Current line up

SVI(23) / Musa(21) / McGurder
Sekou(20) / Bay(21) / DEV(20)
Blake / Ariza
Dedmon / Stewart(19) / Roberts(23)

WOOD. It's Christian WOOD, not Woods.

For some reason that mistake annoys me more than it should.

Hollinger explained the Dedmon and McGruder trades - Stretch Provision. Since both have 1M guaranteed(buyout) in contracts through next season that doubles their stretch years. IIRC Stretch is double remaining length of contract + 1 year. So Both McGruder and Dedmon can be stretched over five seasons. Dedmon's 14M owed can be stretched out to >$3M a season, so stretch him and Detroit, or whichever team he's traded to, opens up $10M is cap space. McGruder's stretched cap hit would be $1M over next five years - so shaving off $4M this year off his cap number.

This could be why Weaver has been indicating he's going to be aggressive in free agency. $11M in FA money plus the ability to get 15M more while taking on $4M in combined stretch over each of the next four seasons.

If Detroit stretched Snell it would have been over three seasons.

If not 6pm it would've been 12AM tomorrow how it used to be.

Everything is quiet around the league because they know the league is witch hunting tampering with teams right now.

Woj literally **** the Bucks and the Kings.

FVV reportedly likely to stay in Toronto. Makes sense- he really likes it there and has a major role since they play him beside Lowry.

Apparently Miami is also resigning Meyers Leonard to a deal starting at $9mm per year. Meyers Leonard. Moral of the story? Wood is about to get PAID.

Yeah...if Meyers gets 10 mill, yikes.

Put me more in the “let’s not keep him” camp now.
