    No. That just extends the pain. Just don't play him. We were willing to totally tank both Vonleh and Mo, so why not Turner?

    Yeah, people still would. We'd wanna upgrade his role.

    You think that is a lie? Every team that even let Olshey say the words Leonard or Turner without hanging up on him would have said, "well we will entertain it but it has to be a 1st round pick or Collins packaged with".

    In this situation? No. Any some other situations? Yes. Show me a GM that isn't and I will hand you a large sum of money for your time.

    Meaning no one was calling about all the crappy contracts Neil handed out in 2016.

    Agreed. Give him run. But I would much rather see if he is the next Derrick Favors or the next Joel Embid personally. I don't think those other two guys are good comps for him at all (not that my two are either, he is an unicorn).

    I actually like Collins.

    It's just this quote from Neil is so predictable. He knows they just had a shitty trade deadline. He knows people are angry. The only way he knows how to shift attention away from his crappy situation is by diverting our attention to something else, something that seems actually plausible.

    I also think it's funny how Woj and a couple other well respected journalists constantly tout the brilliance of Neil Olshey and his moves and yet we still always get the short end of the stick when it comes to actual deals/moves.

    This isn't correct. The repeater tax isn't really that bad but it doesn't have anything to do with the apron.

    So manipulative.

    Trying to make himself look better by acting like every team wants Collins and he's a genius for drafting him.

    Lmao.

    If every team wanted Collins we shoulda traded him for a stud SF and our 1st rounder for Randle and had a really nice starting 5

    You should re-read my post. I was contrasting tax penalties (tax and repeater) with apron restrictions (mle, bae, s&t). I know the difference between the two.

    Okay, I misunderstood what you were trying to say and then other people got confused thinking the tax line was the salary cap line and it turned into a big mess.

    This won't come into play because they won't sign someone to go into the tax but technically we could outbid most other teams for players that receive buyouts. Tyreke wouldn't probably want to sign beyond this season but it would be sweet if we signed someone like that to a multi-year deal if the Grizzlies release him.
