2021 Free Agency 

Post#1 » by codydaze » Mon Aug 2, 2021 9:30 pm

We have a lot a free agency talk bleeding into the trade thread so I thought I would open up a new thread specifically for free agency talk.

I'll start with this hypothetical. If it looks like we have a shot of getting Holmes back on a 4/60 deal and Jarrett Allen may be offered 5/100 from Cleveland, would you rather the Kings overpay Allen on a 4/90 offer or have Holmes back at 4/60?

I'd rather have Allen but signing Holmes on a 3 or 4 year early bird rights deal is such a quality signing.

Noel got 3/$32M

Holmes early bird is still in play. Rumor has it Toronto could be the competition. Pay attention to the Lowry S&T

Uh oh, Is it a coincidence Dallas has maneuvered the cap where they have $14M left after Hardaway, WCS, ect? Wasn't Holmes linked to them?

I was worried about this. But don't they need another guard? They already have KP, WCS, Boban, Kleber, and Powell tying up center spot.

Ya kinda surprised they wouldn't just take Buddy for free at that point. Wonder if we wanted something in return.

Duncan Robinson just signed a 5/90. Am I crazy for thinking Buddy on his deal is way more valuable than that?

Dallas has such a scrambled roster outside of Luka and THJ. They need good players everywhere.

Zach Lowe, today on ESPN's FA show, said Buddy Hield has now become an undervalued player in the league. Meaning he's not a negative contract like the T&T board loves to think.

Ya I agree. But just a quick look at the depth chart

KP/Powell/Boban/WCS
Kleber
DFS/Green
THJ
Luka/Brunson/Burke

They need a lot in terms of 2-4. Sure they are a threat, but I wouldn't like it for them at all.

Slide Holmes or KP to the 4. Trade Powell/Burks for Dragic. That's my best guess and I didn't check salary

Harkless back on $4.5 million a year. Not bad for some wing depth.

Mo Harkless 2/$9M is decent. He played really well in Sac. God knows we need wing depth

2/9 million is a steal for him as a bigger multi position guy. It’s also a prove it deal like Holmes came here on.

I like it.

Return to Sacramento Kings
