But now we have 5 years of Terry at a large contract plus 3 more of Gordon at an even larger one with Miles contract needing to be dealt with and LaMelo getting his bag before Terry and whatever we give Miles ends. We are locking ourselves into this roster now, which isn’t bad but they’re making some bets here that I hope work out well.
You know we can trade players right? We aren't locking ourselves into this roster for the next 3 to 5 years. Kupchak hasn't handed out any Batum level disasters yet that can't be traded.
You know that trades require an agreement between at least 2 teams right?
It's easy to say "we can just trade him later" but the same was said when Batum was signed and I bet the FO would have loved to have traded him out instead of stretching him.
It's not always as easy as just saying a player can be traded whenever and however you want to trade them.
