Remember, we needed to have Jo 42 minutes on a floor to stand a chance against Raptors. Every time he was on the bench, our lead would disappear or opponent would pull away. With Horford, that wouldn't be the case.
So, we may get a very good 2 years out of him, and one ok. With him, we'd be able to manage load much better for both embiid and, well him. (he won't need to play as much as in Boston)

I'd be happy if we can resign Butler for 5y max, Horford on a 3-year 80-90mil, Redick 3-year 40mil, and add another shooter (like Bojan Bogdanovic, although we probably can't afford him)..

Those knees man, they make me nervous. He loses 5% of his speed and all of a sudden he’s a center only. He’s really not that good of a shooter, only takes them when he’s wide open.

You also probably can’t bring Redick back with Horford making that much, let alone another good shooter.

Maybe we can get him for 5/$170M then so a starting salary of $29M instead of $33M.


What bout Brooklyn with Kyrie?


I'm assuming KD is going there. Also assuming Kemba to BOS.

Even as a vet min, this feels like a waste.

I’d do a min, it’s a potential buy low. He got back to shooting well in Memphis, May have just been a blip.

Pels rumored to be actively hunting for a center and might have interest in Capela. Is there a trade package that we'd want if they were the third team?

I'd be fine to throw bi-annual type money at him. I know he's an advanced stat pariah, but I think in our unique situation of having Ben at PG, he could be a valuable role player as an off ball, point of attack defender.

:nod:

Ingram and one of those future unprotected firsts in 2022 or beyond they got from Lakers. Add in a Houston future unprotected 1st and I think I’m game if Jimmy wants to bounce.

I’m no cap expert, but I don’t think we can offer any more than right around 25M a year to someone if we are maxing Jimmy and keeping JJ...and good god that’s a lot of $ for JJ.

And I don’t see Horford running in transition with Ben and the rest of the team plus he’s not much of a perimeter player other than wide open 3’s. I really don’t see him being the best fit in our offense. There’s no doubt we need a solid big to supplement Jo, but giving stupid $ to Horford isn’t the answer imo. I’d prefer Marcus Morris at the price point no doubt.

Exactly, Embiid + Simmons for Zion, this was the plan from the beginning, Brand wants to go all in. Unfortunately, it is too late and NOP laughs at us fast. Zion has GOAT potential.

I don’t think jimmy or Tobias are getting the max like kawhi when you hear nikola being offered 90 mil and he was an all star this year
But they also don’t like the fit here if they’re both here so I’m predicting a sign and trade jimmy to Houston for Gordon, jaylen brown or smart with a future 1st from Boston and Houston ( capela to Boston obviously) then we sign Harris to 5-150 horford 4-100 with the last year only partially guaranteed bring back jj and Scott to whatever we can afford ( promise more next year) sign luc mbah moute , trey Burke and Kyle o’quin to the minimum and we’re deeper than the champs
Simmons/brown/Harris/horford/Embiid
Burke/jj/Gordon/Scott/o’quin

Man if Kawhi goes to the Lakers, the East is ours for the forseeable future. Bucks are going to lose at least 2 key players this summer, perhaps even more than that. Celtics are treading water at best.

If we run it back we should be the odds on favorite to win the East.

Zach Lowe said Thad Young could be a goner from the Pacers. Would be an excellent bench piece. Not sure how we'd get him though.

I feel like the best version of this team is bringing Scott back/using Bolden as the 4 and then using the other resources to fill in the other spots.

Love thad but it’s just not a fit

When you write things like this-- three consecutive, different, nonsensical statements-- it makes me wonder what you're trying to do. If it's on purpose, I wish you'd cut it out.

Over the limit so let’s start a new thread heading into the opening of free agency.
