I like him. Its going to take someone like him being offered to even get the Spurs to listen. IMO, because he might not play at all next year that it would take a lot more than just him to get Leonard. I think we are still in a win-now mode because of Aldridge's age so waiting a year for Porzingis might not be ideal at this time.
Porzingis seems to be a bit injury prone and I didn't like his comments about being "tired" early in the season before he got hurt. (which is funny considering Leonard was out all season) but Kawhi is considered a top 5 player in the league and he is signed for next year. Which means the Spurs can ask for the moon and the stars for him right now.
Plus the salaries arent even close and I doubt we want to take on any of the bad contracts the Knicks have.
If Kanter opts out I think Knicks would have the space to absorb Kawhi's contract.
Nevertheless, if Bud was able to unlock Tim Hardaway Jr's potential Pop would be able to do so as well.
I know Kanter said he is considering opting out but I can't imagine he actually does. Market is going to be very tight this summer and there isn't much cap room to go around. Not to mention he isn't that good.
He'll take the 18mill.
