1. "Why shouldn't Mil do this:"
In response to Reply # 0
Tue Jun-18-19 10:56 AM by auragin_boi

  

          

Chris Paul for Eric Beldsoe, Tony Snell and Ersan Ilyasova and a second round draft pick.

Money is about even. They get an upgrade at PG and a better fit next to Giannis. E-Bled is younger but I'd venture that Mil has the same level of diminishing returns over 3 yrs with Paul as they would with Bledsoe and they are already trying to offload Snell and Ersan.

Rockets get a competent PG who's score first so he won't be trying to coach Harden, is use to playing with a ball dominant star/playing second or third fiddle. They get a shooter, a 3 and D bench player and a pick.

Giannis/Paul pick and rolls would be devastating. Lopez, Brogdon, Niko (all re-signed) would love playing with Paul because they'd get better shots. And Paul is still good for the timely bucket if Giannis is struggling. Only issue would be durability but Paul could play the same number of minutes bledsoe did (29) to minimize over use and Brogdon can easily slide over to the PG when needed if Paul has to sit out.

>than twice the salary for an older player?

They are trying to trade Snell (12 mil) and ilyasova (7 mil) right now.

Bledsoe and Ersan's contracts run another 3 seasons. Snell's another 2.

The money is practically the same for almost the same period (could always trade Paul when he's close to expiring).

And Paul is better than Bledsoe and a MUCH better fit next to Giannis.

In the playoffs when the Bucks needed a big play that didn't come from Giannis, they came up crickets. Paul can mitigate that.

you made up in your head?

https://hoopshype.com/salaries/milwaukee_bucks/

Chris Paul makes more that twice what Bledsoe makes and is 6 years older no matter how to try to spin it lol. Bledsoe had an extra year but still the money is not anywhere close. Bledsoe just made first-team all defense.

Paul is a better player. Avg'd more stls and .1 less blocks than Bledsoe. Is a better shooter and passer. Most importantly, better fit next to Giannis than Bledsoe.

But yeah, I brought this up, never said it was reported anywhere (hence the question being asked). You don't have to agree or think it's a good trade for both teams...I do.

In response to Reply # 11


  

          

if you try to "package" those other guys in which doesn't make sense those other contracts could more easily be traded off individually and at this point on their careers CP3 is not that much better than Bledsoe for this to even remotely make sense.

Stay off of realGM fam lol

In response to Reply # 13


  

          

And I think they should go all in on trying to win next season. CP3 been in the West his whole career. Maybe being on the East side is a little easier for him. Kawhi did it for a yr and got a ring lol

I think the Bucks need a distributor and Houston needs a second wheel (not a semi-alpha).

They should just swap headaches. A 2yr rental of Cp3 isn't worse than E-Bled for 2 more seasons IMO.

that last year of $44mil. No GM in his right mind is taking on that contract.

And what exactly is Giannis supposed to be doing while CP3 is dribbling the air out of the ball?

Lot's of last yr contracts get traded for that reason. Or they could let it rock, get a fresh $44 mil to re-tool for another run. Giannis would be 27/28 right in the middle of his prime.

>that last year of $44mil. No GM in his right mind is taking
>on that contract.

A GM with cap and wants an additional asset who wants to make a run at multiple max free agents the next summer might.

>And what exactly is Giannis supposed to be doing while CP3 is
>dribbling the air out of the ball?

1-CP doesn't just dribble the air out the ball
2-A CP/Giannis pick and roll would be like a CP/Deandre Jordan pick and role but better
3-Even if CP did what you're claiming, Giannis can do what he did when Bledsoe did it this season (seeing as Bledsoe had a higher usage rate than Paul).

I'm talking about a GM that trades for that contract NOW.

And apparently CP3 wasn't very happy about his usage rate this year lol

>I'm talking about a GM that trades for that contract NOW.

If it's basically a swap out of cash (almost even money), the GM won't be as worried (and the deal I proposed is within range...maybe one extra throw in to make it even).

>And apparently CP3 wasn't very happy about his usage rate this
>year lol

Even if it increased, an extra 2% usage to 24%, which is what he was at the 2 seasons prior isn't killing the Bucks offense. Dude is a good passer and will find shooters. Much more than Bledsoe. So if he has the ball, other people will likely benefit. Who's going to complain about getting more/easier shots?

That deal makes some sense for the Bucks maybe, though it's a race against time. They might only get one good year out of Paul, if that.

But how does it make any sense for Houston?

and fml, the celtics have just fucked up this year in record breaking fashion. Al and Kyrie are walking, they have some mid-teens picks in a shallow draft and Rozier's probably not staying which is fine (he was definitely part of the problem this year, even though I think he's a good starting quality guard) except that the team suddenly lacks guards and centers.


and they'd have to renounce all their FAs to be able to make a max offer and who is taking that offer now? damn, danny's taking an L unless a miracle happens.

Its hard for them to go for this, after what happened with the Amar'e - Carmelo mashup that never really took hold.

