No birds on Reggie, most we can sign him for is 120% of his last salary, which does little to close the gap with Lou, Noah and Patton
We would need to send out $14 mil in order to make a deal work for Rozier, assuming we are under the tax at the completion of the trade.
And Lou/Patton/Noah/Jackson 120% doesn't quite get there, does it?
Because I'd love to have a bench trio of Rozier/Kennard/Ibaka.
Since Rozier makes less than $19.6 mil and if we end up under the tax after the deal, it's our outgoing salary + $5 mil to match salaries instead of 125%. 125% would be used if we go into the tax after the trade or if the incoming salary is more than $19.6 mil.
To answer your question, I doubt Reggie would be the piece added due to the sign and trade. However, assuming we end up under the tax after the deal, Lou, Fi, Patton, Noah would work. Issue is Noah and Patton aren't helping the Hornets, plus they are already going to be hard capped because of the Hayward sign and trade. So depending on their plans, that would complicated things unless they can reroute those guys elsewhere with us paying to do so.
