort of thing… here are the official free agent signings and numbers from today… all as reported by the Associated Press:

Chauncey Billups with Detroit: 5 years, $60 million (5th year is a $12 million team option)

Grant Hill with Phoenix: 2 years, $3.8 million (2nd year is a $2 million player option)

Rashard Lewis with Orlando (via sign and trade with Seattle): 6 years, $110 million.  Seattle receives conditional future second round pick and a trade exception in the $9 million range.

Orlando is probably going to announce its 5 year, $85 million extension with Dwight Howard tomorrow.  That will set the bar for Al Jefferson’s extension.  Keep that in mind when he comes out matching Dwight Howard’s statistics this year.
