LOS ANGELES (GaeaTimes.com)- Few will disagree to the fact that the NBA Free Agency fever is on and if the teams are in search for the best player suitable to their team and their need then on the other hand the free agents have all set their own priorities. The former Los Angeles Clippers Point guard Steve Blake on Friday declared that he has agreed to sing a four-year guaranteed contract with the Los Angeles Lakers team that is offering him $16 million. However, Steve Blake is yet to sign the contract which could not be done until the next week.
Steve Blake last year had played for the Los Angeles Clippers and during the last seven years he had played for the teams like Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets, Portland Trail Blazers and Milwaukee Bucks. The player who weighs 173 pounds and is 6-foot-3 tall bears a career average of 7.5 points and assists of 4.3 points. He also has to his credit an impressible percentage of three-pointer range shot delivery. Steve Blake had delivered 39.3 percent of his shots from the three-pointer range. The Los Angeles Lakers which is known for its three-pointer shots magic will no doubt reap benefit from his inclusion.
According to some analyst in the Los Angeles Lakers team Steve Blake will be able to replace the former start up point guard of the team Derek Fisher who this season entered the arena of free agency. Steve Blake had reportedly asked for a multi-year contract with the team. He had also said that if he is offered a better deal by any of the other teams he could shift his priority.
