Jul 07th 2014

      Why you assuming LeBron returns if Bosh bounces tho?
Jul 07th 2014

           Yeah pretty sure if Bosh is gone LeBron is DEF not staying in MIA

Jul 07th 2014

      Parsons cap hold is irrelevant.....dude wants to get PAID!
Jul 07th 2014
142
           it's not irrelevant in the context of this conversation.
Jul 07th 2014

           I feel like if Parsons leaves he goes to a Coast City
Jul 07th 2014

I have a feeling Lin will be gone regardless

Bosh makes A LOT more sense than Melo for Houston. I believe that move would put them over the top (that and if Harden starts playing some semblance of defense AND Kevin Mac is shown the door...)

He and Howard would be a nice high/low, big-exchange type of tandem. Melo is obviously the better player but with him and Harden on the floor together they would need not two but three basketballs, all of which would stop with regularity.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

4. "Mirotic gonna come through and crush the buildings?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Nikola Mirotic has reached a buyout with Real Madrid, and the Bulls are now reportedly working out a contract to sign him.
If Mirotic comes to Chicago, the Bulls will need to make room for his salary. Chicago currently only has a mid-level exception to offer, but if they chose to amnesty Carlos Boozer, they will have more at their disposal. However, the additional cap room gained from amnestying Boozer was thought to be reserved for Carmelo Anthony, so this report could be suggesting that Chicago believes Carmelo will be re-signing with the Knicks.

The reports on Niko's recent championship games don't look good...Dude got benched by his coach (they say he was battling injuries...but...yeah...)

And I don't like the fact that we are signing an unproven player beyond the mid-level (that was the appeal for dude...buy him out and sign him on the cheap...)...

I hope the Bulls will use Niko for trade bait....Because this doesn't solve our need for proven NBA scorers...This kid would be great as a bench player if we had Melo or Love. But as is, this ain't looking good for us...

Hope Gar/Pax got something else up their sleeves....

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

>injuries...but...yeah...)

I read that him and the coach were bumping heads, and that's why he didn't get as much tick. I think his numbers were low case the coach sat him. Granted I've been labeled the Mirotic supporter here, so...

I'd honestly like to see what he could do. We don't know his ceiling, but his skill set is something we could definitely use off the bench. Outside of this last championship game, he's been dominant in Europe on one of the best squads.

13. "RE: I read different. "
In response to Reply # 11


          



What I read was Niko was struggling with a foot and hand injuries. He got sat down in one of the championship games...And got sat down again...The kid got into a screaming match with the coach...Coach told him to get out of his face and get some work done for his injuries..And his team STILL won...

I also read that the team is completely divided on the kid...Half supported the benching and the other half thinks he's being treated unfairly...

All that said, the Bulls need to turn the page on Melo. If they can use Niko in a trade to get Love, do it...(that wait until 30 days rule to trade Niko will hurt the Bulls..)

But if that doesn't work we have to go after crazy ass Lance (I've been against this one from the jump...But we have to do something to get a second creator to take pressure off Rose....)

We sign Lance (again, a move I've been against) and amnesty Boozer and get a REAL back up center and re-sign DJ....

And go from there (and hope Bron hops out of Miami)....

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

Stretch 4 rotation player with a little bit of potential left in the tank (and the Toronto Tax).

It's probably worth overpaying by a million to establish Toronto as a place where people want to stay.

I'd love for them to find a way to grab a legit PF (maybe using Amir's non-guaranteed deal (I'm not wild about Amir as a starting 4 unless Jonas steps up) and a pick or something) but a nice offseason for the Raptors so far.

14. "Derrick Rose didn't recruit Melo @ Meeting"

First, I must say... LMAO @ this entire story.

Secondly, GOOD. He made it be known to Melo that he wanted to play with Melo months ago. DONE. Fuck this dog and pony shit.

Sources: Derrick Rose didn't recruit
Updated: July 4, 2014, 2:01 PM ET
By Chris Broussard | ESPN.com

It turns out that Derrick Rose was not a part of the Chicago Bulls' pitch to Carmelo Anthony, after all.

Rose, Chicago's star point guard, just happened to be in the middle of his daily workout routine when Bulls officials brought Anthony into the United Center on Tuesday afternoon, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Rose actually was surprised to see Anthony, one source said. He had no idea what time the Knicks' free agent would be visiting the Bulls.


Derrick Rose just happened to be at the United Center when Carmelo Anthony visited Tuesday and wasn't part of the team's official presentation to the free agent, sources told ESPN.com.

Rose broke up his workout to approach Anthony and said a brief hello, but that was the extent of his participation in the Bulls' recruitment.

Chicago took Anthony through a prepared recruitment presentation for Anthony, and Rose's impression was that teammates Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson were officially part of it, sources said.

But the Bulls' front office never asked Rose to join in.

"Derrick wasn't bothered that he wasn't a part of it," a source said. "He was just kind of shocked, like 'Man, I didn't get the memo.'"

Rose had stated earlier in the week to Yahoo! that he would not be involved in the recruitment of Anthony, so it seemed stunning when reports came out that he did indeed participate in the Bulls' presentation.

But there was no about-face on Rose's part, just perhaps a timely visit with Anthony to the arena set up by Bulls' officials.

"Derrick was just working out, shooting jumpers, going through his normal routine," a source said. "He didn't even know what time Melo was coming."

Rose, who works out daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the United Center, did not attend a Tuesday night dinner the Bulls had with Anthony.

Despite his public stance against recruiting, sources close to Rose said he would have indeed taken part in the Bulls' presentation if he had been asked to by members of the front office.

They have such little faith in dude at this point that he's not even
part of the pitch

Notice that Kobe flew in from FAMILY VACATION to meet with
Carmelo

That means the Lakers think more of an old hobbly Kobe than
the Bulls do of D. Rose

The rest is just Broussard hearsay.

"Rose had told Yahoo! Sports earlier in the week that he would not be involved in the recruitment of Anthony"

Nothing else matters. He didn't feel the need to be there. He wasn't there. Non story.

He's already on record saying that he would love to have Melo on the team. Nothing more needs to be done. The Bulls system under Thibs and their core group should be enough to lure in any top free agent if they are serious about winning.

and instead had the presentation when Derrick works out on the sly to quell any doubts Melo might have about Rose's health.

