    Melo would be welcomed anywhere he went, but that changes once the season starts and everyone turns on Melo at the first sign of adversity for not being lebron.

    If he goes back to the Knicks he's a passenger on a sinking ship. If he goes to Miami, he's the captain of a sinking ship.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    We need someone like wintermute or xIndyFan to help clarify what the Bulls Salary Cap situation will be and how a S&T of Boozer for Gasol would affect their ability to sign Free Agents.

    I don't know if a S&T of Gasol puts them closer to the Salary Cap or not. I'm simply trying to figure out if they will still have the ability to offer Lance a $10+ Mil Contract offer.

    The answer is no unless they start dumping a bunch of other players besides Boozer

    well that depends on how much Gasol is making. If they amnesty Boozer and take him off the books, they will have 14.77 million in free cap space. So unless they got Gasol for super cheap I don't think they'd be able to afford Lance.

    Utah has officially matched. Lance's most likely suitor is now open. Come on, MJ. You know you need shooting!

    Yeah. Pau reportedly turned down $10m per year from the Lakers and $11m per year from the Hawks. If the Bulls' offer is anywhere close then they probably don't have the money to outbid the Pacers anymore. Plus they want to sign Mirotic as well.

    Looks like the Bulls are close to completing a S&T for Gasol:

    Damn, was hoping he'd stay in the West.
    Gasol doesn't scare me too much at 34 years old but in the East he'd probably be dominant.

    Is Taj Gibson this generations Antonio Davis? He would be a starter most anywhere else. I know he produces regardless but still.

    Is it lowballing if its the same contact everyone else is offering? It should be interesting what happens with the 2nd and 3rd level FAs now that the bigger dominoes have fallen

    I fully expect Lance to end up in Charlotte.

    Not a bad situation. Decent up and coming team where he can be ball dominant and pound the rock for 20 seconds of the shot clock.

    They'll overpay for him and so be it. Love the kid, but he probably deserves to get paid and it wont be, and shouldnt be, by us.

    Should be interesting.

    I'm really beginning to think Lance is not going to get a better offer. Teams are wary of him. I think the commonly held view around the league front offices is that he was the one who had the most contribution to the Pacers derailment. They seen how he played after getting the all-star snub and that was about the same time the Pacers started to struggle. There is enough film on him to arrive at this conclusion. Lance was making tough shots last year while passing up open teammates.

    Thanks for this, as it is exactly right.

    Somehow everyone has expectations that the Pacers will have Plan B fully in place, announced, and signed before even finding out if Plan A is coming through or not. The irony is that the reason folks are worried about Plan A is that no one else was saying what they would do until their own Plan As either materialized or moved on.

    We'll find out what Plan B is if Plan A fails.

    Knight's better than Hill though. At least he has a pulse.
    That is significantly undervaluing Hill lol Really starting to question if you watch basketball. Daniels and Terrence Jones for West? gtfo

    It was such an under-rated signing. Not only is he a good SG, he gives us wing depth if Lance stays, and gives us an option if Lance bolts.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    If you loved him you wouldn't be saying he dribbled for 20 seconds of the shot clock.

    the same Charlotte he turned down a multi-year extension to get out of so he could come here and almost kill his career?

    Those were the Bobcats, these are the Hornets. Maybe he doesn't realize it's the same team.
