There’s 0 percent chance we sign anything of note.

For hook or crook they will be going after Giannis and signing Harrell would impede that.

We will sign a bunch of 1 year deals and go with relatively the same group.

Ibaka is def gone and replaced with Dewan/FRP.


No he doesnt. I dont want Harrell, but this is one area he actually excels. He's good at switching out onto smaller guards and wings and doing a decent job. Where he struggles is against legit size, like Jokic or Embiid and he doesnt have the wing skills to play PF in the modern NBA. It makes him far too situational for my likes

That said, I'm guessing he's hoping to make 20+ Million, which seems insane to me.

I think the only realistic way we could get him would be similar to how GS signed Boogie before last season. If we're without a starting C, having him as a one year MLE starter would give him the opportunity to boost his value for next summer when more teams have cap room.


I would pay him the MLE in a heartbeat. Then we could trade for someone like Nemanja Bjelica.

Bring Harrell and Beal home for the chip :nod: :nod:


Man...idk what playoffs you were watching but you sound like a pinhead right now. Pascal was arguably our best defender in the playoffs, especially in that Boston series. He struggled mightily on offence, but locked up both Tatum and Brown.

Don't need Harrell.

We should be looking at Nerlens Noel and Harry Giles via free agency and Myles Turner via trade.

This rumour sounds like an negotiation tactic to stress out Ibaka.

He is for sure a keeper and the Raps will focus on keeping him because big men who can shoot the three are extremely valuable. He also does a good job of protecting the basket and he is one of the best in the league in the screen and roll aspect of the game.

Keeping your fellow Africans will help to attract Giannis so I expect Serge to be our starting center next season and if Giannis ever comes here he can easily fit into his style of play or come off the bench. They may overpay him just to get him to sign a one year deal and that allows them to sign him to a longer deal in 2021 when they can go over the cap in retaining their own players.

We keep Ibaka for a year at most to keep the cap room so maybe on that end he stays but no way it’s a multi year deal or 21 is out of the picture.

?

He’s only good at guarding man to man. Has no PnR ability.

Why else would he play less than 20 minutes for getting abused defensively.

I’d rather draft Tillman and play him in a Harrell role.
At one point I wanted Siakam, Harrell and Bam on this team with Spicy playing the 3 but then OG really showed out this year so I’d prefer if OG got more minutes than having to siphon of minutes to Trezz.
If the money’s right, I wouldn’t mind him as a Raptor.

Really good offensive player, equally weak defensively. Not sure how he fits with Siakam, OG.

He's also going to be expensive, probably in the 16m-22m range

Ujiri makes the decision not Raps fans. Harrell would 6th man of the year back up to Paskal and play 18 minutes at centre. He probably is signed for the MLE. That's 10 mil for a big to give more depth at power forward and Centre. It is what it is. It is far from outrageous as an acquisition.

What were you watching? Overall those 2 dominated us. Maybe he slowed them down in small stretches but that's it.

Question to capalogists:
Is there a realistic way to sign Fred, Ibaka, Harrel AND maintain 2021 max contract cap space?

Of course - one year deals.

No.

Ibaka at best stays for a year and then he is renounced and cap hold rescinded.

Fred likely stays and if he’s around 20 mil, makes it just fit for a max spot.

Issue now has to do with the cap going down due to COVID and revenue lost.

Harrell coming here would be a bad indicator for 21 intentions unless we plan on dealing Fred.

Its you that wasn't watching buddy.

Brown 4/17 from deep. Both combined 22/60 with 10 turnovers when guarded by Siakam. lol
maybe you were just watching 5 minutes highlights clips after the games.
