It's true that in terms of cap space it's the new standard franchise player contract

But it's still not $20 mil in real life. It's $30.
That's not an issue for the Knicks or lakers but the wolves aren't a profitable team and this sure isn't gonna help.

It's getting to be a league where a couple teams can compete because they have talent stacked and a couple of teams can afford to pay for talent.

But there is no way they will be able to pay butler, Wiggins and towns the super max deals they will all be on at some point soon.

Things will change
The league can't have 6 profitable teams and the rest losing while handing out these contracts


It's not the league's job to prevent teams from giving out contracts they can't afford.

Obviously not

But it might be a factor in the new cba negiotiations

Well, CBA negotiations aren't going to be happening until at least 2022. The NBPA won't be trying to find ways to help the owners make money. If teams want to spend wildly while staying within the confines of the cap / under the BRI split, it's their choice.

Still think KP is signing a QO, and turning down an extension from the Knicks? lol
Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.

unreal

and people complained about Melo's salary


this guy has done nothing to earn that contract

Hell Id have included him in the Butler deal and made him Chi's problem and held onto LavIne or the pick

30mm is the new 20mm per year, but that's not the point. wiggins isn't a good player, and he's making bank. that's the issue at hand.

that's why teams have sponsors on their jerseys, so every team can have extra money laying around.

last year only 5, i think it was, teams made a profit
those profitable teams shared part of their profits with the ones who lost money
4, I think, of those teams still lost money after the payout

one of those teams were the Cavs even with James and their 3rd straight finals appearance

if the cars loose money what are the wolves or the bobcats or the griz gonna do?

A dude like this who can elevate and throw down highlight dunks does put a$$ez in seats. As weak as T-pups ticket sales may be, Wiggins has to be one of the reasons they do go because of this, and his scoring overall, even if it appears he may be behind where he was originally projected to be at this point. Not too many players in the league have the ability to highlight yam/posterize Rudy Gobert twice in one game. His elevation with the ball is seriously insane.

It'll be interesting to see what this young group does going forward with the addition of Butler, who could be exactly what this team needs to lead them, galvanize the defense, and finally start winning games.

^^^you sir are smart


Wiggins has already established himself as a franchise staple in his short time wearing blue and white. He is already the sixth on the team's all-time leading scorer's list, with 4,995 points, and has made his mark in the greater league as well, with only LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony totaling more points than he has at 22. All in all, Wiggins has averaged 20.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists since the 2014 draft that saw him traded to Minnesota from Cleveland in a deal that sent Kevin Love over to the Cavs. And with each season his numbers have steadily risen, with career highs in points averaged (23.6) and three point shooting percentage (35.6%).

Wiggins' extension keeps the pieces together in Minnesota for what many believe will be a dynamic young trio in Wiggins, Jimmy Butler, and Karl-Anthony Towns.



Look at this Highlight reel that nba.com made in August... Yeah Nobody in Minnesota cares about Wiggins and dont come out to see him do what he do...SMH. This video proves otherwise. Its simple mathematics, but you got cats who it must be to complex to and want to argue/quote just to do it.





Yeah nobody comes out wanting to see that^^^^
