Most people already know this, but in my opinion it almost is 100% he leaves.
not if Beasley does good. he said hes waiting to decideand i think it liesonhowwell their yoing talent develops.
Wade is gone. I know this doesn't mean he's going to Chicago, but Chicago is his hometown, he just bought a house there and he was in Chicago when he announced that he was no longer discussing his contract until next summer. If he leaves, I think Chicago will definitely be his top target.
My question now is... If it becomes clear as the season progresses that Wade isn't going to re-sign, should they trade them so they at least get something back in return?
Yea, I seriously doubt Wade goes back, unless they have a magical season. And I'm very sure they wont. No playoffs would basically guarantee he wont return though. And I think he'll be a Chicago Bull.
is chicago even going to have cap room to sign him? i feel like they have a lot of money tied up in salmons-hinrich-deng
nvm, according to hoopshype, they will have the space...
I think Hinrich will be moved, and if Deng has another underachieving year this year he would be moved by 2010-2011.
Wade and Rose together anyways wooh
Wade and Rose...their goes the East All-Stars starting backcourt for the next 3-4 years (Only cause Wade is 27 and another may come and take him out)
Wow that duo could be amazing. The only problem I see is that their games are so similar. It seems both players need the ball in their hands for them to be most effective. They are great teamates and would probably work it out.
He's going to be a Bull. At first I thought it was a given he was staying, with there great draft last year. But with Beasley's problems combined the Raptors refusal to let Bosh just walk (without a sign and trade which benefit both parties) makes me certain he is never going to resist returning to his home town.
All I have to say is the Bulls BETTER get a big guy to compliment him and rose. It would be tough for his legacy trying to play in MJ's shadow on a mediocre team.
I dont think Derrick Rose would constantly need the ball in his hands to be effective at all..He would still be a great player but he would defer to Wade if Wade goes there.
Wade and Rose would be ridiculous. But as someone else pointed out, I'm not sure if the bulls have the money available. But I think they will make sure they find the money to sign a guy like wade no matter what.
If wade does leave, then I believe that leaves miami with like 40 million dollars under the cap for next year. They would be able to go after 2 max players and some.
would miami trade him to chicago at the trade deadline if the heat are doing horrible and not making the playoffs, and they also no that he wont sign. would they trade him so they can get guys back?
Wade and the windy city seems like a match made in heaven.
But Amare might be a better complement to Rose.
what c or pf can they cheaply get through free agency or trade next year to compliment rose and wade.. I've always been a chris kaman fan, and they could try to trade hinrich for him...
The bulls will be under the cap next year. Rose, Wade, Deng, Thomas, Noah. Dantoni really missed out on this one.
i think wade will stay..its not fully about this year its more about this and next. if its clear boozer will stay and they add somemore peices as well as beasley making that big sophmore jump then he will stay. i dont think he will leave since pat riley will do everything it takes to get some players to come there which isnt gonna be too hard since it is miami. most fans want him to leave because of the fantasy back court of wade and rose which i would also like to see which is why everylil thing he does in chicago liek buying a house is more indication to them that hes going although they dont consider the fact that most nab players buy homes in there home town. durant bought a place out in maryland,shaq has a place in lousiana, stackhouse has a place out in nc. so thats not big new. as far as them 2 playign together i think it can work but not as well as some think. wade will handle the ball alot and he likes to set him self up..rose will still handle but not as much and if hes fine with being the second fiddle and his touchs going down and his game being similar to john stocken as far as not shooting as much then it could be perfect
