If Aminu does get waived by the Bulls...
So if Norm gets 21M a year and Gary gets 15M a year....who won the trade?
Now that the dust has settled with options, the FA list is massive. I was thinking this might be impossible to find value in FA, but like 20% of the league is without a contract/team right now and some of these mid-tier guys are going to get squeezed. It's going to be a repeat of last year when the 2016 contract guys took massive pay cuts after their deals ended.
Here's what I figure might happen:
- Powell: 3 yrs, 65 mil, 4th yr team option. Unfortunately for us, I don't anticipate a discount with him.
- Olynyk: TPMLE, 2 yrs, second year player option. Never thought this was feasible, but there's too many guys available.
- Exum: Minimum 1 yr, second year player option.
I'll pass on Powell at over 31 mil per yr (your number), a hard pass, way too much, unless the 65 mil would include the 4th yr option
I think it’s roughly 21 a year, with a 4th year option. We can start the contract at about 19M and give him the standard 8% raises each year:
65mil over 3 years starts at 20M, not 31M
OK, I am good with that
think you need some coffee.
That is always a good idea. These numbers are always easy to mix up.
If we’re shooting for upside I’m all in on Otto Porter Jr. His reps are reportedly looking for the full MLE and it doesn’t look to be out there. He may have to take the tax MLE.
The people getting PAID.
· The Blazers have shown no inkling they intend to move on from Damian Lillard or C.J. McCollum, and have a slew of their own free agents—Norman Powell, most notably, plus guaranteeing the $12 million for the final year of Jusuf Nurkic’s contract, which Portland is expected to do—to deal with. Ex-Blazer Nicolas Batum is on the Blazers radar, per a source, with Portland projecting to be limited with what it can spend by its $5.3 million mid-level exception.
Literally fuck me
at least we are interested in Nic
It would be nice to sign a player who isn't likely to miss most of the season with injury.
Yay! But I thought he was going to Golden State?
why? I'd take the Nico that played in the playoffs last season for 5 mil without any issue.
How about signing someone who didn’t miss most of the season but wasn’t good enough to play half if it (including playoffs)?
