Who will be the next big name FA to sign a big time deal?????
LeBron said he wants it done by June 5th, hopefully we dont have to wait for that.
Joe Johnson or Lebron. I say Johnson because he will ge max offer & bit at it maybe with NY. And Lebron is the big dog so it's goona take him to go somewhere for everyone else to follow.
july not june
Hard to say..But Lebron has set a deadline of July 5th to make his decision..Look for him to remain in Cleveland..I dont think Bosh is going to Miami and play 2nd fiddle to Wade..Look for him to sign with the Nets or Knicks..He really loves the idea of playing in a big market like New York if the Knicks can get a starting center...Expect Boozer to sign with the Heat..And make a deal to get Tyson Chandler from Charlotte..
ATL and Toronto are throwing max 6 year deals at JJ and Bosh, so it looks like Bosh will be gone through a sign and trade while JJ stays in the ATL
Who do you see the Nets getting?????? We don't need anymore swingmen, we could use an upgrade @ the backup PG spot & also @ the 4 spot.
Amare and Pierce are the two i think of if Pierce were to leave. If Pierce left he'd probably go to LAC (which im totally opposed to and dont think it will happen, i'm just saying the possibilities) but NJ isn't out of the question if he wants to try and be the man one last time. Favors can come off the bench for a little bit until he's ready, then deal Amare to some team that thinks he's the man and thinks he can do everything he consistently shows he can't do, such as rebound at a high level and block shots..basically playing defense as a whole.
lee = nets
amare = knicks
boozer = heat
bosh = chicago
gay = HOPING nets, but i could see clippers
lebron = cleveland
nowitzki = mavs
pierce = celtics
johnson = hawks
What PG's may the Nets target because we have no depth @ that position???????
Patty Mills is a free agent, Will Bynum, KryptoNate, and Rafer Alston
I would like Shaun Livingston as a backup to Harris
nets signed ben uzoh outta tulsa...top 10 pg prospect on draft express...should be a decent back up, 6'3 205, good size...think he can be similar to darren collison...i dont think they can sign a veteran until they get their big FA signed first
Thanks for the Nets update
lebron would be dumb not to want to come here....look at everything we have the best situation by far...chicago isnt gonna work for the sheer fact rose is a PG...he needs the ball in his hands, lebron is best with the ball in his hands...harris, tho not the best shooter, can play off ball and is still a proven 20 pt scorer....lopez is a top 3 center, noah better defensively, is not on lopez's level offensively and brook will continue to get better defensively....plus with a stud prospect like favors and a PF signed, even david lee would be better than chicago and gibson, hes good but no potential like favors...courtney lee shows signs of shooting well terrence williams no jumper but very good all around player, damion james is gonna be legit, i like him alot...i dont see any other team offering what the nets can, plus he can build a legacy there with our limited history
i guess the nets could go after eral watson or jordan farmar as well. it would be great to see uzoh play in the nba because watching him as a 3 star recruit in san antonio, i didnt think he could make it but he is a good kid and works hard. he isnt a pure point guard though. he is more of a combo guard.
Joe Johnson then Wade then Lebron in terms of big names
Bosh will take longer becaz of possible sign n trade.
Dirk might sign an extension before these guys.
Drew Gooden gone to Bucks for 32 mill for 5 yrs
Dark to Twolves for 20 mill for 4 years.
Lebron to the Nets is getting a little crazy but who knows.
They don't have the shooters to help him though they could acquire some.
Lopez is not a top 3 Center easy did you forget about Howard, Yao, Bynum, Bogut thats just off the top of my head.
Courtney Lee is a lil overrated yeah he has potential but so far in 2 years hasn't show that much.
T. Williams and Favors could be nice players for the future definately if the Nets keep them.
Devin Harris can play without the ball but again he's not much of a shooter.
That team would be able to run for sure with some athletic players in the open court.
With Bosh saying the big 3 in Miami probably not going to happen who knows.
If Miami is out of the running than every other team including the Cavs moves up on the list.
Knicks still got a shot if Lebron who likes Gallo's game would come to NY he could pick a PF of his choice between Boozer, Amare and Lee.
i cant say bogut or bynum is better than lopez right now...boguts career averages are almost identical to lopez's rookie year stats...bynum because of his size and skill set could be more dominating center but isnt yet...howard obviously and yao IF healthy is but thats in question right now
You don't have to say it look at Bogut last year.
I'm not looking at numbers easy to put up big numbers on a 12 win team.
Who was Nets PF last year again?
The NY- LeBron meeting is going on 3 hours now.....
It really is Lebron or bust now for Knicks.
