    Default Wade Optimistic That LeBron & Chris Are Coming to Miami

    A source close to Dwyane Wade said the Heat guard believes his team is poised to pull off a free-agency coup of landing himself, Cleveland Cavaliers guard LeBron James and Toronto Raptors forward Chris Bosh.

    However that same source, as well as a party inside the league, said Wade also plans to cover himself during the initial days of the free-agency negotiating period by scheduling interviews with the Bulls, New York Knicks and, in somewhat of a surprise, the Dallas Mavericks.
    While the Knicks and Bulls, like the Heat, have the salary-cap space to sign multiple top-tier free agents, the Mavericks do not have available cap space this offseason and would need to complete a sign-and-trade agreement with the Heat to add Wade.

    In addition, while there has been speculation that a James arrival in South Florida would mean Pat Riley again returning to coach the team, a party close to Wade indicated that James would be receptive to working with Erik Spoelstra, who is scheduled to begin his third season as Heat coach.

    I can't believe the Heat have room to sign three max-money players. They should thank BC for the O'Neal trade.

    I think that at least one of them would have to go under the max.

    I don't think Lebron is going to Miami. It will either be Chicago or he will stay home in Cleveland.

    I believe they can if they S&T Beasley. (Perhaps it becomes a 3 way trade - either CLE or TOR in the middle).

    Yeah, barely. If salary cap is $56M and they release the cap-hold on Wade, they'll have $10.5M tied up leaving them with $45.5M, I think first year salary for a max player would be the "30% of cap" rule which is $16.8. 16.8 x 3 = 50.4 so they'll fall about 5M short. Unless they dump Beasley's 5M on us which would make it possible. This also doesn't count the fact that they'll have to sign other players too...

    the credibility was ruined the second they called LeBron a guard

    if he's a guard, Brock Lesnar is a welterweight.

    As if Cleveland wouldn't get first crack at Beasley... unless Bosh is the first to sign with Miami.
    It's about money

    Im almost 100 % that Lebron leaves the Cavs without a S&T
    I have a strong feeling he's going to shaft them

    So that would leave Beasley for us
