NBA Free Agency Betting - Let Freedom Ring

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 9:52:41 PM

From bleak to unique to negotiations complete, the National Basketball Association season was salvaged and there will be a flurry of sports betting activity starting December 9 to sign the best free agents the world has to go offer.

Training camps will start on that same aforementioned date with the season kicking off with a 5-game slate on Christmas Day but online sports bettors need to pay attention to the movement of teams now because it will directly affect results and point spreads.

Some of the intriguing story lines about free agents this year include the saga of New Jersey product David West.

The first-round draft choice a few years ago by the New Orleans Hornets, this power forward averaged 21 points in his first season in the league but hurt his knee last year and now could be on the block. The knee will cause some teams concern but with his teammate Chris Paul a free agent next year and likely to go, West will likely be moved.

He would be a great fit in New Jersey with Deron Williams but also may travel west to join the young and the restless of the Sacramento Kings.

The Denver Nuggets have their work cut out holding on to Nene, who is a 6 foot, 11 inch force that was disrespected by the team last year, according to online betting sources. He has been loyal to the franchise, could have and wanted to sign an extension but was hung out to dry.

Looking around, Nene now sees Denver players like J.R. Smith, Wilson Chandler and Kenyon Martin all signed in China and young point guard Arron Afflalo pondering another team. The feeling is Denver could be left holding the bag and all because they got frugal at the wrong time.

The Russian Rocket Andrei Kirilenko has always been an intriguing player and at times, he was awesome for the Utah Jazz as sort of an Inspector Gadget man with his extremely long wing span and the ability to play solid defense. His time with Utah probably has some to an end.

He got paid nearly $18 million last year and now with Utah likely to developed youngster Gordon Hayward, the player known as AK 47 is expendable. He has signed with a team in Russia but has an NBA out clause but don’t be surprised if he ends up in New Jersey.

Jersey owner Mikhail Prokorov is himself Russian, has deep pockets and he’s always been smitten by Kirilenko.

Veteran Jason Richardson could be a potent weapon from off a contender’s bench but he will have to take a pay cut. At nearly $15 million, the Orlando Magic will not likely re-sign him but he can provide instant offense off the pine and very well could spell double/digit production.

On the last and other end of the spectrum 23-year-old Thaddeus Young may be leaving the City of Brotherly Love. The quick and versatile small forward can run the floor and score and has tons of upside.

All the teams and all the sportsbooks betting fans have to really pay attention to the free agent movement to attempt to get that winning edge.
