    Right that's why Durant took less to go to Golden State, Kawhi wants out of where he can get paid the most, and Cousins is playing for $5 mil

    You sure its a certainty? I read an albiet confusing tweet a few days ago that had a lot of numbers in it but the gist of it was if they stretch him, it could actually hurt the team long term. It would be split up to 9 mil per year for like 3 years and with all of OKC's other contracts, that still leaves them at the tax line and making it extremely hard to add talent to their team because adding any player with even an average salary will push them over again.

    The situation basically boils down to stretch him, save tax money, but you're basically stuck with no way to improve for 3 years

    or

    Eat the money this year and have more freedom for the following 2 to 3 years.

    Yes I’m positive, they save $91M on this year’s tax bill by cutting and stretching him. It’s going to happen, good riddance.

    You regurgitate nonsense on a regular basis in this forum so maybe you should take a break.

    I read they're still working with Melo on potential trade options too. But they've notified Melo that one way or another he won't be apart of the team next year.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    The only thing Melo would be hired to do is to clean up the arena after everyone left.

    It'd be pretty funny if the league REQUIRED the Ws to sign him, for that reason. Plus they need to make Lavar Ball an assistant coach.
