They're just regurgitating the thing Bucher said yesterday that already has a thread...I think. Because Bucher hasn't said a damned thing since then. MySportsLegion don't have sources, they just regurgitate what the big writers tweet.

pretty brilliant for LeBron to opt out right?

does that allow them to sign another good player (like Lowry), then go into the luxury to sign/keep LeBron by using the Bird rights? the biggest problem with the Kobe contract isn't the dollar amount its the fact that he did it several months ago instead of waiting till the off season- spend all the money on other players- then go deep into luxury by giving Kobe what he wants using his Bird rights. right?

I like Lowry in Miami.

I do believe Lowry is coming to the HEAT, & the Raports are just trying to get something for him.

Next is Gortat.

Its one thing for a team to feel helpless when their FA wants to leave, but to aid them in doing so while receiving no assets is something the old knicks FO would do, not masai.

Agreed... What should the Raptors do, if Lowry has informed them his gone, so get something or nothing (if this report is even true)?

The HEAT are a wild card that other Gm's can't account for; their stars are willing to take less money. It puts everyone at a disadvantage when it comes to free agency.

Cole is a 2time champion... Stop being so disrespectful.

3yrs in the league, 3 Final's appearances... He can help any locker room he enters.

.

If lowry says hes going to leave and the HEAT offered norris cole and a draft pick( which is absolutely nothing) I'd let Lowry walk and let Miami figure out how to sign him. This is lowry's last chance to get a nice sized contract and I doubt hes going to look for a paycut considering he worked his tail off to up his value.

bleedprple&gold
06-27-2014, 07:34 PM
There is no way this could be imminent. Wade and Bosh haven't even decided if they are opting out yet so the Heat have no idea how much they can even offer Lowry at the moment. Total b.s.

Good thought. I agree w this. Nothing in return is the same thing as Cole and a pick in return

But I do think that Lowry is heading to Miami, but not by a trade. HEAT will sign him outright.

Why would Toronto feel the need to help out the Heat? What the hell would their draft picks be worth anyway? That is unless LBJ has already made up his mind to leave town and Toronto somehow know that.

Nothing lol but Lowry is worth much more than a backup PG and a pick that is almost guaranteed to be in the 26-30 range

With Jame opting out couldn't they just sign Lowry outright and then use James' bird rights to go over the cap?

Something is better then nothing... If Lowry wants to join the HEAt he can just be sign clear and free.



That is unless LBJ has already made up his mind to leave town and Toronto somehow know that.

This just doesn't make sense...

This is why I don't factor him into anything in this free agency period.

I have also stated, that the HEAT will target Melo, Lowry & Gortat.

Because their is no reason for any of us to waste are time on what Lbj is going to do.

Agreed, but if he already made up his mind on coming to the HEAT, and the Raptors no that; what do you want them to do?

I know that... But he can bring a championship mentality into any locker room he steps foot in... :laugh:

Not really. Heat still has a 20million dollar cap hold on each of the big 3. They have two options:

1. Sign new contracts to the big 3 to adjust their cap holds
2. Heat renounce their bird rights and the cap holds come off their books.

Either way, the big 3 have to be sorted out before Lowry can gotten.

Bucher is hot garbage. His article went on to add in that the plan is also to add Melo so one of the original 3 would have to leave...how awkward would that have been for Bosh when LeBron, Wade, and Melo went up to him and say "get yo *** back to Jurassic Island *****"
