yes, Always Next is correct. TE's can not be used to sign free agents, only to acquire EXISTING contracts from another team.

They are definately adding pieces, though Z and MMiller are has beens, they both could contribute enough. Another three pretty good role players and they have a team

They're still about 2-3 years away from beating the Lakers.

Who, the Heat? You're crazy. They could beat the Lakers anyday. Not saying they're a better TEAM [yet] ... but to think the Lakers are far ahead of them is crazy. Celtics beat the Lake Show the first year they had the big 3.

Yeah, but the Celtics had other key pieces around them. They had Perkins, a not-that-good-yet Rondo, Posey, Allen... they had good depth and were healthy.

I'm not saying the Lakers are completely ahead of the Heat, but they're still a couple pieces away from beating them in seven games.

Btw, it appears good ol' Al Harrington is signing with the Nuggets on a 5 year, $34 million contract.

I think that if the Heat, more specifically the young superstar three, can work well together, they're close to unstoppable. It's the defensive side that's the question mark. Wade v Kobe, Bosh v PGasol and who goes against Lebron, Artest? He could, but he isn't the same as he was some five years ago so that is heavily in favour of the Heat. The Heat need a proper PG desperately, above all else and then another Center. Strange that the Magic signed Duhon as their backup, he'd have been a good addition to this Heat team

Harrington is a good pickup, even if Carmelo stays and he us their 6th man. Harrington did surprisingly well last season

Absolutely.



btw, which year are we talking about? :mrgreen:


Nah, really, Amare is a BIG improvement for them, although he doesn't make them contenders, but definitely should be on the playoff bubble.

Raja Bell basically gave the Lakers a middle finger and giant "F*CK YOU" by signing with the Jazz instead of the Lakers. The deal is worth about 3 years, $10 million. I guess the man really hates the Lakers.

Sources: Bell agrees to terms with Jazz
By Marc Stein

Raja Bell won't be meeting face-to-face with longtime nemesis Kobe Bryant after all.

He's signing with the Utah Jazz instead.

Sources with knowledge of the deal told ESPN.com that Bell and the Jazz have agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth nearly $10 million, forcing Bell to cancel his sit-down in Los Angeles with Bryant that had been scheduled for Wednesday.