"Over here are the championship trophies, down this way is the state of the art locker room and...well, looky here, D-Rose is on the court dunking. Everyone say 'Hi'. Derrick, come say hello to Mr. Anthony."

You gotta be more positive O_E lol

Kobe leaving a family vacation to recruit a guy he's supposedly friends with seems a little 'desperate' to me.

Cali, movies, Fine Beach Bitches, nice weather, $$$ and Championships. It's the Lakers fam. Sells itself. Fuck he needs to leave Europe for when he already got 5 rings?

A text of 5 Larry OB trophies with a + You = 6 is all he had to do...

from EUROPE.

U do know this is a Chris Broussard special, right?

And you do know that Rose usually works out at Berto, but just so happened to be working out at UC at the same time the city was shut down during Melo's visit (with big ass images of Melo in a Bulls uniform right outside the building)....

Yeah...don't believe this bullshit...

It's Broussard....

Nah...Kobe will go down as a champion; one of the greats. But he will also go down as a weirdo, me-first, asshole/snitch of a player who actually quit on his team...People can say what they want about Rose...But that kid would scratch and claw to stay out on the court no matter what...That dude stands up for his teammates...No matter how terrible they r (see Keith Bogans...lol)...

As is, this kid doesn't need to worry about Broussard just making up shit...Just try to stay healthy...

In response to Reply # 35


  

          

El (Essence) emailed Sam Smith about it who pretty much said that dude quit in order to send a message to Doug Collins. He flat out quit on his team but of course you (and most everyone else) don't seem to recall that...Wilt also has a similar playoff game where he basically quit. One game doesn't define a player...if so, MJ and Wilt would be labeled as quitters too but they aren't...yet you only wanna apply that standard to Kobe huh. I wonder why.

Sam Smith? That ass? lol...Nah...

Oh...u mean the game where he was continually pounded (again) by the Bad Boys? The same game where both I. Thomas and Joe Dumars were benched for much of the 4th, and yet still beat the Bulls? The same game Laimbeer sat for the fourth? The same game Doug Collins asked Jordan to involve his teammates more that game because in his mind they would have a better chance to win?

Listen...chill with involving Jordan in Kobe's embarrassing, me-first bullshit...Kobe is on his own island...Oh...And here is an original write up on that game that really explains what happened....

-----

Working More Magic, Jordan Disappears as Bulls Lose to Pistons
June 01, 1989|MIKE DOWNEY | Times Staff Writer

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Yes, almost anybody might have expected the Detroit Pistons to be successful Wednesday night on their home court, to take a 3-2 advantage over the Chicago Bulls in their ferocious match to see who fights the Lakers for the National Basketball Assn. championship.

Yes, somebody might have even foreseen Vinnie (Microwave) Johnson coming off the bench to score 16 of his 22 points for Detroit in the fourth quarter, breaking open a close game.

However, could anybody have anticipated, before Detroit's 94-85 victory over Chicago in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, that:

--Chicago's Michael Jordan would take only eight shots in 46 minutes?

--Craig Hodges would lead Chicago in shots and points?

--Bill Laimbeer would be benched by Detroit the entire fourth quarter?

--Detroit's Isiah Thomas and Mark Aguirre would be benched almost the entire fourth quarter?

--Detroit's starting five would combine in the fourth quarter for three points?

--Brad Sellers would play 22 minutes for Chicago after not playing in the past three games--and take one less shot than Jordan?

No wonder it was suggested that the Bulls turned Jordan into a $2.5-million-a-year decoy.

"That's a pretty crass thing to say," Jordan's coach, Doug Collins, snapped back. "That's a pretty big shot to take at us.

"Michael scores 46 points, and people say he's not sharing enough of the offense. Now he takes eight shots and you tell him he's the highest-priced decoy in the game.

"Is that fair?"

Jordan sure didn't think so.

He made a conscious effort, he said, to involve his teammates in the offense, what with the Pistons putting everybody but their trainer on him when he touched the ball.

"Why should I take the shots if they're double-teaming me, triple-teaming me, sometimes even putting four guys on me?" Jordan asked. "Didn't we still get good shots?"

Yes, Michael.

"Well, did we hit 'em?"

No, Michael.

"That's the whole story," Jordan said. "We gotta hit 'em."

Held to 18 points--10 on free throws--Jordan was virtually no scoring factor in the game, although he did account for more than half (nine) of Chicago's assists.

Detroit's defense just keeps wearing Air Jordan and the Jordanaires down, bit by bit. The Bulls got only 80 points in Game 4. This time they got only 85, and were outshot by the Pistons by a ridiculously lopsided 80-59--the 59 shots an all-time playoff low by any NBA team.

Meantime, no team has scored 100 points against the Pistons in the 1989 playoffs, in a dozen games.

"Are they wearing us down? Yes," Collins said, answering his own question. "Are we tired? Probably. Is Michael tired? Probably. That's why I tried to use some new people. Detroit just keeps throwing fresh bodies at us. These guys leave Laimbeer, Isiah and Aguirre on the bench and don't even miss them."

If there is more than one reason Jordan's tongue is hanging so far out these days, it might be because the Bulls battled five long nights against Cleveland and six against the Knicks, while the Pistons breezed through Boston and Milwaukee in eight straight.

Even so, Chicago gave a good account of itself Wednesday for a while, in front of a crowd of 21,454 at the Palace, where the Pistons have won 27 of their last 28.

The Bulls must win here Sunday to get a shot at the Lakers and their first NBA title, but first, there's a little matter of Game 6 Friday night at Chicago Stadium.

They led, 31-21, early in the second quarter before running out of gas. Jordan advised his teammates on the bus ride to the arena that they would have to step up and be heard from, since Detroit obviously intended to throw the kitchen sink at him on defense.

Bill Cartwright answered the call, supplying 10 points and 10 rebounds by halftime.

The Pistons whittled away, with their top four reserves getting as much playing time or more than the starters--excluding Joe Dumars, whose principal job is guarding Jordan. Although they trailed, 45-41, at halftime, the Pistons opened the third quarter with a 12-2 run and never trailed again.

The minute one guy cooled off, someone else got hot. Aguirre and Thomas, for example, scored Detroit's last 18 points of the first half--but sat out the final 10 minutes 50 seconds of the game, even though neither player was hurt or in foul trouble.

Vinnie Johnson refused to re-take his seat, firing in jumper after jumper. Someone asked him later how it felt to be on fire, and he said: "On fire? I wasn't on fire. At least I don't think I was on fire."

