welcome back everyone. i'm jason appelbaum. .gary is off tonight well if you're a warriors fan.it was christmas come early today. .and no i'm not talking dwight howard. .more on him in a minute. i'm talking about andre igoudala. perhaps the biggest free agent on the market not named dwight howard --- the warriors just signed igoudala to a 4-year, $48 million dollar deal which in my opinion elevates them to elite status in the nba - putting them one step closer to the nba finals. remember a few months ago when the warriors played the nuggets in the playoffs. for stretches igoudala was the best player on the floor when. .he's a 6-foot-6 shooting guard-slash-small forward who at 29 is still his prime. .he's one of the more athletic players in the league and considered a lock down defender who can do a little of everything. >> and if you're a warriors fan it gets even better. .to sign igoudala they had
6:53 pm
to free up some cap space .so the managed to unload the hefty contracts of andris biedrins and richard jefferson -- both traded to utah for two future first round picks. .like i said, christmas come early for warriors fans. now as for howard. .though nothing official it looks like he has chosen to leave l-a for the houston rockets. yes ladies and gentleman the dwight howard sweepstakes are over. howard will team up with james harden for a formidable duo that should put the rockets in the conversation for the next few years. .howard reportedly considered the warriors but there was too much uncertainty that the warriors could work out a sign and trade with the lakers. .as for the lakers - according to sources they never really had a chance.that howard had made up his mind before they met with him on tuesday - and was put off even more by kobe's "let me show you how to win a title" sales pitch.
6:54 pm
now if i may weigh in for second - probably best the warriors didn't get howard. .no doubt he's a physical speciman.can rebound and block shots. .but lately he has brought too much drama wherever he goes.and may have disrupted the team chemistry. .plus the warriors would have had to part with a few key players to get him. .so good luck houston d12.but the warriors are better off without you meanwhile.the celtics introduced their new head coach today. .12 year old brad stevens. .alright he only looks 12.he's actually 36. still the youngest coach in the league. >> ra am here because i was able to work with great people here. >> .stevens comes from butler university and replaces doc rivers who left
