7 Biggest Takeaways of 2013 NBA Free Agency This Week
Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The two biggest dominoes in free agency—Dwight Howard and Chris Paul—fell last week, but there were still a ton of critical signings and player swaps over the past few days.

And for those paying attention, there was a lot to learn.

In addition, it's clear that players like Monta Ellis aren't going to be making big bucks in tomorrow's smarter NBA (unless the Dallas Mavericks continue to overpay players out of desperation).

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets are officially stomping the New York Knicks in the battle for headlines.

Don't worry, this list of takeaways won't belabor every signing or scrutinize the numerous ripoffs and bargains. Instead, think of it as a broader look at the trends that revealed themselves during the past week of free-agent activity.
