Earlier today both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh announced on ESPN that they will be signing with the Miami Heat. While they are reportedly trying to bring LeDiva James with them, the hot rumor is that he's going to the Knicks. Or so people thought. CelticsLife was able to speak with Wade, Bosh, and Lebron and we're hearing they haven't made up their minds yet. They are all waiting on Brian Scalabrine to choose his landing spot first. Lebron will stay in Cleveland if the Cavs can bring him Scal. The Cavs are feverishly working on a sign and trade offer to the Celtics for Scal. The Cavs don't have the ability to sign Scalabrine outright as he's not willing to take such a discount this second chance in free agency. Here's Scalabine on the topic:
Five years ago I had 3 max offers on the table, but I chose to come to Boston for peanuts (5yrs/15 million) to team with Paul and get Boston number 18. We did that (see video after the jump) and while I don't really need the max, I need to be able to feed my family. I have 12 red headed stepchildren many people don't know about. I also need to get some better threads. You've seen what I wear? Eventually I plan on opening the Brian Scalabrine Dance School for underprivileged redheads and that also takes loot.
While Lebron is trying to bring Scalbrine to Cleveland, Dwyane Wade is pitching the "Dream Team" idea to Lebron and Scal, where the three of them would all sign in Miami for a little less. In this scenario, Wade's puppy dog Chris Bosh would be left out cold. Scal is hesitant to go to Miami though as he feels his pale skin might not survive the Florida sun.

Right now we're hearing Scalabrine is leaning to joining the New Jersey Nets, as he likes the Russian Billionaire's pitch of money, winning, and women. If the Nets were to get a commitment from Scal, then Lebron, Wade and Bosh would all fight over the chance to be his wingman, his Robin. Chicago, as usual, has struck out again in free agency and are looking to their Plan F, which is signing Ron Mercer and Brad Miller. I guess that's what happens when you break up a dynasty with the best player to ever play the game (Well at least until that point. *Editor's note* No offense meant to Scalabrine).

As opposed to the King with no Ring's hour circus show announcement on ESPN, Scal will be announcing his decision in a local liquor store. In return Scal has been promised Narrangansett beer for life for him and his 12 redheaded step children. We'll keep you posted if we hear any more on Scalabrine's choice. Wade, Lebron, Bosh and the rest of the basketball world wait patiently.

    the circus around Lebron and others is a big joke and has nothing to do with basketball in the end

    Is that really "Trash Talking"????
    I hear more trash talking in ambient audio during a regular season game...

    What can you expect no one even talks to Scal let alone give him a "high-five"...

    He's the last of a dying breed, a white guy in a Celtic uniform...

    Where is he going to sign????
    Phsssh, please! I think he's going to the D-League...Or Europe...as a towel boy...

    hahahahaha! cool!

    I heard some western coast team has offered him a multiyear contract starting on the $9 million range and he has declined the offer because he is waiting for a Celtics proposal for the minimum :D

  9. Bohemian says:

    Now seriously, why not offer Scal one year at the minimum?
