View Full Version : Rumor: Bell to join Bosh, James, and Wade in Miami?

"Id obviously like to play for a winning team and win something. I got two boys and a wife and our home base is Miami so anywhere up and down this east coast would be a great fit for me."

Link

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: There are two reasons Raja Bell - an unrestricted free agent - has interest in suiting up for the Miami Heat.

First, as Bell mentioned South Beach is home. He grew up in Florida. He went to college in Florida. And his family lives in Florida. So there's a sentimental attachment to the area.

Second, Bell is aware of a rumor making the viral rounds: Chris Bosh and LeBron James will join Dwyane Wade and sign with the Miami Heat instead of the Chicago Bulls.

James reportedly has concerns about the Bulls: owner Jerry Reinsdorf is always reluctant to spend on winning; Derrick Rose may struggle off the ball next to The King; there's no three-point gunner to spread the floor and keep opposing defenses honest; and Tom Thibodeau is a rookie coach.

(Of course, this could be conjecture and speculation. Chicago still has much to offer free agents.)

So Bell knows Miami could well become a contender -and surely wants in.

The Heat - after the dust settles with James and Bosh - should add Bell. His defense, intensity, and three-point stroke is perfect for a contending team. And hed likely give oil-slick GM Pat Riley a hometown discount.

Right now, Miami is looking to make major moves, which could land them a useful veteran in Bell.

I don't want him to go to Miami or Chicago but Chicago without question is the better fit. In Miami with the three superstars I just don't see that working out well at all, you still only get to use one basketball. In Chicago he would have an up and coming superstar and solid role players that compliment him nicely.

I think the thread should be re-named "Bosh, Wade and James to join Raja Bell in Miami?" ;)

He's the top domino here.

But the more I hear about that trio winding up in Miami, the more scared I get.

But Raja wanting to play in Miami, and Miami being interested in Raja are two completely different stories. I want to play in Miami, but that doesn't mean I will :nod:

Jerry Reinsdorf is not cheap.

ask jordan and his checkbook. ask jay williams and his broken motorcycle. ask pippen at the end of his career and his $10million dollar contract....

Agree that in Chi-town he'd fit better, but overall the team isn't all that good. Sure they'll win a ton of games, but getting deep into the playoffs is where the Bulls would fall short.

As for the trio of Wade/Lebron/Bosh... That's nice, but it doesn't fit like the KG/Pierce/Allen trio worked simply b/c each of those players have definite strengths that mesh well together. Bosh isn't a back to the basket type player, and Wade/Lebron both need the ball to be effective. If they don't have the ball, they'll have to come around screens and get open looks (like Ray Allen)... not exactly their game.

The Miami Heat trio won't work, but let most people think it will. If you want to challenge the Lakers or other contenders you better have size up front.

i think you fail to realize what would happen if the trio did sign with MIA. every seasoned vet that isnt in line for a major payday will want in on the action and will likely take less to play there. this trio is more explosive then KG, Allen and Pierce imo. If wade could win a ring with an aged shaq, Payton, Walker, J will etc im pretty sure he could win with Bron and Bosh

Reinsdorf never had problems paying stars, it was paying role players. That's a big reason the '98 Bulls broke up, MJ retired because he knew that not only was Scottie leaving, but Kerr, Longley Rodman etc... were all gonna be gone. Remember, Reinsdorf also owns the White Sox, so he can't put too much money into either or the other will suffer.

hahahahahaha, hilarious. IT"S CALLED SOUTH BEACH! if your team is planning for 2010 while they are playing in 2008 i think it's fair that the fans have alot better things to do in the city than watch a garbage heat team that wasnt contending and open about it. I would love some attendance numbers on those ****** bulls teams after Jordan left. you need to understand the situation.

IN respect to the "fair weather fan" thing, while it is true, if all 3 join wouldnt that make it a good fanbase since we would be winning?? I mean seriously its a stupid comment to make when getting 3 megastars. Maybe if just one was there and didnt deliver you could see that backfireing but even then D wade was by himself these past 2 years and the city embraced him and treated him like the jordan of south beach. Lebron and Bosh have to have seen the attention the organization gives to their stars (and hard workers AKA Udonis Haslem who they also threw a part for). The fans maybe fairweather butt he organization is surely not. And even if they are fair weather the weather here will be far from fair with those three here.

