Knicks, Cavaliers, Mavericks Interested In Signing Talen Horton-Tucker 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 12, 2021 3:41 pm

Talen Horton-Tucker is expected to receive interest from "multiple teams" in free agency with the New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks specifically mentioned.


The Lakers can give Horton-Tucker a contract starting around $10.5 million while rival teams will be limited by the mid-level exception starting at approximately $9 million. A quirk in the cap, however, can allow for a third-year balloon payment worth as much as the maximum salary with a raise in the fourth. A rival team could pay Horton-Tucker $9 million in the first year, $10 million in the second year then jump to more than $32 million in the third year and $32 million in the fourth. The Lakers could match the deal.


“The way the rules are, I don’t see the Lakers letting him go,” one general manager told Heavy.com. “But teams can make this a more difficult decision for the Lakers than they’d like. Teams that have a lot of cap space and are looking to gamble on a young guy, why not put your money into him? The upside is obvious.”

Wait are we talking about after the season during game 10?

I mean I'd get it if he was established and all, but people need to chill here. Let's see how the season and playoffs play out before guessing what his market value is. He has 16 games total in his entire career and was a mid second round pick.

The leak is just Rich Paul marketing his client, positioning him for a bigger contract. Same thing with Gary Trent Jr. turning down $15M per from Portland. And yes, another Rich Paul client.

I think he's saying that it's not true, and Paul is just leaking out information to raise the value of his clients. Not sure if it's true or not, but thats how I interpreted it.
Go Knicks!

You sorta get the feeling they're talking about Jrue Holiday or someone like that, but this is who? Let them do their poison pill thing or whatever :lol: .

THT is not going to be available . LAL would be dumb to let him walk
There are no valid legal arguments that people have any right to not wear masks in public at this point. Being asymptomatic or unaware if you are positive, does not make you exempt from any obligations to ensure society is free from your germs.
