He is probably in his prime the next 2-4 years. Big men peak earlier and he relies on his athleticism. The time is now or never IMO with Gobert. And he might be gone in a year from now....which sucks to think. But I believe his contract is up at the end of this year.
If they blow it up in 1-2 years they can have a ton of capspace before signing Donovan to his max.
The problem is that as long as they have DM and Gobert they will never blow it up. They will ride these two players for as long as they can into another 5 years of playoff purgatory with no shot at contention. And worse, with DM's max and Gobert's supermax they won't have the cap space to make the team better.
If they can’t at least make it to the WCFs and have a competitive series they should not sign Rudy to a Supermax. They should trade him and get assets to build around Donovan. That’s why I think it’s this year or sorta bust. Maybe sign Rudy to a contract and then trade him.
Sorry which level of skills and IQ you assign to DM to be a center of buildin a contender? Evidently Kobe or A. Davis or Garnett level is not enough for small market team... He is on par with Curry, Dunkan or Greek level, right?
