If they add melo, phenomenal startibg group but will have no depth (unless wade became a 6th man)
Could rotate all 4 in the starting lineup and the bench having 2 on the floor at all times.

oy...that could be enticing...

It's a tough time, probably every fa of value is going to be connected to teams. The Heat and lakers will have a media generated frenzy for many of them till they're signed.

Still not sure what kind of money they could offer him.

Maybe DanH or one that knows the cap rules much better can throw in a thought? Is it possible for the Heat to add a 4th star like a Lowry, Love or Melo if the big 3 take less?

Quote:
New York Knicks*star*Carmelo Anthony*is leaning toward leaving in pursuit of immediate championship contention, and awaits the*Chicago Bulls*and*Houston Rockets*to clear the necessary salary-cap space to sign him in free agency, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

As re-signing with the Knicks continues to fade as his priority, Chicago and Houston have emerged as the clear frontrunners to acquire Anthony, league sources told Yahoo Sports.Anthony's meeting with Knicks officials on Friday night had little impact on his state of mind, league sources said, because there remain too many uncertainties about how quickly president Phil Jackson can reshape the team into a championship contender.

Chicago and Houston front-office executives are working diligently on contingencies to clear the space to sign Anthony outright – or engage sign-and-trade scenarios with New York, sources said."His heart is in New York," one source familiar with Anthony's thinking told Yahoo Sports, "but he wants a chance to win now."
Quote:
Jackson has turned off Anthony with his public proclamations of wanting the seven-time All-Star forward to take less money to stay with New York, league sources said.Around Anthony and the NBA, there's some doubt about whether Jackson truly wants to keep him on a five-year, $120 million-plus extension, or simply is giving the appearance for public relations' sake. Jackson has been somewhat cavalier in his public declarations of wanting Anthony to stay, and it's been noticed.Anthony has said he's willing to take less than the maximum-allowable contract, but league sources said that involves situations where he can be shown how his financial concessions can result in the immediate acquisition or retention of talent. Anthony hasn't expressed interest taking less for hypothetical signings in 2015 or '16, as New York wants him to do, sources said.Anthony isn't as concerned over a novice head coach in Derek Fisher, as he is a roster barren of assets and talent to move toward contention.Anthony, 30, has been intrigued with the chance to join the Bulls for several months, but Houston has gathered significant momentum as a preferred destination for him, league sources said.

For Chicago to make its bid for Anthony, it will need to amnesty the contract of Carlos Boozer and unload forward Taj Gibson and at least one more player. The Bulls could enjoy an easier path to the NBA Finals than Houston, which competes in the much stronger Western Conference. Anthony has an affinity for Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, but ultimately Anthony must also weigh the future health of guard Derrick Rose in his decision.Houston has Dwight Howard and James Harden prepared to recruit Anthony as the third star in a championship chase.

The Rockets need to shed the contracts of Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin to clear most of the space to sign Anthony to a max contract. Because those players are moving into the expiring year of their contracts, they could potentially appeal to New York in sign-and-trade scenarios that would deliver Anthony his full max contract of four years, $90 million-plus.In trade talks, New York has told teams it doesn't want to take on contracts beyond the summer of 2015 although Asik, a center, could ultimately be a player the Knicks would want to sign long-term. There's a market for Asik to be traded into salary-cap space elsewhere for draft considerations, but Houston may have to package a draft pick to move Lin.

If he didn't you'd have to question what Dolan did to make him opt out. Amare isn't turning down his last huge payday of 20+ million to opt out and get 2 million max.

Not love because he is under a contract but Lowry for sure. IMO, Lowry is at a prime age so he looking for money so he won't go there but yes theoretically they could take sign him and wow would that be beast. Melo a possible as well but I don't think he's interested in Miami because he wants to lead

Loved that guy throughout his career.

That heat team turned out to be far more rickety than the Spurs.

Keep in mind that FL has no state income tax so let's say 10mil/ year in FL would be 10mil/ year minus federal deductions = net to the player, while California has 13.3% state income tax for that kind of money which means 1.3 mil less net to a player each year. so a 5 year deal 10mil/ year will net a player 6.5 mil more in FL vs California. Pretty significant. Add to this the tax issue. Shaq once said: It’s the double taxes that deter players from going there. Although there are NBA bylaws that compensate for the tax difference in Canada. The rule limits taxation on signing bonuses American players earn from Canadian teams.
Unless it was amended in the last few year this is still a factor for players.

No state tax is an advantage for sure, same as in Texas. 2 states and 5 nba teams - a bit of an advantage.
