    The optics of adding a great draft pick without giving up anyone on the roster to do so? I think Dame is smart enough to know that is a good deal.

    If there were trying to get James and need to clear cap space and wing space, he would seem the likely asset.

    I guess they could try

    Fultz
    Simmons (SG)
    Covington
    James
    Embiid

    It's just that I really want Covington.

    Why not just dump Bayless like I said and bring Fultz or Covington off the bench?

    They showed it on ESPN the other day. To get all 3 (LeBron, Kawhi, and PG) they basically have to trade away every single player, let the free agents walk including Randle, and stretch Deng's contract. Doing so leaves them $400,000 short to one of them for a max contract (which would probably be fine). They can't add anymore salary to the equation if that is the goal.

    I wonder what Cleveland would give us to take Jordan Clarkson off their hands.
    I watched him in LA and he had some great games. I know he is over paid, but I wonder if he would be worth the TPE if all else fails?

    I wonder how well a LeBron, Kawhi and PG team would look that had absolutely no bench. And if one or more of them gets injured?

    Obviously, an immediate second trade that got us a quality, experienced player would provide instant gratification, but I also think Neil could sell Dame on it by saying, we couldn't get exactly what we wanted with the TPE, which expires in three weeks, but this pick can be used in a future trade, perhaps at the trade deadline, that gets us the help we need.

    There is a report that several free agents would sign there for the minimum if LeBron goes there so they'd probably somehow still field a pretty good bench around them. They'd also have the room exception. It would definitely be interesting.

    Why? too much? You don't like his game? Duplication of what we have? not what we need?
    I can see all of those points, but I am talking about as a last resort....if we get nothing else for the TPE and it is expiring in a few hours. The guy can score off the bench.....

    He has a selfish game that wouldn’t mesh well with CJ in that second unit.

    Well I admit I like the prospects of having someone like Balwin out there playing next to CJ. But he would be a nice insurance policy if CJ got hurt. But I guess that would take away from the development of Simons. However if we traded Simons in a package deal in the next two weeks, then I would revisit that option.

    I’m more sure than ever that the Crabbe TPE will expire

    It has always been at least 90% chance that it was going to expire without being used.

    The TPE is not all that valuable
