Top 10 Recent NBA Signings

10. Lance Stephenson

Lance Stephenson

Lance Stephenson's return to the Packers was the least anticipated NBA contract. Stephenson's third tenure with his draft team.  In 2010, Indiana drafted him 40th overall. From the first game, he was a nuisance. When defending, he was everywhere. He utilised their playstyle to throw them off.

09. DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins hasn't been terrific in a while. After 17 games, Milwaukee waived him.  He averaged 9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. This isn't his best performance; in his peak, he caused havoc. After joining the Warriors, injuries plagued him. First, he ruptured his Achilles tendon with the Pelicans.

08. Caris LeVert

Caris LeVert

LeVert playing for another team seemed unlikely. He'd become their star. With the Nets' current roster, they didn't need a future star. The Nets traded him to the Pacers to acquire Harden. MRI revealed a tiny tumor on his left kidney due to the transaction. LeVert is grateful for the trade that saved his life.

07. Tyrese Haliburton

Tyrese Haliburton

Haliburton's NBA signings make news. Haliburton was a good King. Many predicted he'd be the Kings' next superstar. The Kings traded him to the Indiana Pacers, however. Surprised with the trade. Kings rumors included Buddy Hield and Tristan Thompson.

06. P.J. Dozier

P.J. Dozier

Chaos surrounded this year's trade deadline. Teams trade, release, and sign free agents. The Dozier deal was the most surprising NBA signing. PJ Dozier is a solid guard for the Denver Nuggets. He was a Nuggets reserve who shined in key moments.

05. Joe Ingles

Joe Ingles

Joe Ingles' trade to the Portland Trail Blazers generated headlines. Many teams coveted Ingles. He made his intention to play Jazz plain. Ingles wants out of his deal after the Jazz missed the playoffs. Ingles' Utah contract just expired. He declined to resign, saying he wanted to aid another contender.

04. Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingi

Porzingis leaving the Mavericks was the most anticipated NBA signing. He wasn't on the team because his peak was over.  Porzingis was the 4th overall pick in 2015. Fans were disappointed since they didn't know what to anticipate from a tall, slender man.  Kristaps' high-scoring games changed that. In two years with the team, he averaged 22.7 points.

03. Montrezl Harrell

Montrezl Harrell

Montrezl Harrell may be Charlotte's finest NBA addition this season. Harrell was a part of the young-core Washington Wizards.  The Wizards' Montrezl averaged 14.1 ppg. He played backup center and power forward. He's short for a center at 6ft 7inches. His explosive gameplay offsets his height.

02. CJ McCollum

CJ McCollum

Recent NBA signings include McCollum joining the Pelicans.  CJ is Portland's second-leading scorer behind Damian Lillard. He had planned to play more seasons with the Blazers. Portland had to decide how to go after numerous postseason failures. Their second-best scores were traded.

01. James Harden

James Harden

Nobody expected this. The Nets traded Harden to the 76ers, who just moved to Brooklyn.  Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden were the Nets' big 3. Irving and Harden's injuries overshadowed their prior season. Harden wants out of Brooklyn for internal reasons. He wanted to join Joel Embiid with the 76ers.
