    I get it that Lowry wants to win, but with this being his potential last big contract does he want to go to a team that will probably be giving him under market value for the chance to win? Where's the sleazy agent in his ear about taking the money when you need them?

    If Kyle does leave we need to get another starting PG more so than Bosh. GV does not cut it.

    i hope this isn't true. i don't think miami gets better by losing bosh though. i think a bosh for lowry swap makes them weaker. a bosh for melo swap is nice for them though.

    i really hope kyle stays.

    WTF is my response if Raps did this ?? Why give the Heat the PG required to make them stronger ?? As we saw last night what late 1st round pics get you ( Brazilian projects ) we will be just giving away Lowry for nothing .. As for Bosh ... Where is the Cap space to get him ?

    I would rather give him to Lakers in a sign and trade and get the Lakers 1st round pic ... Lowry has a history of not being able to stay healthy and put him with a old Kobe and you got a lottery pic for the Raps .. Lowry for Nash + 1st round unprotected lottery pic

    The Lakers can sign Lowry and keep the pick. So good luck convincing them to give an unprotected pick. Now if the Lakers somehow sign LeBron or Melo and run out of cap space, then it might become more realistic.

    Or the Lakers want Love next summer then getting Lowry in a sign and trade gives them better cap flexiablty ..

    Getting Bosh and Cole is highway robbery compared to the realistic scenario of Lowry walking for nothing. #Think

    Obviously everything in Miami hinges on LeBron.

    BUt say LeBron resigns, Lowry could be signed and traded with Bosh going to a third team?????


    Masai is no stranger to 3 and 4 team deals.


    You know what up and coming team could use a stretch PF/C and has an incredible training staff who also just happened to have their stretch 4 opt out of a contract? Phoenix.


    Then there are the Rockets if they lose on on LBJ and Melo. Maybe they have interest in Bosh?


    I could make a case ford LA Lakers, Charlotte (although they have cap space to sign outright so not very strong), Sacramento.



    Two weeks of new speculation begins!

    Truer words have not been spoken.
    In order for Miami to have room to sign a better cast of players Lebron/Bosh and Wade have to ALL opt out and ALL take lesser money. Lebron has. The other guys have not done so. If they all don't do it then there isn't the money to sign Kyle or anyone else really.
    Lebron has put his money where his mouth is by opting out. He just might walk if Bosh and Wade don't do the same thing and open up space for another player. Shabaz Napier ain't that player. Its not one but two 40M$ decisions to be made shortly. Money talks and if one or both of Wade and Bosh don't opt then there will likely be an LBJ-less Miami.

    Why would Kyle sign to play with a broken down SG and PF on the downside of his career ?

    Why on earth would Miami do this? They would have zero bigs aside from Anderson, and losing Bosh's floor stretching ability would absolutely kill the team's offence. This only makes sense if Bosh has stated that he's going to leave, which is basically the exact opposite of everything he's told the media. I don't believe this for a second.

    I'm waiting for Ric Bucher to apologize for his account being hacked or to voluntarily enter a rehab facility.


    Then again.... maybe he is right! Crazier things have happened.... well, not since 2010 but crazier things have happened.

    i think he got drunk, posted the bosh bit, woke up this morning and slapped his forehead and is now running with it rather than admit he shouldn't have been near a computer after drinking so much bourbon

    None of this makes a bit of sense salary wise, which fucking matters.

    Bosh makes $43M over the next 2 years. Lowry will make about that over the next 4 years. Bosh would have to opt out and agree to a $10M per year pay cut, for the privilege of leaving the championship contneder and going back to Toronto. Tell me why in the fucking world Bosh would do this? Seriously? A $10M pay cut to leave the Heat.

    And now Melo is supposed to go to Miami too, upping the impossibility of the math to new heights. Bucher was fired from ESPN for a reason, it's because he's an ass clown.

    Bucher is obviously looking for twitter hits. Mention the Heat and Raptors in a couple of messages and the internet will go nuts despite the legitimacy of the posts.

    Bosh had nothing nice to say about T.O on his way out the door and since he has been with the Heat ... His ego loves South Beach ..

    I do think Lowry agent is just trying to get more money from T.O .. It is the same thing about teams trying to get funding for their arena and use moving the franchise to get more money from the government

    I'm guessing Lowry will go to Miami for Norris Cole + few picks with Bosh going to a third team either the Rockets or the Dallas Mavs.

    Wasn't that before Dwight though? Can't see Houston still being interested.
