Since the initial 2010 Offseason thread has over 500 comments, the suggestion was made to open a new thread and retire the old one.
The 2010 NBA offseason is about to hit it into high gear starting with tonight’s draft. Then on July 1st the 2010 FA Frenzy will be underway. The list is large though not hugely deep at the top. An (almost) objective of the 10 top FA not in order and the potential some others may still opt out. Where will these FA’s land after July 1st?
1. LeBron James
2. Dwyane Wade
3. Chris Bosh
6. Joe Johnson
8. Ray Allen
9. Rudy Gay
10. David Lee
The moment is coming up that the Knicks have been dreaming of for 2 years. Are they successful or do they whiff? And if so, what do they do?
With $33m in available cap space will the HEAT be successful in signing 2 top FA in addition to DWade? Thus making their own Dream Team… plus 9 other guys named Hank and Ted and Frank.
Can the Cavs K.I.T (keep it together, keep it together)?
Do the Celtics blow it up or buy more paper clips & duct tape; strap, tape & staple everybody back together for one more run?
Do the hated Lakers sneak in and steal away another star player because those stinkin’ weasels are the Lakers and they can?
Also, is Chris Paul is suddenly in play; will he tip the balance in the draft & FA frenzy?
What about the Nugs? Entering into tonight’s draft there are teams with multiple 1st round picks; OKC, Minnesota & Memphis each have three 1st round picks they are currently holding. Plus other teams have their draft picks for sale or trade.