John Salley begged to differ.

"Vinnie was so hot, I'm thinking of doing a video with just Vinnie and a bunch of fire in the background," Salley said.

Said Jordan, "That's why they call him the Microwave."

Chicago was as cold as the city.

In the Lakers-Suns series, the reason we were up in the series was due to pounding them inside and slowing the game down. Kobe went off in the 2nd quarter of the game 7 yet still down double-digits, and then came out in the 2nd half to try and get the post involved in order to slow the game down (which PJ explicitly said in the post-game) and doesn't try to shoot the team back into the game (regardless of the fact that he had tried just that in the 2nd quarter with no results)....omg, Kobe quit!

When MJ gets his teammates involved and doesn't shoot over the course of the ENTIRE game, it's only that he's trying to get his teammates involved *shrug*. Funny how context only matters when it suits you. If Kobe quit, then MJ quit, FOH with the double standard. I know the context of each, don't be a hypocrite.

EDIT: Basically, what auragin_boi wrote.

Derrick Rose has never wanted to "recruit" another star. He didn't want to recruit LeBron a few years ago. He doesn't want to do it now. If people want to come, they can come but he's not begging someone to join the Bulls.

The front office knew he wouldn't be a part of it but were probably nervous that 'Melo would take it as a diss that Rose wasn't there so they scheduled the meeting during Rose's workout so they could do a walkby.

So the reports on all sides are true. Rose didn't want to be a part of it and was surprised when 'Melo showed up.

In response to Reply # 25


  

          

I like Derrick but this "im not recruiting stance is fuckin lame.
Even if hes not gonna recruit, dont make it public and try to be Mr. Cool.
Cause while your ass has been out with a bum knee for the past two seasons, the leagues been moving on.

If Lebron, Kobe, Dwight, Harden, and even your own teamate can do some recruiting because they want to win, so can you. Its not begging anyone to play with you--its just how the league is going now.

You can back your teamates (like Bogans) all you want. But how about backing them when theyre trying to get a free agent to come in.


I dont have to believe Broussard's shit, I know Rose has publicly stated he wont recruit--and he's holding to that.

I don't think we'll see a more in depth piece on Derrick vs the new age of NBA recruiting (and it could be a very interesting long form article) until a) the stars sign their deals and b) summer is over and writers are off of the free agent beat/vacations and more NBA players are available for interview.

But it would be very interesting to hear from old players and new guys about what seems to be a new era of recruitment in the NBA.

Three things to remember about Chris Broussard's bizarre Derrick Rose report
By Ricky O'Donnell | @SBN_Ricky on Jul 4 2014, 2:44p

It is the Fourth of July and a beautiful day in Chicago. You should be barbequing or hanging out with friends and family or drinking on a boat. You should not be following the daily stupidity of the Chicago Bulls while doing it. Literally any other activity is a better use of your time right now. That's why I'm going to assume not everyone is up on this latest Chris Broussard report on Derrick Rose's involvement in the Bulls' pitch to Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday. Let's go over what Broussard is reporting:

- Rose was surprised to see Carmelo Anthony at the United Center while he was going through a scheduled workout. "He didn't even know what time Melo was coming," a source told Broussard.
- Contrary to a report by K.C. Johnson that said Rose and Anthony spoke for 15-20 minutes, Broussard is reporting Rose said only a "brief hello" to Melo. He was not part of the Bulls' pitch.
- The Bulls' front office reportedly never even asked Rose to be part of the pitch. "Derrick wasn't bothered that he wasn't a part of it," a source tells Broussard. "He was just kind of shocked, like, 'Man, I didn't get the memo.'"

As with all things Bulls and all things Derrick Rose, the recruitment of Melo was bound to get weird. This is one of the stealthiest organizations in the NBA, one that doesn't leak or reveal even the slightest hints about how they want to build the roster. Rose is introverted and sensitive, and he's watched his character assassinated over the last two seasons at least partially because of something that may have been the team's doing (the report that he was cleared to play on March 1, 2013). These are perfect conditions for a shitstorm, and that appears to be what the Bulls have on their hands right now. At least if you have a certain type of worldview, it can all be seen as kind of hilarious.

I think there are three things to remember here:

1. Who cares if Rose recruits?

Derrick Rose does not give many memorable quotes, but it's hard to forget this one: "I'm rolling with Keith". That would be Keith Bogans, the starting shooting guard for the 2010-11 team that reached the Eastern Conference Finals. Bogans averaged 4.4 points per game in those 82 starts, and Rose didn't seem to think he needed a better player next to him in the backcourt.

Even before the Keith Bogans era, Rose has steadfastly maintained he does not want to recruit additional help to Chicago. He doesn't feel comfortable doing it. I also don't think it's unfair to think there might be a small part of him that always wants to be the biggest star on the team. This is his home city, after all. Let's not forget that Woj once reported Rose wanted the Bulls to sign Joe Johnson and Boozer when they were pitching LeBron, Wade and Bosh in 2010.

This gets many fans worked up, but it doesn't really bother me for one reason: Derrick Rose would be a terrible recruiter. Rose was once a great basketball player and hopefully still will be going forward, but just because you're the best player on the team doesn't mean you have to also be the best saleman. Rose is a very private person who has had a lot of life experiences that have led him to become that way. He is probably a little bit too far inside of his head. He is the exact opposite of someone who you want recruiting talent to this team.

You want a recruiter who is outgoing and expressive and passionate about what it's like to play for this city, this team, this coach. You want Joakim Noah. Noah was part of the Bulls' recruitment of Melo and even made the trip out to L.A. yesterday to hang with Pau Gasol. Noah is the perfect recruiter. He's two-time All-Star in his own right and someone who makes the game easier for everyone else on the court. Good players want to play with him.

Which is to say: I don't care about D. Rose not wanting to recruit, because I'd much rather have Noah doing it.

2. What side is this coming from?

This is what's really bizarre. There have been three distinct reports to come out about Rose's involvement in the recruiting pitch to Melo:

- Alex Kennedy reported Rose put on a private workout for Melo to show he was healthy.
- K.C. Johnson reported the workout was incidental and that Rose and Melo spoke for 15-20 minutes.
- Broussard is now reporting Rose didn't even know Melo was going to be in the building while he was there.

