We're only an undesireable location to play because we're not an established playoff team yet. This is a wonderful city, a city NBA players love, but NBA players hate losing, unless a team significantly overpays.
We had no problem attracting talent when we had players like VC and for a time Bosh.
I mentioned OKC before as an example as a team who has been involved in a number of rumours to land big name players (although they haven't yet as it doesn't make much sense for them).
We need elite talent and a winning culture and players will come. This isn't something that gets built overnight with one or two big free agent signings. Its a long term project.
