I think Ben Gordon is coming back to the Bulls. He will get other offers, but I think the Bulls will match any offer he gets in order to keep him.

I think Houston will keep Artest, and Iverson and Kidd will go to teams with a good chance to win a title for the MLE, same probably for Rasheed.

Rest of the guys like Boozer, Odom, Marion, Bibby will probably go to the biggest contract, although I think the Hawks will try to keep Bibby.

Not a lot of teams with cap space this summer, or that are willing to blow it all in hopes of landing one of those guys in 2010.

Iverson - Bobcats, Hawks, Mavericks

Marvin Williams - Resign
Artest - Resign
Odom - (If LA doesn't win the title, they don't resign him)

"resign" means to vacate or walk away.

"re-sign" is probably the word you were looking for?

if kidd wanted to play with lebron he would have come to cavs when he was being traded from nets...so that rules out kidd comin to cavs....but who knows he could change his mind and come to cavs....

Powe or Gooden will be in a Warriors uni this time next season, they are both from the bay area and grew up warriors fans. Powe has already said he wanted to get drafted by the Warriors so he could have played in Oakland, his hometown.

Absolutley terrible year to be a free agent because most teams with cap space will be holding out for 2010. I think a lot of those guys wont be getting the big deals they're looking for. I think guys like sheed, AI and kidd (who have all made plenty of money over the years) will take less money to sign with contenders in search for rings. Boozer is the biggest name still in his prime and his performance in the playoffs could determine the type of contract hes going to get in the offseason and from what ive heard most signs point to him heading elsewhere and the jazz moveing forward with millsap. Odom i think is in the same boat in that if he has a great postseason he could get a bigger offer and go elsewhere but if hes solid and does his job and LA wins it all i could definatley see him back LA. I still think ben gordon will be kicking himself for not takeing 50 million when it was on the table last year.

Why does everyone say that Kidd is going to "re-sign".
Would you come back to a team that is just about bottom in the west at his age?
Celtics, Cavs, Lakers - contenders.

JerzeyFresh
04-11-2009, 12:15 PM
celtics have almost no cap how are they going to sign him i dont think anyone on this thread who has the celtics acquiring top paid players understands that they couldn't even re-sign Posey so how are they signing Kidd?

PennyMy#1
04-11-2009, 12:35 PM

True ! The Mavs just made a better offer to the Nets, so they were sending him to Dallas. Kidd had nothing to do with that ...

SHAWN MARION- Wherever he can get the most money. Grizzlies anyone?


Yeah, I think the Grizzlies are going to one of the very few teams that will actually have some money. They've got a young team and are in desparate need of a PF and I don't think that Marion fits that mold. Unless they get rid of Gay I don't think you'll see Marion in a Grizzly uniform. I think they might make a run at Boozer to fill their needs in the post. But who knows its the Grizzlies???
