Where will the top free agent guards sign this summer??
I was analyzing where the premier guards would sign this year and this is the list I came up with:
Kidd signs with the Lakers: jackson loves big guards, kidd wants a championship and kobe loves playin with kidd
Bibby resigns with Hawks: Bibby wants to stay in atl and wont get the money he wants elsewhere.
Andre Miller signs with Cavs: cavs have some money to spend and a distributing PG might be the best bet, Miller wants to get out of the 1st rd and make a legit run.
Jarrett Jack resigns with Indiana: Jack is the answer at point, TJ Ford is out. Jack wants to stay in Indiana and continue his growth.
Nate Robinson signs with Kings: Knicks wont use cap space until 2010, Kings have liked Nate for awhile and need backcourt depth and a scoring 6th man.
Sessions resigns with Bucks: May want to play elsewhere but Bucks will let Charlie V leave to keep Sessions.
Felton resigns with Bobcats: Went from doghouse to playoff push catalyst, Cats wont be dumb enough to let him walk after almost making the mistake of trading him.
Gordon sign with Pistons: Detroit has the money and needs a big shot type of player after losing chauncey and gettin nothing out of Iverson.
Iverson signs with Spurs: Spurs lacked scoring off the bench and Popovich may be the only coach to get Iverson to accept a 6th man role.

i like the Kidd headin to the Lakers.....yea he really is lookin for a championship....Bibby is most likely stayin with ATL.....Pacers better resign Jarrett Jack.....i hear Steph Curry is comin to the knicks and so they wont resign Nate.......they'll resign David Lee though.....and yea Nate should be headin to the Kings......i agree with Sessions stayin with Bucks and Felton resigning.....
as for Iverson headin to the Spurs i doubt it...i like what David Aldridge said about Iverson headin to the Bobcats....and they need someone with that kind of scorin ability.....Iverson is headin to Charlotte....so many reasons to bac that up.... http://www.nba.com/2009/news/features/david_aldridge/04/02/iverson.20090...
i see Brandon Jennings gettin drafted by Golden State....then Jamal Crawford, going with his early termination option in his contract and signing with the Pistons......i see Toronto signing Ben Gordan.....they are lookin for someone with his scoring ability...yea, i know they need a wing player, but with Marion most likely to only fetch about 8-9mil this summa, Raps will prolly keep him....the Raps actually have the money to sign marion and then sign Gordan to a 5 year 55-60 mil contract......
as for Andre Miller, i see the Sixers resigning him......
Pistons seem to be the front runners for Millsap....people say he'll fetch a lot....but not as much as u think....i think they should be able to easily convince him to make the move to Detroit....i wouldn't be surprised if its for 5-6 mil even.....Jamal Crawford for 8 mil is most likely if he goes with the early termination.......if the Jamal Crawford plan doesn't work out, then get Andre Miller......should fetch the same or even less money than Crawford.....with that being said they still have a lot of money to work with for 2010.....Wallace, this summa, would resign for a lot less than 13.9 mil for obvious reasons.....with the savings of Wallace and Kwame Brown and the extra balance after signing Crawford/Andre Miller and Millsap.....going after Chris Bosh shouldnt be that hard......Pistons have always said that they were interested in Bosh.....ever since they lost out on him in that draft....
with that being said, if Sac do get the #1 pick, the Raps should work to trade Bosh for that #1 Pick and get Griffin to replace him......Sac, even if they sign Nate in the summa, is one of the few teams that have the capability to take on Bosh's contract........even if he does leave to the Pistons after that one year stint with the Kings, the Kings will have nothing to lose....they would have 15 mil and more to spend in 2010 summa on any free agent.......Amare Stoudemire, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Tyson Chandler, Manu Ginobili, Richard Jefferson, Joe Johnson, Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Michael Redd are possible candidates.....might be able to sign 2......need i say more...
If Raymond Felton gets a 3pt shot...he reminds me so much of C-Billups I hope he leaves and find a starting gig
Jason Kidd- Portland. They need a true PG.
Mike Bibby- Indiana. They could use him and try to ship out Ford
Miller- Dallas. He can be a good PG with Dirk
Jack- Indiana. He wont start, but he will be there "young PG"
Nate Robinson- Kings. I agree.
Sessions- Bucks. I agree again
Felton- Pistons. Dumars is in the hot seat. He need a PG to allow Stuckey to play SG. Felton is in the Billups mold.
Gordon- Hawks. He will be a 6th man
Honestly I don't care who goes where as long as Iverson gets the respect he deserves, he's not a 6th man, he's an All-Star still.
Jason Kidd, is one of if not my favorite PG of all time, I just want him to win a ring.
