Here is a brief Summary of the team’s payroll for 2010, I am sure it will change due to this years free agency and trade deadline. Its pure speculation.

 

 

Atlanta Hawks(Major Player): 22 Million without Mike Bibby who is a free agent this year (probably will resign with the team) and our beloved ahem Joe Johnson in 2010

 

Boston Celtics: 50 million on the books without Ray Allen who most likely will resign along with most of their current bench which needs resigning. (Probably sign lower end free agents to fill there bench)

 

Charlotte Bobcats: 55 Million on the books, Raja Bell is free plus not many players will end up there unless looking for a pay day.

 

Chicago Bulls: 41 million on book this is without Ben Gordon there’s a 50/50 he will sign for 10 million plus if they do then not a major player in free agency but if they do not sign Ben Gordon   they have an outside chance of getting Dwyane Wade in 2010.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers: 20 million on books without the king (37M With), Depends on what The King does if he stays someone might join him (Basically the summer of 2010 will depend on the King)

 

Dallas Mavericks: 65 Million Dirk will probably finish his career there

 

Denver Nuggets: 68 million with all there top 5 players signed

 

Detroit Pistons: 2009 will be there free agency signing year so can’t speculate too much

 

Golden state Warriors: 63 million all young players unless big trade comes they will stay the same

 

Houston Rockets: 36 million, Yao Ming will finish his career there Scola probably resign this year depends what happens with Tracy Mcrady and Ron Artest

 

Indiana Pacers: 60 million, not much will happen

 

L.A Clippers: 52 million, let’s hope they give more effort just for their fans

 

L.A Lakers: 77 Million, Kobe probably stays (well he should be loyal to the team)

 

Memphis Grizzlies: 31 million, up and coming team the draft will be there best friend.

 

Miami Heat: 30 million, depends if Dwyane signs someone might want to team up with him.

 

Milwaukee Bucks: 59 million, not much activity

 

Minnesota Timber wolves: 32 million, Al Jefferson will need help but won’t get any.

 

New Jersey Nets: 47million they will probably keep building with youth.

 

New Orleans Hornets: 70million, moving on, unless trades

 

New York Knick: 23 million, The Holy Grail of the Free Agency where probably Chris Bosh will end up.

 

Oklahoma City Thunder: 32 million, The Scariest Place if a super star lands here to help the thunders big 3 then they will be the elite team in the west for years to come.

 

Orlando Magic: 54 million need to sign Turkoglu

 

Philadelphia Sixers: 62 million, need to resign Andre Miler.

 

Phoenix Suns: 47 million with Amare 30 million without. We all know he wants a Max contract.(i am sorry I don’t know what a max contract is if anyone does can you comment below as to how much money Amare gets over how many years)  It will depend on what Steve Nash does and how much he signs for he will probably ask for 2 year 15 million each. Shaq could surprise us all and sign a grant like contract but he will probably look for 2 years 10 million each

 

Portland Trailer blazers: 39 million, they could add a few key signings and challenge the elite of the west.

 

Sacramento Kings: 35 million, most likely rebuilding through the draft next couple of years.

 

San Antonio Spurs: 34 million without Manu Ginobli which they should resign and I am sure will attract good role players.

 

Toronto Raptors: 50 million with Bosh 33 without, again player looking to get paid will be there.

 

Utah Jazz: 41 million, someone might go there because of the coach or d-will?

 

Washington Wizards: 63 million, plus this year’s rookie signing

 

Basically looking at the free agency list for 2010 (http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=12156)

I don’t think any of the top tier free agents will land in phoenix for 2010.

 

LeBron James (owed 17.2 million in 10/11)
Dwayne Wade (owed 17.0 million in 10/11)
Chris Bosh (owed 17.1 million in 10/11)

 

None of the above will sign for the suns

Amar'e Stoudemire (owed 17.7 million in 10/11)
Dirk Nowitzki (owed $21.5 million in 10/11)
Paul Pierce (owed $21.5 million in 10/11)
Yao Ming (owed 17.7 million in 10/11)
Mike Redd (owed $18.3 million in 10/11)
Tyson Chandler (owed $12.8 million in 10/11)

 

Amare should sign and finish his career here but he wants to be the man probably looking for 20 million a season. (Hope not)

 Maybe Tyson chandler might sign because of the Bill Cartwright link but I doubt it.

 

All the rest Dirk, Pierce, Ming and Redd won’t come.

 

Joe Johnson
Ray Allen
Manu Ginobili
Marcus Camby
Tracey McGrady
Brad Miller
Jermaine O'Neal
Mike Miller
Shaquille O'Neal

 

Would like Joe Johnson but probably won’t be back, would love Camby or Shaq but both probably wont come. All the rest will reup with their teams.

 

Udonis Haslem
Zydrunas Ilgauskas (option to opt-out prior to 2010)
Anderson Varejao (option to opt-out prior to 2010)
Al Harrington (option to opt-out prior to 2010)
Ben Wallace
T.J. Ford (player option for '10-'11, owed 8.5 million)
Jamal Crawford (option to opt-out prior to 2010)
Richard Jefferson (ETO)
Amir Johnson
Raja Bell
Jerry Stackhouse
Peja Stojakovic (ETO)
Josh Howard (*Mavs have a Team Option for $11.8 million in 10/11)
John Salmons (ETO)
Travis Outlaw
Rafer Alston
Luis Scola (restricted)
Roger Mason
Chris Duhon

 

Don’t like any of the above as well as don’t know there games that well, maybe Raja Bell might come back probably not.

 

 

Best of the rest

 

Joel Przybilla (ETO)
Larry Hughes
Eddy Curry (option to opt-out prior to 2010)
Quentin Richardson
Carl Landry (Team Option)
Chuck Hayes (Team Option)
Rasual Butler
Bruce Bowen
Earl Watson
Luke Ridnour
Matt Harpring
Derek Fisher
Speedy Claxton
Brian Scalabrine
Tony Allen
Patrick O'Bryant
Anthony Roberson
Randolph Morris
Sasha Pavlovic
Antoine Wright
Steven Hunter
Anthony Marrow (restricted) 
Brent Barry
Marquis Daniels (Team option for '09-'10)
D.J. Mbenga
Chucky Atkins
Kelenna Azubuike (Player Option) 
Darko Milicic
Dorell Wright
Yakhouba Diawara
Mark Madsen
Craig Smith
Dominic McGuire (restricted)
Kurt Thomas
Francisco Oberto
Antonio Daniels
Jerome James
Brendan Haywood
Tony Battie
Anthony Johnson
Tim Thomas
Brian Cardinal
Damien Wilkins
Mark Blount
Bobby Simmons
Kenny Thomas
Matt Bonner
Etan Thomas

Most of these would probably could come and be bench and role players.

 

I personally think that the suns should target this year’s free agency

http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=12445

 

These are the players I think we should target but wont.

 

Ron Artest: perimeter/man defender would help Amare better because Amare said he wanted to be like him lol

 

Hedo Turkoglu: jack of all trades as well as Mr clutch 4th quarter well I think he is.

 

Marcin Gortat the guy we drafted in 2005, 25 years old , back up center or starter when shaq goes give the MLE ( whatever that is? about 5 million a season?)

 

Basically being realistic I would like to resign Grant Hill, pick up Steve Nash’s contract and sign Marcin Gortat. Proably have to draft a point guard of the future, I love Dragic  but we will need his back up and this is a point guard draft plus Gentry said they might draft someone and keep them on the bench for the rest of the season. Plus we don’t have a draft pick in 2010. The second round draft picks should focus on SF and PF.
