Free Agent: Chris Webber

Chris Webber is an unrestricted free agent and quietly he still posted 20 and 10 last year...i think we should offer him a phat 1 year deal and see if he will sign to win his only championship and he could significantly help us on the boards and defense down low...sure his game is not where it was like a few years back, but he still has a year or two left in his tank....what are yalls thoughts on this?

He's not an unrestricted free agent. He's not a free agent of any kind.

Spurs have no cap space to offer him a "phat" contract.

2002 was only 4 years ago and the Kings were trying to knock out the Lakers for the NBA finals. He would be a good solid pickup on the cheap.

exactly and its not like he doesnt still have the skills...he could mirror timmy very well, much better than udanis haslim did for shaq...plus all those years of kings v mavs, im sure he had to guard dirk a time or two...so he is no stranger to it

Webber makes something like $22 million a year. No way is he opting out of that contract, he won't make anything close to it again. And the Spurs couldn't clear that much cap space in one summer.

So keep smokin, dude. Keep dreamin.

webber has made his money....it comes to a point where he has to ask himself...do i want a championship? am i really going to win one with AI? am i really going to win even the eastern conference? i think he knows its now or never...plus he doesnt even like playing in phily so its very much a reality if the spurs put an offer out there

Webber is not going to toss aside $20 million for a possibility of a ring.

How many years does Web have on his current contract?
these guys like payton and malone start playing for cheap and looking for that ring when thier BIG contract is over, not terminate it and play for "peanuts"

I'm sure he thinks hes got 3-4 years left in him anyways.

We kinda like to talk about realistic ideas around here. I know I do. You'll have to wait two years, when his contract ends, before you can start trying to get him on the cheap. Until then - trust me - it's not gonna happen.

Webber has a player option, but he'd be stupid to leave behind 2 years at 42M.

No, the Spurs can't make draft day deals to get under the cap. How do you suppose they'll be under the cap far enough to offset the MLE? That'd mean dumping 15M+ in contracts... how do you suggest they do it? dumping Tim Duncan to the Hawks?

Even if all of the above didn't apply, he'd be a bad fit. Terrible idea all around. Next.

Yeah, right...

There are no more than a handful of posters who fit that bill.

Sad, but true.

My thought is there is NO WAY IN HE!! that CWebb is leaving the sixers and giving up his cash. Don't get me wrong the sixers would LOVE to move him this year, but even they know it's not likely (even being as close to the Knicks as we are--that's a joke btw). We (sorry the Sixers) will likely work hard to move AI and possibly another player or two to free up $$$.

BOTTOM LINE, webber isn't walking out on 40+ million to do basically NOTHING.

this thread needs to be LOCKED.

CWebb just is not the same player. Yeah he pulled down a 20-10 season but in crunch time he still looks slow, and unable to dominate a game like he used to. I saw a bunch of sixers games this season, and I noticed he gets his points and rebounds but in almost every game late in the game he would usually fade, he just looks like that knee is still bothering him.

There are definitely more interesting options on that list than Webber. Posey, Ariza, Songalia, Rasual Butler, Marcus Banks, and Qyntel Woods and are all available. I'm not sure how much it would take to sign any one of these guys, but all of them have upside including size, length and athleticism at the 3 position, potential for a great back up PG, and some post work. Don't focus on stars...look for solid role players.

No one would offer him what he is making now so it is best he doesn't opt out and there is no way the Spurs can get enough under the cap this summer or next unless they "dump" at least of the big three contracts they currentlt possess (manu, tim & parker.)

Webber is on the trading block though.

But again, a lot of salary would have to leave the Spurs to get him in a Spurs uni and
I doubt he's wanted with that much salary he's carrying.

We have needs on this team.....Chris Webber doesn't fit any of those needs in any way, shape, or form.....period.

It's remote anyways, he's not opting out of his contract.

we have a HUGE hole in our team at pf...if u think bonner is the answer, your wrong...the spurs need to find someone to play along side timmy...someone who can space the floor, hit an outside J...quite like udanis haslim..and grab some boards..webb can do all that and for the ring, im tellin you, people do make sacrifices

Udonis Haslim provided precisely what the Heat needed, and he didn't have to have the ball in his hands to be happy. He was more valuable for the Heat than Webber wouldn've been. Also, Webber seems to be playing on one leg these days. He's a prima donna who doesn't know he's damaged goods and a has been. Timmy needs a Haslim next to him, not a Webber.

And Zo wants to possibly leave Miami for a larger role elsewhere. The Spurs offer the perfect combination of a starting center spot on a championship caliber team. That's where the focus should be.
