Heat going Supernova! Lebron opts out.
Hey LeBron, Phoenix would be a good place for you.
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?
Did he really?
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.
Wade pass up the bucks? No way.
I wonder if AnforME is in there sights?
He'll get paid by some team like Phoenix or the Pistons.
Not that much money he won't, no way.
You underestimate the ability of NBA GMs to make stupid deals based upon name value.
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.
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.
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.
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.
They might. The injury completely changed the picture and made the price for the other two possibly too high. If Nerlens Noel can play power forward, it's a possibility. But I would have figured the Sixers wanted to make an impact right away and Embiid is obviously sidelined. Sixers fans are anxious for signs of improvement.
Wiggins, Parker, Embiid. So Embiid did not slip too far after all (and the Sixers did take him).
Apparently, Cleveland turned down an offer for the 3rd, 10th, and 32nd for the 1st
Embiid didn't look too thrilled with his landing spot...
There was a satellite delay
He hadn't even seen his name called when they cut to him.
Milwaukee Bucks send two draft picks to the Nets in exchange for Jason Kidd.
Way to spend two picks on a coach who doesn't want to coach and would have been fired by the Nets anyway after his failed putsch.
