NBA free agency predictions?

July 1 marks the beginning of NBA free agency, and what a time it should be. LeBron James is available. So are Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, James' and Bosh's fellow Big Three member Dwyane Wade and -- perhaps briefly, if he re-signs as expected -- Dirk Nowitzki. That's not to mention restricted free agents such as Eric Bledsoe and Gordon Hayward, plus trade targets like Kevin Love. What will happen when the players start moving?

End of the Big Three in Miami?

The Miami Heat's Big Three set out for a three-peat this season. Instead, they got hammered by the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, leading many to speculate that this might be the end of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all together in South Florida. Then again, there are some suggestions all three could stay -- and be joined by Carmelo Anthony. What do you expect to see?
