I hope everyone understand that lowering our Salary Cap and not having a Super-Star and a average Star on our roster when lowering our salary cap does not give us "Cap Flexibility" it makes us an expansion team.
Here is what "Cap-Flexibility" means
Orlando Magic had Howard, Turk, and Nelson when they lowered their cap.
Phoenix Suns had Marian, Amare, and Joe Johnson when they lowered their cap.
Boston Celtics had Super-Star Paul Pierce and a long roster of upcomming young star players with rookie contracts to be flexible in the trading market to get a veteran Super-Star and Star player.
Which we may see alot of teams with a young roster (Portland) get succesful overnight doing in the 2010 offseason (sign and trade) or 2009 trading deadline.
The list of potential free agents in 2010 is deep and spectacular. There are superstars:
Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Tracy McGrady and Dirk Nowitzki.
There are perennial All-Stars:
Joe Johnson, Amare Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer, Michael Redd, Ray Allen, Josh Howard, Manu Ginóbili, Jermaine O'Neal and Steve Nash. And there are high-level role players: Luis Scola, Tyson Chandler, Stephen Jackson, Mehmet Okur, Hedo Turkoglu, Mike Miller, Udonis Haslem and Marcus Camby.