Thats all the Bulls fan say about us lol. Yea we have bad fans, but i know im not i could care less if every other person in miami is a bandwagon hopper. Ill just be happy theryre filling the seats of the big 3 come down here.

LBJ and Bosh should go to NY. It's the best thing for basketball. Gallinari, Chandler, Douglas, and Walker would compliment them well. Next year, Bosh and LBJ could pick the players they want to add when Curry comes off the books.

LBJ doesn't want to live in Jordan's shadow or have to fit in Wade's city or play in the Nets terrible arena the next 3 years. Go to NY LBJ and Bosh. Go to Miami Boozer and Joe Johnson. Let Chicago sign Amare and Rudy Gay. The East gets much better but stays balanced.

Yeah, go to NY where he can continue to lose for the next 8-10 years. NY isn't even close to being in real contention for a playoff spot in the East, much less advancing in the playoffs. NJ and NY are dead ends.

it's not like im making all this crap up. you can see it just turning on miami or marlins games. also, the bulls when they were horrible were still selling out. the bulls have sold out pretty much almost every game, if not every game since i believe 1988 or 1989

While i agree to a certain extent, yes even as a HEAT fan, it would be heavily one sided but now im also starting to think this would make some GMs who before were hesitant to pull off big name trades almost surely try anything to even be on the same playing field as Miami and maybe LA.

I could see CP3 traded for sure because NO will have no chance in hell and theyd know it so why waste more money and no chance of competing they would instead just be happy being under the cap and doing bad and hopefully building up again. Then other teams would be happy to take back NO ugly contracts just to get CP3 (posibly orlando).

I could see the Mavericks making moves to improve. Mark Cuban wants to win and will spare no expense i could see them enticing JJ and JJ accepting because he knows he will need to play with a lot of talent to comepte. And possibly even Shaq to join JJ marion and Dirk.

The thunder had a good draft and adding a though pf like boozer or lee can help them take the next step and in a few years there squad can surely compete. Same with NJ.

So i think the league will be fine competition wise.

I'm not going to say anything about Miami's fan base, because I honestly don't know anything about it. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on something I know nothing about. As for the Bulls attendance numbers though, the average attendance has been over 18,000 per game every season since 1990. I remember watching every one of the Bulls seasons after Jordan left, and I'm sure there are plenty of Heat fans that watch every game no matter how good the team is. The Bulls have been near the top of the league in attendance for as long as I've been alive though, just thought I'd throw that out there.

thank you JB on this one doing the research


Thanks to the whopping $30 million salary for Michael Jordan this season, the Chicago Bulls holds the distinction of having the highest payroll roll among all NBA teams.

The Bulls reportedly has a league-record record payroll of more than $58 million. That figure is also a record for the 30-year-old franchise.

In addition to Jordan's $30 million salary, Dennis Rodman has a large $9 million contract to add to the enlarged payroll.

The Bulls, winner of four NBA titles in six NBA seasons, has rewarded its key members, and team owner Jerry Reinsdorf says if they can win again, it will be worth it.

"...If we win another championship this season, (the bulging payroll will be worth it," Reinsdorf said in the Chicago Sun-Times.

Other teams with big money payrolls are the Orlando Magic at $46.5 million, even after losing Shaquille O'Neal to free-agency; the Indiana Pacers are third on the list at $41.8 million; the Phoenix Suns are fourth at 37.2 million and the Washington Bullets at $35.4 million round out the top five teams.

1996-97 Chicago Bull's Payroll:

1. Michael Jordan $30,140,000
2. Dennis Rodman $9,000,000
3. Toni Kukoc $3,960,000
4. Ron Harper $3,840,000
5. Luc Longley $2,790,000
6. Scottie Pippen $2,250,000
7. Randy Brown $1,300,000
8. Dickey Simpkins $1,040,000
9. Robert Parish $1,000,000
10. Bill Wennington $1,000,000
11. Steve Kerr $750,000
12. Jason Caffey $700,000
13. Judd Buechler $500,000

Total $58,270,000

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_Salary_Cap

So that was 1997 when the salary cap was at 24.4 million.

