Wait until next year.

That's the mantra being pushed in Utah, Denver and Miami now that all of the top free agents have found homes. All three teams had money to burn this summer, but as of Friday, only the Nuggets have anything to show for it.

Sure, the Heat gave an offer sheet to Elton Brand and are flirting with Lamar Odom. The Jazz made a nice offer to Corey Maggette and the Nuggets claimed Andre Miller from purgatory. Do you notice the common denominator in each case?
