    Lee will most certainly get more than $7 million this season. The plethora of teams with cap space almost guarantee it. Whether he deserves it or not is a different question.

    i have a bad feeling that if the lakers lose to the c**tics, LA is gonna make a hard push for bosh, dangling bynum in return...and that gives me the heeby-jeebies. i'd REALLY like to see him play for at least a couple months after properly rehabbing his knee, but that ain't gonna happen. he's pretty much greg oden at this point (albeit, with a better offensive game, and slightly worse defensive/rebounding), except he's already on his first gargantuan contract. if he's the bynum from the first couple games of the finals...that'd be great. otherwise...

    arenas. just scary...too much hassle, too much money, too much baggage, too much wear/tear on that body.

    lee - in pretty much any other system, i'd be all for it, but pairing him & bargs together...yikes. plus, we'd have to hear about how he steals boards from andrea all season...

    okafor - ick. might be an even worse contract than hedo's. i could live with him only if the raps are able to rid themselves of both hedo & jose (not necessarily in the same deal, just getting those contracts off the books).

    rip - ditto...he seems kinda/sorta/maybe...done? still an effective spot-up shooter, and he works harder than anyone not named ray allen to get open for shots, but his small frame has taken a bigger pounding over the years than many probably expect. just not a good fit in TO

    prince - a couple years ago, i would've jumped at the chance to land him, but backs are iffy, and his contract is pretty onerous. btw - is joe dumars alive? am i the only one who feels like he hit a grand slam in his first at-bat, and has been living off that while batting .193 since?

    i don't think there's much doubt that he 'deserves' more than $7M (how much more is debatable), and i don't doubt that there will be teams (those who miss out on the top-2 tiers of FAs) lining up to put his name on a contract. if ppl on here don't have much issue with bargs averaging ~$10M for the next 5 years (since that's the 'going rate'), then how could anyone legitimately argue lee is 'worth' any less? he's a more efficient scorer, an exponentially better rebounding, and his defense sucks ass.

    What's your beef with Caron?

    I think, in the right circumstances, he can be a very solid starting wing.

    Obviously he's not the star of a team, but he is certainly a great complementary piece who plays solid D and can knock down some shots.
    I don't have anything against him. I just don't think he is a winner.

    He was scoring in Knicks and that really does not count. He was also rebounding in a knick team which on one else rebounds.

    I am not a fan of AB and think he needs to do alot more to improve. But in a league that AB makes 10 a year, LEE should not even make 8 and I think this is why he was not really signed by anyone else last summer.

    I'm with Doc, Elton Brand, and for that matter, Bynum. Dude is 22 and his knees are shot. We can't risk another JO situation.
    Don't wanna see Dalembert either, or Leo Rautins' son.
    Good one .... I'm not entirely convinced of Bynum's health especially hearing everything right now about him getting his knees drained before every game of these NBA Finals. No thank you.

    Gordon Hayward- I just don't think his game will translate well into the NBA. He reminds me of Adam Morrison.
