Looks like Markkanen priced himself out of a reasonable, long term deal.

I'd like to have him on a multi-year deal if possible, using Boucher in a S&T.

Wouldn't be willing to give up a first.
Why Markannen? Boucher is much better, and has much better positive impact on the game according to advanced stats. Is it because of age? I think he's basically Bertans. He's definitely not a unicorn

Boucher is better but also older and due for a new contract.

I prefer Markkanen's potential and age

The bust potential with markenen is huge— at this point I assume he’s most likely another mirotic or donatas Mara..something something.

That said the ages and skill sets make sense for both parties.

Even so, boucher appears to be a bit of a unicorn (both development curve-wise and skill set) and I’m uber curious to see what he does over the first month of the season starting at the 4.

…he’s a total one off and kind of remind me of a mlb loogy— nobodies seem anybody like him and he’s likely to eff people up based on a lack of visual familiarity—- the sight lines are all off with him.

I’d be cool with the dragic return being markkanen. Having him and Boucher off the bench would be really good for scottie having the floor spaced like that. That kind of leaves precious out of the rotation but I’m sure he could find some injury replacement minutes throughout the year.

Flynn/Barnes/Boucher/markkanen is solid.

Schroeder hosed himself. 5.9 x 1 year. Turning down 84 mil... That requires an intervention.

Dang, so Boston got him for that? Pretty big blow that the Celtics and Knicks both got sweet last minute low-risk combo guards after such average off-seasons.

Dumbass. Everyone but him knew he wouldn’t get $100 million in free agency. $84 million was already an overpay by the Lakers.

Donuts has a decent inside game with a shaky 3. Both play no defense though and seem to think they are better than what they are
