For over a year now people have been speculating on where the 2010 FA class will go. Threw out these forums are topics about certain players and it gets confusing. So I wanted to bring all the players together and get everyones official thoughts on it.

Where do these 2010 Free Agents go? Give your team and a short reason if you want.


Lebron James- Cleveland Home, good team, Great owner and good GM.

Dwayne Wade- Miami Won a Title, On the beach. Leader.

Chris Bosh- Knicks He Buys whatever NY is selling.

Amare Stoudemire- Heat Born and raised. With wade.

Joe Johnson- Cleveland threw sign and trade.

Dirk Nowitzki- Dallas

Carlos Boozer- Bulls Made some comments that makes me lean this way.

Ray Allen- Boston They don't have anyone better at SG to take over, So he returns.

Shaq- Cleveland If the Cavs land JJ, Shaq will return for another year.

Brendan Haywood- Dallas I would love for my Cavs to go after him before Shaq, But I feel he will stay.

Udonis Haslem- Portland

John Salmons- Knicks Will opt out of the Bucks contract and get more money.

David Lee- Thunder Would be Great on that young team.

Al Harrington- Clippers

Josh Howard- Washington they will pick up the team option.

Mike Miller- Kings IDK.

Just a rough draft.

I think Joe Johnson is the most likely out of all the players to go there. This is very realistic

Williams
Johnson
James
Hickson
Shaq

That's a great team. (assuming Jamison is used in the S&T)


And of course I love the Heat off-season

Chalmers
Wade
Wright
Beasley
Amare

That would be great!

If there is a sign and trade for Joe, who on the Cavs comes to the Hawks? The Hawks will let Joe walk before taking on contracts. Everyone on the Cavs is not better than our starters (besides Lebron), and all of your "good" players have crappy contracts. No Thanks. But if you can't sign Joe outright, Hawks isn't going to take on contracts to make the Cavs better.

The only thing Hawks would want is:

1. Joe Back
2. Draft Picks
3. a center not over 30.
4. a TRUE PG

A sign and trade for Lebron to the Hawks would be more true than a Joe to Cavs. Atleast we got young all-stars to trade.

haha no ones ever going to buy with the cavs are selling like noah said that city is garbage when it comes to sports teams and im saying that as nice as i can, so MODS im not trying to start a fight or get banned its just true cavaliers, browns, indians plus the video on youtube showing the city..Secondly why would the raptors lose their franchise player and not sign anyone:S...

That might end up being one of the worst defensive and rebounding teams EVER.

Possibly...but Beas and Amare have the potential to outrebound and defend if they try.

Ok first off I have not been on PSD in quite some time. Second off I have not made a thread in years and I donít think ever in the NBA area. Lastly I realize there are so many threads about the upcoming class but i had this thought that i was talking with my buddies and wondering your opinion and if there was ever a chance and if you if you were one of the players would do this.

Lebron, Wade, Bosh, Johnson, Amare, and hell whoever else wanted to would all sign one year contracts, all receiving the same amount of money to play for one franchise that year. So if to sign all of them they would only make 3 mil a year that is what they would do. Im not huge on the NBA but i would assume they would win the championship with whatever team they went to. Say they do this for the next 6 years, different cities, half dozen rings, and would take over the NBA and always be in history.

First I almost know this wont happen but would you if you had the choice?
I realize one would sacrifice millions of dollars and the i couldnít lead a team single handily to a championship mentality (but who can?).

Basically i see it that they would get rings (almost everyone says thatís what it is about) all still swimming in money and have enough endorsements, enough money from the jerseys you have for each different team etc.

Just a thought, what are yours?

Hahaha yes, but see if i were them go to different teams, say to each of their hometown teams, then cities they like. But with that different jerseys, = alot more money, might cover the fee of taking less money....

Lebron James - New York Knicks - Big City, Big Dream, Big second Max, Gallo

Chris Bosh - New York Knicks - see above


Dwayne Wade- Miami Heat - Won a Title, On the beach. Second Max.

Amare Stoudemire - Miami Heat - On the beach, and with Wade.

Joe Johnson - Chicago Bulls - Compliments the Bulls team.

Carlos Boozer - Nets/Jazz - We'll see ...

David Lee - Raptors/Thunderr - Raptors s&t to get the player they like. If not then to the Thunder because they got $ and Lee will give them hustle/rebounds/best passing big guy.

Mike Miller - Lakers - Lakers shown interest and need a shooter. MLE$

Shaq - Retires/Thunder/Lakers - I honestly think he retires but he can surprise people by coming to the Thunder or go where he should of stayed with the Lakers.

John Salmons - Clippers - Baron-Gordon-Salmons-Blake-Kaman, looks good

Ray Allen - Celtics - - Most likely will get most money there

NY gets bosh through sign and trade (lee- the raptors would rather want lee, than having injury prone bynum, or receiving deng and his horrible contract)

NY will then get lebron.

Chicago gets Joe Johnson

Wade and Amare (they trade beasley to phoenix) to Miami

Boozer, Shaq (he was born in NJ), and Rudy Gay to the Nets.

Brendan Haywood to the THUNDER! They need a big man and I think they'll offe him the most money.

Tmac to the Clippers.

Ray Allen stays in Boston

Nowitzki stays in Dallas, Mike Miller also joins Dallas

I'm still wondering if there is a team beside the Raptors who would pay a max contract for Bosh? I think the Knicks would IF they knew that it would draw in Wade or James, but I think if the Knicks saw Wade and James sign elsewhere, they'd rather pay a lower salary for Lee and pick up Joe Johnson, or even Amare or Boozer instead of Bosh.

For the Raptors, Bosh is worth a max deal alone, but for any other team, I don't think Bosh is worth the max unless it means bringing in another max-contract player, and NY is the only team with that kind of cap space... so... I'm thinking there is still a good chance that the Raptors may come away with Bosh. After all, Walsh is not Isiah Thomas... he's not going to give out huge contract for players who he knows aren't worth it. He didn't do with the Pacers, and I doubt he will start now (unless his bosses tell him its ok to overspend, but I'm pretty sure they told Thomas that before and it didn't turn out well).

Dwayne Wade- Miami-Won a Title and is God in the city

Chris Bosh- New York-Has basically said he wants to follow LeBron

Amare Stoudemire- Miami-He would relish the opportunity to play alongside Wade

Joe Johnson- Atlanta-They want nothing more than to keep him and he has a great team around him, no reason to leave.

Dirk Nowitzki- Dallas-Just cant see him leaving Dallas

Carlos Boozer- Chicago-Pairing him with Rose and Noah makes Chicago a 3 seed caliber team in the East.

Ray Allen- Boston-Might get a second title this year and would love a shot at the repeat..

Shaq- Retire-Too OLD

David Lee- Thunder-Along with the growth of KD, Westbrook, and Harden, Lee would make a good young team great in OKC
