Thanks mate. I've tried but never understood this stuff before. Appreciate it.
So technically, if we can have the role players and AD hold off on verbal agreements for a bit like KD's second year @ GSW, we could technically trade a useless 15.3 mil peice(ergo Danny Green) for a sign and trade scenario of a 25 mil(15.3+9.8) FA over the summer. And later resign all of them back.
That's very interesting and opens up a whole new world of prospects. Too bad we don't have any decent pieces to trade for someone like a Ben Simmons. But we could easily jump into negotiations with higher salary FAs while only sacrificing a couple of pieces.
Yea the CBA can get confusing unless you spend time poring over the fine print. I'm just so happy there's a nice tool like the Capulator to help armchair REALGms like myself
I can see AD willing to do the Lakers a solid in order to add on more talent, by holding off in declining his player option, cuz he knows he's gonna get a max no matter what.
Role players OTOH have to do whats best for themselves and will opt out as early as possible, if there's a market for their services and getting more money than the existing option that theyre on. This is a terrible FA crop, where freaking FVV is considered for getting a huge ass deal, why wouldnt KCP or Rondo opt out ASAP, if they have a good bubble playoff run, and try to parlay it for a fat deal elsewhere.
McGee has been woefful, i dunno why he got a 2 year deal :/
I'm from Toronto and the feeling here is he's gonna stay here forever, and Raps gonna have all the Cap space and Masai's influence to close this one out before he sees open market. He's a great dude. I don't know of a team that won't covet him in the league in any season. Great dude and player.
But there are great FA's like Ibaka, Galinari, Bogdanovic, Bertans, Joe Harris, Mike Conley, Korver, Reddick which shouldn't be unobtainable cos of the money anymore.
We could also technically try to bring back Lonzo, sans Lavaar, if Pels don't wanna pay him 14 mil or extend him for 2022--23. He would be a great 2nd/3rd PG with Lebron and non playoff Rondo. He's an improved playmaker and shooter now, and played 63 games in proper basketball shoes this year.
I only wish we could somehow get some assets to trade for Ben Simmons. I'm sure Lebron can make him comfortable enough to shoot without pressure. He's already one of the league's best play makers and a sure fire future DPOY. With Lebron, AD, Bradley and him, it's a sure title next year.
