    Hopefully some of this is incentive based.

    Told y'all, that 80 mil number thrown around yesterday was not realistic.

    The Nurk number will be 70+ too.

    I'm fine with this. This was market rate considering his RFA status.

    100 mill is not realistic. That's overpay.

    Too much. We are right back to where we were with Dame/CJ. Expensive, short, non-defensive guards making the most amount of money on the team.
    And he won't be playing in the role where he had a hot stretch. When will they learn. Cronin pulls that straight out of the Olshey playbook.

    Both.

    It takes away our MLE and it's overpay.

    Also, this league is getting ridiculous.

    Bidding against ourselves.

    A Portland tradition.

    A starting salary of ~22 mil puts him around 55-60th in the league. He'll perform to that level next season

    but we weren't bidding against ourselves. you don't think Detroit, OKC, or San Antonio would have offered this?

    We are all aware of the difference in age and money. The point still stands.

    A lot of quick reactions to this I'm seeing around the league think this is a pretty good deal.