All of this is coming from different people, you would have to think. Kennedy didn't make up what he heard, someone told it to him. Same goes for K.C. and Broussard. As K.C. said:

@KCJHoop
The @Chris_Broussard report DRose was shocked to see Melo speaks to disconnect somewhere. Bulls under impression Rose small part of pitch.
1:26 PM - 4 Jul 2014


My guess is this latest Broussard report is coming from someone in the organization who is sick of Rose's shit, whether fairly or not. There is enough evidence to suggest maybe the Bulls are not always approving of Rose's behavior. Even if Gar Forman, John Paxson and Jerry Reinsdorf are all publicly supportive of Rose, let's remember that there are a lot of different people in the front office.

Is there also a chance this was coming from Rose's people? I think so. This quote would seem to suggest it: "Derrick wasn't bothered that he wasn't a part of it," a source tells Broussard. "He was just kind of shocked, like, 'Man, I didn't get the memo.'"

So, why bring this up to an ESPN reporter? Maybe Rose doesn't want Melo. Remember, there was a report that he preferred Kevin Love. But even beyond that, it's likelier (in the unlikely event that this is coming from Rose's side) Rose is just sort of fed up with the organization.

3. It's Broussard

This should go without saying. There is nothing to like about Chris Broussard. He will be late on every report, and frame it with SOURCES: even after the direct source has announced it. He once went on ESPN and said LeBron signing with the Bulls was a done deal. He called being gay "an open rebellion to god". He's a complete idiot, and I don't feel bad saying it.

What Broussard is reporting is different than what K.C. reported. We should believe K.C., yes? The problem here is that someone still told Broussard this shit. He isn't making it up.

It all goes back to just how bizarre both the organization and Rose can be. I don't know what to make of it because every argument seems at least somewhat plausible. These are the Chicago Bulls, and they are socially inept weirdos.

Please go enjoy your Fourth of July.

Tribune story refutes ESPN report whether Rose was or wasn't involved in Melo's Chicago visit. I'll side with K.C.

Derrick Rose part of pitch to Carmelo Anthony from the start
Bulls had requested for point guard to participate weeks ago

By K.C. Johnson, Chicago Tribune reporter
8:39 p.m. CDT, July 4, 2014

The Bulls and Derrick Rose agree on this: Both would love to add Carmelo Anthony. And the quicker Rose's headlines are basketball-related, the better for all.

After two seasons dominated by knee injuries, Rose found himself back in the news Friday. ESPN.com reported that the front office hadn't asked Rose to attend Tuesday's free-agent pitch to Anthony and that a surprised Rose stopped his workout to briefly say hello when he saw Anthony touring the United Center.

In fact, sources said Bulls officials requested weeks ago for Rose to participate in the pitch should they get an audience with Anthony once free agency began. When official contact was allowed late Monday and details of Anthony's Chicago visit were finalized, sources said they were communicated to Rose.

The Tribune reported in Wednesday's editions that Rose came to the United Center for a previously scheduled workout and rehabilitation session, talked to Anthony for roughly 20 minutes inside the locker room and did not attend a dinner held for Anthony.

Rose is uncomfortable in the role of recruiting and has made public this stance many times, as recently as Sunday in an interview with Yahoo Sports. The Tribune reported on draft night that Rose's camp had made clear to Anthony's camp he would welcome the All-Star forward's addition.

To Rose, that was as important as whatever he felt comfortable contributing Tuesday.

Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah also participated in the pitch to Anthony. Those players attended the dinner, which also included Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, President Michael Reinsdorf, Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, general manager Gar Forman and executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson.

Free agent Spencer Hawes has reached agreement on a four-year, $23M deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources tell Yahoo.

(At least, I'm pretty sure that's the full MLE)

Can't imagine Hawes will ruffle too many feathers. Maybe JJ will be upset about his pro-life stance but they'll get by.

He's not a max guy if you ask me, but Houston, Dallas and, sadly, the Lakers would probably do that.

55. "I disagree completely. "
In response to Reply # 50


  

          

He's worth good money, but not max money. His numbers would definitely go up in a different team, but I buy him as a secondary player, and he makes a great #3 man. He's perfect for Houston because they already have two big dogs on the team and he gives them a big to take pressure off of Dwight inside.

He also doesn't need to rebound much, and that's not exactly his strength anyways and that's something I *personally* expect out of a max player at the 4, unless he's an overwhelming offensive presence like Dirk.

That said, I like Bosh in certain situations and while you can argue him as a "max" guy, I don't view him as *the* guy you build a team around, but rather a good complimentary guy to put around *the* guy and possibly another guy. If it takes paying max money to bring in a guy like him to put you over, so be it. I'd pay it. I certainly wouldn't pay him to be the guy I rebuild around while my other star is on decline at best and possibly finished at worst.

So as far as the Lakers, I'd pay 15 mil for Bosh if I could also manage snatch up Lance and Ariza/Deng, but not for max money. If you think it's a good idea for the Lakers to spend that kind of money on Bosh, well...

In response to Reply # 59


  

          

1) he was one of the better rebounders in the league his last years in toronto.
2) you're not going to see better available in free agency in the near future.
3) even in his much-disparaged miami form, he's not so different from a bigger melo that you already offered max to.

iif you don't want him fine, but don't say you want him on a discount. why the fuck would he take a discount to lose with the lakers and have people like you shit on him? kobe didn't take a discount.

I agree...

And actually he would go back to being a 20/10 guy...It's obvious to anyone who really watches how Bosh is being used by the Heat that he doesn't even get many specific plays called his way...

I think the whole "Posh Bosh" meme has allowed folks to lose perspective on just how good he was. To me a max player leads his team to playoffs. That's what Bosh did for Toronto during his time there...And this was when the East wasn't as pathetic as it is today...

In response to Reply # 68


  

          

If Lebron leaves the Heat then their reign is over and now the East is a two way fight between Pacers and Bulls. I like Indiana's chances if everyone returns in this scenario.

This should all sort itself out on July 10th.

hibbert disappears, hill is a platoon guard, lance is gone? and a locker room issue?, everyone else is old or insignificant or ian mahinmi.

unless he's confident west can get his kobe/duncan on but even healthier he should be aggressive in re-tooling.

the reason all the power forwards they do have don't work (because really, they're not that bad) is because they want them to be better rebounders and rim protectors. well, fuck it, go all in at get a rebounder and rim protector.

just as important if not more. true, you can mitigate some of that with scheme and effort but still.

defensively i'd be looking to pair cuz with someone more mobile than roy, even at the cost of some rim protection. that just seems like a disaster waiting to happen with today's P+R heavy sets.

