This is what LeBron had to work with this season and what he'll have next season.
Ray Allen - Free Agent - 38 years old
and is probably going to Retire
Shane Battier - Free Agent - 36 years old
and has made intentions to retire
Mario Chalmsers - Free Agent - 29 year old and is GARBAGE. Back up at best.
Toney Douglas - Free Agent - 28 year old. Awful. Isn't he a defensive specialist?
James Jones - Free Agent - 34 year old
who had a good year or two. Frrrrrrrrrack outta here!!
Michael Beasley - Free Agent - Still young and I like him as a role player.
Rashard Lewis - Free Agent - 35 year old
SF who received that insane $100million contract a while back. He's this year's Tracy McGrady.
Greg Oden - Free Agent - Former #1 pick who had so much potential... had. Sadly I think he's finished but hope he isn't.
Udanis Haslem - Player Option - 34 Year old
undersized PF who's best days are 10 years back.
Chris Anderson - Player Option - 36 years olds
and is going to be pressured to opt out of contract
Chris Bosh - Player Option - 31 year old oversized 3 undersized 4. Plays the 5 wayy to much for my liking. Still a valuable pieace.
Dwayne Wade - Player Option - 33 year old
undersized 2 whose past his prime.
Justin Hamilton - On Roster - ...? Who the F is this guy?!
Norris Cole - On Roster - Also Garbage but is only 26 and is a back up at best
So to recap... Who should Pat Riley replace?
SG - Dwayne Wade ($20.2 million)
SF - LeBron James ($20.6 million)
PF - Chris Bosh ($20.6 million)
The NBA issued new projections for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 salary cap and luxury tax thresholds. The 2014-15 salary cap is now projected to be $63.2 million and the tax level is projected to be $77.0 million.
The Big Three next season accumulate $61.4 Million leaving them $1.8 million to work with assuming they don't go into the luxury task which they will so in reality, they have like $15.6 million to spend. The Big Three will almost certainly opt out and redo the contracts to lure more talent in so who's available?
