I don't really see him turning down a 9M player option to get some kind exemption level contract with us. I guess you could see if they want Ersan and DJ for him in a trade, otherwise no idea how that deal gets done.
I really think he turn down his PO for few reasons. Wants a bigger role with more PT. But your right he probably gets a bigger offer than the MLE on the open market. That's why we would need to be creative to find the cap space for him. Ersans NG and Robin turning down his PO would help. Sign Grant before Giannis and have to willing to go into tax. If not Grant, Millsap would be a smart signing. He has a connection to Bud and has the skill set to unlock Giannis 5 lineups.
I haven't looked at Milsaps stats much, but yeah, he is a guy I think you can get on a bargain contract. He made his money and probably just wants a ring at this point. I prefer him on whatever type of exception versus trying to shed contract to get Grant.
Yeah Milsap would be a good signing on the vet min. Fore though I really think Grant's athletic ability and defense would be a true difference maker. Think he could unlock another level to this team. His mix of speed strength and shooting are rare. Think he could potentially give us a GS death lineup. He has shot around .400 from three the last two years. He also has a reputation for being a tough player who does the dirty work. Yeah he will cost us but really believe he can have a star impact on this team. He is only 26 not injury prone and a elite athlete.
