Dwyane Wade has played with the Miami Heat for his entire 12-year career but he could finally depart as there’s a contract standoff between the two.  Wade is set to become a free agent and reportedly wants a ton of money, more than the Heat are willing to dish out.  There’s been talk about him possibly joining his friend and old teammate LeBron James on the Cleveland Cavaliers but now there’s another team thrown into the mix.

NBA: Paul Pierce Says He Is Definitely Playing Next Year, Question Is For What Team?

Paul Pierce showed us all during the playoffs that he is still a very important player to have on your team during crunch time. He still is clutch for big shots which is part of the reason he says he definitely will return next season. The question now becomes what team will he play for?

NBA: Report, Dwyane Wade Is Very Serious About Leaving Miami This Summer If New Deal Isn’t Reached

Dwyane Wade opted out last year, to give the Heat some room to pursue upgrades to the roster in part to lure LeBron James back. That didn’t happen, and Wade re-signed for two years, $31 million, giving the Heat some cap room but also giving him an option for next year. Everything seemed fine going into this summer and next year but hold up, there is a big problem now and that problem is money and Wade is set to walk away from South Beach if he doesn’t get what he wants.

NBA Report: Chris Paul & DeAndre Jordan Had Issues With Each Other Throughout the Season

DeAndre Jordan will become a free agent this summer and he plans to explore the market but the Los Angeles Clippers definitely need to keep him.  Though they can offer Jordan more money, they might have trouble retaining him due to friction on the team.

NBA Report: Cavaliers Have “Legitimate Fear” Kevin Love Will Opt-Out & Leave

Kevin Love has denied that he is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers repeatedly but still reports continue to pop up and the rumors refuse to die.  The latest is from one of the biggest news breakers in the NBA.  We all know, love and trust Adrian Wojnarwoski of Yahoo Sports and here’s his thoughts on the matter.

NBA: Beno Udrih Says the Knicks Won’t Get Marc Gasol Because He Doesn’t Like Drama

Marc Gasol will be one of the biggest free agents this upcoming offseason and the New York Knicks have their sights set on him.  There’s been conflicting reports that Gasol has already ruled the Knicks out while Marc himself says he hasn’t ruled anyone out because he’s not focused on free agency right now.  The Memphis Grizzlies are facing the tough Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference semis so I don’t blame him for his mind being else where.  In any event, the Knicks are patiently waiting but Gasol’s Grizzlies’ teammate and former Knick, Beno Udrih says New York has no chance of getting him.

NBA: Report, LaMarcus Aldridge Will Sign With Spurs This Summer Unless Kevin Love Leaves Cleveland

It is becoming a well known fact that LaMarcus Aldridge is pretty much done with Portland and is ready to move on to better situations. He shouldn’t take any heat for not wanting to return. He has been there nine years and the team has never really done much. True, a combo of him and Damian Lillard is nice to have, but without disrespecting them there are better duo’s out there. Aldridge is a free agent and appears pretty set on going to the Spurs but he could instead wind up with Cleveland if Kevin Love opts out.

NBA: Report, Spurs Are Playing No Games With Kawhi Leonard, Will Offer Max Deal This Summer

Kawhi Leonard’s stock is going UP and everyone is taking notice. He was named the defensive player of the year for this season and is poised to become a perennial all star and one of the best overall players in the league period. The Spurs organization is one of the smarter ones in sports and according to reports they have no plans to low ball Kawhi this summer and in fact will offer him the max deal on the very first day of free agency.

NBA: Carmelo Anthony Admits He Second Guessed His Decision To Stay With The Knicks

I totally feel Carmelo on this because even as a fan I second guessed myself numerous times this season as to why do I keep watching the Knicks. So I can only imagine the stress and frustration a player on the team would feel. When Carmelo re-signed with the Knicks last summer the last thing he expected was to be part of the worst team in franchise history and one of the worst teams in the league period. Can you imagine where Chicago would be right now if Melo went there? It sounds like Melo has thought about that too.

NBA: Report, Greg Monroe To The Knicks This Summer Is Basically A “Done Deal”

The Knicks can take ANY upgrades they can get at this point and it appears one seems to be on the way already, although it can not publicly be discussed. Pistons Greg Monroe will be a free agent this summer and knows he will be in demand. Phil Jackson and the Knicks however seem to be the front runner to land his services by a mile compared to other teams that will want him. While Monroe is not an elite forward at this point, he is young enough to still achieve greater heights in this game and let’s be honest, he would be a dramatic improvement over some of the front court players the team had this year.
