$50M in cap space.

Very curious to see who you guys think we should target?

Well the obvious need is at both big positions. We're sort of a patch work right now of vets that shouldn't be starting and young guys who don't do enough to justify starting roles. Rudy can still create his own shot from multiple spots but is slower on D than we need; LMA shoots more3s but hasn't shown much else so far this season. I've been really hard on him especially since we played so well without him in the bubble and he looked like he needed to up his GAF level in pre-season; Trey plays too timidly too often; Luka is still a project whose mental/confidence/consistency/ needs developing; Jakob is a strong D stalwart but his O game is limited because of the non-3, poor FT factors even if we use him more on that end.

Besides a trade where we'd be able to take on salary (have to think about who we could target), I'd say we'd have to target the RFA market: some combination of John Collins/Lauri Markanen and Jarrett Allen would fit our team well in terms of youth, and style of play. Allen doesn't hit 3s either but with his rim finishing and protection are intriguing. On the one hand, he's from Texas; on the other, he's playing on a team that's looking like a contender.

About Collins / Lauri, does signing them mean we give up on Luka? I hope not, so that's why I think we go the C route in who we pursue. Then again, if you can land either one of them, it's kind of a no-brainer and deal with a Luka on a rookie contract overlap. Trey would also have to show something more akin to what we saw when LMA was out, not what he showed in pre-season in order for us to re-sign him. I appreciate the expressions of wanting to be with us, but it's about who steps up most consistently.

p.s. I watched highlights of Milutinov's recent game where he put up 17/14. Solid runner, rim protector, rebounder, and great on the P&R. Not a 3 shooter either. I wonder if we'll ever make anything of this draft pick.

He's also doing pre-game shoot arounds now so he may return sooner than expected!

Well ****:

Spurs said he injured it in the second Q but then he played the rest of the game. Doesn't sound like it's something he can't play around but needs some healing.

That it's the same toe he just came back from is a bit concerning. All his injuries have been foot related. Maybe some extra calcium or something. Weird. Jesus.

EDIT to add:

Looks like top of his foot hitting the floor on his way down. I wonder if he has one of those toe configurations where the second one is longer that the big toe? Is there some sort of protective sleeve they can put on it?

Hopefully he comes back sooner than later.
