You are a GM with cap space next year. Which RFA do you offer a max contract to first?

Buddy Hield or Jaylon Brown?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:24:41
none, i don't think they're worth a max contract.
J Brown should have signed that 80M contract.
Maybe Cleveland could give him that big contract, but i think it's to much.

Hield is a good fit in sacramento, he could be an all star in the east. So they could offer close to the max for him. For sure if they make the playoffs next year. But i can't see another team give him that max contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:56:07
Gasupo, if Brown should gave signed his $80 deal, then Hield should have signed his $90mil offer?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:58:06
Seems like it's Hield by a mile.

Brown feels like his ceiling is coming down to someone like Covington. Maybe Tobias Harris. Likely a 4th best player on an elite team.

Hield could jump up to a McCollum/ Murray/ Kemba/ Klay tier. A legit second option.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 20:25:02
Kind of feel like Hield is on par with Murray (and Mitchell) . A step below MCollum and Klay as SGs in the WC.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Oct 2019 07:40:45
Not sure Hield should have signed that 90M dollar contract. I would have liked that, it would give sacramento flexibility, but it's all about the money.

J Brown isn't worth that 80M contract, so i would let him go if he wants more. I would offer a max contract to keep Hield in sacramento. But i don't think another team would offer a max contract, so i think they can come to an agreemenet between 90M and a max conntract.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 09:52:42
The "problem" with maxing Hield is that in the future with Bogi, Fox and Bagley getting max deals as well, that takes up 100% of the Kings salary cap. So how to you keep adding to that core? Its the OKC dilemna of paying Harden, Durant, Westbrook and Ibaka all over again.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 14:54:16
If Brown want to take only a MAX which team would offer for him and would have the money for? Boston probably wouldn`t. He is a good, Young 3&D guy, but cannot create his shot or make plays.

Maybe Memphis, NY or OKC? Dallas! Brown may be a great fit beside MagicLuca and KPorzee in Addition to Wright!

Maybe Mavs can make an opportunistics signing? Since Detroit wants to free up a roster spot there could be a three team trade on the horizont:

Boston
- K.Thomas and a 1st by Mavs or Justin Jackson and a 2nd by Mavs
Dallas:
- Brown
Detroit:
- 2nd picks by Mavs

Agree0 Disagree2

18 Oct 2019 09:54:27
Is Dallas prepared to pay Brown a Max offer? Trading a first only makes sense if you plan on resigning him.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 07:36:18
I like Bradley green James Davis McGee as starting 5 for Lakers. Hope James could shoot 5/6 or like 11/13 from ft every real game

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Oct 2019 09:46:39
It's a guards league now. so i wonder what's the trade value for a talented center that has good rebound/ block and/or scoring numbers without a consistent 3- pointer like...

Vucevic
Bamba
Drummond
Sabonis
M Turner
Adams
Gobert

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 12:02:14
you won't be saying its guards league when the sixers hoist the LarryO in june.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Oct 2019 12:50:19
@Smunro
Horford/ Harris and Embiid can all spread the floor and shoot 3-pointers.
And the sixers can only win if Simmons starts to shoot them too.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 13:52:03
A good young talent, a 2020 or 2021 lottery protected 1st and expiring deals. Pretty much what the Kings got for Cousins a few years ago.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 16:10:21
What Fredman said, except Gobert is worth more than the rest. He's on another level than those guys.

If you can't run an offense through a center, you have to be an entire defense unto yourself. That's Gobert. And that's why Drummond, Adams, and Deandre Jordan have always been slightly disappointing.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Oct 2019 23:06:40
Bmiller, you can run your regular season defense around Gobert, but there are ways to negate him in the post season. I kind of wonder how Drummond would fair on a better team. Just letting him wreck the offensive boards could be interesting in the playoffs. I’ve seen Tristan Thompson change games that way and Drummond has the ability to do that times 10.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 20:45:25
We'll see if anyone can negate Gobert with the team around him. That team is GREAT defensively. And they should be pretty darn good on offense too.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 17:35:35
Mavs need a rebounding center with some defensive skills...What players would fit Mavs lineup and what would be needed to get them? As rumor is that Drummond is expected to be available, I was trying to create trades for him...But let's see what everyone thinks..

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 19:30:24
I’m not sure that Dallas has enough to go out and get him. They don’t have a ton of assets outside of Doncic and KP.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 19:45:02
Adams makes sense. So does Drummond if/ when Detroit blows it up. Maybe Vucevic?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 21:05:05
I see several possible acquisitions, but what so the MAVS have to to give up to acquire these players.?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 23:51:43
Adams would be the cheapest and most realistic.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Oct 2019 01:49:47
May want to see what Memphis wants for Valancinous. I know they just resigned him, but does he fit their youth movement with JJJ and Clarke?

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Oct 2019 16:40:56
Valanciusnas+KAnderson (3yrs$29MilOwed) for HardawayJR+CLee (expiring) +2026FirstRoundPick+2020SecondRoundPick (Utah) .

Memphis is lite on SGs so Hardaway may work there. Dallas takes on Anderson's remaining salary.

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Oct 2019 13:16:00
It didn't take too long before Lebron exposed himself of his selfishness. Greedy mofo. I wish nothing but bad fortune him financially. His pov China is an embarrassment to the nba and this country.

