1: Offer Zach a max extension (adds 3/75 onto his deal) if he says no, trade him immediately for the most you can get. Either the Bulls didn't offer or Zach said no. So trade LaVine for as much as you can get now.
2: Trade Lauri for as much as you can get.
3: Trade Coby / Wendell if you feel you can get good value.
4: Trade Sato/Thad if you can get expirings + anything good (even 2nd rounders).
5: Use your massive cap room in 2021 do all you can to get extra picks.
Rebuild as if you have absolutely nothing on the roster at this point.
No chance Zach accepts that extension, so this is basically the scorched earth approach. I like it.
Wiggins is the perfect bad contract for us to eat. We could get legit value back. And it expires with 1-year left on Patrick Williams deal which would be the most opportune time for us to make big moves.
Wiggins looks like the worst contract in the league. He isn't able to do anything on the court right now. Just a truly awful player.
If the Warriors had any assets to ship off with him I would do it, but I don't think they have any picks or prospects to make the dump work. It would have been awesome to swap something around Wendell/Zach for Wiseman/Wiggins. I could see them interested in Lauri.
