    I hear that Blaza is a supplier.

    I believe Choice (the 5 team version) is 145 or 150.

    I love Thibs, but if Deng wants to get paid on his next contract like he is now (which is between $13-14 million annually) then the Bulls would be smart to let him go find out that no other team is gonna pay him that kind of coin. If he hits the open market I'm confident his asking price will come down when he discovers that he likely won't get more than $8-9 million a year from anyone else.

    Especially in an era where GMs are looking for guys like Chandler Parsons and Danny Green who are very athletic and can be molded into decent defenders and knock down jump shooters for cheap.

    Edit: you can even add Jimmy Butler to that list of guys like Green and Parsons

    Agree 100%. I like Luol, but if he thinks he's geniunely worth $13+ million a year he's insane.

    He may not be worth it, but there is always some dumb ass team willing to overpay for a player that they think will turn the team around.

    That's always possible. I fully support the Bulls letting him see if that kind of money is out there for him before just ponying up themselves. No sense bidding against yourself.

    Not sure, but teams have been clearing space for this year (like your Lakers) and I don't get the hubbub about it. Most of the guys that people talk about as FA targets (guys like George, Monroe, Cousins) are restricted and won't be going anywhere in all likelihood.

    We all know the Lakers want Lebron and Melo. It will be funny when they don't get either of them.

    It won't be as funny as it would have been a month ago.....Laker fans are starting to realize they are truly fucked after this season when they'll have cap room and nobody worth a damn to spend it on.

    Monroe is the most likely RFA to go. Especially if he doesn't work well with Drummond and Smoove.

    No offense to Greg Monroe, but Laker fans are not gonna get excited about a Pistons cast off as the savior of the franchise. That, and I think Kobe might murder him by mid-season if he comes here in the Mamba's twilight.
