I left LBJ out for a reason

Yes ladies and gentleman, in case you were wondering, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Lebron James and Josh Smith will all be available as free agents this next month.

July 1st is a month away and players on that date will be eligible to sign with any team that can afford them. There are two types of free agents that will be courted, unrestricted and restricted. Talk of New York sports will describe what each means in the upcoming weeks so that you are well prepared for water cooler show downs.
