I love KCP but they should have offered him a 1 year balloon contract like before.
No Bogdan then.

or if they were going to go into 21 cap space then do it for someone better like bogdan
These are the type of posts that have no basis in reality.
“They should’ve done it for Bogdan”
As if the Lakers are in complete control over:
1. The amount Bogdan is asking for
2. The amount the Kings aren’t simply willing to match
3. The Kings asking price to facilitate a sign n trade
4. The amount KCP is asking for and if he’s even willing to go to Sacramento to make the trade work
Not only that but they literally can't give KCP a balloon payment. They are harcapped at the apron since they used the full-MLE. 13 mil is about the maximum amount of money they could reasonably give KCP while still leaving room for the vet mins to fill out the roster.
Besides, this is good value for KCP anyways. They can easily move off of this if/when they need to. DG got 15 mil a year just last year and was not so hard to trade.
