    Who would be the most over paid poster on S2 if we were the NBA? Most overhyped? Most under appreciated? Most valuable?

    :blink: Worst deal in NBA history?

    4 players have been given the supermax. Curry I understand. Harden - I can understand if I turn my head and squint just right. Westbrick - not so much. Wall? Even if healthy, what has he done to deserve a deal like that?:dunno:

    Worst deal among Curry / Harden / Westbrick. And absolutely terrible timing for them.

    They are stuck with his contract. This is where an amnesty clause would help a team in their position. Perhaps they will think about adding that to the next CBA.

    1. Toronto
    2. Bucks
    3. Rockets
    4. Warriors/Sixers/Blazers
    7. Nuggets
    8. Celtics/Thunder/Jazz
    11. Clippers/Lakers/Nets/Knicks
    15. Pacers/Spurs
    17. Mavs/Kings

    Then field

    But a competent GM can still put pieces around Dame and AD. Hell, Ujiri doesn't have a single lottery pick on his roster. Get lucky with an undrafted free agent like VanVleet or a 2nd round pick like Ginobili or Green.

    Make some good vet value minimum signings like say Vince Carter, Robin Lopez, whatever PG we can find like a Tim Frazier, Corey Joseph, Trey Burke, or Jeremy Lin. Convince Hood and Kanter to stay. Re-sign Aminu and Layman.

    It is possible to make a big trade and still bolster the roster around Dame and AD.

    You have to hit them stats hard.
    better start with the like to message ratio.
    We got some pretty outstanding posters that get very little respect.
    Then of course we got our Russel Westbrooks.
    There is a couple sitting with ET numbers.

    Random thought. If we are able to retain Hood...
    the Harkless/Aminu tandem starts-no-more. With a full training camp, I think Rodney starts.

    Dame/CJ/Hood/Collins/Nurk (Biebs*)
    Ant/ET**/Harkless/Aminu***

    I actually am pretty excited by this.

    *Until Nurk returns
    **Cringe
    ***Yes, I think Aminu returns, and as a bench player, I think that's a good thing.