I hope they trade down. And I would like for us to sign Brogdon (not as a max) and Jimmy Buckets, then draft a big (Hachimura) and a shooter to go with them.

He might not get the same type of yearly averages that he has now but could secure a four to five year deal that puts him back into a familiar setting and that would call for him to be Steph's sidekick while Klay is down for the year.

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

Even with KD leaving, the Warriors are going to be over the cap (please correct me if I'm wrong).

So they wouldn't be able to absorb Barnes contract unless he signed for the tax mid-level exception which for them is ~7M.

Barnes signing back with the Warriors would be weird. He'd be replacing the player the team replaced him with.

Opt out of 25 mil to get a longer term deal for financial security. Someone will throw like 4/70 at him - and it’s less than 25/yr but a lot of teams have money this year. Who knows next year.

In response to Reply # 21


  

          

But I see a clear path to them building the best team in the league before the end of July.

Guys like Taj Gibson, Deandre Jordan, Robin Lopez, Trevor Ariza, JJ Redick, Tyler Johnson, Darren Collison, Pat Bev, Marcus Morris, Seth Curry, Trey Burke, Manimal...these dudes might take that one yr title run. Some of them are old enough (but still productive enough) to ring chase.

Those vet min and exception deals might end up being better than people think.

Pistons will have a little less money next summer, and Snell has a player option for another year, but Leuer was a nonfactor and Snell is going to start

and after no 1st round draft pick last year, 15 and 30 feels like more than it probably actually is. good deal.

"Not so fast.

The Kyrie Irving-to-the-Brooklyn-Nets union seemed like a foregone conclusion for the last few days, but rumblings emerged Wednesday suggesting the Nets might pass.

"The Post has confirmed Brooklyn might have qualms about signing the enigmatic Irving if he isn't bringing the injured Durant with him," Brian Lewis of the New York Post wrote."

But as a stand-alone guy it seems like a repeat of the Celtics move at best. I guess they could play Kyrie and Russell together as a combo backcourt.

Baynes signed his player option like two weeks ago and now they're trying to trade him. It's mutual because he signed thinking the Cs were contenders. jesus...

anyway,if they can trade Baynes, they get real close to max cap space (like that matters...ain't no one going to boston).

the good news is this basically means Smart/Jaylen/Jayson are THE core and they're fun to watch (but not contender quality) . but there is zero team around them now.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

65. "League exec says KD is 'really pissed' @ Dubs (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


          

I generally have minimal investment in these types of headlines, but this KD take sounds way more accurate to me than the "oh yeah he's DEF staying w the team that rushed him back on the court" takes from a week ago

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2842500-kd-kyrie-met-twice-to-discuss-teaming-up-kawhi-still-has-nba-guessing?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=programming-national

The bond between two players who have a history of relationships gone awry—Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving—could well determine the biggest winners and losers in this year's All-Star-rich free-agent market.

At the crux of the rising drama and uncertainty surrounding where some of the league's top names will ply their trade next season are signals that Irving is as set on playing for the Brooklyn Nets as Durant is bound for the New York Knicks. Which wouldn't create any problems if not for the fact that Durant and Irving have been plotting for weeks, if not months, to continue their careers on the same team.

So which scenario will prevail? Good question.

It hardly helps that both Durant and Irving have a history of being temperamental and, at times, enigmatic. Irving abruptly went from a preseason pledge to stay with the Boston Celtics to bluntly stating he didn't "owe anybody s--t" when asked again about his intentions in February. No specific reason has been given for his change of heart, although a source close to Irving points to a tiff with team president Danny Ainge about how Irving was attempting to lead the club. Irving also, at one point, pretended to sincerely argue the earth was flat. It's not exactly the kind of track record that engenders confidence when you're about to make him your highest-paid player and team leader.

Durant's reputation for being forthright, meanwhile, has never completely recovered from the discovery that he had a secret social media account through which he commented on his reasons for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder as if he were a fan with inside knowledge—knowledge that Durant had previously publicly denied.

"Whatever Kevin is planning to do," says one league executive who has known Durant since he entered the NBA, "he is going to change his mind at least 25 times before he actually does it."

All of which makes it a challenge to handicap who will end up where. All that is fairly certain is that, eight days from now, more than a half-dozen NBA teams will scrap with one another for the right to hand out maximum-salary contracts to as many as nine players.

While Kawhi Leonard is the most highly sought free agent after winning his second Finals MVP with the Toronto Raptors and Durant is likely to miss all of next season recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon, whether or not Durant and Irving make their vision of playing together a reality is expected to be the most important, if not first, domino to fall.

Weeks after he helped the Raptors win their first championship, Kawhi Leonard still has much of the NBA uncertain as to where he will land in free agency.

Let's sort through what we know as of now...

