    2007 Free Agency - Sources!

    The New Orleans Hornets have extended an offer to start SG LeAndro Barbosa.

    The deal is reportedly worth in the 60M range. "They don't want him to hit the open market," sources indicated to Yahoo Sports.

    The Chicago Bulls are in advanced discussions on a max contract extension with forward LeBron James, according to sources close to the process.

    The Bulls hope to hear back from James by tomorrows deadline, but sources told ESPN.com this week that negotiations on a new deal for Chicago's cornerstone have been positive. The source indicated that James may choose to test the FA market, but knows that he will likely ink a new 5 year deal with the team. His lack of college recruiting is in large part the reason making the FA rounds intrigues him.

    I was nervous at this thread when I didn't see anyone sign.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Even if they test FA those Max deals are going to be match by the team that originally drafted them and Barbosa might stay put.

    They will; it's tier 3 and below that'll get overpaid.

    "I don't know if people know I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"

    Same thing as last free agency with Amare, Jay Williams, etc.

    I thought Jay Williams and Caron got over paid.

  16. #16
    I refuse to overpay, which is why in most part, I never sign anyone.

    If he's the last piece to a puzzle you've got to pay the piper. If you're in stage 1 of a rebuild, it makes no sense.

    Right. I'm somewhere in the middle. Missing 2-3 pieces really.

    all those deals are moveable for expirings though. It's the James Posey contracts that kill you.

    I don't regret Joe Smith but I regret Posey now since I have a young SF in Pietrus who produces. I should have given Posey no more than 4 years 24 million totaled.

    I think you're one major piece away from having a long term core but need to improve the overall talent level of the team (backups and complimentary starters). You're doing a fantastic job being patient. If I were you I'd be working on getting the talent level up and then work on acquiring that last foundational piece via trade. With RFA, it'll be very hard to acquire those guys on the market.