Agree0 Disagree3

15 Oct 2019 19:13:24
Yeah, it’s pretty disappointing from a guy who wants to present himself the way he does on other social issues.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2019 01:40:59
So with the salary cap lowering the salary and luxury cap projection by around $15 mil (an actual decline of around $9 mil from this year) because of China, a majority of teams are already looking to be over the luxury tax for next year. Free cap space is going to be at a premium and require more draft picks to secure. Prepare for a ton of salary dump deals at the draft and next offseason.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2019 10:56:04
I haven’t heard anything official yet. I thought they were just pulling Rockets games. That said, it wouldn’t be a bad thing for the Cavs.

Agree1 Disagree3

10 Oct 2019 10:56:45
Competitively that is. I’m sure Gilbert would like his money.

Agree0 Disagree2

10 Oct 2019 14:37:54
Its not official, but reports say some GMs are already game-planning for if it becomes official. Only 8 teams will be below the salary cap with only Atlanta and Memphis having significant amounts of cap space.

Additionally, players on deals set to salary cap (max deal, rookies and league minimum deals) will have future salaries reduced as well.

So maybe Chris Paul and John Wall will become affordable. lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Oct 2019 16:22:00
Those salaries are set by the cap of the year they sign them. Their salary isn't dictated by the cap of the year they get paid. The only times I've seen that happen was when a player signed a max deal mid season. At that time, the "max" isn't established, so there's not a set amount until July, when the cap is set for the following year.

That's why some guys were severely underpaid for a few years. They signed before the cap boom.

In the end, this will blow over and nothing that extreme will happen.

Agree0 Disagree2

10 Oct 2019 17:51:57
Perhaps. Just not sure how most players will react to losing 10% of what their projected salary will be next year. So for Lebron that would be $3.9 mil for next year alone. For the length of his contract, that could $8 mil. Now aggreagate that for every player in the league and its probably somewhere near in the $100+ mil category.

So my next curiousity question is can individual players or the player's union file a suit against Morey for the projected salary loss.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 15:32:37
But those contracts are set. No one is losing money from their existing contract. That's what I was saying. Future contracts might go down, but it's hard to sue based on future cap and future contracts. It's too slippery of a slope, since no one can guarantee what the cap would be next year anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 16:42:24
Salaries are set. My bad. The website I was reading from said max salary was 35% of each years salary cap when its 35% of the initial year +8% raises each following year. As for lost salary or revenue, its not that slippery of a slope as the lost salary is directly tied to the lost revenue which is directly tied to Morey's comment. Now the individual salaries loss will be hard to compute. But the aggregate amount if the players union surs on behalf of the playets will not be. So the owners and players union could probably go after Morey (sort of like the NBA going after Sterling for his comments) .

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 18:41:05
But Sterling didn’t get sued for money, he got stripped of his ownership. Suing for money is a whole different animal. If Morey could be sued for that, could you sue a guy that retires early because it negatively affects the league? Or sue a star that backs the wrong presidential candidate? Or a player/ team that kneels during the anthem or doesn’t come out? Sue a gay player because that negatively affects advertisement?

Slippery slope.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Oct 2019 20:13:16
I don't think you can show a DIRECT relationship between a a player retiring/ coming out and a loss of revenue of the League. However, in Morey's case, there is a DIRECT cause-effect relationship.

Did NFL loses revenue from Kapernick or did they lose revenue over CTE? Both? Neither? How much $$$ on each. Slippery slope exists here.

So I do not see the slope as slippery when it comes to Morey's actions. As for Sterling, show me the loss revenue directly connected by his comments. They "punished" him, but where is Morey's "punishment"?

Agree0 Disagree4

13 Oct 2019 14:39:11
Morey didn’t do anything illegal, make up a lie or even do something that was against league rules. China overreacting to a tweet isn’t his fault and he has every right to any political beliefs that he wants. What could he be sued for?

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Oct 2019 21:38:21
Sterling didn't do anything illegal either. He just made comments that offended others. Morey's tweet essentially did the same. Where is Morey's punishment? Talk about a slippery slope.

I believe Morey can be sued because his comment may lead to lost wages by players and lost profits for the owners. Freedom of speech enable people to say things, but it doesn't protect you from the consequences of your words. Morey's tweet may lead to a loss for every player and owner in the league. He should have to reimburse innocent people for those losses.

Agree0 Disagree2

14 Oct 2019 00:32:30
Sterling was penalized by the league rules. A lawsuit would require a court ruling. That’s the difference.

If the league wanted to fine or suspend or ban Morey, maybe. But there’s no way a lawsuit happens.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Oct 2019 03:00:19
Fredman, actually, the league likely couldn’t have gotten Sterling out of the league legally. His wife tricked him into getting doctors appointments where he was diagnosed as having dementia and then she was the only owner who was competent of making the decision to sell the team.

The Chinese are the reason that the NBA could lose money. Morey has no control over what China does. Not to mention, if the CEO of a company runs it poorly and drives it into the ground, he can’t be sued by anyone for their wages. This is just an executive making a miscalculation that led to the company losing money.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Oct 2019 19:47:29
So there is no consequence for Morey's words? Then why the blanket "no comment" by the commish and players?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 00:12:06
They don’t want to make it worst?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2019 18:07:55
Yeah, they don't want to punish based on a personal opinion that isn't hurtful/ racist/ etc. But they don't want to make things worse.

Also, it looks like this is going to blow over. China isn't going to ban the NBA. So it doesn't look like any financial harm is going to be done.

Agree0 Disagree0