• Durant and Irving, league sources say, have met twice in recent weeks to discuss their desire to continue their careers on the same team, an idea forged while playing together on the U.S. national team. The first meeting took place in the Bay Area while Durant nursed a strained right calf; the second occurred in New York shortly after Durant had surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

• Questions that linger over whether the strained calf led to the Achilles injury, and if the Golden State Warriors made him aware of that possibility, remain unanswered. But the indication from several league sources is that Durant is not happy with the team, and the presumption is that it stems from whatever role Warriors officials played in his decision to suit up. Coach Steve Kerr says he was told Durant could not further injure himself by playing, which obviously proved not to be true. If Durant was told the same, it would give credence to the notion that, as one league executive claims, "He's really pissed off at the Warriors."

• Ever since Durant signed a two-year deal with an opt-out clause after one season last summer, speculation has run rampant, both inside and outside the Warriors organization, that he intended to leave the Bay Area, with team and league sources pointing to the Knicks as his intended destination. In an overtime loss against the Los Angeles Clippers in November, Durant and Draymond Green argued over an end-of-game decision by Green not to give Durant the ball. Green, later that same night, reportedly questioned Durant's commitment to the team. Although both players later insisted the dispute was overblown and quickly resolved, sources familiar with Durant's off-court business say Durant has since purchased a new home in New York and moved his belongings there.

Durant already has multiple ties to the Knicks. General manager Scott Perry was an assistant GM with the Seattle/Oklahoma City franchise when the team drafted him. Durant is the godfather to a daughter of Royal Ivey (Lyric Ella), a fellow University of Texas alum, former Thunder teammate and now a Knicks assistant coach. DeAndre Jordan, who played for the Knicks this past season and is also a free agent, is another Durant confidant. Rich Kleiman, Durant's agent and business manager, is also a New Yorker and a Knicks fan who allegedly has long dreamed of being part of the organization.

• Irving, meanwhile, also recently purchased a new home in South Orange, New Jersey, but league sources say he is pressing Durant to join him with the Nets and is trying to recruit Jordan as well. Durant did have his Achilles repaired by a Nets team physician, Dr. Martin O'Malley, but the New York Post's Mark Fischer quoted one of O'Malley's medical colleagues warning not to read too much into that.

• While sources close to Durant and the teams involved say neither the Knicks nor Nets are concerned about signing him to a maximum four-year deal even if he's unavailable most of next season, his injury has shrunk the number of teams interested overall. One league executive said the Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers, who were both at one point interested, have backed off their pursuit because they are focused on building off their playoff success this past season.

• Though Durant is the one who's injured, Irving enters free agency as damaged goods as well. The chemistry issues that undermined his current team, the Celtics, has executives throughout the league as concerned about his leadership skills as they are enthralled with his talent. Signing him as a package deal with Durant is far more appealing than doing so as a lone addition, where he would be the best player on the team, recreating the dynamic that failed so miserably in Boston.

The chemistry issues that plagued the Celtics this season have some NBA executives wary of making Kyrie Irving the leader of their franchise.

• While the consensus is that neither Durant nor Irving intend to return to their current teams, the picture is less clear among league executives about where Leonard will end up.

While the odds-on favorites are the Clippers—fulfilling Leonard's supposed interest in playing where he grew up—one Eastern Conference vice president says the Raptors still have a "fighting chance" to re-sign him, while a Western Conference VP says the Lakers are operating as if "they think they have a strong shot" at adding Leonard after acquiring New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis to play alongside their incumbent star, LeBron James, in a deal that can't be officially consummated until next month.

To offer Leonard a max salary, however, the Lakers would have to push back the timing of their proposed deal for Davis to late July—which multiple reports state will not happen—or move additional players to open salary-cap room, which would then require a number of veterans to take league-minimum salaries to fill out the Lakers roster.

The Knicks, sources familiar with the team's thinking say, also believe they will get a chance to pitch Leonard on joining Durant in New York if Irving and the Nets strike a deal without Durant as part of it.

• The list of former or current All-Stars on the market grew with the report that Celtics center Al Horford is opting out of his contract and, as with Irving, not planning to return. The other key guys are Khris Middleton, Leonard, Durant, Irving, Jimmy Butler, Kemba Walker and Klay Thompson, although Thompson never expressed an interest in leaving the Warriors and is even less likely to do so after tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the Finals.

Speculation is that Horford has been made aware that a team is willing to give him a much more lucrative deal than the Celtics are, prompting his change of heart. The Pelicans, Clippers and Dallas Mavericks have all been mentioned as teams willing to make that promise, league sources say.

• More than a few of the players listed above, along with 76ers free-agent forward Tobias Harris, could land maximum-salary contracts—or terms close to one—in part because of their appeal in landing or keeping another bona fide max-salary player, several league executives say.

Tobias Harris may secure a max contract this summer partly based on his ability to lure another star to play alongside him.

