And that wouldn't be a "bad" year either
Because I'm done with you. I'd ignore you if I could.
There's a third option. Let him become a FA, offer him more than Dallas can (because Portland can) and if he walks he walks. Use the cap space for someone else. What is Dallas going to give you that you want to pay MAX kind of money for?
A fourth option is you do a S&T if it makes sense - this is the only way LMA can get a 5 year max deal and leave.
It's too hard to predict right now because we have no idea what roster we will have going into training camp. I would be surprised if we did much worse, but you never know. Regardless, the west could be even more powerful if Melo and/or LeBron come to the Western Conference.
Dirk made $23m last year at age 35. Huh?
Technically he would be giving up something like 5-8 million by accepting the extension if he remains a max level talent and plays 6 more years. Then again if he suffers a significant injury he is risking 55 million by not signing the extension. (Knock on wood unless he leaves as a FA).
So let me get this straight, you attempted to make some kind of personal attack and then when I called you on it, you tried to act like it didn't happen? Now you're "done with me?"
As RR7 pointed out yesterday, only 4 year contracts can be used in a S&T under the new CBA.
As always, depends on injuries
Teams like the Grizzles and Mavericks may have been the 7th and 8th seed, but they played better ball than the Blazers the 2nd half of the season.
Watch GS get Love
Houston get Melo
What exactly are the Blazer going to do to keep up? Develop the bench? ...........
Aldridge will sit there and see all the teams in the west making moves and wonder what the Blazers will do
Yes, I'm done with you. This 5 on 1 stuff gets tiresome, yet you're the only mod that does it. Are your feelers hurt?
Can't do 5yr S&T's anymore (Coon FAQ #90).
Who are the PF FA's around in 2015? One of the reasons that LMA is "poachable" is that he's really the only one, and there could be openings in both DAL and SAS with max dollars
How about you clarify what you meant about a break up?
Apparently trade their own All-NBA big this summer or at the deadline for whatever future picks and garbage they get offered. Then use that cap space to sign a big-time All-Star FA, since everybody knows that big-time All-Star FAs are clamoring to play in Portland. Good plan.
OK, so there's no point to doing a S&T anymore.
Must have hit a sore spot. Sorry. A dickish move by me.
It wasn't his "max". He took a reset in 2010-11 to less than the max. Sure, 22M is no chump change, but it was less than the max. And 20M at 34 is about 6M less than LMA's contract will be at 34 if you gave him a 5yr max.
There is if the team you're trading with doesn't have cap space.
If Olshey can't build a better team that could be the end result
A year can change everything. If the Blazers don't make the moves to take the next step, why would Aldridge stay?
5 years 108 million based on latest numbers I have seen vs 4 years 81 million, unless LA is no longer a max level player at 34 he would make more money playing in Dallas and not giving the man 9.5% of his income.
Why, you know what he meant. It's not that hard to figure out. He got pissed and posted something he shouldn't have. It would be nice if he would just delete it but that's not going to happen. Why not just let it go. You know you're secure in your personal life. Relax. Let it go.