72. "Farmar: Clipper"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Jordan Farmar and the Clippers have agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract, with the second season a player option.
L.A. lost Darren Collison in free agency and they did well to land a quality backup PG with their bi-annual exception. Farmar should take over most of Collison's 26 minutes per game. Although he played well for the Lakers last season, injuries limited Farmar to just 41 games played -- fantasy owners should view him as little more than a low-end source of 3-pointers and assists while Chris Paul is healthy.

And then Bryce Alford once he leaves school.

Jokes aside, a pretty nice signing for the price, considering that CP3 tends to miss 15 games a year and Farmar should be able to run the offense.

He's playing in LA, Miami, Houston, or Phoenix before returning to Cleveland. At this point that is the best move for him as far as winning a chip sooner than Cleveland.

Players 4-12 or whatever rotation they run are fully capable of besting another team's players. They should be straight for years to come. It took Portland a minute to turn it around but they did. As long as one team isn't dominating every year your squad has a strong chance to improve. A Pacers team without Lance or Hibbert and a Bulls team without Rose or Melo is beatable, in my opinion. That's what you're looking at if one of the big three leaves Miami.

89. "Philly isn't an 8 seed, their 2 lottery '14 picks won't play next season"
In response to Reply # 83


  

          

They will be one of the five worst teams in the league next year, add another Top 5 pick in the 2015 draft, then bring that player plus Embiid the following year in 2015/16.

That team will make the playoffs, bring Saric over that summer and possibly add some key free agents if they feel close enough to go without sacrificing their future in 2016/2017.

That's the deal.

They are actively trying not to make the playoffs next season, in fact if they do they lose a first-rounder from the awful Moultrie trade with Miami made by the prior regime.

If they miss the playoffs again the pick becomes a second rounder in the following year's draft which will be nearly worthless.

They will not be sniffing an eight seed even in the East.

move. I wouldn't be mad if James went back to Cleveland (my biggest gripe would be facing that team in my Bulls' division...But fuck it...Let's go...)...And the fact that dude's agent is talking to the Cleveland brass again cannot be diminished...James wouldn't even take Gilbert's phone call just months ago (it took Big Z's retirement to get them together in the same builiding)....

Still low odds on this happening, but people would rally around this move....The Cavs would become the team to root for everyday NBA fans.

Cavs believe James is open to pitch
Updated: July 7, 2014, 8:43 AM ET
By Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein | ESPN.com



After more than two years of planning, the Cleveland Cavaliers believe they have LeBron James legitimately listening to their pitch to leave the Miami Heat and return to his home state in free agency, according to sources close to the process.

There has yet to be a firm indication that James actually is ready to leave Miami after four years and two championships with the Heat, but sources told ESPN.com that the four-time MVP is increasingly considering the Cavaliers as an option as he moves into the final stages of deciding which team to sign his next contract with.

James is becoming more interested in the Cavs' free-agency pitch, according to sources. However, James will meet with Heat president Pat Riley sometime this week to receive Riley's plan for the Heat's future.

A critical face-to-face meeting looms with Heat president Pat Riley on a day to be determined this week, sources confirmed Sunday night, so that James can hear the Hall of Famer's plans for the Heat's roster. But James' agent, Rich Paul, has already sat down with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert in what is regarded as the first formal step toward trying to shrink the gulf between James and Gilbert after the ocean of hard feelings stemming from James' departure from Cleveland in 2010 to sign with the Heat.

Sources say that the Cavs' pitch made to Paul last week -- which they also hope to make this week to James in their own face-to-face meeting -- revolves around Kyrie Irving and the other young prospects they have, in addition to the numerous options Cleveland possesses to add to the roster over the next year.

It is the second part of this pitch the Cavs hope will be the key selling point in getting James to choose them. While several teams like the Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets have cap space to make moves this summer, the Cavs hope to show James how they have collected and created tools to continue adding into the next few years.

The Cavs also believe they have made the greatest move yet this summer, convincing Irving to sign a five-year maximum contract extension in the first few hours of free agency. With No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins under control for the next five seasons as well, the Cavs are pitching youth and roster stability to James, who played on one of the oldest teams in the league last season.

The team also potentially owns three first-round picks in the 2015 draft, including the Heat's pick if they fall outside the top 10. They also have the Memphis Grizzlies' pick if it falls between Nos. 6 and 14 and their own pick. The Cavs believe they can use these as assets in potential trades to further upgrade the roster if James will come aboard.

The Cavs also made an unheralded trade late on draft night that has potential to become valuable next year, an aspect they intend to explain to James: as part of a draft-pick swap, the Cavs traded Alonzo Gee for Brendan Haywood in a deal that will be announced after July 10.


In addition to having size the Cavs need, Haywood has an unorthodox contract created when he was waived via the amnesty clause by the Dallas Mavericks. Haywood will be on the Cavs' books for $2.2 million this season but has a $10.5 million deal for the following season that isn't guaranteed until Aug. 1, 2015. This is one of the most unique contracts in the league, and the Cavs could use it in a straight trade or a sign-and-trade to add a major free agent next summer, even though they aren't positioned to have cap space.

The Cavs still have several hurdles to overcome. Rival teams are skeptical that James and Gilbert will be able to patch up their differences in the wake of James' televised "announcement" and Gilbert's subsequent open letter that attacked James' character and got him fined by then-commissioner David Stern. There has been a cooling of the tension between the parties in recent years, but James still harbors some ill feelings that both would have to attempt to settle before any partnership could be renewed, sources said.

On a more basic level, the Cavs currently don't have the cap space to sign James to the $20.7 million maximum contract he is looking for. They have some players on non-guaranteed deals they could waive but will want to keep Anderson Varejao, who has a partially guaranteed deal and is the lone holdover on the team from James' years in Cleveland.

The easiest way to get near the needed space would be to offload the $6.3 million salary of guard Jarrett Jack, and the Cavs have been in trade talks involving Jack for several weeks, sources told ESPN.com.

at all... simple reason is East vs West... getting to the finals is so much easier in the East...

