Hey LeBron, Phoenix would be a good place for you.

Re: NBA Season - 2013-2014

If Wade "sacrifices" and takes less, because Bosh is sure to do so, then the extra money would buy some better pieces to assemble an actual team, and Lebron is likely back. If not, I think he takes his cue, hopefully not in another Hollywood wannabe production.

As for Phoenix, the two-guard tandem makes that problematical, as Lebron wants the ball in his hands most of the time... don't you think?

He did, but he'll just re-sign on a shorter deal with the Heat. Same with Bosh. I would not be surprised to see Wade walk, though, given that he's breaking down more quickly than anyone expected.

Interesting.

I wonder if AnforME is in there sights?

He'll get paid by some team like Phoenix or the Pistons.

You underestimate the ability of NBA GMs to make stupid deals based upon name value.

Re: NBA Season - 2013-2014

Wade is due $20M next season and $22M the season after that. In his current shape, why would he give that up?

Yes, plus his injuries and age make it more likely he will re-sign with Miami, as I think someone has already mentioned.

Something else to consider concerning the Heat; Riley is intent on keeping their core together. With that in mind, it is hard for me to see him and Arison letting any of the big 3 walk.

Re: NBA Season - 2013-2014

Maybe Wade will negotiate with the Heat to opt out in exchange for a longer contract. Instead of $42M over two years, say $60M over four. The lower average salary would leave the Heat with more funds available in the near term to put players around the Big Three and increase their chances of another championship.

Good point...

The extension seems one way to go for a "win now" mentality I guess, although you're still gonna pay a seemingly over-the-hill wreck even more money in the end.

Philly is desperate for Wiggins and would be happy for Parker. Their nightmare right now is not having either. They can't go for Embiid. They have Noel now and just got out of the failure of the Bynum gamble. They can't take a risk on having two injury-prone big men on their roster.

I'm still holding out hope that they could tempt Cleveland with the 3 pick and Thad Young, but that seems unlikely if Embiid is as big a gamble for Cleveland as people are thinking, but, if Cleveland otherwise had wanted him, would be smart for them (since it would have been likely he'd be there at 3 so they'd get a free player out of it). But if Embiid is likely there in the teens, it's clearly a stupid trade, so it won't happen.
Dude, I just read the third recent mock draft that has the Sixers taking Embiid (assuming he falls to them). That doesn't seem possible, but unless these 3 guys, the latest of which is Mike Breshnahan of the L.A. Times, are completely out to lunch, and they could very well be, the Sixers may be set to roll the dice.
