KD and Klay are going to get new max deals. Teams are still going to line up to give them money.
As for Vucevic's market...if anything, the C market just got more crowded.
Cousins performance in playoffs proved he's still solid even at half point of normal recovery time. His type of injury usually has player returning close to form by second season. Someone is going to pay him starter money.
26 year old Valenciunas just entered FA, that's yet another starting caliber C on the market.
OKC has Adams, Portland has Nurkic, Denver has Jokic and Houston has Capella. Three of those 4 teams are in deep luxury tax as is. Their flexibility is extremely limited. If they trade their center, they have to refill it with trade as they aren't creating cap to use in free agency, just lessening their tax debt.
Wasn't talking about Vuc going to any of those teams, more along the lines that those western conference teams could be looking to package meh $/dead cap and late 1st pick for shooters/role players. Orlando should be all over trying to get another 1st for EF even if it meant taking on a little more $ in return.
C market is solid (Vuc, Kanter, Lopez, Dedmon, Jordan) but have to imagine teams are more looking to wait and fill spots with other positions and swing back to grab a cheap C later.
Valanciunas is likely to re sign in Memphis and opted out for a long term deal vs risking playing on 1 year deal. Cousins is still unknown due to his injury & I don't envision him getting more than MLE.
Biggest threat with Vuc is and will be Sacramento.. They could easily clear 34+M in Cap Space offer Vuc 22-25+ a year and have 10ishM to play with for better bench depth wouldn't be a bad off season for them.