Kyrie is as good as anyone on Phoenix or LA and Clevelands biggest weakness is it's front line, which is equally weak in Phoenix and LA

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

in the past...the Lakers are very rarely in play for a lot of free agents...and these guys just seem to get so much wrong BEFORE it happens that it's really only worth your time to analyze stuff after it happens..

at least with say political pundits they are analyzing what groups of people are going to do...based upon polls and such... So I guess you have some data to analyze to suggest what might happen..

but with guessing where free agents are going to sign.... You're trying to figure out what ONE GUY is going to do...

a lot of these guys seem to be just trying to throw shit up against a wall and act like they got some inside info...

players don't always pick where the money is...they don't always pick where the team has the best chance to win right away.... they don't always go to team up with a particular player or coach....they don't always go back to their hometown to play or play in the city where they live in the offseason..

there are numerous examples of guys who ended up some place that didn't not fit at least some of those categories..

it's all conjecture....

Stephen A just threw some shit out there about Bosh being the key free agent, and everyone is waiting on what he's gonna do...lol.. But I mean why not...nobody else sayin that shit so Stephen A got to find an angle..

the other chubby dude on there is making the same fukkin comment about how money is the only thing these guys are taking into consideration..

don't nobody know what the hell they are talking about....

and won't until the player makes his wishes known....

shit is funny...

but there are some guys who are going to look real fukkin stupid if the shit don't go the way they been saying it's gonna go... muhfukkas gonna look like the Karl Rove of the NBA...

dude said this morning when Greeny asked him about Dan Gilbert's plane flying to Miami. "yes, that happened...don't know who was on the plane, but it happened...everything else...I have NO idea. I'm not reporting anything until I know for certain and right now I simply do not know what Lebron is gonna do". Supposedly this dude knows Lebron better than any other media person out there.

Of course the Heat would leak that out....Would anyone expect anything differently? lol...

The crazy part is Bosh may be the one that has the last word on this...If he bolts for Houston (which could def. happen) Bron is out.

they can flip lin -- they've already got a philly deal on deck -- sign bosh outright, and then re-up chandler afterward. as long as he hasn't signed a sheet with another team yet, his cap hold is still miniscule.

daryl knows what he's doing.

I could see him ending up w/ the Mavs for around 10mill if they can't land Melo.

it means they have the room to offer bosh a max. they can pay chandler whatever they want after that, he's their own free agent.

they're just hoping he doesn't sign an offer sheet w/ another team before they get this bosh thing settled, that would tie up their cap space for 3 days.

he wants to get paid but he can also make as much if not more from endorsement shit.

Dallas offers a similar market in that regard with less youth and upside. Id be surprised if he chooses Dallas unless its a huge overpay max type deal.

In response to Reply # 111


  

          

The Heat are better off going after McRoberts as RuPaul's replacement for 1/3rd the price & filling out their roster w/ decent role players (Ariza/Born Ready/Deng/Stuckey/Jameer/Marion/Vince/Emeka/Jason Smith/Aminu/Ekpe/Pierce) rather than matching that offer.

To preserve the cap hold, they could even put their trade exception to use & propose a sign-&-trade for Parsons/T-Jones (assuming Parsons isn't asking for anything north of 10mill per) since that would most likely be necessary for Bosh to sign w/ the Rockets.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

Bron would be looking at what u r talking about like, "Nah...I'm good..."

Parsons plays the same position as Bron, and in a much more perimeter manner. We not talking about a dude that can bang at the PF position (and play center from time to time like Bosh did)...

Nah...Melo would be just about the only player that would keep Bron in town. And as Dula has said, Miami would be unable to build a complete team financially giving both of those dudes the ultra MAX.

The smart money for Bron would be to either sign a one year deal with Miami and convince Bosh to do the same) OR....

Sign with Cleveland who has a youth movement AND cap space AND picks for the future...

Like I said...I get that Bosh has been a dude we can all joke about. But the dude sacrificed his game A LOT in Miami.

He should jump at that Houston deal and don't look back...

I said replace Bosh w/ McRoberts then get Parsons via a sign & trade basically replace Rashard/Bosh (their front-line during the 2014 ECF/Finals) w/ Parsons/McRoberts. If they want to go BIG then bring Parsons off the bench & start T-Jones. Use the left over money to add depth at all positions.

Basically the could potentially have roster similar to this:

Jameer/Bazz
Wade/Born Ready
Bron/Parson
T-Jones/Rashard
McRoberts/Jason Smith

Throw in Marion/Pierce/Emeka for vet min along w/ Aminu/Ekpe & you have a very versatile/athletic line-up for their pressure defense.

Bron won't be staying for that...And Miami won't be doing Houston any favors. They would rather just tank than get a player (Parsons) who wouldn't be able too reach his full potential playing the same position as James...

HOWEVER. I can def. see Bron re-signing with the Heat for 1 year and then going from there...

But Bron doesn't want to be playing with broken down aging players u r naming. The Spurs won because they were deep...But they were deep with some key players who also happened to be young, which balanced out the oldtimers...

Bron wants to play with either a max guy or another player that is young and a stud...

I think Bron either stays with Miami for 1 year or bolts...

In response to Reply # 111


          



Like I said...Bosh is the key...Bron is just sitting back...Miami would be in a flurry to sign Melo if Bosh leaves (which he should...He has his rings...Now it's about the money AND getting more respect. Remember. He would be the one with the championships. Not Harden/Howard).


The saving grace for Miami is Boshy's wife loves life in Miami...But yeah. Shit is getting nuts...

24 mil per for bosh to play a similar 3rd wheel role?
if houston is working under the assumption they can offer that number, why not aggressively go after melo
anyway, if this is true (with in 10-20 million even) then bosh needs to take it so riles can figure out a way to start talks with melo

cause i'd agree with that
that's a hell of a number if all you want is some one to give you 16-18 every now and then, underachieve on the boards, and improve your help D

edit: nvm houston allegedly already threw this offer out to melo as he was their first choice, but he wasn't interested for whatever reason. bosh is a contingency plan after the rockets fell out of the melo sweepstakes

NAH...its based off the fact that Bosh will finally be able to play his natural position and not go hard on the 3s. What u saw of Bosh in Miami is a player who rarely had plays called for him...

bosh has only begun to chuck threes the last year and a half
as far as his natural position......he's played center the majority of his career in toronto so let's not reach for excuses for his ineffectiveness
i'm not sure bosh is going get more plays drawn up for him in houston, and if he does it's probably going to be as a stretch 4 jacking 3 anyway so.....
ATEOTD the heat would have loved to get 20 and 8 from that dude on a nightly basis. it's not like there weren't opportunities or a need for that. he just wasn't always assertive enough

All these moves could mean two things....Bron has already caught up with Bosh and let him know that they would do more damage together in Miami and ride it out for another year...

