What team would Free Agent have greatest chance for success
Lebron,Bosh,Wade,Stat,Lee,Boozer,JJ...Where and how would they have best chance to win and be in steady contention after Free Agency...
To win a championship a team needs a good PG and a good defensive Center, so I would say the Bulls are the best option for those guys. You have a good PG in Rose and a good C in Noah, a pretty good core to go with whoever they get.
Yep I agree with Chicago. The Bulls already have some nice pieces already in place.
Somewhat surprisingly I might put the Nets up there too. I mean yes they were the worst team in the league this year but they have some solid pieces in place even if they don't get the #1 overall pick in the draft. Either of these lineups look really good:
PG Devin Harris
SG Courtney Lee
SF Lebron James or Joe Johnson/Terrence Williams
PF Derrick Favors/Yi Yianlin
C Brook Lopez
PG Devin Harris
SG Evan Turner/Courtney Lee
SF Terrence Williams
PF Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire or Carlos Boozer/Yi Yianlin
C Brook Lopez
Wade should be Sixer...yes the guy from Philly thinks the best free agent 2 guard should spurn his current team and hometown to win a championship and possibly become a MJ/Kobe type legend by winning multiple rings before that contract runs out...Wade alongside Iggy(Scottie type)Holiday(Ron Harper defense type) Thad( Left handed Kukoc 6th man type) Brand(Ho Grant vet leader type)Kapono(Kerr type 3 point shooter off bench) all they need is Jason Smith to be better than Longly and Wennington....Hire JVG or doug Collins and That team is built for Wade and Championship glory...they are capped out but figure that Miami has no team around Wade...they're even trading Beasley one of the only guys signed for next season...they have high hopes but still If you sign Wade and other big stars..you have no money for rest of team ..Wade-Bosh and scrubs isnt better than having whole team in place for you to win...Philly has top team pick... Lou Williams(scoring Point guard)...expire Dalembert contract and Speights a Florida guy to offer Miami for Wade in sign and trade...They'd get whole team for Wades contract...lose Sammy's services after one year and still have top ten pick..Speights and Williams to rebuild with whoever they trade Beasley for..they'd still have money for top Free agent after all that...Joe Johnson maybe Stat...maybe both...all caus they let Wade walk away...Screams win win to me...I would love to keep top 10 pick but for Wade I'd do it in a heart beat...
I'm not saying that this is an ideal location for anyone, but this could be the first time in decades someone could be excited to go to the Clippers. Yeah, they're the worst franchise in sports, but I'd find it hard to believe that no free agents would be tempted to go there. They only have $33.5 locked up next year, and for 5 players: Baron Davis, Chris Kaman, Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon, and DeAndre Jordan. Plus they have a lottery pick. With Blake healthy, that's a strong starting lineup (just wish they had some D).
Chicago and New Jersey, but New Jersey has a better chance...
Correct me if im wrong, but NJ can sign 2 max FAs right?
THE ULTIMATE, yet not IMPOSSIBLE off-season for New Jersey could give them a roster like this:
PG: John Wall, Devin Harris
SG: Terrence Williams, Courtney Lee
SF: LeBron James, Chris Douglass Roberts
PF: Chris Bosh, Yi Jianlian
C: Brook Lopez, Soloman Alabi
I doubt ALL THE DICE roll there way, but they got multiple draft picks, including a possible #1, and the cap room to sign TWO max free agents, they can cause ALOT of damage this offseason...
Holiday-Wade-Iggy-Brand-Smith-Thad Young-Kapono-Meeks-Green-(Williams-Speights-Dalembert)* Traded or not one or more would be traded along w/top 10 pick...plus we can still sign starting C for MLE...J.Oneal or Pryzbilla mid season...I'ld love to keep pick of course and draft Big man but thats still a good team...remember Wade and Rose is a good idea but both need ball all the time to be successful none is a true shooter...slashers like Iggy and Holiday...shooters like Kapono and Smith...post up guy like Brand...and defensive stopper with offensive game Holiday...think about those Bulls teams with Jordan and say that Philly doesn't have the prototype for Wade to be Champ...two vets like Reggie Evans or Brad Miller for cheap would make them instant contender...look at it closer...
