Bonus links: Kevin O' Conner on why this puts the Cavs closer to a back-to-back title. What does this mean for Paul Millsap? (Toronto and Sacramento are both currently expressing interest).

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Below is a list of big ($50+ million) free agent contracts signed and complete in the last 10 years. I excluded extensions and contracts that have not yet been completed. Each row contains the free agent, the signing team, the years of the contract, the contract details, the WAR accumulated in the contract years (regardless of whether the player was traded), the dollar value via FanGraphs based on that WAR total, and the difference between the contract cost and the WAR dollar value.
