Hard to say. It doesn't matter at all if multiple teams want to give D'Lo the max; Brooklyn doesn't totally control the situation. It only matters if the team D'Lo wants to go to is in a position to not be able to give him the max (say, Minnesota). The control Brooklyn has keeps them in a tough spot in that they can only match, or not match, an offer sheet if D'Lo signs one. At that point, no S&T can be constructed. So, yes, they can control it by matching D'Lo, but that means that they take on his full max salary at the point of matching, and cannot trade him for one full year from when they match without D'Lo's approval, and they cannot trade him at all to whomever signed D'Lo to the offer sheet.
So, it's hard to say. I think you'd be looking at maybe a future 1st? Maybe a 2nd or two? Unless you were willing to take back salary, at which point the value would increase, but that would decrease your cap space. And if you had any real interest in keeping him, you wouldn't be convinced to S&T him, you'd just match him. It's a weird spot.