Jordan himself was over the salary cap.

"So Bell knows Miami could well become a contender -and surely wants in."

And this is why I look down on vets trying to chase a ring when they know it will be handed to them this way. Of course he wants to sign with the Heat now with the rumors of a Lebron/Wade/Bosh signing. But will he if all they get is Wade?

I'm not hating on any team when I say these things. Just those "vets" that does this crap, like if they win a ring people will look at him as a champ. Wrong. These things are worse than fighting and fighting but not winning a ring like Iverson. I respect Iverson (to this point anyways) because he wants to win a ring by fighting for it, not signing for vet min on a loaded all-star team. Those players lose respect.

Dude gets paid millions to play a GAME for his job and doesn't even try to play for the Warriors last year, but is ready to go for a Lebron-sucking good time. So it's more than him at the tail-end of his career, but more about not playing when he is getting paid on sucky teams and then wants to jump ship to a title contender, when people would kill to play ball for millions of dollars.:facepalm:

I wish this would get shutdown. Those three on the same team by signing as FA's? Stern should step in and stop it. Teams cannot talk, but players can? The NBA would be hurt badly if this happened. It would tilt the competition level upside down.

And yet I'd take a Celtics or Lakers team of the 80's as being much more talented and deeper than a proposed Miami Heat team of Wade, Bosh, Bell, and LeBron.

Reinsdorf never had problems paying stars, it was paying role players. That's a big reason the '98 Bulls broke up, MJ retired because he knew that not only was Scottie leaving, but Kerr, Longley Rodman etc... were all gonna be gone. Remember, Reinsdorf also owns the White Sox, so he can't put too much money into either or the other will suffer.

No thats false. Jordan left because Reinsdorf and Jerry Krause forced out Phil Jackson and wanted to bring in Tim Floyd even if they won the championship in 1998. Jordan disliked Krause (openly criticizing him in the media). Forcing out the coach whom he grew to admire and had the most success with for an NCAA coach was the last straw for Jordan (and Pippen).

If Kerr, Longley, and Rodman left, then Krause could've found replacements via the draft. Its what he did when Paxson, B.J. Armstrong and Cartwright left after the 1991-1993 run.

From Ira Winderman, very trusted heat writer for 22years
MIAMI —
A source close to Miami Heat free-agent guard Dwyane Wade has confirmed that in recent days Wade not only has addressed the possibility of playing alongside Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Toronto Raptors forward Chris Bosh, but has discussed the financial machinations.

The Sun Sentinel has learned that the three star free agents have gone as far as to acknowledge that it might not be possible for the Heat to clear the needed space to start each of the three at the $16.6 million maximum salary that they would be eligible for in the first year of new contracts.

According to the source, the three have agreed to consider to "split the money up," if need be.

Only thing that is at the very least a 85%, to 90% is that Wade will resign. The rest are all up in the air.

Both Miami, & Chi can have a contending team this year if they get a little lucky.


For now take everything as a joke & let it all go in one ear, & out the other.

Except the primary problem with your logic is that Pat Riley said he's not trying to trade Beasley for mere cap space. He says he sees him as a building block for the team.

If all he wanted was cap space, he could have got it. I'm sure instead of Yi, the Wizards would have taken Beasley if the Heat offered.... but the Heat hasn't been offering him according to Riley and Arison.

My guess along with most Heat fans is he would only look to trade him if he got a commitment from 3 max players. Then he would get on the phone to offer him in either a sign & trade, or a salary dump. It makes no sense to trade him before hand. If Wade leaves the Heat needs Beasley... so he's not going until Wade is re-signed.

I believe the quote was something like "24 teams were calling on Beasley mistakenly thinking he was available for nothing"

Like I said, if they were offering something other than cap space (which imo, is more valuable than Beasley), wouldn't you think 1 of 24 offers would've been decent enough to either trigger or a trade or at least a specific rumor?

And again, the Wizards don't want Beasley, so no I don't think they would take him over Yi.

