    - Acquire Jerami Grant.
    - Draft -- Sharpe, Walker.
    - Re-sign Ant for 4 yrs, 100 mil.
    - MLE -- GP2, trigger hard cap.
    - Re-sign Nurk for 4 yrs, 70 mil.
    - Re-sign Eubanks for the minimum.
    - Bledsoe? Waive I'm guessing.

    I like Sharpe.

    I guess, in theory, if we reneged on our deal with GP2 we wouldn't be.... but that never happens.

    Might be a little premature. There might be a surprise still to come

    Right now? I want to revisit this after summer league.

    C-

    I gave the draft a B-

    FA is a C-/D+ for me because signing Ant and then GP II doesn’t make sense and it brings us back to what was a problem in a log jammed back court last season.

    Nurkic contract isn’t bad. Reasonable for both sides. Hopefully he looks underpaid down the road; he’ll probably need to if we are to compete for a championship.

    There is a lot riding on Shaedon Sharpe. He might not know that, but there is.

    I give it a c right now because vi don't he done yet. I am looking to if he balance the roster a little better. If he does than I might bring up to a B.

    +/- in grading is weak. i never got the benefit of that in college to help my GPA. I got quite a few 89% Bs and 79% Cs.

    You've heard of "C's get degrees!"

    Well in the NBA, "C's get no rings!"

    that's why i put "incomplete" option there, but not sure what else you think we can do outside of maybe signing one of our SL guys to the minimum.

    because 85% is neither 80% or 90%

    but really the pole forces a 100% choice then drops to 80% choice.
    Lots of wiggle room for opinions to land in that 20%, no?

    Is the team markdly different from last year? Not imho. two small no defending guards running the show. The odds Sharpe will see meaningful minutes aint good. I would love it if he could be in the second rotation but he hasnt ever played against grown men yet.
