they just showed it on espn

1.knicks
2.nets
3.miami
4.chicago
5.clippers

i still say miami and chicago will be the biggest winners in the summer. they actually have stars on their teams to attract FA's. i say the knicks and nets over pay some B or C class free agent.

The Knicks, Nets and Heat all have more cap space.

Good job by the Bulls though, they really cleared some cap room

Well Miami doesnt have anyone signed for next year besides Beasley and Dequan Cook. OKC should be mentioned, they have space to sign a superstar and have a very good team as it is. They should make a push for Boozer or Joe Johnson.

8 teams have enough for a Max player
2 teams have enough for 2 max contracts: Knicks/Heat

Wizards/Clippers/Bulls/Wolves/Nets/Kings are the other 6

If the New York is lucky enough that Eddy Curry and Jared Jeffries don't pick up their options, the Knicks will only have $6'506'041 on their payroll heading into the off-season...:speechless:

yea i think OKC could be mentioned, but they are a small market team and im not saying thats whats going to keep them from signing someone, i think its more about the money that i dont think OKC wants to spend. id be surprised if OKC opens their check books and really spend. I think they will let their young guys develop. also im assuming wade stays on miami

That is correct. I've apparantly already forgotten the biggest trade to happen today. I suck :pity:

Bulls fans, do you really think yo have the most cap space? If so your wrong but your in the top 5.
On the other hand have a real good PG that will attract a Superstar FA and then maybe a guy that has Star quality. They will have a real contender.

Being a Knick fan Im really happy we got under the cap but if were gonna try to get 2 Superstar FA's at max contracts we will not be able to afford Lee. In that case why keep him. Now I in no way would want Lee to go but if he isnt going to be a part of next season why not get something for him. On the other hand if they dont get 2 max salary FA's I think dumping the last 3 seasons would be for nothing.

Noone said the Bulls would have the most. This thread was just asking who would...easy killer.

That said - Knicks will have the most but they gave away ALOT. 2 1st rounders and just about everyone else on their roster. They may technically have room for 2 max, but they need to fill the rest of the roster somehow..and that cuts into it.

its not always about the cap space. take 2000 for example. the bulls had enough to sign two FA's to go along with elton brand and ron artest. who did they get? Eddie Robinson and over paid to get him. how did the Magic get grant hill to go along with the signing of McGrady? through a sign and trade, even if the bulls only can afford one star, they can still sign and trade before its all said and done when a team realizes they are gonna lose their player for nothing. also there is still the draft to make a deal to clear up more room and also the bulls have a pretty descent team outside of just Rose. who do the knicks have if they sign two guys? Eddy curry? the bulls didnt get anyone in 2000 cause they sucked, you sure you wanna be that confident the knicks are gonna attract some big names?

They didn't get anyone in 2000 because no star wanted to live in Jordan's shadow so soon after his retirement. That's still pretty much true though..

you could make a case for that about a bunch of different teams who had great players retire such as when shaq signed with the lakers a year after magic came back and retired again or all these centers they signed to play after Ewing was traded and such. i mean i jordan is different, but i dont htink it played that big of a deal. it more had to do with how bad the bulls were

Good post here.


Lets end this here people.

There are 7 teams now with cap space to sign one max player.

First off, the cap at 56.0 million is not going to happen. With the owners complaining for a hard cap, I can almost guarantee Stern will drop the salary cap down to 52.0 to 53.6 million in order to get the owners to agree that with a salary cap and luxury tax drop then a hard cap is not needed.

On a max 53.6 million scale, the total salary cap they will have on guaranteed deals includes

1). Heat = 11.78
2). Knicks = 18.67
3). Nets = 26.7
4). Wizards = 29.0
5). Bulls = 31.9
6). Clippers = 33.5
7). Kings - 33.6

In order with most cap space. (Wade will opt out for a bigger deal)

If we include estimated with picks (1st and 2nd)

1). Heat = 16.28 (Toronto 1st, Miami 1st, New Orleans 2nd, LA Clippers 2nd)
2). Knicks = 21.2 (2010 2nd Round Pick Clippers, NY 2nd)
3). Nets = 32.2 (Top 4 Pick, Dallas 1st, No 2nd Round Pick)
4). Bulls = 33.4 (Mid 1st, No 2nd Round Pick)
5). Wizards = 34.5 (Lottery Pick, Cavs Pick, 2nd Round Pick)
6). Clippers = 37.0
7). Kings - 38.0 (1st and 2nd)

There you have it. The Kings may not make the cut or just barely make it. The Clippers are in the same boat. The rest have enough. Knicks and Heat can sign 2 max FA's.

Wonder if Arenas contract will be voided. If so, the Wiz will have $ to acquire anyone.

these teams can have all that money but none of them can offer Bosh, Lebron or Wade that coveted 6th year and from my understanding the difference between that 5th and 6th year is around 30 million. I cant speak for any of the other big name free agents so I don't know how big of a motivator money is, but being from Toronto and listening to Bosh's interviews on Toronto radios and sports shows, money will play a HUGE role in his decision, and Toronto can offer him more than anyone else.

Good post here.

2nd round picks don't matter and won't really count against the cap if it comes down to it.

The bigger issue is the cap hold on players teams want to retain.

If the wizards can get the league to void arenas contract they could sign bosh, lebron, and wade to the same team for 15 million each but they wouldn't have any money left to sign the rest of the team. they would have an amazing 8 or 9 players but they made the salary cap dump the sixers should have made but didn't.
