Wtf.

Literally won't commit a second longer than George can be here? And they both can opt out and leave us hanging in 2021..

First, this should have been anticipated. He will be in his 10th year of service, which means he is eligible for a max starting at 35% of the cap.

Additionally, this puts us squarely into the Giannis race, should he not sign an extension.

He really has no reason to opt out. Get the extra year on the back end of career at 36 with a 5 year deal

Won’t have the 5th year as leverage if he opts out after two

Good God if we have to do all of this over again in 2021.
:banghead:


We have 2 full years to enjoy this, which is a relative luxury now. :D I'm not gonna worry about 2 years from now, that kind of window is for worrying about your personal life and goals. 8-)

Is the first year a full max or did he leave some spare change on the table to maximize our remaining cap?

I PREFER THIS

flexibility is better than no flexibility

if no chip in 2/3 years--what's left of his and PG's prime-prime--then better to try something else

if he doesn't want money guaranteed that's good for the org, not him

crazy MFer though
betting on his health
he's taking the risk, not the org

Yea Clippers are under the gun to win it all in 2 years, otherwise Kawhi + PG13 might bolt. However what sucks the most is that this may affect FA strategy next year. The team might not be willing to dole out large deals to retain JaGreen and Harrell, cuz they dont want to clog up cap space to chase other FAs that might be available. Also already having deals like MacGruder, PatBev, and Zubac already on the books too, so i dunno if the team will have 2 35% max slots available to reload, if the worst case happens.

Lakers are in a worse spot, they have to do well next year or else AD might bolt, and Lebron shortly after him, leaving them a desolate wasteland with no picks to rebuild and a dumpster fire FO/ownership group flailing about.

Personally i have ALOT more confidence that the LAC FO wont **** things up, unlike the LAL FO. However this does put ALOT of pressure over the next 2 years. Oddly enough i thought PG13 signed a 4+1 max deal with OKC, i guess he only signed 3+1 huh.

He left a lot of money on the table by leaving the Spurs and then leaving the Raptors.

A LOT of money.

So it's not surprising if he would want to "claw" some of that lost money back. :D

He navigated the twitter rumors last year with no problem.

While I don't want to deal with the noise (and annoying Laker fans), Kawhi can.

If that is what he really wanted, he could have saved himself the trouble and done that this summer. He didn't.

Fir the first time since 2k11, I'm gonna get 2K this season. But I hate the coverboy because he plays for the Lakers.

one thing we've learned
Kawhi's MO is
keeping his options open

LeBron could break down
AD could leave
and Kawhi would have been stuck there

revisit the whole thing in 2 years
