NBA trades, signings and more: Al Jefferson to Utah, Josh Childress is back, Antawn Jamison off the bench

  • Al Jefferson dealt to the Utah Jazz: he’ll finally get to play with an elite point guard in Deron Williams, and could move Mehmet Okur to the bench while popping much of the juicy potential Paul Millsap had; Kevin Love now has command over the Timberwolves’ frontcourt
  • Josh Childress will make his NBA comeback in Phoenix, which is where Hedo Turkoglu was traded to: this certainly puts a damper on Hakim Warrick’s value heading into the season, Turkoglu immediately becomes an appealing fantasy option again and Leandro Barbosa might be set to bounce back in Toronto
  • Tyson Chandler was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks along with Alexis Ajinca in exchange for Erick Dampier(‘s contract), Eduardo Najera and Matt Carroll: Chandler will split time with Brendan Haywood, and we’ll have to see where Dampier ends up
  • Quentin Richardson is with the Orlando Magic now, but he won’t be much better than the erratic bunches of threes he hit in Miami last season; he joins Chris Duhon, who can’t fare much worse than he did in New York…can he?
  • Antawn Jamison could come off the bench, according to new Cavs coach Byron Scott
  • Kyle Korver is on the Chicago Bulls, where he’ll likely come off the bench to hit the occasional three; of course, he joins Carlos Boozer
  • Jordan Farmar, Travis Outlaw and Anthony Morrow signed with the Nets
  • Luther Head signed with the Hornets, which doesn’t bode well for Marcus Thornton or Darren Collison
  • Udonis Haslem re-signed with the Miami Heat, of course
  • Ben Wallace is a Piston again
  • Matt Bonner is a Spur again
  • Timofey Mozgov is officially a Knick
  • Steve Blake is a Laker; he’ll split time with Derek Fisher and Shannon Brown
  • Tony Allen is on the Memphis Grizzlies
  • Jermaine O’Neal joins the senior living center that is the Boston Celtics, where Paul Pierce and Ray Allen re-signed
  • Dorrell Wright is on the Golden State Warriors

A glimpse at the possible future:

  • Mike Miller, Juwan Howard and Brad Miller to Miami?
  • Al Harrington to Dallas?
  • Raja Bell to the Lakers?