The Knicks, for example, are not likely to offer Walker anything close to a max-salary deal unless A) they strike out on Leonard and Irving, and B) acquiring him is the link to signing Durant. Butler and Harris appear to be in the same pool: players who could command bigger contracts if signing them is a prerequisite for landing Durant or Leonard or keeping James happy. Similarly, the Bucks are expected to offer Middleton a max-salary contract to maintain their chance of keeping resident superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo when he enters free agency following the 2020-21 season. Thompson is almost certain to receive a max-salary offer, with the Warriors looking to persuade their fanbase the team will be (eventually) worth paying top dollar for tickets in its new San Francisco arena.

Which brings it all back to KD, who also developed a kinship with Butler on the national team and supposedly expressed a desire that they play together. Just as he supposedly told Thompson they had unfinished business after they suffered their respective injuries. Will these envisioned alliances or intentions become a reality? Which ones? In light of all the aspirations of players and teams alike, there's only one certainty:

Someone is not going to get what they had hoped for.

But it would definitely be entertaining

He’s our leader...until Jo/Ben mature into the role

We defer to him in must score situations

force his way to the Rockets to play 3rd fiddle to Harden & CP3 and watch them dribble the air out of the ball every night and where they already have drama?

And what player on Houston’s roster is Philly trading for?

DM that somehow got made public but wouldn't it have been easier to just type the player's name instead of trying to be cute?

I think its kind of weird for a grown man to call another grown man that anyway but we won't go there.

Like if he met JR Smith in person would he be like "What's up PIPE?" I guess some dudes actually asked him to sign a pipe so its not that far-fetched...: https://www.thescore.com/nba/news/1049841

Its funny because the guys in this pic is what I picture most of the posters on this board looking like lol

literally sit on that $31 million for a year and then handle contract situations next off-season.

but to sign a long term max when sitting for a year? his response would most likely be "do you know who i am" which is valid.

In response to Reply # 91


  

          

if he knows theres a couple of teams willing to max him out right now he needs to jump on it.

if he signs the option yeah he gets that $31 million now but depending on how his rehab goes theres a risk that teams aren't willing to give him the max next year.

In response to Reply # 93


  

          

leave a ton of money on the table AND go to new franchise where fans won't be nearly as patient as they would in northern California...

unless he really thinks the Warriors fucked him over with this injury I can't see him leaving.

He COULD do another 1+1 deal but I think he wants to not fuck around and secure the bag now.

In response to Reply # 90


          

Had he opted in, they could have had insurance cover 80% of his salary since it was under an existing contract. With it being a new contract, they can't file a claim against it. It seems a clear indication that he isn't going back to them.

They like, just signed Capella to this contract last year right?

And he and Tucker are both basically underpaid in today’s NBA.

Jimmy’s going to get paid 10-12 million a season more than their contracts combined.

100. "Desperation caused by a vulnerable Warriors."
In response to Reply # 99


  

          

Even if KD and Klay both resign, they're both out for, at minimum, a massive chunk of next season. If there's a team in the West that was waiting for a break in the Warriors domination, next year is an easy window to target. Plus, with CP3 not getting any younger, it's win now now now. One could argue that next year, with a Big Three, is maybe the best shot they have with this squad.

108. "The Five Most Interesting Under-the-Radar Free Agents"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Not every NBA team can land a ready-made superstar this summer. Here are five players (plus six more) who can make a big difference for a relative bargain.

By Dan Devine Jun 26, 2019, 6:45am EDT

NBA free agency kicks off on Sunday, and, if you’re reading this, it’s a good bet that you’re already very familiar with the most sought-after items on teams’ shopping lists. But you need more than a superstar or two to succeed in this league; just ask the Raptors, who a scant two weeks ago hoisted the Larry O’B powered by one true blue-chipper and a bunch of carefully chosen complementary pieces. Every team would love to add a Kawhi Leonard, a healthy Kevin Durant, or Kyrie Irving (or his talent, anyway). The difference between winning and losing, though, so often exists in the margins, and in the magic smart teams can make within them.

As we get set for this weekend’s feeding frenzy, let’s take a look at some below-the-fold types whom smart teams should be targeting, starting with low-key difference-makers in Indiana ...

Thaddeus Young
Power forward | Unrestricted free agent | Age: 31

OK, OK: I’m aware that focusing on a fill-in-the-blanks power forward on the wrong side of 30 who’s averaged 15 points per game only three times in 12 pro seasons removes all doubt about how thoroughly washed I am. But that doesn’t mean I’m wrong! Young is good, and probably better than you think.

The 6-foot-8, 221-pound forward is about as reliable as it gets. He has missed two games in the past two seasons and played in 73 or more in each of the past seven. He’s a dependable, versatile defender with the quickness to slide with guards and swingmen in space and the bulk to bang down low; save for Leonard’s work in the Eastern Conference finals, nobody’s done a better job of checking newly minted MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo in the past few years than Young.

