How did you come up with that number?

The only way the Suns can save a lot of money is if they buyout Ben Wallace.

And cutting Sasha doesn't remove him from their cap.

Yeah thats what I meant but I didnt say it siince I think you already mentioned it and a guy on ESPN said they'd save around 10 million after they buy Wallace out and cut Sasha.

They just need a big body to keep Howard and Garnett busy. They still have big problems though covering the perimeter, which should of been their priority.

Most of Sasha's deal is non-guaranteed, so they do save money by cutting him.

Hmm, didn't realize that Sasha had a partially guaranteed deal filled with incentives. He's only guaranteed $1.5 million of his $4.95 salary next season. And the Suns buying him out would save them even more than that.

Ben Wallace for sure is not going to retire and leave $14 million on the table, but he will accept a buyout.

The Cavs should offer the Warriors a trade for Stephen Jackson.

they had trouble cause they were doubling D12. that's done now, even before shaq now that Phil and co. gave the league the blueprint on how to play against Dwight.

IMO, it was just the opposite. They had trouble because they didn't double D12 enough and let him catch the ball too close to the hoop. That's why he dropped 25 a night against them. The Lakers doubled him almost every time from all angles and he only got 15.

Shaq will keep D12 away from the hoop, but he hasn't guarded the pick and roll in 8 years, and that's Orlando's go to play. It'll be interesting to see that match up now.

This really changes how Cleveland goes about their business, but they did just get Shaq for virtually nothing.

If this fails, Lebron will be leaving for NY in 2010.

What's so hard to figure out? It's called double him, and foul him if he gets past you. It's not rocket science. The thing the Lakers were able to do was stop the Magic shooters from killing them. That's what the teams in the East couldn't do.
