Who has cap space?

As the dust settles from the trade deadline, eight NBA teams have enough cap space to sign a “max” free agent this summer, according to FanHouse. With a salary cap of $53 million, the Knicks and the Heat will have enough space for two max free agents, while the Bulls, Nets, Kings, Clippers, Wizards and T-Wolves figure to have room for one max contract.

Bill Simmons had this to say on his Twitter feed:

Official LBJ Sweepstakes: Cavs, Bulls, NYK (favs); Mavs, Clips (sleepers); NJ, Mia, Hou, LAL(longshots). And so it begins.

It’s going to be an interesting summer. It all starts with the Cavs — can they break through and win a title? Would that keep LeBron in town?

Knicks fans are saying, “we better get LeBron,” but would they take Wade/Bosh or Wade/Stoudemire? Of course they would. I bet they’d even take Joe Johnson instead of Wade in either scenario.

The Bulls are going to be a big player. They have cap space to sign a max player and a very nice core of Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah. Chicago would be a great landing spot for LeBron, Wade or Bosh.
