Team-by-team who we're competing with in FA.

I was looking at Good to know who you're competing with.... Tanking: Boston, Charlotte, Out of space (except maybe an exception or two): Brooklyn, Chicago, Denver, Golden State, LA Clippers, LA Lakers, Memphis, Miami, New York, OKC, Phoenix, Toronto, Washington.

Atlanta: Currently about $11M in cap room, can get another $16M or so by waiving their rights to Josh Smith. They don't seem very excited about keep him. They will make a play for the big boys, but they seem more likely to tank than to take on big salary players unless they can land Dwight Howard. Al Horford's under contract for three more years- I expect them to keep him even if they decide to tank.

Cleveland Cavaliers: $23M of space so far, another $3M if we find some team willing to take Gee. Looks like we're looking for a big contract.

Dallas Mavericks: Finagling hard for enough space to sign a max contract. If they don't, expect them to dive into the market for more players.

Detroit Pistons: Lots of cap space, and no reason to save it. They'll be doing some serious shopping.

Houston: Probably not enough for a max contract, but still have quite a bit of space, and will be shopping.

Indiana: Looking to re-sign David West. If they do, then no cap space.

Milwaukee Bucks: They could resign their guys and have no cap space, or they could blow the team up and get a lot of young useful players in free agency I don't know that either one can work- they missed the playoffs this year and aren't getting any better, but on the other hand I don't think they have the young core of Detroit or Cleveland. What to do, what to do....

Minnesota Timberwolves: No space if they re-sign Pek. If they don't they'll have some money to replace him with.

New Orleans: Jrue should eat into most of their space.

Orlando Magic: Not a lot of cap space, but a huge trade exception. Will almost certainly be players.

Philadelphia 76ers: Now they have lots of space. I'm guessing they use it and don't tank.

Portland: Middling trade room.

Sacramento: Will re-sign or replace Tyreke Evans.

San Antonio: Will re-sign or replace two players.

Utah Jazz: Lots of space.

Interesting- I only have two listed as tanking. I was expecting a lot more. Thoughts?
