The more he give up. The more likely we can use the TPEs for asset .

I see.. did not know that. I assume it was a substantial amount for the Thunder to agree to it.

I’m hopeful it’s between the 5m-10m per year range . Doubt it’s anything more than that.

Unless he's coming here, we may have just screwed Dennis from his last hope of not becoming Nerlens 2.0.

And if we are interested in using the adams TPE , I think dragic might not have any takers . And he’s an expiring contract .

Dragic value isn't that low. We won't get a lot for him...

I don’t think there’s a lot of contenders or semi contenders with first still to move

just don't think Toronto gonna dump Dragic for a first. I just don't get the reason.

If the idea was to S & T Lowry to get Achiuwa and dump a FRP, that's pretty bad.

Dragic could have some "ok" value at the deadline

Can't believe we pay Walker 73 Mio as buyout. There must be a deal for this year 36 mio contract.

Griffin gave back 13 millions and it was already considered as "big". Curious to see the numbers

It’s more likely they dump precious or a lower valued prospect on their roster though with second rounder or two max.

Don’t see him as needing first to be moved.

Is Gs really keeping Wiggins? They have 180 millions in taxes...

I would give K.Williams a better and longer contract (about 5 Mio per year) and keep him for several years on our roster.

Can a buyout be on the books in one year, or must it be spread over several years?

in one year it's gonna be difficult :)

Most likely over the two years of his contract but they can extend it.

I think it's better to keep it in 2 years since we won't need cap space.

I’m surprised about Walker. Very not-Presti move.

There’s a zero percent chance Kemba picked up is PO. My guess is he declined it and then gave back the $8m that he’s getting from NYK.

But if we have only to pay this contract year 36 Mio in buyout, that could be a solution to the salary cap, and next season, when Shai's new contract became active we have room for it.

He’s definitely getting a big part of next year money.

Kemba's buy out means "my dream" of Simmons in OKC is over :(
