If they sign Kyrie and Butler or Kyrie and Harris, then Russel is a FA?
Yes, they have to free themselves of his cap-hold to sign two 30%-FAs
I honestly would sign him to a max. I think his contract projects better than Kyries for the next 4 years and moving forward.
I even did some math and if you trade DSJr, Knox, 2020 Knicks 1st and the 2021 Mavs 1st for Beal, then we'd have a max slot open for Giannis/Towns/etc in 2021.
Allegedly Washington was willing to trade Beal for RJ+Frank+2020-NYK-FRP. I don't think DSJ+Knox cut it, but who knows. Either way it seems terribly cheap for Beal. It's hard to see that deal straight up - but maybe I'm really wrong here.
Anyway, sure. If you take on no salary beyond 2021 you have loads of space in 2021. But why are Giannis, Towns etc going to be interested in coming to a team that is for two years
Beal + the kids + (doesn't matter as they go to open the cap space)?
Well for one, you'd have to show that Beal/Barret/Mitch and DLo are better supporting cast than Middleton and Brogdon or Wiggins and ?
I think both of those are 100% true. Also Towns is a local kid and fits with Mitch like a glove. I can't think of a better fit tbh lol.
