    Showing urgency would put Olshey in a bad bargaining position. Unfortunately Olshey and Morey are both playing the same game. This could take a while.

    So Bulls go Ball, Lavine, Derozan, Williams, Vucevic. Caruso on the bench. That's a fun team.

    Lauri has to be on the move. He seems like a guy who would be a Neil favorite.

    Also, that's a HUGE deal for Derozan. ~28 a year? Yikes. And had to give up a 1st to do it as well.

    Glad DeRozen didn't go to either LA team for a discount.

    Expensive roster.

    Ball- 20 mil
    Lavine - 20 mil but crying about being underpaid in public.
    DeRozan - 28 mil
    Williams - 10 mil rookie
    Vucevic - 25 mil

    No way they retain Markkanen.

    This off season is getting worse by the minute.
    All these teams being creative.
    We signed Cody zeller and Ben mcelmore

    this really can’t look good from dames perspective

    OKC should sign him outright.

    I have no fucking clue why the Spurs decided to take back Thad Young instead of Markkanen.

    Motherfucker I knew this was gonna happen.

    The wording sounds like a minimum deal though. Which is fine. Anything more and *facepalm*

    Man doesn’t this offseason have felt like a huge step backward for us. We still don’t have a back up point guard. We only gotten more shooters, but they themselves can’t do much else. None of the players are even known to be good defenders. There is Greg brown we drafted but he’s years away. There better be a CJ trade going on

    The only chance was to deal cj, ant, etc. Neil won't do it. Portland is playing it back 100%. Maybe sub nas for djj but it's the same team.

    I'm starting to think Zeller is getting the 5M.

    Remaining 900k goes to Greg Brown so we can sign him to a 3 or 4 year deal instead of a 2 year deal.

    13 players on the roster. One more minimum spot.

    This shit is depressing.