We are so hot that the water would evaporate before touching the ball, & even the bucket would disintegrate for the awesome power of the Heat ball.;)



The thing is i have bin a Heat fan since 88 & ive seen the bull sweep us in 92, 96, & the 4-1 lose in 97. & that's not counting all the @$$ kicking we got threw out the seasons.:facepalm:

I feel with my sonority i have the right to hate the Bulls franchise, as well as the Knicks franchise.

Another thing is over the last 20 years i have mostly hated Bull/Knicks fan, but you seen like an open minded unbiased Bulls fan from what ive read, & your ok in my book for now.:D

I don't want him to go to Miami or Chicago but Chicago without question is the better fit. In Miami with the three superstars I just don't see that working out well at all, you still only get to use one basketball. In Chicago he would have an up and coming superstar and solid role players that compliment him nicely.

"BREAKING NEWS" LeBron was seen buying bootleg DVD's in Chinatown. He's obviously signing with the Chinese National Team to join Yao Ming. Chris Bosh is sure to follow along with Raja Bell.

If Bell comes cheap, then there's no limit to how many of these glue guys the Heat can sign after the big 3. This would be a domino effect and other players like Carlos Arroyo would be on board to sign for the minimum amount they can sign that allows Miami to go over the cap with those cheap contracts. There's many role players that would take a cut to play with Wade, LeBron & Bosh and this is no secret.

06-29-2010, 06:55 PM
Bosh apparently told the Miami Herald this weekend that Lebron, Wade, and himself joining the Heat is likely not going to happen.

``I don't see it happening,'' Bosh told us this past weekend of the idea of the three playing together on the Heat.

``I don't even know how it would work. It sounds pie in the sky. Riley is known as a guy who is like a mastermind-type genius. He's probably having a vision one day. But who knows? I don't see it

Truth is, we've heard plenty of different analysts claim different things.

I still think they had the conference. Whether they were together or not, does it really matter? Hell it could have been last weekend or some other time. And they can afford private jets...
Also, there's this neat thing nowadays called the conference call.
With that said, I don't make much of it. This was expected regardless, but there's no way Lebron sells himself to join the Heat. No way.
Hell they still need to get rid of Beasley.

I think all this rumor crap is stupid. I think Lebron will be a Bull, and Bosh will go to the Heat. Thought that from day one. All these rumors are hilarious. There is no way Bosh, Wade, and Lebron end up in Miami. That would be so bad for basketball. They would probably win 70 plus games and no doubt would win a ring unless Chris Paul can get to LA without them having to deal Odom, Gasol, Artest, or Kobe. NBA is scripted anyway so it wont happen. According to the script I got, Lebron will go to the Bulls, and it will be Bulls vs Lakers in the finals next year in the finals. Lebron will get his first ring, oh and Phil will be on the Laker bench. Of course Bosh and Wade will take over the role that Miller and his Pacers had of playing the Bulls in the conference fianls and losing every year. Yawn sounds boring to me. Same old ****.

That's all I truly heard about. That Wade and Bosh were at some Miami club. With that said, as a Bulls fan, I'm 90% positive it happened. I don't make of it much, since it was expected LONG before this idea was even considered. Doesn't even necessarily have to have been in Miami.

i kinda wish all these threads would stop, free agency hasnt started and people claim "sources say" like really noone knows what lebron and bosh are truly thinking. miami would be really good if that happend. but to be god honest. i dont think that team could be the lakers. and thats the truth. 1st miami needs to get rid of beasley and that means toronto has to want him in the sign & trade unless they get a pick for him or something then they have enough cap, there aren't shooters in chicago but my point is ray allen is on the market he is the best shooter in the league and if chicago unloads deng in a sign &trade for CB4 they could end up with lebron ray allen joakim, bosh and drose. if i were a free agent i'd much more wanna play with a young passing point guard who doesnt have the "this is my city ego" he's humble and wants to win, dwade too, but those players cannot all share miami and they wont. done deal. i say bosh to miami, lebron to chicago (only if miami is willing to S & T, if not he walks to chicago.)

12.5 each a year for lebron, wade, and bosh??

