I wasn't thinking of that kind of thing.
Rather, the quasi-BYC issue (technically it's not called BYC any more) is that a team can't take as much money in as the other team needs to send out. A third team who takes salary into cap room could solve that problem.
none of it will work as unless we renounce all our players including Fournier, we will be over the apron enough that we can't accept a sign and trade. And again, unless he takes his QO and ok's the trade to us knowing he can't get a raise with us the next season.... (0 chance) he can't come here.
Pretty much would have to trade Kemba to the Knicks first for minimal salary return and use the TPE to absorb Lonzo in an S&T. Even then we'd be hard-capped again. So, yeah, super likely...
so basically 0 chance for any free agents on first big contract from rookie scale deal into a sign and trade for more than the rookie scale. We've kind of said that all year. WE can use the rest of the TPE for a player that fits in it as long as it's not a sign and trade.
