When the big free agent class hits in 2010, what is the max deal they can sign for on a NEW team.......say lebron does decide to leave Clevland and sign with the Knicks straight up...what would his max deal be?????


I think he could only sign for 5 years instead of 6, but what would the money look like?????

Not sure if we know 2 years down the road since the salary cap is expanding with each passing year.

Other teams not through sign and trade, 110 mil over 5 years.

Cavs or other teams through sign and trade, 145 mil over 6 years.

However James might not want a max length deal like the contract he signed after his rookie year. Especially If he/his agent feels like the players have leverage when negotiating a new CBA, he may opt for another 4 year deal with the last year being a player option.
