And I want to see what Brunson is capable of with heavy minutes before he gets that large new contract. Do you really want to sign Brunson to $18M per without seeing a full season of heavy minutes with him first? You only get to do that IF he gets the position to himself. Not giving it to old man Dragic. It's too risky IMO.
Agreed on all point. Mavs got to think long-term with this. We're not contending this year.
I'd only take Dragic as injury insurance at this point. If he wants to play more meaningful minutes, then Dragic should go play for a contender (assuming he's bought out).
Agreed. Dragic's value right now is just sentimental IMO. Just fans wanting players from the same country to unite. It's a feel good story, but it does nothing for Dallas long term. You invest in Brunson, but you gotta see if he can be consistent with heavy minutes first. That's a huge contract waiting to happen IMO. You cant risk tying that amount to an unknown commodity.
