The Dime Podcast Ep. 40: Talking Free Agency With Tim Bontemps


Hello, friends. Welcome to the latest edition of the Dime Podcast, in which we discuss everything that has happened so far during a hectic NBA free agency period. As always, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast on your podcast listening platform of your choosing (Omny, iTunes, Google, Stitcher) and leave us a review.

Today, Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) of the Washington Post joins Martin and Robby. The gang touches on a number of the major moves we’ve seen up to this point and how they can have an impact on the league, both in the immediate and the distant future.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to hear on today’s podcast.

  • Discussing the Fourth of July, which we can do, because the major moves of free agency are mostly over.
  • Everything happened really fast, which was … kind of weird.
  • The bizarre free agent market this offseason.
  • Figuring out what Clint Capela should do.
  • Houston is running it back, just without Trevor Ariza, and paid Chris Paul a ton of money. All of those things might be bad.
  • The Warriors got DeMarcus Cousins, because of course they did. Here’s why it made sense for New Orleans to let him walk.
  • Hey someone should sign Wayne Ellington, like, right now.
  • The Lakers’ roster construction after signing LeBron is something else.
  • Could LeBron and co. miss the playoffs?

All that and much, much more on today’s edition of The Dime Podcast.