Or...

He gone. Bosh gone....And...

If Parsons signs the offer sheet the Rockets can't even sign-&-trade him plus his cap hold would sky rocket to around 10mill.

Nah...they can still sign Bosh straight up...Houston would love for Parsons to stay. But that doesn't hold up the deal considering that Bosh is still a free agent who can go where he wants AND fits Houston's needs...

And there's still the matter of Houston being able to re-sign Parsons for as much money as they want...

But I don't think this stops them from going after Bosh. Cuban is going after Parsons because he's a damn good player (he was always on their radar). Nothing more nothing less...

http://dimemag.com/2014/07/report-melo-torn-knicks-bulls-lakers/

Carmelo Anthony has narrowed his list of possible teams down to three: the Bulls, Lakers and the Knicks. In Frank Isolas most recent piece for the New York Daily News, a friend of Anthonys says hes torn over the choice between the three teams with each offering their own advantages and shortcomings.

Anthony met with Knicks president Phil Jackson and Knicks officials on Thursday and Friday, who Isola reports offered him a maximum contract of five years and $129 million the most any team can pay him. But, Anthony is also said to be debating Chicago and Los Angeles, even though only the Lakers can offer him a maximum contract, though it would only be for four years and $96 million.

Heres Isola:


"Carmelo Anthony is torn over where to spend the prime years of his career, according to a friend of the Knicks All Star forward.

Anthony, 30, is still debating his next move with the Knicks, Lakers and the Bulls as his top three choices, the source claims. Chicago is still in the running despite the fact that the Bulls, barring a sign-and-trade, cannot come close to matching the max deals the Knicks and Lakers offered Anthony last week. However, the Bulls do allow Anthony to stay in the Eastern Conference, play in the large market and join a contending team.

Knicks president Phil Jackson, despite hints to the contrary, offered Anthony a max deal of five years, $129 million. The best the Bulls can do is $75 million over four years. If it was just about taking the most money, Anthony already would have announced his intentions to rejoin the Knicks. But Anthony is intrigued by the Bulls as well as the Lakers, who have the ability to give Anthony a max deal ($96 million) over four years. Anthony also lives in Los Angeles during the off-season and is friends with Kobe Bryant. It is believed that if Anthony were to sign with the Lakers, Pau Gasol would likely re-sign with the purple and gold."


About that max offer Jackson supposedly extended to Anthony on Friday, the Wall Street Journals Chris Herring has a different view of Melo and Phils meeting. A source tells Herring Anthony felt New Yorks max offer was hazy, and he got mixed signals when he spoke to the team on Thursday the day before Jackson, according to Isola, offered him the five-year max:


"According to a person familiar with the situation, Anthony felt as if he got mixed signals from the New York Knicks during his meeting with the team on Thursday. While Anthony and his camp were told that he could have a maximum contract if he wanted it, a source said, team president Phil Jackson continued to preach the virtues of taking less than the maximuma message that left Anthony questioning whether the max offer was sincere."


This could explain why the Lakers became serious contenders for Melo after the meeting, Herring postulates. Phil, as is his custom, has been using Carmelo Anthonys own comments in an attempt to placate his need for a better surrounding cast in New York. The only way for Anthony to do that is to take less than the max, so it frees Phil to go after better players.

Heres why Melo is torn:

The Bulls cant offer him the max, but they do have more pieces to surround Anthony with his best chance to win a title now, something hes said is a primary factor during his free agency wanderings around the country over the last week. Chicago has reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Joakim Noah; runner-up to Sixth Man of the Year, Taj Gibson if they dont have to unload him to land Melo; a healthy fingers crossed former MVP in Derrick Rose and a coach and system with Tom Thibodeau that perfectly conjoins with Anthonys score-first mentality. Except, Chicago offers the least money in what could be Anthonys last big payday before he gets too old to command that sort of money.

The Knicks can offer the most money. Thats about all they offer except a tentative plan hatched last week to make a run at Pau Gasol, after moving Tyson Chandler to Dallas. Plus, and this is totally speculative, but Phils Triangle Offense might make better use of Melos mid-range game, though hed have to buy in to a system that rewards more offensive movement than the iso-heavy Anthony might be prepared to undertake.

The Lakers, possibly after New Yorks reported mixed signals about the max offer, provide a good locale Anthonys wife, La La lives and works in Los Angeles and they have a summer home there plus a full max contract theyve already offered him. Thats forgetting to mention a motivated Kobe Bryant coming back after a season where he only appeared in six games. They also might re-sign Gasol, but right now Pau is still a free agent. Still, neither the Lakers nor the Knicks offer the sort of surrounding talent Chicago has, but the Bulls cant offer the money LA and New York can come up with.

Thats a lot of think about, so its no wonder Anthony is torn. If he wants to win, he should go to Chicago. If he wants the most money, he should choose New York. If he wants what might be the best bet for his pocketbook and family, plus a chance to play with a player like Kobe, the Lakers are the team.

Were glad we dont have to make that decision because hes going to get raked across the coals no matter where he elects to sign.

I'll say it again, homie...

The Bulls need to come to Melo/Knicks and tell him (them) we are willing to do a sign and trade...

Offer 1st round picks, contracts off the books, Niko, and Jimmy Buckets...Get the deal done. He wants to win AND his money...Make it known that the only way he can get his money in the Chi is through a sign & trade...

Call the Knicks bluff...

if carmelo comes to chicago, it will be via a sign and trade. not an outright signing. i'm pretty sure everyone involved in the process is aware of that. not sure why you keep belaboring that point or treating it as a revelation. lolz.

that isn't the holdup. the holdup is that carmelo's an unrestricted free agent and he hasn't decided yet where he wants to play. it's not about the bulls not offering enough. that's just dumb internet fan talk. that part of the process hasn't even come up yet. he'd have to decide on chicago first. before chi and ny even talk S&T specifics.

It's not that I think I'm dropping a revelation...lol...It's my way of saying that this is all about convincing Melo to strong arm the Knicks...

