Not 100% on this at all...So anybody feel free to correct me who KNOWS for SURE. But this is what I've gathered from people here on OS...


They have money now to sign two Max deals.
They have Eddy Curry's contract, which they can use as trade bait, as people would want his expiring and all the dough that comes with it.
They can sign someone for the MLE.
They can sign someone for the veterans minimum (T-Mac anyone...)

So they would be able to pick up Bron and Bosh. In addition to about 3 or 4 other pieces. To go along with solid players in Douglas, Gallo and Chandler.

I think that's what the thinking is...But, like I said, I'm not 100% on it. So...

Obviously a sign and trade would need to be done to get Bosh, if we assume LeBron signs outright.

Can you do a UFA for UFA sign and trade?
What are we going to trade though? We have no assets outside of Curry's expiring and Gallo. I don't know, do you think the Raps would take Curry and Gallo for Bosh?

I think they still have the cap hold on David Lee though...I THINK.So the only way to get Bosh is to S&T Lee and filler for Bosh.

Can't use the MLE if you're under the cap.

Because BC has a weird infatuation with Italians, he'd probably take Gallo without hesitation.

Ok, this is where the salary cap starts getting over my head. Would this affect the cap differently than if we signed Bosh as a regular UFA?

O, Ok.

So even if they sign two max deals and add a vet, would they still be under the cap, and therefore not be able to use the MLE?

HMMM..Really not sure man...Even I get confused at this point with regards to the cap...

Realgm probably will have some posts regarding this...I'll see if I can find something.

That's what I was assuming before but I just don't know how the cap would work in that situation.

I REALLY hope Lebron stays away from Chicago. I don't like his "entitled" attitude and I think he'll infect guys like Rose and Noah.
