    Wade wants more money so he declines the 2 year £40mil. But then the only thing he can get offered by the Cavs owing to the salary cap is a taxpayer MLE.

    ...Yeah makes total sense :lol:

    But then since he's meeting with the Cavs perhaps he doesn't care about the money. The Heat are offering what they can, but leaving to the Cavs for less makes little sense given he knows the Cavs cap situation. Can't see Lebron taking a pay cut either to facilitate it (Since I'm sure the NBAPA will have a fit about Lebron of all people not making the most money he can after the whole CBA thing).
    Exactly my thoughts lol. Wade wanted more money, he aint gonna get that in Cleveland, doubt Lebron takes more discounts again. I think its just the banana boat bros holidaying together again :lol: *

    Getting Zaza is good. David Lee in talks to come back too.

    Dubs aside I'm looking forward to watching the Mavs. Bogut and Barnes linking up there, along with Seth Curry!

    Might as well. If you're a vet who has all the money in the bank, why not say screw it, play on the cheap and go for another title. It's similar to Zaza in that he's a post 30 player who might as well go for it.

    Makes sense given how appealing Golden State is at the moment. Excellent core of drafting (Curry/Klay/Green), management has managed to attract KD, and hold onto some key others (Linvingston, Iggy), so it's an attractive organisation to play for.

    Apparently anyone will sign min for a ring. All they need is a wing and they have decent depth. Scary.

    Also regarding the Wade to Cavs situation. It's a little shady but is it illegal for LeBron to be like 'You're my boy, I just signed a contract worth a billion, I'll give you 10 million under the table if you take the deal on paper'. If not I could see a situation like that going down.

    On another note Ben Simmons looked good, he looked really good. Shame he's with the 76ers though :lol:

    Guy is gonna be a triple double machine.
    He needs to develop a jumpshot ASAP though, defences are gonna lay off him at the perimeter....

    Yeah that's almost definitely against League rules and/or the CBA agreement.

    Edit: David West has also joined the Warriors on a Vet Min.
