Usually used for bad contract dumps along with picks. I don't think we want to take on long term money and I think we like Tyler. But sure, if the Wizards want to dump Beal or something, I'll take it. But we say this every year with expirings and they are usually useless, starting with Monroe's.
Yeah, same thing with Chandler and Rivers expiring contracts ... teams would have to send us crappy multi-year contracts and a draft pick to get Tyler and we don't want that. Expiring contracts are mostly overrated unless the team is in the first year of a rebuild (e.g., Grizz or the Nets and Cavs of the past). With Booker and Ayton on board it doesn't make sense.
TJ + Oubre makes up $34.5m in outgoing salary. Blake Griffin salary is $34.5m. Just sayin'
