|9/10/2014||Leandro Barbosa, G||The Golden State Warriors have signed guard Leandro Barbosa.
Analysis: Barbosa appeared in 20 games with the Phoenix Suns last season. He averaged 7.5 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 18.4 minutes per game.
|9/9/2014||Chauncey Billups, G||Billups tells Yahoo Sports he is retiring after 17 NBA seasons.
Analysis: The 2004 NBA Finals MVP says his desire is still strong, but he can't ignore the fact that he's had a hard time staying healthy. The 37-year-old Billups has played only 61 games over the last three seasons. Billups played this past season for the Detroit Pistons after returning to the team he led to the 2004 title. He was the third pick in the 1997 draft by the Boston Celtics. He also played for Toronto, Denver, Minnesota, New York and the Los Angeles Clippers.
|9/5/2014||Greg Monroe, F-C||A person with knowledge of the deal says Monroe has signed a $5.48 million, one-year qualifying offer with the Detroit Pistons. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because no announcement had been made. The move sets the stage for the 6-foot-11 Monroe to become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Monroe has been a consistent scorer for the Pistons since they drafted him with the seventh pick in 2010, but his future with the team is in doubt after Detroit failed to sign the restricted free agent to a long-term contract this offseason. Yahoo Sports first reported the signing Friday.
|9/4/2014||Greg Stiemsma, C||The Toronto Raptors have signed Stiemsma, a veteran free-agent center who played last season with New Orleans. The 6-foot-11 Stiemsma averaged 2.9 points and career highs of 4.1 rebounds and 18.3 minutes in 55 games last season.
Analysis: Stiemsma has also played for Minnesota (2012-13) and Boston (2011-'12) after starring college at Wisconsin. For his NBA career, he is averaging 3.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 16 minutes.
|9/3/2014||Chris Douglas-Roberts, G-F||The Clippers have signed Douglas-Roberts and forward-center Ekpe Udoh.