Young makes his mark in the areas we often overlook. He keeps plays alive and ranks 10th among big-minute forwards in offensive rebound rate since coming into the league in 2007. He uses his length and quick hands to disrupt opposing offenses, ranking fifth in that group in steal percentage over that same period and finishing third in the league in deflections last season. He’s not an elite scorer, but he can bull his way to the basket and get you a bucket in the post. He’s not a playmaking stretch-4, but he can make the extra pass and hit a 3 off the catch. He’s a valued locker-room leader who has, just about every season, made his team better whenever he’s on the floor. Teams with a hole at the 4 could do a hell of a lot worse than looking to fill it with Young, a plug-and-play starter who does just about everything at a B or B-plus level.

Friendly suggestion: Jazz (if they move on from Derrick Favors), Celtics (if Al Horford’s out the door), Nuggets (if they decline Paul Millsap’s $30 million option)

Bojan Bogdanovic
Small forward | UFA | Age: 30

The Croatian forward opened a lot of eyes in the second half of last season while shouldering the burden of being Indiana’s no. 1 offensive option following Victor Oladipo’s season-ending quadriceps injury. He also helped the Pacers stay in the mix for home-court advantage in Round 1 until the dying embers of the regular season. After Oladipo went down, Bogdanovic averaged 20.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game, and posted a sterling true shooting percentage of 61.3 percent despite finishing more than a quarter of the Pacers’ offensive possessions. Only five players produced that combination of usage and shooting efficiency over the full 2018-19 season—four league MVPs and one of the most gifted big men in the sport.

Now, no one is saying that the 6-foot-8, 216-pound forward is about to join Giannis, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and Karl-Anthony Towns in the ranks of the league’s elite offensive talents. But his ability to stroke the 3 and work off screens, threaten defenses both off the bounce as an emerging pick-and-roll operator and off the ball as a weak-side cutter, and credibly defend both frontcourt spots makes him an intriguing option for teams in need of firepower that lack the scratch to shop at the top of the free-agent market.

Bogdanovic will likely command a significant raise over the $10.5 million he earned last year in Indiana. (In a possibly related story, the Pacers traded for a new offense-first combo forward in T.J. Warren.) But for a team looking for a secondary creator with the juice to do more when called upon, Bogdanovic could be well worth the price.

Friendly suggestion: Spurs (if they can make a couple of moves), Lakers

Patrick Beverley
Point guard | UFA | Age: 30

Beverley is an attractive free-agent target because he can fit into a ton of different roster constructions. Just about every team could use an excellent on-ball defender at the point of attack, a player who can initiate offense, cede control of the action to a more dominant scoring force, and finish a play with a spot-up triple or a drive past a closeout.

He’d make sense grinding alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis with the Lakers, or back with the Clippers as part of an evolved roster possibly built around a certain Finals MVP. He’d make sense for rebuilding teams with high-usage pieces already in place—say, next to Luka Doncic in Dallas, or Devin Booker in Phoenix, or the burbling young core in his native Chicago. It remains to be seen how long teams will be willing to commit to a hard-charging type with a lengthy injury history—Beverley has played more than 65 games just three times in seven NBA seasons (and he turns 31 on July 12). And it’ll be interesting to see whether Beverley, who has never made more than $6.5 million in a season, will prioritize title contention or making the top dollar in what could be his last chance to secure the bag.

Whichever route he goes, dudes who know their roles, never stop playing them, and hold their teammates accountable for doing likewise are worth their weight in gold—especially when they can stand toe-to-toe with immortals in the crucible of the postseason without blinking or backing down.

Friendly suggestion: Lakers, Suns, Mavericks, Bulls, Clippers, Celtics

Jeremy Lamb
Shooting guard | UFA | Age: 27

It went largely unremarked upon, because nobody really paid too much attention to the non–Kemba Walker Hornets last season, but Lamb just had himself a career year. Away from the prying eyes of the basketball-watching public, Lamb has become a versatile and vital complementary wing; the UConn product was one of only 21 players in the league last season to average 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, and a steal per game—a group full of All-Stars and highly touted youngsters headed that way.

At 6-foot-5 with a 6-foot-11 wingspan, Lamb can check a bunch of boxes for teams in need of a multifaceted solution at the swing spots. He’s not necessarily a lockdown artist, but he can reasonably defend multiple perimeter positions. He’s a legitimate threat spotting up off the ball, and shot 38.5 percent from 3 on catch-and-shoot tries in each of the past two campaigns. His shot accuracy on corner 3s last season ranked in the 99th percentile in the NBA, according to Cleaning the Glass. He’s also a viable secondary creator who can run some two-man game; Lamb finished in the 73rd percentile or better as the ball handler in the pick-and-roll in each of the past four seasons on a sample of more than 1,000 such plays, according to Synergy Sports Technology’s charting.

The Hornets obviously have bigger fish to fry in free agency. Charlotte already has nearly $98 million in guaranteed salary on the books before any potential new deal for Walker; if Michael Jordan backs up the Brink’s truck to bring Kemba back, the Hornets will be deep into luxury tax territory, and could have a hard time justifying the extra expenditure to keep Lamb in the fold. Food for thought for teams that might not be able to afford someone like Khris Middleton or Malcolm Brogdon, but could still use some help on the wing.