Wade-True Star Guard-
Iguadola-5 tool All around star and USA baskestball finalist can you say Pipen in prime
Brand-Vet powrer forward-low post mid range rebounder(Grant)
B.Miller-Skilled Center plays in spurts and kills most centers(Luc Longley)
Thad Young-Tall lefty with inside outside game-6th man for sure-more of scorer than Kukoc ever was
Kapono( Shooter to kill teams with Wade/Iggy/Young Guard lineup...Kerr any one...)
Reggie Evans(through trade) Rodman dirty work guy...this could even be someone in draft....
Jason Smith( Skill big...strecthes floor and spells Miller....FYI I'd like Pryzbilla but he was injured and blazers want him i think....
that is immposible....
1. bosh said that he wants to be 1st string...
2.if they get lebron ( wont happen) then you dont need john wall.... lebron is point forward...
if you have him on team then your pg needs to be good shooter like mo in cleveland and you can be effective... pg isnt going to be floor general with lebron on team...
if the nets get Wall and Sign lebron the Nets would be nice,...insert Stat or Boozer or Lee and their my favorite team to watch next year...they wont have CDR he's in Memphis next year watch...should have never been a Net...SMH...But My Philly Dream team w/Wade and Iggy as the Jordan Pippen combo...if anything the Sixers need to make play for Wade or trade Iggy to Miami for Beasley and draft picks...maybe even a sign and trade of Lee or Johnson for Iggy and Dalembert...that would plan B...the we couldn't convince Wade to Sign and trade w/Miami and become world champ...
scarecrow your out of your mind, I'm a Philly fan and I think your crazy. First off Philly needs cap room so I doubt they trade Dalembert. Second off Thad and Iggy play the same position so most likely one of them is going to get traded next year. We don't have any pieces that Miami would want in a sign and trade.
Scarecrow, why would Miami do a sign and trade with Wade if they can sign him in that scenario?
Your saying they would essentially trade wade for some Philly scraps. If they have the option of re-signing Wade, Miami takes that for themselves unless they get a huge offer from another team.
1.Lebron needs NJ/Brooklyn(would want Knicks but they stink and have no young parts) NJ wins lotto I think they win Lebron and either PF Bosh/Stat/Lee/Boozer...i think Cb4 or Stat would be their dream but I think Lee or Boozer end up being the guy...remember Max guys want max MONEY...if they sign Lebron the second guy will not be max guy...think Boozer or Lee...any way their golden...very exiting and strong...
2.Bosh Needs Texas return...Rockets w/Yao and young hard working defensive team is place the right place to be...1 offensive shooting guard mid first to late draft and their the champs...this is if Yao palys in playoffs...big if...thats why I dont rule out the Spurs or Mavericks...
3.Wade needs SIXERS.!!!...That team is one star 2 guard away from being top 4 in the east and will scare everyone in 7 game series...Wade and Iggy equal MJ/Scottie period...Iggy is one small step away from being a top ten player in the league...all he needs is the go to guy...let Iggy do every thing else but have to score all game long...USA Basketball was a second away from taking Iggy over most of that team just to highlight this....
4. Amare needs Knicks...they will need a star and Stat will get his money here...they want be any better unless they get A point guard/shooting guard and Center but maybe they pull their head out their ass and trade Gallinari or Chandler to Wolves for Rubio and sign Rudy Gay and Oneal..and wait until Melo become a free agent.....
5.Joe Johnson needs Chicago....He unlike Wade can be had at a price that would allow them to reach out for Lee or Boozer...It all depends on what intentions JJ has...he will get Max or near Max offer...but he should think smart and settle somewhere near the 15 mil a year for 5 years to let the Bulls go for the PF they'd need to become force in the East...More so than Wade ...JJ has spot up game that would allow Rose to be most effective,...that's the best BBall move for Bulls...even though WaDe is the Man and will be hard to pass on..
6.David Lee needs Nets....Bulls or Bucks...If Bron signs with Nets he could just cross the state and with instantly ...he'd be a side note and who cares..But...If Bulls sign Wade Bulls will look like a lock for Lee to join and become Champs,,,Lee is smart enough to take a little less to win and be in better spot and natrual posistion along side Gator alum Noah...I think that will play a factor in his decision...But the Bucks are my dark horse team...them and the Kings would be great places for Lee to be the man on offense most nights...Think Lee and Bogut w/Young Bran Jennings and Xavier Henry plus cap space for the Melo Chase call it the "MeloCup" next year(nasty I know) or Lee running w/ Evans cleaning up his shots...
