    1. Have you checked those teams out recently? They're not as bad as you remember.
    2. All three are primed for free agency, so Jimmy is assuming he can do the Heatles thing with one of the other big name summer FAs.

    So you're talking about trades that save you $2M, and yuh consider that a "salary dump"? Lmao. There's no way to shed $30M by years end.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the team only need to shed $7-8 million to get under the tax line?

    Why do you have to be such a jerk in the waay you respond to everything?

    Shedding long term salary? That'd be easier to do on the off-season.

    Pot calling the kettle black....

    Gronk is saying that Butler is expiring. Trading CJ for Butler reduces the salay comitment for the 19-20 season by almost $30M (assuming the new owner lets him walk)

    Nah, not really.

    If he meant long-term salary, he should've specified. Simple. Instead he's being snarky.

    To be fair, about 50% of this board responds to others in a jerky/snarky way lol

    Fallacy.

    Whoever trades for Butler BETTER be offering a 5 Year Max deal.

    We can’t give them anything they need.

    I’m not sure Toronto actually need anything either. They are properly stacked and very deep. They could use improvement at shooting guard and maybe center but we can’t give them that.
