2014 NBA free agency is underway, but there's a slight holdup in the signing action because of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Where will they sign? Which dominos will fall once one of the two makes a decision?
Here's a look at all the latest major buzz surrounding the NBA's free agency period in 2014 after one week:
Riles is set to meet with LeBron James in Las Vegas any minute now. Many believe this will be their final meeting, but in a good way for the Heat. With all of the big three opting out of their contracts, the writing could already be on the wall.
Gasol is being courted by a multitude of teams, but it appears the Bulls and Lakers are out in front of the pack for the PF's services. Not bad for a 34-year old who's been banged up the past couple years.
Why are these three talented players rumored to be uninterested in joining the Heat? Simple -- not enough money to go around.
Kobe Bryant is reportedly recruiting players to Los Angeles to help get him another ring. Blake and Butler are supposedly on his FA wish list, which makes sense. Mamba loves him some Blake, and Butler is still well above average.
Bosh may or may not have told the Rockets that he wants to play in Miami next season with LeBron. But if things don't work out in South Beach, he'll have about 96 million reasons to take his talents to Houston.
There's a reason #BeforeMeloDecides has been trending worldwide on Twitter. The scoring machine is reportedly torn between the Bulls, Knicks and Lakers, and he has been for quite some time. The Knicks thought they'd know his decision by now, so you have to believe he's really mulling over joining all three teams.
Just like other free agents, Stephenson isn't interested in playing for the Heat at a discounted rate. Plus, he and LeBron on the same team would just be plain awkward... As for his 'current' team, the Indiana Pacers, they also haven't offered him an 'appropriate' amount of money.
After dealing Jose Calderon for Raymond Felton, you can understand why the Mavs want more PG help. The 11-year veteran would surely make a nice addition to the Dallas bench.
Humphries might be one of the most hated players in the league, but he'll make a nice addition for a team in need of 8 and 6 per game.
After countless Gasol-to-the-Bulls trade rumors over the past few years, it seems like the veteran forward might finally end up in the Windy City. He's interested, the Bulls are interested, but it could come down to a matter of money and/or threats from Kobe.
