    If we lose Kanter how do guys feel about Cousins on a 1 year prove you’re healthy deal? Him and Nurk have the same agent right?

    He'll get paid more than we can offer.

    Really? Coming off b2b injury seasons? There’s a lot of FA depth at C. Maybe ur right but I’d think he’s a pretty big risk at this point.

    Theres so many FA's this year I think it's kind of hard to tell what the market for some of these guys will be.

    A $12M deal beats ours. That's not much.

    I understand. I just don't really have any gauge at all on what most of these guys are going to get, what teams are even interested in some of the guys. Like Atlanta, I can't imagine they'd be interested in Cousins, but maybe it's possible.

    I'm actually kind of looking forward to FA even though the Blazers won't be much of a player in it, but it should be fun.

    Fuck it, bring Ed or Noah back then, I’d love both. Hey salary cap nerds(I mean that nicely) is this more or less likely than being able to sign Kanter and Hood...

    Nurk(Injury)/Ed/Nards/Skal
    Collins/Noah
    Hood/Harkless/Layman
    CJ/Simmons/Trent
    Dame/ET/Rookie

    Basically would it be easier to sign Noah/Ed/Hood or Kanter/Hood?

    In this scenario Curry and Chief walk.

    My main offseason goal. No more ET! Even if they lose Kanter / Hood / Curry and chief and can only replace them with Gleaguers, it would be worth it if ET is being paid by a different team next season.

    I think to trade him before the season started we would have to attach 2 1s to him. I just don’t think anyone will take him until the deadline possibly. He’s a big expiring.

    I'm assuming that we'd clear up the Full MLE if we were going after Cousins.

    Brooklyn took on similar money for one pick last summer.

    We have $5.3 million or minimum contracts to offer Kanter and any other players from other teams. So if you are trying to get both Vonleh and Ed you'd basically be saying that one would either be willing to sign for the minimum or both for a combination of $5.3 million. With how both played this year, it seems unlikely to sign both.

    I’d like Noah then, he only made 1.6 this season so even with a raise seems more attainable than Ed who I believe was around 4.5 mil. Seems like a nice backup to Zach if Chief leaves.

    What Vonleh made this year is irrelevant. A 23 year old PF with his athleticism and is getting better is probably gonna at least get the Tax-MLE somewhere.

    I wonder what Miami's going to do with Whiteside. Reports are that he's out of their starting line-up, and that they want to preserve 2020 cap space. I wonder if a Turner+assets for Whiteside deal might make sense for both sides.

    Assuming Kanter's going to cost too much to retain, and Nurk won't be back full-strength until 2020, you don't think he'd be a decent and sensible stopgap?

    Or do you just think Miami would demand much too much in trade for him to be reasonably acquirable?
