I thought I read early bird max for him was 4/50?

Not sure how they got up to 55 but whatever this is awesome.

13.75/year for Holmes? I'll take that everyday of the week.

You might be right about 4/$50. Admittedly I'm no cap guru but I too wonder how they jumped from 4/$50.2M to 4/$55M

Also agreed this is an absolute value deal. One of the kinds of deals that allow you to spend elsewhere.

Anyone know our available cap at the momemt ?

I imagine it cannot be hardly anything as of now .

Resigning Mo & Holmes
Signing Len
Trade for Thompson
Drafting Queta

Equals bye bye Bagley . Also might be meaning we trade or not resing Meta & D.Jones now becomes a bit questionable as well .

I think we need to sign or trade for a Pf

WELCOME BACK RICHAUN!

Monte still has time to turn this off-season around.

My next hope is that Tristan deal is dead.

Then move buddy/Bagley for anything not named buddy or Bagley.

Let's gooooo!

Yeah I don’t know how we got there. It almost seems like there’s another deal, but I don’t care because we got Richaun back. He’s my favorite player on the team and I was just getting really sad about being a Kings fan thinking another favorite was gone. Fantastic news.

It may be incentivized. That would trick the money if they did easy ones like fg% or rpg. That way he gets his money but it doesn’t count up front against the cap.

His push shot makes everyone else's job easier. It's a thing of beauty.

Based on some follow up tweets it sounds like the actual contract is like 4/45 or so, but that extra $10m is the trade kicker.

That makes sense and allows it under early Bird rights (47 max) to happen.

I’m very happy with this. It is a rare win for both sides and everyone should be pleased. Richaun has always been one of my favorite underrated players and he worked his ass off the old fashioned way by bringing his lunch pail and his hat hat to work every single day.
And for the team they get a player who is liked and respected by his teammates as a heart and soul guy for a price that is more than reasonable and allows for total future flexibility.

A true win for everyone. Especially us the fans.

Lmao! I was definitely having a rough day thinking he was gone. My posts here aren't that bad compared to my group chats hahaha.

Just happy he's back!

Went and bought his rookie card I've been eyeing, just making sure he resigned first lmao!

The only kings jersey I've bought since the days of peja/bibby/webber.

I thought he was going to be a stud...

Blazers paid Powell a lot. He is naturally best at SG.

Tells me that they already are near a deal to move CJ.

I was saying on the trade board that a CJ/Harris swap makes sense for both sides and works with a fairly equal exchange for need. That would kill Philly as a Buddy trade partner but I still want to go hard core for Siakam. I think he would fit seamlessly here for us.

Assuming the Tristan deal is dead?

Holmes/Len/metu/jones/queta
Bagley/harkless
Barnes/buddy
Haliburton/delon/Ramsey
Fox/mitchell

I'm holding out hope we can make a move for siakam.

Bagley/buddy/ 2 1st round picks. This team wants to win? Show us.

Holmes/Len
Siakam/Harkless
Barnes/Woodard
Hali/Delon
Fox/mitchell

Can use MLE on an Otto porter if we don't think woodard is ready

I was typing up siakam as you posted this. I'd love nothing else but to get that man. Criminally underrated.

I can't see how Philly is a buddy destination. It would require us taking Tobias. Given how much he's paid I think Monte would balk. Defense is the priority this summer, siakam fits that, Harris doesn't.

Maybe there's a 3 team trade out there that makes sense? A team that needs Tobias and has 2 pieces in the 15-20 million range?

Do the clippers want Tobias back?

Bev/Buddy/rondo to Philly
Tobias to LAC
Morris to Sac?

Is that crazy

Let's say Lauri isn't offered much as a RFA, somewhere around Bagley's salary. Would you do a Bagley + draft incentive for him?

Return to Sacramento Kings
