Feels like we gonna get a 2nd for Micic...I doubt he will play for us.


Give me a permission to swap firsts, top 8ish protected 2024.

If we are swapping I can see it being top 15 or top 20 protected instead . Top 8 is too high a value .

Yeah most casual fans are tripping on the value we could get from Micic. He has all leverage and it sucks for us.

He might be a decent piece in a potential trade for Markkanen if Presti wants to get him (not likely but who knows)

I don’t mind using him as sweetener to move up draft

Just spitballing idea here . If we really aren’t going to be signing RFA to offer sheet , what are the chances that we can trade for expirings in exchange for our TPE and immediately arrange a buyout for them ? Would they leave enough on the table ?

It would serves to tie up other team cap space in future in exchange for dead cap for a season ?

Say trade for an expiring of 10m who then leave 2-3m on the table . So we take the cap hit of 7m and ensure our TPEs doesn’t expire ? Basically paying for assets

Edit : just looked through a few team salary (those in luxury tax or close ) dont really see enough of such players that make it possible.

Also, dead cap hasn't been Presti's MO. He's been willing to take on contracts, but I think they've been somewhat selective in the contracts they take on - even in the past (Kurt Thomas, Delonte West, Wally Szcz.). But, maybe not. Hard to remember back then.

Dead cap haven’t been the MO cause we haven’t had roster crunch before . Next season potentially we only going to have only one guy making more than 10m before any trades.


If there’s something creative to be done with the cap just to get assets , Presti probably is the guy to do it .

I can’t recall which article I read but I remember some other FO rates Presti knowledge of the CBA quite well.

Well to talk about things trade possibilities according to RealGM trade & transactions, I want no part of Porzingis in OKC. His contract is ugly, he's overrated and don't like his attitude.

Rather gamble on a RFA player.

Agreed mostly on this point here. If he was simply overpaid I'd actually be fine bringing him in just to retain a big contract on the books (and it's just the next two years). The fact that he makes a big stink wherever he goes (and not to mention the allegations from a couple years back) makes me not want to touch him. It's such a bad sign when Luka has nothing but positive things to say about him and all Porzingis can do is make passive aggressive comments about "the ball not moving enough" when he doesn't get the touches he thinks he should.

I’m so ready to compete because I want SGA to get the respect he deserves.

I can’t think of a situation where SGA doesn’t pair well with a team/roster. His versatility is seemingly limitless
