That looks like an easy match for Atlanta if Collins keeps this up. To snag an RFA, Dallas needs to go over and above like how they overpaid Barnes for GSW to back off the price tag. I personally do not think Collins is worth $115M or $120M. Kleber can start at PF. He is more effective there. So Dallas' money can be spent for a SF who can average another 15ppg. Send THJ and DFS to the 2nd unit. That would be a strong lineup.
In the past year the Hawks drafted a PF with the 6th pick, traded for Capela, and also signed Danilo... I’m not 100% sure they’d match since they don’t really need that much money dedicated to the PF position... Especially with the looming Trae extension that will put them in luxury tax territory
That's a fair point too.
My reservations with maxing Collins comes from the fact that when we do, that's essentially our team for the next 3 years. That's it. No more cap space, KP, Collins and Luka will be maxed out. Now when you look at it on paper, the question is will those 3 be enough to get you over the Lakers. Maybe if Collins keeps up his 20-10 stat line?
It’s a reach, but I would love for Dallas to pursue a Beal for KP swap if we were to sign another big long term like Collins. A Luka-Beal-Collins trio would be unstoppable
