Beal > Pandemic P


Not a chance. At least Paul George plays defense. Beal will never be a Hall of Famer, PG is already a lock.

If Kawhi wanted out wouldn't he just opt out and become a free agent?
Don't think it will happen but it would so be so amazingly Clippers if it did.

Kawhi is not going anywhere. He left a potential repeat champion to go home to LA. If he wanted to win, he would have signed with the Lakers. He went to LAC because he knew they organization would go along with anything he wanted, especially after they traded all of their future away for him. He'll re-sign in LAC, with a NMC.

The stars that will probably be available this summer are: Beal, Simmons (if Sixers don't make it out of the East - most likely - Morey was not brought in to sit on his hands), McCollum (if the reason the Blazers picked up Norm was to be his replacement - frees them up to move CJ for talent), Kyrie (if they don't win and need to add depth)

If Covid is still popping maybe we can relocate to San Diego for the year.

Kawhi isn’t leaving the Clippers. He signed that deal to maximize his earnings. Next contract is same as what PG got.

Kawhi is not coming back.

As for Beal, if I'm going to pay for an elite scoring SG with no defense, I'd rather wait for Lavine.

No rational person believes Kawhi is leaving LA yet Tom Haberstroh puts it in his article. Reviewing his resume, its not impressive, must be connected. Why does he push this angle? That's really the question here.

Ya I was thinking how if they don’t win this year and he opts out and leaves the clippers will have karma bite them big time especially with them giving up picks to okc for a ton of years lol

Neither are leaving their teams... in any event it's all irrelevant to Toronto as there has never been a top free agent choose Toronto.

Just clickbait. Only reason Kawhi signed the 2 year deal is to become a 10 year vet and then sign a max deal. His new max deal can now be up to $165 million total instead of $140.

Isnt he allowed to sign that super max now? I thought that was why the rumors have gathered some steam. Because when he became eligible to sign the supermax extension....he didnt do it right away.

Does seem like a rather risky move for a guy with chronic knee injury. His agent is probably scared af. One bad jumpshot landing could cost him 160 million.

Kawhis not eligible for a supermax, can only be offered if he was drafted by that team. He can get the 10 year vet max which is about $25 million more than the 7-9 year vet max. I'm not sure on the time of when he can sign this deal.

Who is eligible to sign a supermax contract?

Very few players qualify for a supermax contract. First, only a player that has (or will have) completed eight years of NBA service by the end of his current contract is eligible to sign a supermax deal, which can only be offered by the team that drafted him or traded for his rookie contract.

Kawhi would probably rather go to Dallas then come back here.