I already know Melo is still making up his mind...I'm not among the fanboy contingent...My fear, Dula, is that the Chi was walking away from the Melo sweepstakes...

I just want them to continue the pressure. Whether or not Melo decides to ride with us is moot at this point. Let's just continue to go hard...

they haven't walked away. they just understand that his returning to new york is and always has been by far the most likely scenario, and they're plotting their contingencies as any smart organization would. but they're still in the mix until they get an official no, and are operating accordingly.

>I just want them to continue the pressure.

they've made their presentation. he was reportedly very impressed, evidenced by them still being in the mix. at this point it's just a waiting game for everyone involved.

btw, if the Bulls do a S&T with the Knicks, they should try to give up Snell instead of Butler. We've got shooting now, and we'll need a defensive stopper like Butler to guard Lebron & everybody else.

A "friend familiar with the situation", I tend to not believe it

I'm not gonna knock the writers, but even Stephen A. said nobody knows, all these sources don't know, only the players know. To report stuff like this is to drive up drama

It would sound more believable if they talked to say an agent, but trying to talk to a friend of a friend of a friend of a player? I'll wait till they sign dem papers

You're literally just posting out of hate.

-Chicago has the better ready-to-go roster, but not the money and don't have a lot of attractive options for S&T deals to pay him. Still, Rose and Noah makes for a great tandem to play with while being coached by one of the best coaches in the game at the moment.

-New York can offer the most money and the allure of Phil Jackson's vision, but don't really have the greatest roster and would have to do some leg work to get another star for Melo to play with, not a lot of assets to make it happen with, and they have an unproven coach. Amare's massive expiring could net something worthwhile though.

-Lakers can offer him max money, but not like New York can. Roster wise, they're a gamble in that they can offer the probability of Pau resigning, a healthy Kobe who may or may not still be a major threat, and a promising young rookie in Randle. If those stars align and Pau does what Pau usually does, Kobe returns as something resembling his former self, Randle happens, Marshall's play-making stays on track, and Nash's expiring deal nets something else? Add Melo to that and they could do a lot more damage then people are willing to give them credit for. Still, that's an awful lot of things that need to go just right, and they STILL HAVE NO COACH.

-Houston has Dwight and Harden, along with assets that shouldn't be too hard to trade to free up money. That said, McHale sucks, Harden is redundant with Melo on the team (seriously, Born Ready would be a better fit for that squad with Melo, but I digress), Still, they'd likely lose Parsons, Asik, and Lin in the process, which is a loss of considerable depth.

-Dallas, which I'm shocked he didn't give more of a thought. Dirk, Monte, and Tyson is a good nucleus to join. They have long term coaching stability and a coach who will go all out when he smells blood. Not sure what the issue with them is, but that's a great situation IMO. As it stands they should probably just add Ariza and Isiah Thomas and relaunch a new era of gunslingers. They'd outscore most teams more nights then not, but I digress. Melo, Dirk, Tyson, and Monte puts them at top four out west, possibly displacing OKC in the top three.

Yeah, there's a shitload of things to consider

"While his individual numbers arent particularly staggering, its his effect on the rest of a teams offense where he provides his value. The Suns averaged 110.4 points per-100-possessions with Frye on the floor, compared to only 102.5 points per-100 possessions with Frye on the bench, per NBA.com.

"Particularly, his presence helped the development of guard Goran Dragic and pseudo-combo forward Markieff Morris. With Frye on the court, Dragics shooting percentage rose from 47% to 52.1%, his three-point shooting skyrocketed from 29.1% to 46.7%, and his assist rate rose from 20.4% to 24.1%. Morriss numbers also skyrocketed across the board with Frye on the floor. His true-shooting percentage went from 55.3% to 58.3%, and Fryes presence gave him more space to operate in his preferred 15-19 foot area the area of the floor where he took the most of his shots outside of at the rim where Morriss shooting percentage rose from 43.5% with Frye off the floor to 51.9% with him on it."

Channing just isnt that good. the Morris bros werent solid early on but they were BALLIN later in the year, especially 'Kief. thats why Channing's minutes dropped, mainly bc he isnt aggressive and just shoots 3s all the time (we have Gerald Green who is a much better shooter).

Channing did swish some threes here and there but you woulda laughed if you had seen all the times he would be boxed out of the paint for rebounds by fucking shooting guards. it was infuriating.

damn....

ain't mad at these cats...

but damn...that's a lot of damn money for a role player..

and I know that's a position that's thin in FA right now..

but like I said... I ain't mad the Lakers are waiting till all this hashes out because of all the contracts I've seen so far...ain't 1..well maybe Farmar..but other than that..not a one that I would have been cool with the Lakes doing..

no way...

our plan b or c will put us solid squad together because the guys that are actually worth some dough or some years are still out there...

The demise is real, yes, but he had some really good games last year still...

The Bulls should have him visit and offer him some bullshit deal, even though he won't take it, it'll look that much funnier when Miami pays him 3x what the market justified for him, while Bosh is taking like a 30% discount then the market indicates

i don't even want wade on the heat
him having no market value actually helps the heat secure him at a lower price if it comes down to that
unfortunately it won't because everyone and their grandmother knows what wade and the heat are doing so this is just a unfunny cheap shot

I thought it was clear that Wade was off the market. Wade will retire as a Heat. I'm sure every team knew that.
He is waiting to just sign as a formality, get his jersey retired, get a small stake of the franchise and have a street named after him in Miami.

He's simply not very good anymore, and his value

years away from veteran-minimum type production.

The only people signing right now will likely be role players. People are waiting to hear about the big free agents and Lance's people would probably rather get more offers and find out who whiffs on the big FAs before settling on a deal.

I think Hinkie would rather get a pick and eat a contract like Jeremy Lin or Kendrick Perkins than sign Lance right now.

Lord knows what's going on in MIlwaukee is up to but I could see them being scared off by Lance's antics. There locker room already has enough issues.

Charlotte is apparently hot for Gordon Hayward and Lance is their plan B.

Dallas also doesn't need a SG so even if they miss on a big name, they are more likely to go after someone like Deng than Lance. But mostly, there's no reason for them to rush to sign Lance before the big FAs make their decision.

Also, I doubt Lance's people are going to rush into a deal when they can wait and see if they could land at one of the better teams that missed out on a top FA.
