As much as I want to find a gem in free agency, I just don’t see one out there. The FA class is horrific and lots of teams have money.
Right now, that plan looks like an awful decision. We can talk in 15 games or so and see then.
There is absolutely zero chance that Zach gets a raise and extension. Do you know how many times that has happened in NBA history? It doesn't happen.
It’s a pretty unique situation. You have to have an all star level player who is paid significantly less than the max and soon to be an unrestricted free agent and the team needs a significant amount of cap space.
I am aware, but can you name one example of a player in Zach's position getting a renegotiation? It would be stupid, it would take something like $17 million in cap space to get Zach to the max this summer, and the team would be much better off spending that $17 million on a free agent.
It's not going to happen, no way, no how. But folks are more than welcome to dream if they want.
