Of course, his contract is one of the worst in the leagues but we gotta take a chance on players as we aren't signing any big time players (yes KP has been bad but I think a change of scenery can do him wonders).
S&T Lowry for KP? Maybe a three way with LA and fillers to Dallas?
That is a solid team moving forward. We gotta take chances!
If we genuinely think that Porzingis can return to form, he would be a great fit on this team. A shot blocking seven footer who can hit threes and score in multiple ways would be fantastic here.
That said, I think Porzingis is washed. I really enjoyed watching the Mads this postseason, but I loathed watching Porzingis. He looked like Bargnani out there, and guys his size don't have a great track record with lower body injuries.
Not just washed. What the hell was that yesterday, on a 2 on 1 break taking (and bricking) a pull-up 3? You have to worry about his decision-making.
But Raps have had success with injury-wracked players, one even leading us to a championship. If our medical team can verify that Porzingis can regain at least some of his former glory, then yeah, he's the one to go for if it only costs us Lowry (plus that horrible salary).
Personally, I'd rather try to get Olynyk and Birch in free agency to have them both handle the 5. It's obviously a lower ceiling, but I'm not sure there's really a high ceiling move available to us this offseason (aside from our draft pick).
Agreed, but I'm not sure how to sign both Birch AND an MLE big. The guys we want (KO, Portis, Theis) would take all or most of the MLE. So if Raps are an over the cap team, they could only sign Birch for the BAE of ~3.8 mill. I think he wants more.
