Seems like a Knick thing to do but they already got Kemba.

Yeah sure, good luck Rockets with finding a trade.

Buyout incoming.

Yeah I mean unless they're surrendering their own first round picks to get out of that contract why would anyone do that at all.

Getting paid 40+ million to not do your job. Where can I negotiate a deal like that?

Is there an equally bad contract in the league?

Even getting the salaries to match in a trade is a huge undertaking.

Not as bad. Wall's contract has an extra 50 million added for the same amount of years.

Edit: It's actually 30 million. I mistakenly counted last year's amount as well.

Wall hasn't played more than 41 games since '16-17, and his athleticism/burst is a big part of what made him special in his early 20s.

What a disastrous contract. Hope he ends up a Sixer :lol:

I know Wash lucked out in part because of the Lakers doing Lakers things, but man what a great deal that turned out to be for them.

May be a good opportunity to get dragics contract involved.

Of course not but they could help facilitate a deal. Not really sure I’d want this but here is an interesting one:

Raps out: dragic, Boucher, Yuta, 2023 2nd, (waive decker, Gillespie)
Raps in: porzingis

We take a relatively cheap flyer on porzingis, if anyone can keep his healthy it’s us.

Rockets out: wall, wood
Rockets in: love, Rubio, Powell

Rockets get better bad contacts and don’t lose picks, maybe be able to flip them for something small

Cavs out: love, Rubio
Cavs in: wall, raps 2023 2nd, mavs 2022 top 20 protected 1st

Cavs take worse money for some draft capital

Mavs out: porzingis, 2022 top 20 protected 1st
Mavs in: dragic, wood, Boucher

Mavs drop kp for a more reliable and better all around rotation/ more future flexibility with some good contracts.
