D Will
J Johnson
G Wallace
ANYONE
D Howard

That's a pretty nasty starting 5, regardless of who it's filled out with.

I dunno, I think I'd take DWill and Howard over James and Wade and I think Johnson and Bosh are about equal. It's becoming more and more of a PG league and the Heat still lack an elite PG. Plus Gerald Wallace is better than whoever the 4th best player on Miami is.


Thought I heard a while back that Miami was going to go after Nash. It would make sense for both parties, assuming Nash is willing to forego money in exchange for a shot at a title...but since the start of free agency there's been no talk of it. Furthermore, other than his ties with Colangelo I'm baffled as to what Nash sees in Toronto.

Well then, looks like the job will fall to a 6'9" 26 year-old Bosnian guy.

Probably a better choice than me.

By the way, Jason Terry signs a two year deal with Boston.

Nets get Reggie Evans in a sign and trade from Clippers..

I'm a fan of Reggie Evans. He can't score in the least bit, but watching him rebound is impressive. Excellent bench guy IMO.

Darn. Was hoping it would work out for Jordan Williams to start with that lineup.

I hope they get the arena built in time. I went by there while I was in New York two weeks ago and...let's just say it didn't look ready.

I think he went to Atlanta in the Johnson deal.

Thanks DJ, totally missed that Jordan was part of that (also Farmar, Morrow, and Petro).

He did....and no way does he take any minutes from Al Horford.

Nets also signed PF Mirza Teletovic...He could be an option to start for them.

Big, tall PF who is a score-first guy...supposed to be really good from 3 point lead.

Nets are going to be good but they aren't going to have a good enough bench and they'll need a year to work through chemistry issues.

Lakers get Nash!

I take back any bad thing I've ever said about him!

Go Lakers!

Gotta feel a little bad for Steve Blake. Not going to start a game anytime soon.

He's not an NBA starter.

I love Stevie Blake but if he's your starting PG you have problems.

Jameer Nelson says he has agreed to a deal to stay in Orlando, but didn't say for how long/much. Seems odd...on one hand I don't see why the Magic would want to keep him, unless it's on a really cheap and/or short deal. On the other, why would he want to stay on the cheap with a franchise that is clearly entering a re-building phase, if not this season, then next?

Mentioned this in the Nash thread, but Jason Kidd is apparently going to the Knicks. And Dallas' brutal offseason continues. Looks like karma is catching up with Mark Cuban for all the griping he does over the officiating.

Looks like Brandon Roy will finally play for the team that drafted him.

Agent Greg Lawrence confirms earlier report: Brandon Roy to Minnesota for two years and in "ballpark" of $10.4 million

Now the talk is Atlanta is going to go after Howard.

I was wondering why they were practically giving away Johnson.


Think of him like one of the many good MLB players that have been overpaid which you have advocated the O's going after.

Except in this case, there's a salary cap.
