    There is no way this bum can be on our team next year. We can clear 15 mil by waiving him.

    I thought we already used our stretch.

    I'd trade him in a trade for one of the Morris twins.

    No, we wouldnt save $15M.

    We could save $12M this year, but $6M of dead money the next two years after that would be very tough to handle.

    We need to try to trade down his or Meyers salary somehow.

    No, this would be the absolute worst thing to do.

    Exactly. It would be better to let his contract fall off the books next year than to waive and stretch him...

    No.

    If you trade one you trade Turner.

    We need Meyers more.

    Did I just say that shit......?

    We still have Andrew Nicholson's stretched salary on the cap for how many years? Horrible idea.

    Just because he is on the roster doesn’t mean h has to play. Just saying?

    ET seems like a good guy, but when he fought his own guy (Zach) for the rebound and Denver got it back for 2, I lost it. We had a chance to go up or tie it (I can't recall), instead they grow the lead. That was a STOP that was desperately needed.

    We need Enes, RH, Aminu, and/or Jake more than Meyers and trading down Meyers salary could free up the Full MLE.

    I dont think we could attach enough to get rid of him. I just think its time he no longer see’s the court. No one wants ET and our 1st its not high enough to be worth it...

    We got a week draft this year I would recommend trade Turner and the 1st round draft choice for a 2nd in this year draft. Late 1st probably won't be any better maybe a early 2nd.

    But no ones going to want Turner and our 1st wont be high enough that anyone would take it.

    You be surprised in some of this trade that go on in this league. If you get someone to bite they probably will buy him out. But to me it will be a interesting off season.

    What would happen if Turner agreed to a buy-out.

    Still on our cap?

    If we could stretch Turner so he's 8ft tall I think we might be on to something.
