He fits that team's(Celtics) timeline probably much better than the Pels and AD would probably be a draft night trade if it were to happen.
That would be screwed up Boston is racist as hell. That's part of the reason Kyrie wants out he'd be leaving money on the table to get away from there.
I would think the Nets wouldn't do Dlo like that.
(I can't find vc4p's original post so I'm quoting you to trigger his notifications.)
Do you have links/URLs of those interviews? I don't remember hearing him saying anything about doing a S&T.
As Speedy said, one was from an article from ND. which was from an interview with either a sports magazine or like ESPN recently, believe it actually might have been from an article from SLAM!online.
The other one I think was from a podcast.
For the record, I do not think a S&T is likely. As others have alluded to, they are very difficult to pull off and with today's CBA, they benefit the player very little unless he's looking to get to a very specific destination and don't even benefit the team he's going to, too much, unless said team doesn't have nearly enough cap space to make a move, especially in this situation where other teams with max cap know there's a chance we don't match an offer sheet, taking away a lot of the RFA threat.
But it certainly could be possible and DLo confirmed his recognition of the situation during these interview(s) lately and seemed like he'd consider playing ball, at least if it made sense for him and his incoming team.
There is a sizable benefit to him obliging though, in certain scenarios. If the threat of RFA still exists, it's easier for him to get the max at his new destination, no questions asked. Where as if we renounce him, he might come in $20 million + light over the course of a 4 year deal, because teams won't need to force our hand and a few of the teams who have him in their sights don't have full max cap.
