Biggest Losers of NBA Free Agency Thus Far

Joel C. Cordes@@bballJoelNBA Associate EditorJuly 26, 2012

For all of the successes during the 2012 NBA offseason, there were plenty of missteps. However, failure comes in many different forms.

NBA Featured Columnist Joel C. Cordes and NBA Assistant Editor Ethan Norof break down which players, general managers and franchises notched a big “L” in the loss column.

Once again, the New York Knicks appeared to move heaven and earth, yet did they just load more cynicism and bad press on their shoulders in the process?

Did point guards like Ramon Sessions and Raymond Felton trade frustrating situations for even more difficult ones?

How much did the Dallas Mavericks salvage in the truly horrendous start to their offseason? Can we still call them losers, and if so, by how much?

How do we quantify what Daryl Morey has done with the Houston Rockets? He took a big gamble, lost the bet, and is now left with a bunch of chips. Are the middling Rockets better for it?

Finally, what about those Phoenix Suns? They had a flurry of moves to cover their loss of Steve Nash, but are they any more of a contender than before?

You can catch these guys and more NBA offseason debates on the Court Vision blog’s Basketball by Association podcast.
