bro, stop with the hyperbole you know damn well that's not a fair deal...no gm would tender that offer, that's a joke offer considering the production playoffs or not. He'll get paid pretty close to what he's worth, no one is going to overpay for vuc he'll get a fair offer from us whether some of us like it or not.
(tangent) I keep seeing some people say "let vuc walk and sure we'll take a step back to take two forward" yeah....if taking a step back means another rebuild then i really have to question the direction of the franchise, we have to build on what we have now that we finally got SOMETHING going instead of being in the lottery every single year without fail. Give Vuc a fair deal, that is structured in a way that down the line it'll be tradeable if and when Bamba is ready to take over which is definitely not now or for the near future i think bamba is at least 2 years away.
I believe the FO has full autonomy to make these decisions however i doubt that ownership would be cool with "taking a step back" after finally seeing life around the amway arena, playoffs are great for business and at this point that's the direction we should be trending in.....we didn't rebuild correctly, that much is clear but at some point you have to get out from underwater man...7 years....i'm done with "taking a step back"
In general, I fully agree. It's sickening only to think of going back to loser's mentality that surrounded all those lottery years.
But considering possible development of Bamba, we might be looking to trade Vučević prior to 2021/22 season and in such case, his next contract must be tradeable from that moment forward. I don't care all that much about his salary in first two years of the contract.
If we can achieve that, not only we're set until Bamba develops, but also covered if by some chance he busts.
Trouble is, Vučević is unrestricted FA and there will be teams driving his price out of range suitable for mentioned scenario. In such case, we should think hard before committing to potentially bad contract in 2021/22.
