LeBron James

詹姆斯以4年1.17亿英镑签约湖人

LeBron James has changed teams, leaving hometown franchise Cleveland Cavaliers for the sunnier climes that life as a Los Angeles Laker will bring.

这个夏天,勒布朗·詹姆斯终究离开了家乡小城克里夫兰,来到了阳光更加明媚的洛杉矶。

That move alone is enough to make this past NBA off-season one of the most historic in recent memory. But besides one of the greatest, if not the very best, players to ever play basketball switching jerseys, that isn't the only notable move this summer.

单凭詹姆斯一人的签约,就足以让这个休赛期成为几个赛季以来最具历史意义的一个。但是,除了这位历史第一小前锋,或许是历史第一球星,改换了东家之外,今年夏天还有着好几笔堪称震撼的签约。

When an athlete as talented as LeBron James becomes available, there will of course be a few main suitors, but in reality, front offices across all 30 NBA teams will have at least explored how they could entice the four-time MVP to sign with them.

当像勒布朗·詹姆斯这样有天赋的运动员出现在自由市场上的时候,当然会有一些球队成为他的主要潜在下家之一。但实际上,全联盟所有30支球队都在为如何吸引这位四届MVP得主与他们签约而绞尽脑汁。

LeBron bought a second property in Brentwood, Southern California last December for 17. 5m pounds, while LA can provide him with a strong platform for his business interests as he enters the latter stages of his career. The fourth year of his deal is a player option, which essentially means he's only under contract for three seasons.

去年12月,勒布朗以1750万英镑的价格在南加州的布伦特伍德买下了第二套房产,因为当他进入职业生涯的后半段时,洛杉矶可以为他提供一个更为强大的商业平台。合同的最后一年是球员选项,这意味着詹姆斯实际上只与湖人确保了接下来三个赛季的合同。

Kawhi Leonard

莱昂纳德被马刺交易到猛龙

Kawhi Leonard's departure from the Spurs was slow, painful and confusing. Neither side has publicly commented on why their relationship eroded, but it's pretty clear that the two parties stopped seeing eye to eye.

莱昂纳德离开马刺的过程无疑是非常缓慢、痛苦而又令人困惑的。无论是马刺还是莱昂纳德都没有公开阐述双方关系受损的原因,但很明显,双方就某些问题上产生了分歧。

Leaving San Antonio will also cost Leonard a pretty penny. Had he stayed, he would've been eligible to sign a five-year 165m pounds supermax deal. Instead, the maximum deal he can now sign is a four-year 144m pounds deal with the Raptors, while another team could only offer him a maximum of 107m pounds across four seasons. The difference in earning potential could cost Leonard as much as 58m pounds.

离开圣安东尼奥也会让莱昂纳德在经济上承受相当大的损失。如果能留守马刺,莱昂纳德就有资格签下一份为期五年、价值1. 65亿英镑的超级合同。相反,他现在与猛龙队最多只能签下一份四年1. 44亿英镑的合同,而其他球队则最多只能给他提供一份在四年1. 07亿英镑的合同。这次交易可能会使伦纳德直接损失掉5800万英镑。

DeMarcus Cousins

考辛斯一年四百万英镑签约勇士

Cousins averaged 25. 5 points, 12. 9 rebounds, 5. 4 assists, 1. 6 blocks and 1. 6 steals per game in 2017-18. That level of production should put him in the highest contract tier. Instead he signed with the league's best side for a bargain price.

2017-18赛季,考辛斯场均能拿下25. 5分,12. 9个篮板,5. 4次助攻,1. 6次盖帽和1. 6次抢断。这样出色的数据本来可以为他带来一份顶薪合同。而事实却恰恰相反,他以极低的价格与联盟现在最好的球队签约。

For Golden State, the move is largely viewed as low-risk, exceptionally high-reward type of move. If it works, then the Warriors probably just secured their fourth championship in five years. If it doesn't, they can sever their ties with him next summer with no financial ramifications.

对于金州勇士来说,签下考辛斯完全可以被视为一笔低风险、高回报的精明交易。如果考辛斯成功融入球队的话,那么勇士队很可能拿下五年来的第四次总冠军。如果考辛斯的表现未达预期,勇士也可以在明年夏天与他终止合同,而不用背负任何财务上的负担。

Paul George

保罗乔治4年1.04亿英镑与雷霆续约

Last summer, the Oklahoma City Thunder took a huge risk in trading for Paul George. The small forward only had a year left on his deal and it was widely believed that the Thunder were only getting the former Indiana Pacer as a one-year rental, as George was very vocal in outlining his love for Los Angeles and desire to play for the Lakers.

去年夏天,雷霆为了得到保罗·乔治而冒了很大的风险。当时,这位联盟顶级小前锋的合同还剩下一年,而人们普遍认为乔治只会在雷霆短暂停留,因为乔治曾数次直接在媒体面前表达他对洛杉矶的热爱和为湖人效力的愿望。

The risk has paid off and now George will remain in Oklahoma for the next few seasons, making the Thunder dark horse contenders in the Western Conference.

而现在,雷霆甘冒风险的勇气已经得到了回报,乔治在接下来的几个赛季将继续留在俄克拉荷马。届时,雷霆俨然会成为狂野西部中的一匹黑马。

Isaiah Thomas

小托马斯一年152万英镑与掘金签约

Spare a thought for Isaiah Thomas. This time last year, it seemed a certainty that his next contract would be a huge one. The point guard was fresh off the best season of his career and came fifth in the race to win the NBA's MVP award.

想一想,以赛亚·托马斯在去年的这个时候完全有资格要求一份顶薪合同。这位控球后卫刚刚度过了他职业生涯中最好的一个赛季,并在MVP评选中名列第五。

However,for now, the reverse happened and now he has to prove himself as an elite talent once again, signing a short-term deal in hope of having a strong enough season to help him secure a much bigger deal in 2019.

然而,时过境迁,眼下小托马斯的情况正好与那时相反,现在他必须接受一份短期合同,以得到再次证明自己的机会。他现在只能期望自己能在接下来的赛季中重回巅峰,以便在2019年的夏天签下一份与自己实力相符的合同。
