Hey all,

Here is a look at the teams with cap space in 2009 - now that the trade deadline is behind us:

Interesting to think about the implications facing the Lakers with Lamar and to a lesser extent, Ariza.

Thanks

Grizzlies have tons. I wonder if they'll be signing anyone for next season.

Good topic. I won't be surprised if Portland tries to land Rasheed or LO to boost their frontcourt.

I doubt Portland is interested in Odom. They have Aldridge and Oden up front. I think everyone knows by now that Odom can't play the 3 effectively. So my guess is Portland will want to use (or save) that money for a pg they desperately need.

If Detroit can't get Boozer, that is team I fear will go after Lamar. Emplay thinks they will go after Boozer and that makes sense, but if that fails I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see them throw some big money at Lamar. I hope not.

Sheed was kind of face of Jailblazers mentality right or not, but he was who people thought of during that time.

We have Bynum and Pau. Portland would like to get some experience upfront and they tried to get Amare. Oden and Aldridge are very young still. They would love to take away from the Lakers no doubt

Yeah he was but with an experienced coach in McMillan they have now I think he would fit in besides they would only have to offer him a one year deal say 5-10 million I would think

dude - they're not going to pay sheed $10 mil to come back - no way - and they want to add a big name to their core - not a short-term guy like sheed

They want experience and 5 million was a part of the range. Sheed will get that at least.

I see Sheed signing with the Spurs for the MLE, no joke.

Odom I think will resign with the Lakers for 10 million per year.

Boozer will sign with Detroit.

Those are my predictions.

If Detroit can't get Boozer, that is team I fear will go after Lamar. Emplay thinks they will go after Boozer and that makes sense, but if that fails I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see them throw some big money at Lamar. I hope not.


Nah. I think they would rather save that big money for a position of need. They really need an effective pg or sf. They have some nice players at those two positions, but not stabilizing forces.

No just Ariza, Odom and Shannon Brown. Emplay I have seen Shannon listed as unrestricted FA, but ESPN has him a resricted FA. Which one is it on Shannon? Thanks.

Why would Portland bring back Sheed? :mellow:

The Blazers are looking to upgrade at PG and SF.

emplay, did you hear anything about Arenas and Butler going to the Blazers at the trade deadline?

brown is restricted - anyone with less than 4 years of experience becomes an RFA. After this year he'll have had 3 years experience - so RFA it is

That is a real good possibility. Spurs have been smart with there money so they can do that even in their small market.