This comment is why everyone in the world hates an ignorant, ill informed fan that continues to think they know a thing or two about situations without actually doing any research....

Let a Philly fan educate you...


Bosh and LeBron sign on for the max ( 44MM between the two ) which would put them at near 0 after Beasley is traded....

Wade can sign on for the max with his Bird's rights which allows veterans that have played under a 3 year contract with the same team for an additional year ( 6 instead of 5 ) and go as far over the cap as the " hard cap " will allow...

This is usually around 30MM additional or so...


So yes, it is feasible to see all three in Miami with the cap space they currently have...

Splitting the money would be for LeBron and Bosh if they can't dump Beasley since Wade can get a max contract regardless...

That's great, but you are wrong.
I guess that's why Larry Coon, an expect on the CBA has already stated multiple times that the only way it's feasible is via pay cuts.
If I'm correct, bird rights lose effect after July 8th. Other players can't sign to other teams to 08. Therefore it can't work. Although, I could be wrong, one thing is for sure, they can't sign all three of them to the max. Which has been stated numerous times and which is why constantly pay cuts are being talked about as the only option.

They have to take paycuts, but not to the extreme you seem to think.

Their cap holds & max contract for all 3 is exactly: $16,568,908

Assuming Beasley & Toronto's 1st is traded in a S&T for Bosh or a separate trade involving Beasley for cap space........

PG: Chalmers $0.854M
SG: Wade $16.4M
SF: LeBron $16.4M
PF: Bosh $16.4M
C:: Anthony $1.06M (qualifying offer)

EX: Jones' buyout: $1.5M


Total: $52.614M + $3.315M (cap holds x 7) = $55.929

Just under the $56.1M salary cap. Feel free to email this scenario to Larry Coon. It's all legit.

Let me break it down for you. The only way we can afford the three max's is if we trade Beasley off; S&T.

If thats the case you have (and ill round it all off for you so you can see it still fits. 17 mill x 3= 52mill + 1mill for Chalmers +4 mill for empty roster holds= 57 mill.

Salary cap is set at 56.1; and all numbers above are rounded up.

Pretty much.

No. The only way they can get their true true true max is if they rescind the qualifying offer to Joel Anthony (which is perfectly legal).

But the other thing you can take into account is that $16.4 is the same thing as the max any other team can offer because of our tax situation down here. I have read over the course of a 5yr contract the tax difference saves them $3M.... so to give up $100k initially isn't any issue.

We know that the Heat have the ability to get the cap space and pull this off... and we know every single veteran would throw themselves at Riley to play for the minimum to round out a very decent roster. The only thing standing in the way is egos.... and it's the reason I don't think it will happen.

Bosh won't accept 3rd option, and LeBron loves the limelight. I am hoping for a Wade, Johnson, Bosh trio if LeBron doesn't join up. More defined #2, and #3 in that trio.

Sunday??

Except it was either SAS or Broussard or Marc Stein (ALL IDIOTS) said they all met in Miami on a Saturday. ESPN is dumb, we should all make a new sports channel.

Umm, I wasn't. All I said was what that one poster said was nonsense that they can just fill up their cap to the brim and let Wade go over just because he has bird rights.
And on my own, getting a better grasp of how exactly the cap room would work.

Full agreement.
I also found the lack of other players nonsense. Since ring chasers are plenty. Especially in this free agency. Not to mention, Heat have a few 2nd round players and even though they are 2nd round players, it's been proven that young players are more likely to develop into at least decent players on championship teams.


Cool. i guess we'll see soon enough.

Yup.

Does it really matter?
This report DID come yesterday.
Regardless, do you actually believe they didn't somehow talk it over, whether physically present or via conference call? I'm willing to bet a ton that they had some kind of summit. Not that we may ever know...

I think LBJ might go to Miami for one reason: South Beach.

I think Bosh was correct this afternoon in saying that the group of them aren't going anywhere as a group. No team can both come up with the money for all of them and have a decent core to begin with.

Bosh may end up in Miami, since he has ties there, but James will go to Chicago. I think Chicago will probably also get Joe Johnson and one of the other power forwards available, probably Boozer.