&.7. Boozer needs whatever team that Doesnt get Bosh(Texas) Amare(Ny or NJ or Miami) Lee (Bulls or Bucks or Heat) to offer him good money and chance to win...Point blank this summer will be Massive for Bball...It could save the NBa w/ the CBa running out and lock out looming...
Because they could repalce their whole team with one players Massive contact...they cant replace their whole roster which is all leaving but Beasley(being shopped for scrubs) Cook( not a real piece I'd say and Jones's contract and carcus on board for 1 more season...oh and Chalmers who lost his spot to the guy that lost his spot to Arroyo...They'd get a Starting Pg that averaged 15 or 18 in his starts before injury and Holiday revelation...Starting C w/1 year left on deal that just so happens to be a Haitian Icon in the biggest Haitian market in the league...and Power Forward former florida prospect in Speights..add a top ten pick for SG/SF or Big man and you've saved money and rebuilt a team in time to trade Beasley and sign Free Agents without Wade holding Team hostage...there is a reason he didn't sign Extension...he knows there is no team after this year...why sign to play one other star when that signing will in fact make you worse for future...you could get whole rotation and still get stars like Johnson and Lee to lead you into the next year where Dalemberts money gets you Melo...and you sign Sammy for MLE and reap the rewards...a team of L.Will.JJ/Melo/Lee/Speights/Dalembert/Aminu?? and others...wow you cant see the bigger picture...
why would anyone come to milwaukee ??
Joe Johnson may NEED the Bulls but the Bulls don't need him. He commands the ball in his hands to much, I don't think him and Rose would mesh well. That is not the best bball move the Bulls could make.
I think the best move they could make would be to try and sign Ray Allen to a smaller contract. Him and Rose would be a perfect fit. If James Anderson falls to them, I say take him and he can come off the bench until Allen is gone. He could be a very valuable 6th man to provide scoring.
LeBron, Wade, and Bosh are not coming here so they should go after Boozer. Noah, Boozer, Taj, and Richard would be a nice frontline and Boozer adds that low post scoring that they desperately need. If Anderson is gone then they should draft Sanders to add to that frontline.
Allen/ Anderson or sign Pargo back if Anderson is gone.
Noah/ Richard/ or Sanders
I like that team.
Plus, they could get rid of Deng, Hinrich, and Allen next year and go after Melo.
It is only a dream, but possible.
PG - Baron Davis
SG - Eric Gordon
SF - Joe Johnson (fa) or Rudy Gay (rfa)
PF - Blake Griffen
C - Chris Kaman
Nba draft selection: Wesley Johnson or Al Farouq Aminu.
PG - Derrick Rose
SG - Kirk Hinrich
SF - Luol Deng
PF - Chris Bosh (fa) or Boozer (fa) or Amare (fa)
C - Joakim Noah
Nba draft selection: Sg James anderson or Paul george.
alot of options for the bulls with either getting a SG in free agency or a PF.
Look, the Nets can actually get Lebron and Bosh or whoever--but the FA's former teams (along with the FAs) would want to do a sign and trade.
Also the Nets will have a lot, and i mean, a lot more money to spend on other free agents if they were to do a sign and trade.
Sign and trades and nets player movement --->
>Devin Harris (-9 million) and Warriors 2011 first round pick to the Cavs for Lebron
>Yi Jianlian (-4 million) to the Raptors for Chris Bosh.
>Release or trade CDR (-1 million)--most likely is traded to/or signs with Memphis.
>Kris Humphries also will most likely not exercise his Player Option giving the Nets (-3 million) even more off the books.
These moves would also free up more money for the Nets actually (17million!!!!!! more $$$ for other FAs!!).
So the Nets could get couple medium priced FAs or even a third upper tier FA (but only if they delayed on signing their top 4 draft pick of this year until mid summer-- its about 5 mil against the Nets as soon as they sign him).
