Report: Brian Cardinal, Darko Milicic, and Adam Morrison to join Free Agent Summit
Last week, Wade told the Chicago Tribune that he planned to talk with fellow free agents LeBron James and Joe Johnson before making a decision on where he would sign this summer. A source told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard that Bosh also would be part of those talks, and Amar’e Stoudemire, who is likely to opt out of the final year of his current contract with the Phoenix Suns, told AOL Fanhouse that he planned to be part of those talks, too.
HoopsVibe’s Quick Call: Rumor has it journeyman Brian Cardinal wants in. Darko Milicic also plans on attending. And Adam Morrison, the dude permanently attached to the Los Angeles Lakers’ bench, may also show – if the purple-and-gold don’t offer the restricted free agent a one year deal for the minimum before free agency hits.
Jokes aside, this summit, or whatever it’s called, is getting bizarre. Sure, Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Joe Johnson, Amar’e Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade, and Mother Teresa can meet and discuss their future or anything else they like.
However, James and Wade are wasting their incredible leverage. As the game’s best players, they should pick where they want to play, who they want to play with, who they want to play for, and then make the team they selected meet their demands.
Nothing else should be considered. After all, this is pro sports, not friends running together on the playground.
James and Wade have supposedly waited years for this summer. Instead of wasting time and energy consulting others, they should figure out exactly what they want and get it.
