    I tend to agree. I don't think any team will be willing to invest big cap-space on him. More likely all or part of an MLE which is a little under 10M

    here's a list of bigs and their salaries this year:

    Daniel Theis $8,372,093
    Mason Plumlee $8,137,500
    DeAndre Jordan $7,827,907
    Mo Bamba $7,568,742
    Ivica Zubac $7,518,518
    Juancho Hernangómez $7,012,440
    Chris Boucher $7,009,615
    Kevon Looney $5,178,572
    JaVale McGee $5,000,000
    Robin Lopez $5,000,000
    Taj Gibson $4,910,000
    Bobby Portis $4,347,600
    Willie Cauley-Stein $4,200,000
    Gorgui Dieng $4,000,000
    Alex Len $3,731,707
    Boban Marjanović $3,500,000
    Dewayne Dedmon $5,256,308
    Dwight Howard $2,641,691
    LaMarcus Aldridge $2,641,691
    Ed Davis $2,641,691
    Hassan Whiteside $2,401,537
    Andre Drummond $2,401,537
    Cody Zeller $2,389,641
    Frank Kaminsky $2,089,448
    Nemanja Bjelica $2,089,448

    now, Nurkic is better than just about all of those guys, but he's not so much better to justify 3-5 times the salary. A lot of teams go with cheap option at C so they can spend cap elsewhere

    I had said this a while ago but with Portland adding a little extra and Sabonis, instead of Turner going to Toronto. Same philosophy. This trade would be sexy.

    That was Pincus' exact same narrative about CJ when he said we'd have to add assets to move him.

    Pincus is a hack.

    Siakam has averaged 24.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 6.6 assists in his last 10 games and 16 steals and 6 block in that stretch. Would take at least a first rounder from both Indiana and Portland I think.

    OK, I really want Siakam and people are saying we need to get rid of two of Anf, CJ and Powell. CJ to Indiana, Anf, Turner and Warren to Toronto, Siakam to Portland. No draft picks,

    Could tinker with that a little and add McConnel from Indiana to us and Smith to them. Or would be better financially and more palatable for Indiana if we sent Covington to them and got back McConnel

    They MIGHT get that return for Sabonis, not Turner. And even that is a bit steep. If their asking price is leaking to the media, good luck actually getting it.

    Before Reddish was traded to the Knicks for essentially peanuts, multiple sources were reporting the asking price from ATL was a lottery pick or nothing short of Ben Simmons.

    Houston leaked that the asking price for Eric Gordon is a first.

    All this is just canvasing the league for offers, and and attempts to increase value via the media. These efforts are rarely fruitful in drumming up the kind of return these teams expect.

    I bet INdy is looking at the return Orlando got for Vuc, and just going slightly under with Turner. Vuc got 2 picks and a good young player in Carter. All it takes is one desperate and stupid team...

    Apparently inflation isn't just food, gas, etc. It's also these ridiculous fucking asks from these moron GMs.

    Fischer has been saying for a month now that the return for Vuc is what they seek for sabonis

    Or if Covington gives assurance he will re-sign with Portland, I trade Nance instead of him.
    Lillard/ McConnell
    Powell/ MacNamara (probably try to sign a free agent here)
    Little/Roco
    Siakam/Roco
    Nurk/?/Watford

    RoCo for Bagley/FRP

    That (protected) FRP for Bamba

    That is Orlando’s asking price.
