I guess if you are going to be capped out, might as well be with young players who are decent.

Not sure if Minny is capped out due to bird rights etc. I'd think even with Towns on a rookie deal they have to be close. But the team is fairly set and it's not like they don't have players other teams might want if for some reason the pieces don't quite mesh (which I think will)

Not a fan of Wiggins. I think he's a ball stopper. But that seems to be the market so...

It had something to do with his former agent and compensating him. He basically had the agent negotiate the contract for him and fired him before signing it.

Few players get to Melo(prime) level.

I'd rather roll the dice on Embiid, who would be worth this deal healthy, than Wiggins who won't.

He is worth his deal though.

31 games :lol:

Not laughing at your logic. Just think that Embiid got paid for less than 800 mins, and everyone involved knows that he will probably never be healthy.

Some of these deals are better than others. CJ makes less, for example. I get that they kind of had to do it in this cap environment. When things inevitably settle down in a few years, I think they're gonna regret it though.

Wiggins is def not worth it right now. But he still has a lot of potential. Amazing tools. + durability, that's important. :D

Really, what else are they gonna spend it on?

Also - he was waiting for Kevin Love and Lebron to get his thank you delivery from 1-800 Flowers for making sure he didn't wind up in Cleveland. That place is going to be awful next year.
