Who are the teams looking to GRIZZ it up and shed some salary to avoid the luxary tax?
We have 4M, and The contracts for Walton, Boobie & Casspi all set to expire with a total of just over 13M
CJ Miles is on a 2 year 2.25M contract as well.

Somebody else has to be up for a similar maneuver.

Young player & draft picks...SEND THEM OVER.
Hamilton &/or QMiller from Denver wouldn't be a bad target..They are around 6M over the cap.

That's what I'm thinking. With Walton, Gibson and Casspi all expiring we should be able to maneuver at the deadline and get some assets, even using our many picks if need be.

It's not like we are gonna keep that many rookies on our roster anyway. Might as well trade some of those picks for higher draft picks and quality pieces long-term.
well i know the cavs will only have two first rd picks this year. Their own and the Miami pick. I dont see the Lakers making the playoffs and I dont see the Kings finishing well enough to get their pick. If we dont have to include some future picks than I wouldnt do it. Also if we hang out to those picks it could give us enough ammo to trade up a spot or two to get a player we really want

I don't like Deshaun Thomas for that Cavs team.
He can score, but he will be a chucker while being a defensive liability.

It would be Jamison all over again...But less skilled with basket making.

Love him for the Buckeyes...Hate him for the Cavs.
He needs to go to a Vet heavy team, and learn a true team style of BBall.


His defense has improved this year. If he was 6'9+ I'd be all for it.

But a 6'7 PF with no elite athleticism? No thanks.

Thomas is the definition of a tweener forward at the next level. He's not tall or long enough to play down low and he isn't athletic enough to play on the perimeter, at least not defensively.

He kind of reminds me of a poor mans Michael Beasley at the next level. I don't see him ever being much more than a rotational journeyman in the NBA that will have a few big scoring nights when someone's in foul trouble or his team is out of contention so he gets bigger minutes and his shot is falling from beyond the arc.

What are all of your thoughts on the possibility about that one player possibly returning to Cleveland? I'm guessing you'd be quick to dust the ash off of your old burned jerseys and welcome him back as if nothing ever happened.

I gotta say, I can finally relate to what you all went through in the years leading up to 2010 free agency. That player will still be in Miami for the rest of this year and all of next year and everyone is already talking about him leaving. I'd obviously like him to stay, but I really won't care too much since I was never his biggest fan anyways. However, it's so annoying to constantly see articles all over the internet and speculation of his departure on ESPN. If he leaves then it is what it is, but is it really necessary to start talking about this two years prior to it even becoming a possibility? So annoying.

All I can say is get used to it fast. If you are annoyed by what you are hearing now then you are in big trouble. This is just the absolute miniscule tip of the Titanic sized iceberg you are going to see and hear in the future. The closer his contract gets to expiring, the more frequent and louder the rumors become. If I were you, I would prepare myself and expect him to leave so that you do not have the type of dissapointment that so many Cavaliers fans had. If he ends up staying then you can chalk it up as a pleasent surprise.

Peace!!

As a Cavs fan, you're right. I would be quick to forgive LeBron, as adding him would automatically make us one of the top 2 or 3 teams in the NBA(speculation of course, but with our core and how we're set up in the draft the next few years, it's not a stretch at all to say)

Don't get me wrong, I hope he stays, but I don't care if he leaves. I have no emotional attachment to LBJ whatsoever. If D-Wade leaves I'd be devastated, but LeBron can do whatever he wants. It's just annoying to hear the media constantly talking about 2014 free agency when they should be talking about the 2013 NBA season.

Was just gonna ask if I was the only one who thought he was terribad.

Beat me to it.

Speights has been a breath of fresh air.

I hate going to games and watching Zeller nail every pre game jumper he takes and then miss 80% in the game.

It pisses me off

He has potential to be a Z type outside shooter. God I hope it materializes.


I miss Z Crying or Very sad

Seems that giving him a new contract really took his edge off.
Sad after how decent he looked last year.

I hate saying Alonzo is lazy because I never heard of him being lazy. I just don't like the mental mistakes he's making.

I like how Tristan's offense is progressing.

Thompson is averaging 18.0 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.6 bpg, on 59% from the field over the last five. It just goes to show you how important spacing truly is.

Definitely, which is why I want a midrange-3pt and defensive specialist at SF

When/If Lebron leaves the Heat won't be relevant again for the foreseeable future.
