Where will everyone end up?

I think we all know where the Twolves end up in FA now that Darko and Pekovic are rumored to be signed.  Everything else will need to be trades now – which I don’t see happening until the dust settles.

So, lets try something different.  Where do you see the key players going?  Why?  Let me start

 James

 I see James in only 1 of 2 places – Cleveland or Chicago.  He does not need to share the limelight with anyone – which eliminates Miami.  I don’t see either New York teams being able to immediately compete for a title – and I don’t see James stepping back for a couple of years before moving forward.  Cleveland is home and can offer the most $$$.  Chicago has the most ready to be a championship dynasty team.  I see a pretty quick decision in favor of Chicago.

 Wade

 No decision at all – he is staying in Miami

 Bosh

 I really, really think Houston snags Bosh.  Bosh is a certified star but based on the current NBA rules (which favor SG/SF type players), he needs better support.  Houston has it.  Plus, Houston can give Toronto enough assets to get Bosh a max contract in sign and trade.

Johnson

 If he is only about the money, I see him staying with Atlanta.  But my bet is that he heads to which ever team James goes to  through a sign and trade.  As we saw this year, he is not able to carry a team in the playoffs – but would be devastating playing #2 to James.

 Amare

 A big winner – he gets a max deal, the fame of NY and his old coach back by signing with the Knicks.  I see the Kincks keeping Lee and look to add a shooter from the 2nd tier.

 Dirk

 Stays put – but with a contract that has more years but less dollars to allow Dallas to try and get some help – which they will get – through an Al Jefferson trade.

Boozer

I see Boozer Miami bound to play with Wade.  A very good 1-2 that should equal just about anything else in the East.  Bigger plus – I then see Miami cherry picking the B list with their remaining money to get the rest of the pieces they need to contend.

Pierce/Allen – will stay in Boston and attempt to cheat age for another couple of years.

So, what does everyone else think?
