Boston would need to have AL Horford to opt out to have any cap space.
Think DLo has 3-4 teams who could make it happen : Utah, Indy Orlando Suns Brooklyn and I have them in that order of likeliest to least.
Utah has 14M in Cap Space after renouncing Rubio, Thabo, Ekpe and 2 other bums. They could create more by waiving Favors 16.9M 0$0 non guaranteed and Korver's $7.4 only $3.4M guarenteed deal. Would get them to 34M of open space.
Indy - Has some solid cap hits 20M Thad young, 15M Cory Joseph, 14.8M Tyreke Evans, Bogdanovic 13.6M and Darren Collison 13M. Pick 2 or 3 and renounce and you've got the 28-30M room for DLo.
Orlando- Would have to renounce Vuc + TRoss + Martin + Grant to get to 17M, then could waive and stretch Moz to get to 27M.
Suns - Would need Tyler Johnson to decline 19.2 M player option, renounce Oubre, Bender, Daniels, Holmes and Crawford.
Brooklyn- Grab Kyrie and re sign DLo... seems extremely unlikely.
That's an awesome summary!
But by doing a S&T w/BRK, couldn't BOS go over their cap to sign him using his Bird Rights? Both Kyrie and DLo would get the most they could get in that scenario.
$27M doesn't sound like enough for us to compete for him. As much as people say players look for playing time, winning, fit... they still choose money over all when coming out of their rookie deals.
I hope Utah ends up with Conley... they have been linked. DLo w/Dipo could either be like Lillard/McCollum or be a total misfit. Suns are probably drafting a PG, plus they will be using a big chunk of change on Oubre. Don't count out Brooklyn.
If CHI drafts Garland or White, I would check on the availability of Kris Dunn.
DLo would have to agree to a S&T and if anything why would Brooklyn do this knowing they can sign Kyrie outright and possibly keep Dlo? Like you said Brooklyn somewhat holds the cards here until Dlo signs an offer sheet.
I agree that 27M isn't enough this year but it could start at 27 and work it's way up? DLo is only 23 so it's not like the higher money later on would hurt in terms of age.
I could see Utah ending up with Conley on draft night, Indy is the interesting fit here and maybe Clippers that's a HUGE maybe? . When does Dipo plan to be back? Dlo could run the show for a year if Dipo still needs time. A Dipo Dlo backcourt would be solid and fun to watch for sure.
