LeBron James Nixes Knicks, Nets

James will play with the Miami Heat next season.

The New Jersey Nets and New York Knicks will obviously have to move on. It appears the Knicks will likely look to move David Lee tonight to the Golden State Warriors.


LeBron James "Leaning" Towards Miami Heat

This is last night’s news, but it’s picked up steam through the morning: many sources appear to believe that LeBron James will join Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade with the Miami Heat.
I hate lending credence to this stuff, but there are very, very few writers trust more than Newsday’s Alan Hahn, so I’ll lend credence to this: at around 11 last night, Hahn tweeted that multiple sources had confirmed that “the new Big Three is here”.
Soon, he had an article up in Newsday. Again, Hahn has been ill at ease to report on various speculation, so I find his insistence on this to be genuine.
By now, Adrian Wojnaroski from Yahoo! Sports and ESPN’s Chris Broussard have espoused his theory, either way, it looks semi-certain that LeBron will join the Heat and not the New York Knicks or New Jersey Nets.
Then again, nothing in this free agency process has made sense, so don’t be surprised.

Knicks Make Offer To Amare Stoudemire

According to Howard Beck at the New York Times, it’s official.

The New York Knicks have offered Amare Stoudemire a five-year, $100 million contract, and could potentially move up their meeting with Bosh from Monday to an earlier date.

The Knicks are apparently the front-runner for Stoudemire, and if he signs with New York, it could go a long way towards landing other agents knowing they’ll have a running mate.

Via Twitter, Beck points out that it's far from a done deal, but he points out the Knicks appear to be the team willing to offer the most money to Stoudemire.
