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.
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.
There was always room for Shai's contract. I wonder if Kemba turned down the player option he had for next year. If that's all he had to do to get where he wanted to be I think that make sense for the Thunder. Plus, you don't have to worry about rehabbing his value. You can just develop this team around Shai while you try to find the Center of the future.
