I would spend the rest of our money taking on contracts that come with first rounders. Add DLo to the core and acquire more first rounders.

My man.


As long as you keep one max spot open I’m into this idea. My only concern with Dlo is that this season was a produce of Atkinson’s system. Outside of Kawhi most players that left the Spurs system we’re way worse.

I doubt the Knicks would go that route. Honestly I wouldn't be opposed to signing D-lo. I don't think he's a max level player now, but I do think he could grow into such a deal.

I think it happens

I did that calc as well in the last thread. Can't be bothered to look it up, but I *think* they were about $1.3m short of being able to max both KD+KI (assuming they waive/don't take up everything possible, including DLo). Maybe Kyrie pays that? Idk. It's "his" boyhood team.


Post your calculations. I'm serious. I am 100% certain it checks out (coming from an accountant).

His system isn’t anything crazy. It’s run and shoot the 3 lol.

Yes

If they sign Kyrie and Butler or Kyrie and Harris, then Russel is a FA?

Yes, they have to free themselves of his cap-hold to sign two 30%-FAs

I honestly would sign him to a max. I think his contract projects better than Kyries for the next 4 years and moving forward.

I even did some math and if you trade DSJr, Knox, 2020 Knicks 1st and the 2021 Mavs 1st for Beal, then we'd have a max slot open for Giannis/Towns/etc in 2021.

Allegedly Washington was willing to trade Beal for RJ+Frank+2020-NYK-FRP. I don't think DSJ+Knox cut it, but who knows. Either way it seems terribly cheap for Beal. It's hard to see that deal straight up - but maybe I'm really wrong here.

Anyway, sure. If you take on no salary beyond 2021 you have loads of space in 2021. But why are Giannis, Towns etc going to be interested in coming to a team that is for two years Beal + the kids + (doesn't matter as they go to open the cap space)?


Well for one, you'd have to show that Beal/Barret/Mitch and DLo are better supporting cast than Middleton and Brogdon or Wiggins and ?

I think both of those are 100% true. Also Towns is a local kid and fits with Mitch like a glove. I can't think of a better fit tbh lol.

plus it's sort of a conflict of interest. why would you want an agent from a company who also works with a specific franchise you might sign with ? you want someone who only has your interest at heart.

I don't really see why the Nets don't go for DLo + one of Harris or Butler. Maybe Butler would think that beneath him, but Harris maybe not. And it gives them more room to get complementary pieces.

This is Kyrie we're talking about. Is it surprising? is it?

If we miss out on James Wiseman and Anthony Edwards there are 3 strong PGs in the draft that could replace DSJ if things don’t work out - RJ Hampton, Cole Anthony and Theo Maledon.
