For everyone disappointed he opted in, the Warriors might be a taker now. They have a TPE which would fit his salary, and need someone to do a Klay Thompson impersonation this year.

I'd say we wouldn't want a TPE, they'd probs try send it to another team for another player.

If Harden gets traded then either Dinwiddie or Levert could fit into that exception. What we send in replacement? Bamba + protected picks? Help Houston shred salary and add youth to their rebuild.

Yea, that could make sense to bring a 3rd team into it. But my understanding is that once we do a deal like this, you will get a TPE that you have up to 1 year to use. So the deals wouldn't have to happen at the same time.

Financially it might be best to let Fournier play out his contract over trading him.

Feels like the Oubre deal just reset the value on a lot of guys who might potentially be traded. A TPE and a top 20 protected 1st for someone who's value probably sits around Fournier and Gordon's levels.

I just don't see WeHam valuing that kind of return.

Why? Is Orlando signing someone in free agency of value?

Fultz and JI need extensions next year. Adding salary makes it harder to extend both them under luxury tax.

In the 2021 off-season, yes I would predict that.

maybe if we trade AG or Aminu, otherwise we are in the same place next year over the cap, and not much room under luxury.
Assuming we plan on bringing Fultz an JI back. If Fultz is deemed a lost cause, then maybe we have enough to bring in one big free agent, probably not a max, but maybe close. He does have a big caphold, i guess they wouldn't offer him a QO

I've never wished injury on a player before, but... no I still can't do it.

This is probably gonna be his year, I mean most guys tend to have their break out season in their 9th season right?


Btw if you guys thought Evan was going heavy on the hero ball crap last year to try and get a big contract, wait til this year when he doesn't have a player option to fall back on, he's probably gonna go full on t-ross with the starting unit and shoot the ball every time he touches it

He had a great year before getting injured in the bubble

Stat-wise sure
But as far as playing winning, team basketball...nope
