    There was a ton of money thrown around to NBA players on the first day of free agency in 2016. A pair of former Thad Matta players were involved in the free agent frenzy.

    Former Buckeye point guard Mike Conley agreed to stay with the Memphis Grizzles, the team that drafted him in 2007. The contract Conley received was $153 million for five years. Yes you read that right, he will average almost $31 million a year for the next five years guaranteed. That is more than Lebron James (you might have heard of him) has made from the NBA his entire career.

    Mike is averaging 44% from the field and little over 37% behind the arch. His career average of 13.6 points along with 5.6 assists per game. Conley has also been named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 2013 while also taking home the NBA Sportsmanship Award in 2014, 2016.

    The former Buckeye played for Thad Matta in 2006/2007 — helping take the Scarlet and Gray to the National Championship game in 2007 before losing to Florida.

    The second former Buckeye star to get a very nice contract was former National Player of the Year (2010) Evan Turner. Turner agreed to a contract with the Portland Trailblazers for four years at $70 million. He will be leaving former Buckeye Jared Sullinger who he has recently played with in Boston.

    Evan was drafted by Philadelphia 76ers in 2010. He has also spent time with the Indiana Pacers along with the Boston Celtics the team he is leaving.

    Its great seeing former Buckeyes cash in. The question that needs to be asked, do they get the same calls along with mail asking for more donations?

    There is a new athlete facility planned for the campus.
