Yeah, I'm definitely getting off the train if we're taking back Schroder and his second year. That's all kinds of bad. Can you imagine Clarkson, Sexton, and Schroder letting anyone else on the team shoot? Plus, I suspect that leaves both teams in the tax. I think the Cavs are a couple million over the tax line if they just cut JR.
If the Cavs got Schroeder in this deal I would expect Clarkson to be out the door as he'd be easier to move than having to append assets to Schroeder. Though looking at the trade more, Cleveland would likely be able to get a future protected 1st out of it as well. This trade though using the Capulator would put OKC under the tax by about 2.8 mil. The Cavs would be about 5.8 mil over but trading Clarkson could find some cap saving as well as looking to buyout Henson and/or Delly if not outright waive/stretching them. Plenty of opportunities to still make sure they get under the luxury line before end of the year.
Not sure I'm understanding why CLE would want to eat Schroeder at all , definitely not to get Adams while losing TT for nothing
and only benefitting from Knight being gone that could be dumped at the dl anyway along with TT.
If a trade like that happened CLE would have to be getting back draft assets and I highly doubt OKC is interested in paying to get rid of the 2 best players in this trade
The only reason I had us eating Schroeder was because jbk said that OKC would only do the trade to get the immediate cap savings from JR. Well doing a trade with JR meant we couldn't realize any cap savings, such as if it was JR + Henson, so by doing it this way it allowed us to realize ~8 mil of the cap savings we would've gotten from just waiving JR this year while still getting Adams. I also thought that a Schroeder expiring next year, especially with teams like GSW and the Nets being healthy finally, would be a more attractive trade chip than Knight's this year at the deadline especially since Leonard signed a 2+1 to match PGs 2+1 as well as LeBron's contract ending at that time so FA will be pretty lit and teams would potentially be willing to pay a higher price to be able to free up the ~15.5 mil in cap going into that summer.
