shaq's 20 million off the books
+ maybe marion's 17 million off the books
+ plus ricky davis ($7 million) and jason williams ($8 million)
= $52 million in cap space

and a probable top 5 pick in a loaded draft

do it pat!
I have no idea where you are getting this 52 million off the books. It like this

Trading Shaq to the SUns for Marion and Banks is an exchange for 20 million in salary (Shaq) for 22 million in salary (Banks 5 mill and Marion 17 million).

So that means if Marion opts out (which I think he wont because he is not going to make 17 mill in one year again) and the Heat do not sign him than that would be:

17 million Marion
9 million J Williams
3 Million Mourning
7 Million Ricky Davis
36 million off the books

Next year the Miami Heat will have 41.2 million dollars committed to players and if they cut Joel Anthony and Alexander Johnson in which their contracts are non guranteed than they will have about 39.8 million dollars in guranteed contracts.

The salary cap for next year will be 55.63 million which means the Heat will have about 14.43-15.83 million in cap room this does not include their draft pick which will include a possible top 5 pick which is about and average of 2.5 million dollars then the Heat will have about 11.93-13.33 million dollars under the cap but they will need to resign alot of players to have the requirement of 13 players under contract.

. But it’s like people act like the suns can’t play half court that is y they can't close out in playoffs. that fast court sh*t b fu*king them up if they get Shaq that moves Amare back to his original position which is power forward no more double teams and making it easy for Amare to do his thing
smart guy..

Shaq is flying to Phoenix for his physical tomorrow.

It looks like he will be a Sun.

Shaq/Skinner
Amare/Diaw
Hill/Diaw
Bell/Alando Tucker
Nash/Barbosa

This team has no depth.

people are retarded and gonna say "shaq can't run it wont work" they gonna slow down and push it when they need too but they are gonna be stronger in the half court,the only reason why they never ran a half court offense is cuz marion can't shoot contested jumpers and can only dunk and play in the open court,shaq come playoff time is gonna shoot 60+ percent and suns are gonna win the chip,trust me i don't like sayin that but if the suns get shaq and is healthy come playoff time i think they will be the favorites to win the title, watch keep hatin on shaq and watch what happens come playoff time, shaq +amare = unlimited dunks

lol steve kerr aint been on the job for a whole year and he's already fu*ked up the suns. no way shaq fits into their system. suns losing every where - they losing youth, scoring, reb, 3pt shooting, ft shooting, etc etc. the path just got easier for Kobe, bynum gonna merk shaq again if they meet in the playoffs.

my bad, i forgot to subtract the 17 mill owed to marion
but all the bread coming off the books is gonna help sign big names, which the heat wouldnt have been able to do before

Why do all these great big men never know when to call it quits? Patrick Ewing went from NY to Seatle then to Orlando and just faded away. Same with Hakeem. After Houston he went to Toronto and nobody really cared he retired because he sucked by then. David Robinson went out in style. He could've played at least another 2 seasons but he decided to go out in style. Shaq should retire after the season so he can salvage his rep before he ruins it with some more sh*tty injury plagued seasons.
