Throw in some of our picks and go for Siakam. Hahaha yeah right.
I would be doing everything I could to trade him right now. His inconsistency is a nonstarter, his propensity for injuries is another nonstarter and what people in here are saying about what he'll probably get paid is accurate and that's the biggest reason I would trade him. We have to pay around 15M a year for a guy who has a bad attitude off and on, refuses to play offense in a way that makes sense and has a long injury history... no thanks.
4 yrs 50 mil my max and yr 4 team option
If I was the GM the deal i would offer Nurk is :
2yr 30 Million plus 1 yr team option for 15 to 17m
This is the max i would offer him atm plain and simple
Toronto is supposedly high on Nurk, no pun intended, so Boucher is an OK starting point but it would have to be Boucher who we would probably let walk, Achiuwa who we would keep and hopefully a fucking first round pick but the way things have been going it will be a future second. We clear 9M more in cap space, we get another cheap young prospect and we get a draft asset.
I just think Nurk is such an old school C besides his great passing which he overestimates and gets him into trouble, that it makes no sense paying him 15M a season when you can probably get a guy that does a lot of the same things for less money or draft a guy like Orlando Robinson who has been playing college ball at a high level for three years, is big and tough in the post, blocks shots and hits threes.
I tend to agree, although:
Jonas Valančiūnas $14,000,000 $14,700,000
Christian Wood $13,666,667 $14,317,459
Dwight Powell $11,000,000 $11,814,815
Richaun Holmes $10,384,500 $11,215,260 $12,046,020
Montrezl Harrell $9,720,900
Tristan Thompson $9,720,900
Nerlens Noel $8,800,000 $9,240,000
Jakob Poeltl $8,750,000 $9,398,148
Maxi Kleber $8,750,000 $9,000,000
Mason Plumlee $8,137,500 $8,525,000
DeAndre Jordan $10,517,224 $7,827,907
Ivica Zubac $7,518,518 $7,518,518
Zach Collins $6,984,127 $7,333,333
Kevon Looney $5,178,572
JaVale McGee $5,000,000
Robin Lopez $5,000,000
Bobby Portis $4,347,600 $4,564,980
Gorgui Dieng $4,000,000
Boban Marjanović $3,500,000 $3,500,000
Dewayne Dedmon $2,866,667 $2,866,667
Dwight Howard $2,641,691
LaMarcus Aldridge $2,641,691
Enes Freedom $2,641,691
Ed Davis $2,641,691
Hassan Whiteside $2,401,537
Andre Drummond $2,401,537
Frank Kaminsky $2,089,448
Nemanja Bjelica $2,089,448
obviously, Nurk is better than most of those, although not as durable. But is he really worth 3 times as much as Robin Lopez and 5 times as much as Enes or Drummond?
on the free market, would Nurkic really get much more than the MLE? Toronto won't have more than an MLE. If Detroit offers him 20M should the Blazer try and beat that
That is where I'm at exactly.
If Boucher was part of it and he wanted to play here for a couple years and it was reasonable Id sign him. He is a decent down low defender.
Yeah, that is a good list. Thanks.
I was looking at this year's list of unrestricted center free agents and I was thinking because it was limited that it would drive his stock up.
you also have to look at scheduled guaranteed payrolls vs a projected 121M salary cap:
* Toronto, who is rumored to like Nurkic, only has 9 players signed leaving them less than 9M in space. That doesn't count the cap-hold for Boucher, their 1st round pick, or roster charge(s)
* Kings just traded for Sabonis - NO
* Minnesota has KAT - NO
* OKC is a threat, I guess; they don't really have a solid option at C - Maybe
* Chicago has Vucevic' - NO
* Memphis has Steven Adams - NO
* Indiana has reportedly chosen Myles Turner over Sabonis - Likely NO
* Spurs have Poeltl and Zach - Likely NO
* Detroit has almost nobody at C and are supposedly interested - biggest threat
* Orlando has Wendall Carter and Bamba (UFA) - Likely NO
really, I only see Detroit as the threat here and I think it would be a terrible idea for Portland to get into a bidding war with a team that could have 25M in cap-space
I'd much rather have Powell than Nurkic.
After Dame and CJ's fat contracts and calling them + Nurk big3, I imagine he isn't thinking 12.
Welp. No trade so we must sign him to a friendly contract. Cant let him walk for nothing.
I think he'd be a great fit for how Chauncey wants to play. Great character guy too. Maybe if the pairing of him and Sabas doesn't work out we could deal with the Kings this offseason.
When he played last night I figured he wasnt going to be traded.
you dont give up on little or simons for fucking powell lol
I'm no cap expert, but I'd say $200 trillion/year for 199 years is too much.
i see max contract in his future
Is “max contract” anything like Max Headroom?
Your post is stupid as $hit.