Friendly suggestion: Lakers, Pacers, Magic, 76ers (if they lose their max guys)

Tomas Satoransky
Point guard | Restricted free agent | Age: 27

Trying to sign another team’s restricted free agent is always a dicey proposition. Having your cap space tied up for two days while the incumbent team decides how to play things can mean missing out on other opportunities to improve your team, and if that team decides to match your offer sheet, you wind up with bupkis to show for it beyond maybe building some goodwill with an agent. If you’re going to target a restricted type to poach, though, it makes sense to go after a guard on a team that has already maxed out two of them. Washington will pay $65.2 million for John Wall and Bradley Beal next year, despite only one of them being able to play, and that number will only go up in the years to come. As a result, a Wizards front office still without a long-term GM might blanch at the idea of flirting with the luxury tax to lock in a third guard.

Despite that third-guard billing, Satoransky has proved capable of handling a lead role in the NBA. He made 84 starts in place of an injured Wall during the past two seasons and put up strong numbers in his stead, averaging 10.6 points, 6.1 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 31.8 minutes per game, with 50/44/83 shooting splits. He’s not a top-shelf individual shot creator and is much more likely to shoot off the catch than off a live dribble, which can limit the amount of pressure he puts on a defense in the half court. But he’s a steady hand with good vision who makes smart decisions with the ball. He tied for 12th in the league in assist-to-turnover ratio in 2018-19, and is a bona fide glue guy who knows how to run a team unselfishly. (Never forget: #EverybodyEats.) At 6-foot-7 and 210 pounds, he’s got the size to help plug gaps defensively at either guard spot, and the smarts to be in the right spot in the team scheme more often than not.

Satoransky’s no star, but he’s solid, and at a position as critical as the point, that matters. Maybe, with Wall out of the picture for the foreseeable future and few other bankable ball handlers and movers in the mix, Washington can’t afford to lose him. But with the tax looming, an offer sheet with some teeth could force the Wiz to swallow hard and part ways with a high-floor table-setter who can also do damage spotting up.

Friendly suggestion: Pacers, Suns, Magic

Some Honorable Mentions

Julius Randle, PF, UFA

I’ll be honest: I still don’t know exactly what to make of Randle. There’s so much to like on the offensive end of the floor. Last season, he turned in a career year in New Orleans: 21.4 points and 3.1 assists in 30.6 minutes per game, a surprising 34.4 percent mark from 3-point range on almost three tries a night, looking for stretches like an unguardable Juggernaut rampaging in the open court to the basket. And then, well, there’s the other end.

ESPN’s real plus-minus graded Randle as one of the least helpful big men in the league last season; opponents shot 64.7 percent at the rim with Randle contesting, which landed him 40th out of 48 bigs to defend at least four up-close tries a game. Even so, he had a positive on-court/off-court differential last season for the first time in his career, and at just 24 years old, with his résumé as a scorer and rebounder, someone’s going to pay to find out whether he can put it all together and become a star. It just might not be a very good team.

Reggie Bullock, SF/SG, UFA

Everybody needs big wings who can shoot, and over the past four seasons, only 14 players who have attempted at least 500 3-pointers have shot ’em more accurately than Bullock. Things didn’t go so hot for him after he joined the Lakers at the trade deadline, but you’d be hard-pressed to pin that clusterfuck on him. Granted a stable role playing alongside facilitators who’ll know when, where, and how to get him the ball, Bullock, 28, seems a good bet to return to being one of the league’s best catch-and-shoot marksmen. And while he’s far from a shutdown defender, he’s got size (6-foot-7, 6-foot-9 wingspan) and enough athleticism to at least compete enough on that end to stay on the floor. He may yet be a central-casting shooter alongside LeBron in L.A.; the Lakers have his Bird rights, so they could go over the cap to re-sign him after making more moves to round out their roster. If he chooses to look elsewhere, though, he’d likely draw interest; he’d be helpful just about everywhere.

Terrence Ross, SF/SG, UFA

Once again: Everybody needs big wings who can shoot, and no bench player made more triples last season than Ross’s 217, a career high and the 10th-best mark in the entire NBA. In his seventh season, the 6-foot-7 former Raptor settled comfortably into a role as Orlando’s designated microwave, an inveterate gunner who started firing as soon as he checked in and didn’t stop until he checked out; only Harden, Steph, Eric Gordon, and kindred spirit Gerald Green jacked more 3s per 100 possessions. Magic president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman has said that keeping Ross and All-Star center Nikola Vucevic will be the team’s top priority this summer, but if Ross, 28, is cool with staying in that Human Torch role off the bench, he could be the sort of carry-the-offense-for-a-few-minutes option another playoff hopeful would love to have around.

