Free Agent Prediction Thread

Post by wideclyde on Fri Jun 29, 2018 12:05 pm

Lots of big names out there, lots of possible moves for every team. Could be some signings that can change the playoff landscape next spring.

What are your predictions?

I will lead off with saying that LeBron James will re-sign with the Cavaliers for 4 or 5 more years.

Regarding our Cs, they will re-sign Smart and Baynes and plan to dig in on getting #18 with a healthy Hayward, Theis and Irving joining the core
of younger guys that played so well late in last season.

Lebron has lost to GS 3 out of the last 4 years.  It is highly unlikely he signs a 4-5 year deal.  Why would he do that?

PG goes to LAL

Cousins resigns with NOLA as does Rondo

Smart leaves for Dallas.  Keeping Rozier is more important

Baynes resigns with Boston.

Durant resigns with GSW

Chis Paul stays in Houston.  Capela also resigns but they lose Arisa.

More to come...

Not so crazy, I think.

One bonus about drafting Robert Williams is that we no longer have any interest in free agent Noel or trading for Okafor.

Okafor is a UFA now. Probably looking at either playing for the vet minimum or overseas for next season, IMO.

but no need for him here as long as Baynes is back.

You didn't list Okafor, so I just assumed he was still signed.  Yeah, we probably don't need either of them and won't have roster space if we do sign Baynes and Smart.

With George resigning with OKC, the Lakers are down to two options. Make the trade for Leonard and get Lebron on board or sign Cousins and get Lebron on board.

Lebron will meet with the Sixers. They are still a player in the Leonard sweepstakes but i do not see how they get him without parting ways with Simmons. They only have 2 really good young players on their team to deal. Saric could also be thrown into the mix.

I don't get why they would trade Simmons now, after watching him grow this year. Giving up on the young players is a huge move. I know everyone will say that getting James is a huge plus big plus, but I am doubtful it will take them to the title.
This may be the one time that James finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place. There was a rumor on Hoop Hype that he even tried to get Durant to jump with him Pop is going to take his time making a decision on Kwahi, so what will he do????

Rosalie, a big 3 including James, Leonard and Embid would be formidable. Simmons cannot shoot as everyone found out. I put forth a few trade scenarios in another thread.

If Boston can do anything to help facilitate a Cousins trade to LAL it may be the only thing they can do to avoid Lebron joining the Sixers.

Don’t see them getting rid of Simmons, the 3 will have to learn to play together with Lebron and Simmons taking turns initiating the offense if Lebron goes there.

That may be, to some, a wonderful match. I just don't see LeBron sharing anything. After all, he is the King.
There are too many question marks in a deal with Philly, I just don't see it happening