Heres the (fiscally possible yet very unlikely) dream lineup with this scenario:
John Wall, Terrence Williams
Dwyane Wade, Courtney Lee
Lebron James, Stanley Robinson
Chris Bosh, Craig Smith
Brook Lopez, Solomon Alabi
They have absolutely horrible 3 point shooters accept for Lee and Lebron but they would be out running everyone anyway so 3 point shooting wouldn't really matter.
Here is a more realistic (and my more preferred) dream lineup:
John Wall, Luke Ridnour
Ray Allen, Courtney Lee
Lebron James, Terrence Williams, Stanley Robinson
Chris Bosh, Kevin Seraphin
Brook Lopez, Shaquille O'neal
Better outside shooting and another point guard option off the bench so Terrence Williams can play wing. Also this would keep the Nets a few bucks under the cap (if they can get Ridnour, Ray Allen and Shaq for around 5 million each) and some flexibility for 2011 if for some ungodly reason they didn't win the championship--but they would.
And here is a much more realistic yet still very very good team:
John Wall, Luke Ridnour
Ray Allen, Courtney Lee
Rudy Gay, Terrence Williams
Chris Bosh, Kevin Seraphin
Brook Lopez, Solomon Alabi
this team would be about a million times less dominant defensively but offensively they would be a top 5 team in the league and still a top 10 defensive team in the league.
wow... not a SINGLE person mentions OKC... they have by far the BEST long term future out of any team with cap space...
and many feel the gods will curse them...I mean if Green wants big $ and walks or Durant breaks one of them skinny ass legs ala livingston where are they back the bottom...Westbrook would become their version of Ellis w/Warriors...but than can sign Lee or Boozer when July 1st hits...
I think JJ Redick should go to Sacramento. (As a Duke+Kings fan). But I also think it'd be a good fit and a chance for him to get consistent minutes.
I think David Lee should go to Golden State. Up-tempo style of play, chance to play with some good perimeter players. They have some $$ to spend but not a lot so it might not work in money terms.
I think Chris Bosh should go to Houston. I don't see him going anywhere where he wont be the face of the franchise and he would make Houston a solid playoff team.
I think Amare Stoudemire should go to NY. And he should bring Joe Johnson with him. Why? I dont know. They have to go somewhere.
I think Wade should go to Chicago. Rose-Wade. Not a lot of 3's but it'd be pretty fun to watch.
I think LeBron should stay in Cleveland.
I think Rudy Gay and Boozer should go to NJ/Brooklyn.

Scarecrow I understand what your saying, but with all due honesty, I think your high as a kite if you think Miami would trade D-Wade to the Sixers for Holliday and some role players or aging vets.
I'm not sure what qualifying offers are but i think it means chicago can match anybody on a contract offer.
The bulls will pick up all team options on james johnson, taj, and rose. trust me.
PG- Derrick Rose / ?????
SG- ????? / ?????
SF- ????? / James Johnson
PF- ????? / Taj Gibson
C- Joahkim Noah / Omer Asik
Deng and Hinrich are on the trading block.
Thats where the bulls are at right now. The contracts there are only worth 11.5 million plus Omer Asik who is coming from overseas. The cap is 56.1 million. Thats 44.6 million to spend. Maybe 43 million after the rookie and Omer gets signed. Its enough for two big time free agents plus some role players. They have 17th pick.
With that pick they could go after orton,sanders, udoh, henry, anderson, or whiteside. They could use help at SG or at center in the draft. I dont like taking a small forward here and having johnson and the rookie split the time at small forward. I would like the pick to backup SG or C and sign a vet SF or keep deng.
Hinrich makes 9 mil this season and 8 mil the next. we wont be able to sign him after that with rose and noah needing to get paid. its time to get rid of him now before he leaves for free. Deng has not had a healthy season in three years and thats why i want to get rid of him. I like his talent and potential plus hes is only 25. but he missed 12 games this year and it was a healthy year for him. He is making 11.3 mil a season and it goes up a mil a season for the next four years. We can spend that money on somebody who will play.
the nets only have money for one max player and the knicks and the bulls only one with legit shot for two of them
The lake show is going to land Bosh in a sign and trade for either bynum or gasol
Most likely bynum and sasha
