Still lacking a decent 2 way center there but that could come via mle or draft.
And I would fully expect for Posey to be bought out as well netting a bit more capspace(as long as buyuout is less than the 7.5 million he is owed next season it could easily fetch another couple million in capspace bringing team to close to 10 to add a center with)
um, so bayless, demar, gay, davis and nene have a prayer against chicago or miami? Um ... ok
and that's not even counting the future superteams waiting to happen. If Miami wins the title, which it looks like they will, it's probably going to push the other big names to team up to have a shot at a title. Just think if Howard forces his way to Chicago (or worse, to LA ...), or Paul goes to the Knicks, or Deron to the Clippers...
Yes, bayless, demar, gay and davis are young, but do you really think they'll ever be as good as lebron/wade/bosh, paul/carmelo/amare, rose/howard/deng or even durant/wb/ibaka ?
