    On your list I like Haslem and Amir. Both are high energy players with good athletic ability and potential. I've followed Haslem since he helped Florida win the NCAA title. He is a good fit in this team and I would love to see him here.

    However, I feel that if we can get Bosh in a sign and trade deal for lee then it should be done.

    F/C-Haslem would be the perfect Tandem "with" F/C-Lee in a lineup, when we have Barron come off the bench.

    David Lee is a must "RESIGN" player!!!!

    @Ponder: Haslem never won an NCAA championship, he was not on the same teams as Noah, Horford, Brewer, etc.


    @Kiya: As much as I'd like to see Lee re-signed, it just isn't in the plans. Too risky, and if we do re-sign Lee, it means we won't be adding anyone too attractive.

    Exactamundo. Must-sign. Revolutionize our backcourt and optimize (legitimize?) a prescence of Lee (or Bosh)

    Defensive wizardry from a big. And he can hustle.

    Thomas is the best but with his attitude I doubt Mike D would sign off on it since he hates egotistic players(Marbury) and benches them for no reason but the fact that he hates ego's...maybe because Mike D has the biggest Ego in the NBA? Maybe.

    Scola is the next David Lee, all offensive finesse, good rebounding, no defense whatsoever.

    Amir Johnson is a backup but a nice back up for defense

    Haslem is a back up but makes the open shot, kind of like a older Earl Barron

    Gooden is ok but just too ugly for NY

    Thomas is a go for me i like dude he's athletic and plays D plus he wont cost us as much and his offense is getting better each year and im sure he's going to come into next season improved dude is a taller more low-post/defensive Marion basically marion at the 4 if that makes any sense loll. i'd be down for this guy to come in and be our new 4 plus he's young and thats what we need.

    It doesnt matter, we have to give Lee a 6 year contract on July 1st.
    Whether Lee chose the next team 5 yr offer within the 15 day period, at least we would have a chance in getting something out the deal if Lee wants a 6 yr contract.

    There are so many teams Lee could sign with to lift that teams record or playoff status at the PF spot.
    Lee showcased his performance with us for two seasons...

    Young NBA ready talent needs a developing coaching staff which we dont have.
    If we dont resign our All-Star David Lee, while making a move to get him a starting center, and signing a starting SG so we could move Wilson Chandler to the starting SF spot, we could become the laughing stock of the 2010 big FA market.

    Just wondering Kiy, Who of the "Big Name" FA's do you think is going to end up here? I personally don't think LeBrone,Stodomire,Dirk and Wade are going anywhere I also think Bosh will end up in Miami With Wade so that leaves us who ? J.Johnson at the Max ? I'd rather pass on him at the $$$ he's gonna get. Just wondering what you think our realistic line-up will look like?

    First, I think its unrealistic to think that none of those players will come here. Lebron is most likely going to the Knicks and Bosh is most likely going to play with Lebron if that team has cap room to sign him. Lebron staying in Cleveland is a long shot at this point, and New York is more attractive than Chicago.

    Lets say none of that happens, here's what I think they should do:

    Sign/Trade Lee for Tony Parker (13.5)
    Sign Brendan Haywood (8 mil)
    Sign Luis Scola/Carlos Boozer (10 mil)
    Sign Raja Bell (4 mil)

    Comes out to about 54 mil...

    Parker
    Bell
    Gallinari
    Boozer
    Haywood

    Douglas
    Walker
    Chandler
    Barron
    2 2nd round picks

    Drew Gooden is the perfect role player! If we had any money left over I would sign him to come off the bench and play the 4/5
