I'm curious to see about Kaman and D-Fisher. I expect they will both be bought out. I expect Fisher to go back to LA, and Kaman to go to the Celtics, but who knows.

fisher cant go back to the lakers for 1 year

for that matter no player who is traded can resign with the team they are being traded from for 1 year

I don't see Fisher going back to LA... Even if legal. Hope the Kings pick up Terrence Williams

I'd like to have him on the Spurs for his veteran leadership and clutch shooting, but I wouldn't want him playing more than 10 mpg. Fisher or Anthony Carter signing would be ok IMO.

Blazers waived Greg Oden & Chris Johnson. Looking to buyout Shawne Williams.
Rockets will buy out Derek Fisher.

Kaman would want to play for a title if he gets bought out. Going to the prehistoric section of a museum is not going to win him a ring. Coming down to Miami will. He will not get bought out because Dell Demps will keep him. JO is going to get bought out eventually. Face it, Boston is done.

I don't want Derek Fisher here. He is old and slow for our team. He would be like another Juwan Howard. I wish we can give Howard an assistant coaching position so he can still be around without taking up a roster spot.

is it possible that someone like beasley gets waived?

beasley getting waived is not even remotely a possibility

He'll be waived in the offseason.

Minnesota struggled to even find trade partners for him now, I doubt they'll pick up his $8 Million Qualifying Offer to bring him back.

It'll be interesting to see where he goes as a Free Agent.

I do know hes a MLE player, but which team will be the one who brings him in? I think OKC would be a great fit as a 6th Man who can be a stretch 4 off the bench next to his childhood friend, Kevin Durant.

Everybody thinks Beasley's a bad defender because he cant guard SF's, but in Miami he was a very good defender when he was guarding against PF's. Just has lapses in focus due to his shot not falling on offense and him getting frustrated.

God no. I never want to see that worthless player in Black and Silver. Fisher has very little of a game left. Ronny Turiaf is an interesting guy.

Shawn Williams back to the Knicks. They hated parting ways with him. He could be a Celtics bench piece too.

Knicks have no need for Williams now that they have Novak. Our roster if full and I dont see Bibby getting waived with Davis still catching little injuries.

Turiaf and Nocioni would be solid pickups

If im the magic id sign turiaf and williams. We could use a back up C for the play offs, and just take a chance on williams.

Pretty sure Shawne Williams is done for the season... and I'm hoping the HEAT sign Turiaf.

He's waaaay better than Dexter Pittman, and I'm sure he knows he'd see more minutes behind Joel Anthony than minutes behind Dwight Howard.

Terrence Williams is a good scorer, kind of like a Jamal Crawford for Atlanta last year- all offense, no efficiency.

I'd take a flier on him if I was a playoff team for 15 minutes a game.

Patty Mills to the Spurs. Now he will become a solid player.

Kaman isn't getting bought out. He's starting for them now and playing a big role. Besides, Stern would never allow it because there's a good chance he would come to the Heat.

I'm hoping this happens too. He's not awesome either, but would definitely be an upgrade over Pittman or Curry. He would have a chance at good minutes with us.

As a HEAT fan I'd love one of Anthony Carter or Derek Fisher and one of Ronny Turiaf or Jermaine O'Neal.

That's the crazy part... it just speaks how badly Pittman and Curry suck.

I think all of the owners or the majority of them need to approve Kaman's buyout and I don't think they will.

Turiaf is the best player avaliable right now, probably only 1 worth picking up solid back up center, adds defensive toughness unless a team wanted a prospect project like T.Will

i hope some more quality players r bought out but im not holding my breath

seems like the player that most fans want is terrance williams. turiaf was an ok player with the lakers but he has bounced a lot since then. me being a laker fan, i havent seen any players waived that i would be interested in.

kaman will not be waived, i am more then certain that he'll resign with hornets this off-season