Ricky Rubio, PG, UFA

Rubio’s time as the starting point guard in Utah ended as soon as the Jazz swung their deal for Mike Conley, a similarly heady playmaker who packs the 3-point shooting punch that Rubio has just never been able to consistently provide. His defensive aptitude, genius court vision, and passing flair still have value, though, especially for teams that could benefit by upgrading from underwhelming to simply solid at the point. Our Kevin O’Connor has reported that the Pacers, who leaned hard on Darren Collison and Cory Joseph last season, are interested in the 28-year-old Spaniard.

JaMychal Green, PF, UFA

The ex-Grizzlies big man made a seamless transition into the Clippers’ playoff rotation after joining the team at February’s trade deadline. That’s thanks in large part to the work he’s put into becoming a rare combination of floor-spacing and glass-cleaning; the 6-foot-9 forward last season became one of just six players in Basketball-Reference’s database to shoot at least 40 percent from 3-point range on 150-plus attempts and have a defensive rebounding rate north of 24 percent. Green’s also a smart veteran frontcourt defender who can moonlight as a small-ball 5 in a pinch—the Clips outscored Golden State by 15 points in 89 Green-at-center minutes in their first-round playoff series, which could make him more attractive to teams looking to add more two-way versatility in the frontcourt.

And One Not-Quite-Free Agent: Derrick Favors

Derrick Favors started 70 games for the Jazz last season, and helped Utah make its third consecutive trip to the playoffs with his bruising work as a screener, interior scorer, and paint-patrolling defender. A team built on its defense has maintained confidence in the viability of a Favors–Rudy Gobert frontcourt, despite the lack of 3-point shooting and floor spacing that combo provides and the challenges that can create in the playoffs. Favors also eats up center minutes when Gobert leaves the floor, ensuring that the Jazz have an elite interior menace on the court at virtually all times. He probably isn’t going anywhere.

And yet: It’s possible that the Jazz, seeing an opportunity to break all the way through to the top of the West given the chaos in Golden State and the addition of Conley, could explore options for more big-game hunting this summer. (Especially considering Utah traded Jae Crowder, its only real stretch-4 and a linchpin of its best lineups during the past two seasons, in the Conley deal.) One quick path to creating significant salary cap space to do so is waiving Favors before July 6, thus striking his non-guaranteed $16.9 million contract from the books. Of note: Tony Jones of The Athletic tweeted Monday that, while the Jazz love Favors, “he’s not a lock to come back” should Utah work its way into something interesting over the next few days.

If Favors shakes loose, expect a bunch of good teams to be in on him. The only reason Gobert’s defensive on-court/off-court numbers weren’t eye-popping during his second consecutive Defensive Player of the Year campaign is because Favors was so friggin’ good backing him up. Opponents shot just 50.1 percent at the basket with Favors defending, the no. 1 mark among 107 big men to face at least three such shots per game last season. He’s mobile enough to defend in space, too, while remaining an efficient pick-and-roll finisher, a mauling back-to-the-basket scorer, and an excellent rebounder on both ends. And he’ll turn just 28 on July 15, meaning you’ll still be getting prime years on his next contract.

Favors will probably remain a foundational piece of the Jazz roster as they try to get past the second round for the first time since 2007, and to make it out of the West for the first time since the heyday of Stockton-to-Malone. Just something to keep an eye on as things start to get wild.

I had the recent misfortune of listing to Mason/Ireland in the car when taking my pops to an appointment. They were going through what role players the Lakers could spend cap space on if they didn't get a max guy. Both hyperlocal, under-studied dunderheads agreed that Melo would be a good option (LMAO). But that was a momentary discussion. The one guy kept pressing "DARREN COLLISON, a point guard who can shoot!" Now like a week later he retires. Do these guys even watch the NBA?

By the time Tatum and Brown turn into what Celtics hope they will, Kemba will be in decline. They’ve capped their ceiling at second round exit for four years, and they have zero big men on the roster and no easy way to get them.

In response to Reply # 132


  

          

leaving has kind of being a forgone conclusion for a while. Despite a lot of big talk AD was a long shot for them all along.

I’m sure Danny had to have a plan B.

If it doesn’t convey next year, it rolls over to unprotected in 2021. So they have a pick that has (back of the envelope math) a 10-20 percent chance of being top 3. Whoopdee damn do.

To write, like, a 30,000 word complete takedown of the Danny Ainge long con and the media’s support for it. Safe to say, if any other organization in the league mad a panic signing like Kemba, they’d be getting annihilated.

the “Danny Ainge is great GM” story is a joke. He probably still gives McHale a percentage of every check he gets or st least he should.

you're really pressed to discredit him.

even here when shit has all gone wrong (hayward injury, kyrie injury, kyrie departure) he is managing to sign a very suitable replacement for kyrie.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

So if Kyrie left us and we didn't get anyone in return you'd be roasting us. But we got someone in return and it's still bad???

Tell me again why y'all traded for Butler to end up in the same spot and then let him go?

