Knicks will get the big prize. King James was meant for the Big Apple just like Kobe was made for tinseltown. There is no way he stay's in Cleveland. Huge Yankee fan, Jeter, Rivera, Arod already lined up to recruit him. If the Cav's win the title, (And they very well could) he will say "there you go Cleveland that was my gift too you. Goodbye. If they don't win, he has to look around. They can't keep their nucleus intact. The Knicks have young stars like Wilson Chandler, Danillo Gallinari, and cap space to sign 2 megastars. Lee will also fit in and Curry at the deadline can be traded for a long term high dollar pact. Knicks are in position to rock this summer. Write it down, talk to me in July. Bron is a Knick.

To be honest I dont think that Bosh or LBJ will go to the Knicks. They want to win it all and going to the Knicks wont really seem like the best Idea. Yeah They can have eachother if the both sign but how after that? The Knicks have nobody. I think they will just end up with the lower tier free agents and a whole bunch of new york people ready to start a riot after every game. I have nothing against the Knicks either but sometimes people need to realize that to some players it isnt all about the money

If the Knicks could find a PG for Chandler/Gallo they'd be sick, unless they have the cap room to get a Ridnour or maybe Fisher if he chooses to leave LA.

PG - Trade/Ridnour/Fisher/Douglas?
SG - Johnson
SF - James
PF - Bender? Insert Mid level exception? Lee?
C - Lee/ Shaq?
6th man: Chandler/Gallo.

God I hate the Knicks :facepalm:

Well if it's a sign and trade, then you wouldn't be getting any free agents. You would get players from another team.

Not really, Turkoglu was S&T to the Raptors and Marion was S&T to the Mavs.

Regardless, we wouldn't be S&Ting for scrubs, so there would have to be a pretty good deal out there.. ie. a good player coming back our way who would be ???

And without Bosh coming back even if the S&T IS for scrubs, we would have money from Bosh's expiring contract to spend on FA's.

As a Kings fan, I admire that someone finally realized the we should be included on a list in some form... but I think I read somewhere that David Lee would exercise his right of refusal if he was included in the TMac trade to go to the kings.

So while i do agree that we might sign a big name, it probably wont be him.

You can get this with a sign and trade for Joe Johnson with the dampier contract and TE. Sign Campby with MLE...actually a very likely senario

If Bosh leaves, the Raptors still already have 47 million committed next year, so if the cap is at 53 or 54, you still only have 6 or 7 million to spend. So really a S & T is the Raps only chance at staying competitive next year. And if Bosh wants to go to a team that has cap space and can win, i.e. bulls, clippers, heat, thunder, he will just sign with them instead of letting them get raped of their players

Right now, Chicago and New Jersey seem like the most attractive spots for a top-tier free agent, because they have some decent pieces to build around. New York still needs a point guard and a center. I would put Miami and Toronto on that list, but Bosh and Wade are likely to leave. Other teams will depend on a sign-and-trade.

Spencesc11
02-19-2010, 12:37 PM
Lebron James - Cavs
Dwayne Wade - Heat
Chris Bosh - Knicks
Joe Johnson - Knicks
Amare Stoudemire - Heat
Carlos Boozer - Bulls
Rudy Gay - Clippers or Nets
Marcus Camby - Spurs
Ray Allen - Bulls
Shaquille O'Neill - Cavs
David Lee - Raptors
Manu Ginobli - Spurs or Rockets

Lebron and D. Wade will not leave because King James has the best supporting cast he's ever had (M. Williams, Jamison, Shaq, etc..) D. Wade will get Amare to play with. So that leave the Knicks with the consolation prize of Joe Johnson and Chris Bosh. If they can somehow fit McGrady in to the Knicks could be an explosive fun team to watch.

S. Rodriguez, J. Johnson, McGrady, Gallinari, and Bosh with T. Douglas and W. Chandler off the bench. I see 120 pts a game with that lineup and #6 seed in the eastern conference.

If the Bulls could add Boozer and R. Allen they would be a solid #5 seed in the east with Rose, Allen, Deng, Boozer, and Noah.

The Clippers or Nets will overpay for Rudy Gay since both teams have a huge hole at small forward and will not be able to pry James away from Cleveland.

And the Spurs could make one more run at it next season if they could add Camby to the front line with Duncan and resign Ginobli. Not sure how both fit under the cap for them but both players are definitely win first money 2nd type guys.

And David Lee signs a big deal to replace Bosh in Toronto which should at least keep Toronto as an eastern conference playoff team.

David Lee..........................Thunder
Al Harrington.....................Hawks
Rudy Gay..........................Clippers
Luis Scola.........................Rockets
Marcus Camby...................Nuggets or Clippers

Nice Job! Personally i see JJ staying in Atlanta, Gay going back to Memphis, I also think Ginobili will be elsewhere next season(one last pay day, spurs looking to transition) everything else i would agree with.

Lebron/Bosh do not have player options...they could sign bigger contracts with their respective teams(6yrs vs 5yrs). Dirk has a player option he'll exercise not sign a max deal

Lebron James: http://hoopshype.com/salaries/cleveland.htm

Chris Bosh: http://hoopshype.com/salaries/toronto.htm

Dirk WILL sign the max contact b/c Cuban wants to make sure Dirk, the franchise player, will be on this roster for years to come.

Doesn't Yao have a player's option? Wouldn't it make sense for him NOT to opt-out because he has been injured all season?

Nobody! Who in there right mind would choose to play in Toronto. It just doesnt make any sense.

Didn't Hedo and Jarret Jack? :confused:
