Arrow How much is 'Shard Lewis worth, and who's going to pay him?

6'9 wing/forward who can shoot from anywhere and rebound well for his size.

averaging 22 and 7 with 2.5 apg and 1.3 spg

47% from the floor, 40% from 3

solid, solid player. you can only really knock him for his effort on the defensive side of the floor.

my guess is his agent will be asking for Peja $$$... but will he get it? and with so few teams having cap space this offseason, who's going to pay him?

could he end up like bonzi? waiting and waiting and having to settle with some garbage contract?

S+T to the Knicks for Frye, Nate, and Crawford.

It doesn't really matter how much he's woth, he's gonna get PAID w/o question. Probably at least 14 or 15 mill IMO.

Orlando could probably grab him.

BTW, Orlando would be a nice fit as well (don't know what you would do with Hedo thought)

No.

The guy is nice but he's overrated. His passion for the game is also questionable. I seem to remember him giving a rather weak reason for missing a playoff game a few years back.

Overrated yes, but think about it... Do you know any other guys that put up his kind of numbers and get a contract of under 10 mill?

He's going to get paid that's for sure...Prolly thru sign and trade since the only teams that will have the space to sign him outright to the type of deal he's looking for is Orlando and Charlotte..And both teams may not be interested (maybe Orlandon though they might have Vince in mind)..

He'll prolly get Zach Randolph/Elton Brand type money...

you're assuming that 10+ million bucks is readily available.

orlando is the only team with a SF need and money to spend. but they also have to worry about paying darko and don't forget that carter and gerald wallace are also available.

and what team with SF needs has $10+ million in contracts that seattle desires to swap in a S&T ??

there is a good chance he doesn't get over $9 mill.

Bill Simmons raised the idea of Rashard going to Phoenix and I think it makes a lot of sense.

Out of the three picks they currently own, two won't be getting any playing time. On top of that they've shown a reluctance to pay first round money to guys who will only get spot minutes.

Meanwhile Seattle needs to rebuild. I don't know how it'd get done though ...

you're missing the point.

there isn't much $$$ out there, and he most likely won't be going back to Seattle... WHO IS GOING TO PAY HIM NEAR MAX $$$?

He will get max or near it. The money will be there. If no teams are offering max type dollars outright, and Seattle is offering less than 10 mil a year he will threaten to sign elsewhere for a smaller deal unless they help him get a bigger contract in a sign and trade. This is why agents make their money. That will force Seattle to raise the offer, or consider S+T offers so they don't lose him for nothing. Once he gets onto the S+T market, plenty of teams will make him a big offer and try to work something out.
