After looking at those highlights I love how Wade's game has evolved over the years. His mid-range game and footwork are elite. And add on the fact he's still an elite passer. So blessed to have him in a Heat uniform.

Next year the Heat will have one of the best back courts in the league. A healthy Wade and Goran Dragic are scary. Both players can get buckets and play defense.

I can't wait until next season bruh... So much upside with our roster. 2 perennial all-stars, and all-star caliber PG and a young up a coming Center. Not to mention a top 10 pick with solid role players... YESSIR!! smokin.gif

And after watching these playoffs, I think the Heat could contend for a top spot in the East next year. Hell, if healthy they could have been in the Eastern Conference Finals this year... What y'all think?

I can live with that...lol. He took a pay cut to play with Lebron and is playing with an injured McBob instead. I'd want my money too.

Assuming we are not in a bigger mess by draft time, Myles Turner might be an underrated pick. We could have one of those most versatile front courts with him on the bench and be a great defensive team again

I don't think Wade will leave.
post #109 of 2814
This sums up our situation at the moment.
Quote:
### If Dwyane Wade surprisingly leaves Miami, where would he go?

Two associates mentioned the Lakers as a possibility (he has a good relationship with Kobe Bryant) and another referenced Dallas. For what it’s worth, the Knicks have oodles of cap space and Carmelo Anthony reportedly attended Wade’s wedding.

So Wade will have options if he wants to have options. Wade’s preference is to stay if Miami makes him a “priority” financially, as one friend termed it.

### If Wade and the Heat compromise, a salary in the $15 million range in both 2016-17 and 2017-18 would be the logical end point. That would be less than what Wade wants but more than the Heat wants to give him those seasons, according to an associate briefed on the discussions. As of late this week, the sides weren't at all close in finding a middle ground.

But even if the Heat could get Wade and Hassan Whiteside starting at $15 million each in 2016-17 --- and Whiteside could end up commanding more than that --- the Heat (with Chris Bosh and Goran Dragic) still couldn’t afford the top free agent small forwards in 2016 such as Kevin Durant or Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green, neither of whom would be available if they re-sign as restricted free agents before that.

And even if they trade Josh McRoberts in that scenario, Miami still probably couldn’t even afford the next tier of 2016 free agent small forwards, such as Chandler Parsons (player option), Nic Batum, Jeff Green and restricted free agent Harrison Barnes because their market value will increase as the cap skyrockets. (Danilo Galinari and Wilson Chandler are among other small forwards set for free agency in 2016, should the Heat move on from Luol Deng.)

Bottom line: Regardless of what Miami pays Wade, the odds are against the Heat being able to make a real significant move in 2016 free agency if Bosh, Dragic and Whiteside are all earning big money.

In determining what to pay Wade, the variable Miami can't predict is whether Whiteside will do enough next season to earn something close to a max contract. Remember: the Heat is not permitted to sign Whiteside until July 2016 and must save the cap space to fit Whiteside under the $89 million without surpassing it to sign him.

complicated situation
Quote:
So let's do the 2016-17 math, working with some of the aforementioned projections, as well as salaries firmly on the books: Chris Bosh, $23.7 million, Goran Dragic, $22 million (projected), Dwyane Wade, $16 million (projected), Luol Deng, $11 million (projected), Josh McRoberts, $5.8 million. That's $78.5 million (not even counting rookie-scale players), without a cent for Whiteside, and essentially no remaining space (because of a pesky accounting factor known as cap holds).

2016 is seeming like a pipe dream. I'm expecting some trades next season nerd.gif

If they can hold everyone below the cap til' it rises then they might be in a good spot, it's tricky with 4 potential max players

I don't blame Wade just bad timing for everything. I wouldn't mind letting him walk it's just a shame if that happens. But I'll take KD or Kawhi maxed w/o hesitation. Perhaps Russell Westbrook, then you don't resign Dragic. Damn this is complicated.
post #114 of 2814
I seriously don't think we need to go all out and sign Dragic to some insane max contract. He's not a player that's going to take us deep into the playoffs.

He's a good player but not much of a difference maker. I'd rather the heat resign Wade, trade Chalmers, and McBob for better up and coming talent. Plus we need to use our draft pick very wisely this year and draft proven talent that could develop into a future star.

Go all out for 2016 and don't let Dragic interfere with a pool of players like Kawhi, Durant, Westbrook, and Whiteside.

One last thing. For a contract that Dragic wants, you can sign two proven players like a Shumpert and JR Smith to add quality depth and defense to our team. Maybe use half the money or 2/3 of it to sign a Tristan Thompson. That alongside a Durant would be like the LeBron James days all over again.

Just a thought.

Dragic is worth what the market is asking for him right now, might be able to get him for less than max because of his bird rights but still. If the levying risks are losing Wade, then forget about all of it and pay the man what is owed... franchise would never get over the loss of Wade if it ever occured(which is seeming real :() and they just can't let that happen. We have a solid core right now and a chance at some promising rooks... all this 2016 FA stuff needs to take a seat before gambling too high takes it's course.

 

And as for proven talent... I love JR and all BUT in NO way are Shump or/and JR more proven then LeGoran! not even Tristan. Goran was All team NBA and MIP last year, while 29, he just started getting real minutes a few years ago so he'll probably have fresher legs than other players his age and more than likely play a little longer

 The initial move brought Hassan within a 10-minute walk of Lineburger Park, where older brother Anthony, a 6-1 forward at Hunter Huss High School, egged his rail-thin brother to join him on the court. Anthony, too, could see something in Hassan, who had taken up wrestling partly so he could lift weights with the team and partly so his siblings couldn’t push him around anymore. He was unsure of himself, but he could shoot and had a knack for using his long arms to block shots.

“We used to always go back and forth,” recalls Anthony, now 30 and then the man of the house. “I would mess with him about him having all the tools and everything it takes to beat me, but he couldn’t beat me because he hasn’t practiced, he hasn’t figured out how to use all the tools and skills that he had.”

By ninth grade, Hassan appeared to be falling well short of the 7-foot-2 mark doctors had projected him to be at birth. When he tried out for Forestview High School’s varsity team, he missed the cut because he was too short. “He’s got a pretty good game. He dribbles, he’s got a nice little jumper, he hustles,” the coach reported back to Debbie, a high school player herself who had coached her oldest two sons at the local rec center. “But this kid over here is 6-5 and your son’s 5-11, maybe six feet. You can’t buy height.”