130. "Kyrie/Brooklyn close to $141M Deal (Woj)"
In response to Reply # 0
Sat Jun-29-19 05:31 PM by murph71

          


According to Woj.....

"Free agent Kyrie Irving is meeting with the Brooklyn Nets in New York on Sunday and both sides are motivated to move quickly toward reaching a 4-year, $141M deal, league sources tell ESPN."

"Once Kyrie Irving commits to a deal, Nets are expected to renounce All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell and allow him to become an unrestricted free agent, league sources tell ESPN. Russell led Nets to the playoffs this past season. There's tremendous league-wide interest in Russell."

"The Los Angeles Lakers reached out to D'Angelo Russell's agents at CAA -- Austin Brown and Aaron Mintz -- to set up a meeting with the All-Star guard, league sources tell ESPN. The Lakers and Russell share a mutual interest in a reunion. Lakers have the cap space to sign him."

Genuinely the funniest fucking thing I've earned so far this offseason.

Just reminds me of the Team America scene in which she says she'll sleep with him if he promises he'll never die. He turns dramatically and promises he'll never die.

Wiggins is gonna mosey into that meeting, say he's committed to improving with a straight face, sign the max deal, and coast for the half-decade doing the same shit as always.

What a turnaround of the franchise. I don’t believe in this trio for the chip but to take what they had when they were a laughing stock and flip it in just 3+ seasons to be able to sell these 3 on coming is a hell of a turnaround.

It’ll be a different team for Kenny to coach and I’m not sure he can do it— but to be in thIs position is all you can ask for

IMO, rather have Brodgon for 4-yr/85 (21mill per) than Middleton for 5-yr/178 (36mill per). Brogdon outplayed Middleton in the ECF.

As long he stays healthy then it's a good deal for Indy considering Rozier got 3yrs/58.

Saric, Johnson, Jerome and now Rubio all have well-defined roles on this team. It might be questionable to have started looking for role guys when they had a shot to draft a potential star, but their management went in that direction and they went in it decisively. I kind of like it.

An over 30 player coming back off of an Achilles tear...

That's tough from an investment perspective. It could literally be two years before he's back to 'normal'. By then, he'll be pushing 32 or 33 without the explosiveness he once had. Without another legit star coming, there was no reason to dive all in on KD.

In response to Reply # 192

Basically it'll be a situation where they are never off the floor at the same time. They'll split them up as much as possible but obviously with both guys playing north of 30 minutes, they will be on the floor together as well. Let's see if it works for finishing games. A lot of this depends on what Harris can do--do we get peak Harris or shitty playoff Harriss--and if some of these other guys can find ways not to let their men double JoJo. Simmons is on that list--he's likely to be guarded by an athletic guard or wing with good length--but so too are their assortment of no-shot wings like the last two guys they drafted in the first round. Can those guys move enough to keep their man from sagging into the paint? Can they find any shooters in the vet min market? There are so many questions for the Sixers now BUT they did diversify here by keeping Harris and essentially plugging in two guys in Butler's place in addition to having Thybulle and a healthy Smith.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 190


  

          

Unless Harris can be a consistent 20-25 guy in the playoffs they are going to struggle to score since he's their only other scoring threat besides Embiid. Even ReDick caused havoc w/ his movement & was able to be a dance partner for Embiid.

Right now it looks like a million postups for Embiid & that's not going to work in end of game situation where Butler thrived.

WHAT'S GOOD *****? What's REALLY good?!?!????!!! Ha HA!

232. "Why not? Tito has played plenty of four. He also slides over."
In response to Reply # 188


  

          

A big thing was that Philly had no capable backup center and consequently their on/off splits for Embiid were AWFUL, especially on defense. So not only can they play together, the time they are split up might be the most valuable part of this deal.

The problem here is Horford's age. Years 1 and 2 better be damn good because year 3 is looking iffy and year 4 is going to be a challenge to unload his expiring deal possibly. The upside is that Horford has never depended on his ability to run or jump, so his game should age pretty well, much like Tim Duncan's did (not to compare their level of play but rather their lack of reliance on athleticism).

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I would think they could play together in a lot of situations. Horford’s got some versatility to him.

We know Embiid isn’t playing anywhere near all 82, so it helps having the depth inside too.

I'm assuming he gets bought out & signs w/ the Lakers or Rockets.

236. "less cap space than a max deal for KD though"
In response to Reply # 207


  

          

iggy gives them flexibility. i am sure the buyout or flip is coming for iggy. memphis made the deal for the pick, GS made it for the lux tax savings.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I'm assuming they're not done, but overall they took a step in the wrong direction IMO. I'm a DLo fan tho so I'm glad he landed where he did

That was their choice. They can figure out the fit or if they move him later. For now they got relief during a full-scale disaster given the injury/departure of KD and the injury of Klay.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Thought they'd work on depth this offseason, then in 2020, bring someone in like DeRozan for when Klay gets back. They did the right thing here
