    Apparently Scott stayed up till midnight but he doesn't seem to have anything for us.


    Maybe he's at Lance's house and they have the windows open listening to the crickets?

    Is this new?

    Sixers, Rockets Agree to Lin Trade?

    By Basketball Insiders |
    Updated: July 9, 2014

    While the NBA is in a holding pattern until LeBron James decides where he will play this upcoming season, the Sixers have done some work behind the scenes. A source tells Liberty Ballers that the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia have agreed in principle to send point guard Jeremy Lin to the Sixers, as well as a first round pick.

    I hope he is and he tells us he just saw Lance glance past a window dancing to Purple Rain. Lance seems like a total Prince guy, part of why I love him.

    haven't updated myself on Houston's financials, bu that means they're gonna let Parsons head to Dallas right?

    Bosh would be straight up stupid to not go to Houston, probably even if Lebron stays in Miami
    I guess they could technically go over the LT to retain Parsons.....but yeah, it's likely one or the other.

    right, I mean I guess they could still keep him, but that'd be some hellacious tax bills

    Nope.....Agness was there the day before and took a "Before" picture of Lance's house.....and now he's waiting for the moving trucks to take an "After" picture.

    I've thought he was leaving all along, but now I have to think LeBron is staying in Miami. He's not even meeting with other teams.

    I mean, I'm hardly what one would call a die hard Lance supporter, but what about that statement was so outlandish? Lance defends better than either of those guys, rebounds better, distributes better, ****s with LeBron better...I mean really, those guys are shooters/scorers. Mayhaps this will teach Lance a lesson in controlling his emotions. If he didn't have character concerns, crazy max offers would probably be coming his way too.

    What can Chicago offer him? Up to 15m assuming they make no other signings? I did hear the Chicago wasn't interested in meeting his 10+m price tag.

    Is it? Lebron to Cleveland, Melo to NY, Dirk to Dallas, Bosh to Houston, Wade to the morgue, unless I'm forgetting someone that's the top tier. This is when the Lance stuff gets really interesting.

    That morgue team needs shooters. They were ice cold last year.

    I don't think LeBron necessarily has to meet with the Cavs in person to join them...he knows the owner from the years together, probably knows and has talked with every player on the team, his agent has probably heard everything that he needs to know.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    That's what I was thinking. The fact that he left the Miami meeting with no closure tells me he is at least considering the possibility.

    Not one bit surprised.

    It sucks when you have to resort to Lance as Plan D.

    What I find odd is that it appears that LeBron hasn't made any direct contact with the Cavs FO/Management himself.....it appears to be handled all through his Agent.

    I guess that LeBron owes it to Riley to at least meet with him directly to hear his last second pitch....but you have to wonder why he himself hasn't talked directly with Gilbert and Dan Griffin to hear from them what they intend to do.

    I think part of it would be very annoying for LeBron, Dan Gilbert would be apologizing, kissing his feet and ***, and being wined and dined in a place that he lives at and knows...not like he's going to some new city. The only bit would be meeting the coach and I would bet Blatt has been able to talk to LeBron.

    So wait, are you saying he doesn't have any sources he is just guessing? No way. His sources might turn out to be wrong, but he is not just making it up from thin air
    imawhat may have different reasons, but for me it's Sheridan being stridently confident about something inherently unknowable. From other credible reports, we know a) that his agent and family want Cleveland, and b) LeBron himself has kept his thoughts close. So unless his source is LeBron, he's just guessing or else he's relying on the agent's word (which was already widely reported by others).

    It's similar with his lockout reporting. He stated with absolutely certainty of the lockout ending on a certain date, when that clearly is very unpredictable. He was certain right up until his self imposed deadline passed, then he was all mea culpa. I stopped following him around that point.

    Maybe. But I've thought all along that Chicago is the dangerous one, along with Charlotte. Didn't buy the Celtics, Mavs rumors. I hadn't really considered Miami, but maybe they will go after Lance if they lose out on some of the Big 3.

    To be restricted he'd have to either have 3 or less years experience or be on a rookie scale contract, obviously this was his 4th year and being a second rounder he wasn't on a rookie scale deal. It isn't something that can be negotiated on a case by case basis. He's just a regular ole veteran free agent.
    Yup. The rule is, players with 3 years or less of experience become RFA. First round picks are a special case who get RFA after 4 years.

    Also, agree that Houston declining Parsons' option has backfired on them. They were betting that by letting him out a year early they can re-sign him on the cheap, but instead they're now served with a max contract. Good times.
