Rose doesn't recruit. He doesn't like it.
He works out with Love and Westbrook each off-season and he still doesn't try to recruit Love to Chicago.

Seems Melo is staying in NY.

Bring over Mirotic, amnesty Boozer and add Pau. Solid club at the end of the day.

If he was staying in NY he would have done so already. Even the Knicks brass admits through sources that the only team they fear with regards to Melo is the Bulls.

I just don't see him turning down 30 mil. Maybe in a sign and trade though

Looks like Melo doesnt care about winning, he wont win a title if he stays in NY.

May not in Chi but much better chance there than NY.

Although the Bulls might be better off getting Mirotic, adding Pau, and some better depth instead of gutting the team for Melo..

Houston is after Bosh now according to Stein. They don't think Melo is leaving NY.

In a year, the Knicks will have a lot of cap space, and some good shooters. It's not totally a lost cause

Dallas has had cap space for 3 straight years.

Will miss on Deron, Dwight, and now Melo most likely.

It's no lock a guy signs there, but Melo being there probably helps.

Still stand by it they wont win a title if Melo stays.

Bosh should definately want a bigger deal.

He isnt used properly in Miami, took the biggest concession since going there.

Other than Houston, i dont know who would go for him.

If the Mavs werent stupid, they could go after Bosh.

Calderon-Ellis-Marion-Dirk-Bosh would be lethal offensively.

Tucker is primarily a 1 sided player. You simply have to bring more to the table then just being a good defender. And his defense isn't even truly all that stifling. He's too short to be a shot blocker. Doesn't have very good hops or athleticism at all. He's not fast. He's moderately strong but he's not a beast. In order to be an elite defender, you need to add all those things to your game. He's not consistent at all on offense and doesn't really have much of an offensive threat besides hitting the occasional corner 3. Like you said, great bench guy, but not a starter. Problem is, he makes too much to be a bench guy. They Suns are going after 2 max contract players. If they can get 2 to commit, they'll cut Tucker. Green isn't going anywhere. Sure he's inconsistent but this was his first year in the NBA where he's had any kind of real minutes. He showed EXTREME flashes of absolute dominance on the court, where you would be saying, whoa, that dude is the best player on the floor. You would never hear anybody say that about Tucker. But, if we only sign 1 max contract guy, they will keep Tucker. But IMO, there's no way he's a starter next year, absolutely no way.

They can add a max level FA and make some other moves but their biggest asset would be their 2015 first rounder that they cannot trade because they dealt their 2014 to the Nuggs and owe their 2016 in a pick swap.
They have no viable assets until 2017 when they can trade as they wish.

Potential FA's with ETO's or Player options for 2015
Kevin Love,Jeff Green, Al Jefferson, Gerald Henderson, Monta Ellis, Roy Hibbert, David West, Jared Dudley, Thaddeus Young, Goran Dragic

Unrestricted FA's.
Rajan Rondo, LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay, Anderson Varejao, Tyson Chandler, Arron Afflalo, Omer Asik, Jeremy Lin, DeAndre Jordan,, Marc Gasol, Lou Williams.

Love and Young are the only ones of the first group likely to reach FA with being traded for and extended or simply extended by their current teams.

Rondo and Afflalo are the only 2 of the second group that are likely to turn down money to explore FA.

So what exactly is the cap going to do to help them?

Chris Bosh's reps have made recent calls on market to reconfirm that max slots would be available to him, sources tell Yahoo. Answers: Yes.

Wade tweeted loyalty...haha haha.

See, this is why the new NBA CBA is important. They all set up their deals and played teams last time in 2010. They gave Riley enough time by pretending to vacillate on their decision.

This year no one held up the market for them. Other FA's signed or are having serious visits with teams ready to offer.
Melo isn't interested in Miami and isn't planning with them so there is another major FA that teams can chase.

Bottom line, that BS will never happen again.

Melo may decide today, some LA rumors.

Bulls if he's smart, NY if his heart is there, LA if thats where his wife wants to go.

He isn't going to Chicago because he's stupid.

I'd rather have him not go to LA since LA fans don't deserve positive things.

So let him just rot in NY like he is already doing.

I don't follow basketball closely... but 9news last night said the Nuggs are pursuing Lebron.

Is this true?

Don't be shocked if he ends up in LA. Him and Kobe are buddies and there is a high level of respect there. His wife would also be another obvious reason.

Would mean he doesnt care about winning, Lakers may not even be a playoff team with how deep the West is.

SA re-signed Diaw, clear favorites now with Diaw/Mills back.

If they added Gasol or someone else, it's over.

Diaw comes back for 3 more years. That's awesome news. Kyle Anderson can learn from him. Parker and Diaw will have to speak English to each other so he can understand what they sayin though.

Gasol keeps talking about how much respect he's got for the system, pop, and players. He'd have to go mid level though that's a lot of money he'd be walking away from.

LA could land both LeBron and Carmelo.

Thats all OKC can offer too but he'd get much more playing time with OKC than SA.

Chi (if the Melo reports are true), and LAL could offer him more than the MLE.

Although i'm not sure why Chi is targeting him when they have Gibson primed to breakout with Mirotic coming over maybe as well.

They should target a SG/SF rather than Pau imo.

Knicks would be way over the cap if Melo signed for the max.

Melo to decide on Monday.

LAL or Knicks if reports are true, the two worst spots he could go lol.

He aint winning **** with either team.

Bulls/Houston would scare fans of contending teams.
