"NBA Free Agency"


          

Is it to early to start taking about this?

Does Kyrie opt out for a max deal? do the Nets give it to him?

There's no way it doesn't address guaranteed contracts in regard to shit like this.

A few pods back he was talking about how he expects owners to push for GP tied to payment regardless of its “rest” or actual injury and thinks it could be the biggest fight at the table

During his exit interviews he's been saying the typical
"keeping all of his options open" line. I mean, he's supposed to say that.

I'll be shocked if Zach LaVine doesn't resign with Chicago.

The REAL offseason move to watch with the Bulls is Coby White.
I think the organization is going to put their chips behind Ayo
and try to trade White.

That’s all you need to know. Loyalty is not his signature.

Plus Bulls don’t super max players. They didn’t
max Butler, and it’s not going to happen here. 40 something million
per for a defensive liability and 2nd scoring option?

We can’t have 3 weak defenders on the floor at the same time.

David Griffin on an extension: …that conversation is going to be one that will be a challenge. Right now what we are focused on is him being healthy and kind of elite condition to play basketball…

He can't wait to get *paid*
Not to play in NO
They need to trade him this offseason.

If not, they'll sign him, and he'll want out early in the contract, and then it will become a problem. Cut bait now before that happens.

He shouldn't be saying shit like that publicly IMO, but he's right.

Griffin shouldn't be expressing hesitation publicly like that, but he's right to be reluctant. Because you're right: he could extend and demand a trade nearly instantly, lol.

And the Pelicans played pretty well with McCollum and Ingram as The Guys. If you think Zion won't be able to take the court regularly enough to maximize on his absolutely absurd talent, and you think the guys you have are enough to build around?

Then I'd see if there's a team willing to run a sign-and-trade-- where they give Zion the extension they have available as the drafting team, and see if there's a team with a star or some package of strong pieces worth that amount of salary that they can bring in to supplement McCollum and Ingram.

Obviously might backfire if Zion can stay on a court, because dude isn't even 22 yet and already has an ASG under his belt, so the upside if it works out is super apparent...

... but if the Pelicans have two stars now (they do), if they think they can start pushing for higher playoff seeding next season (possible, depending on offseason deals), and they think Zion isn't genuinely interested in staying (clearly), then deal Zion to a team that is willing to ship win-now pieces in exchange for the insanely-high-future-upside swing of the bat.

they've been garbage his whole life but his face lights up and he gets all starry-eyed when talking about The Mecca lol

I wonder what the Knicks would have to do to get him, Randle + picks to start with probably
