David Lee Very Unlikely In Phoenix

Don't get your hopes up for David Lee in a Suns uniform.

With Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade committing to Miami today, and LBJ leaning back to Cleveland (I mean, can you imagine the horror of not only leaving his home town but rubbing it in their faces via an hour-long nationally televised announcement?!?!?), there are a number of teams left holding the money bag.

Chicago spent a year clearing cap space for this summer (Hinrich, Salmons, Tyrus Thomas, etc.) and now has 30 mil in a briefcase ready to spend.  NJ Nets have a new billionaire owner and 30 mil to spend.  NY Knicks still have 20 mil or so to spend.  Minnesota has been courting Lee, as well. Hell, if Cleveland DOES lose LeBron (likely second choice being Miami with Wade and Bosh), then throw them in the mix, too.

David Lee and Carlos Boozer are the next best free agents left.

And they are salivating. They can smell the fear and desperation in the air. They can smell the money about to be laid at their feet.

Why would Lee's agent drop out early, and take less money to sign-and-trade with the Suns tomorrow?
