If only Koby Altman / Dan Gilbert understood this
But only because the players they would return from LA would be high end prospects. I would hold out for Ingram and Ball with Deng and a pick or 2, but I do think the Spurs would be significantly better off taking Ingram and Ball than letting him walk.
How does it make sense for the Celtics, other than dodging a potential Kyrie exit? It creates an even bigger logjam at the wings, plus I don't believe Kyrie is close to enough for Kawhi (unless Kawhi never gets completely healthy).
You don't spot sarcasm very well do you? You really think @LogicMan was being serious?
Kawhi is better, they can play 3 of their elite 4 wing players at the same time, they have Rozier and Smart (sometimes) who can play point and I am more worried about Kyrie's knees than I am about Kawhi's quad.
Danny Green confirmed there is no tension in the locker room. He most likely signs long-term.
Nothing to see here people
Danny Green the Irish mobster from Cleveland said that? Damn, I thought someone blew his ass up back in the 70's?
If I was desperate and needing a trade I wouldn’t even ask for Kyrie unless they threw in another play, injuries too serious. I would say Hayward, Brown/Tatum and picks but Haywards’ contract is up there
yeah, kinda like how a Steph for Terry Rozier deal makes a lot of sense for both teams.
Both players have some issues to prove out next year. I like Kyrie but if you follow Brad's objectives its hard to argue with his positionless plan of Jaylen/Jason/Kawhi/AL/Hayward Throw in Rozier and Smart as guards and that bench and is hard to find a deeper younger more flexible team in the nba. They all can shoot so they are built for the playoffs
Hayward would be a great fit in the Spurs system
...and Kyrie fits the Spurs system how?
he is probably the best player they can get for Kawhi IF Kawhi wants out
Great player but injury prone. I would rather take Heyward, more of a team player and add in Brown. More appealing imo
It also assumes some other team wouldn’t say “Screw it, we’ll top the Lakers offer even if he’s only here one year.” Sort of like Paul George to OKC.
It’s a shame The Snake traded the Kings pick to trade up for Fultz. Imagine if we were talking 2017 #3 (whoever was selected there), 2018 #10, Covington, and 2019 SAC. So much more appealing than Fultz, Cov, #10.
I believe the super max is contingent upon his last season played in which you make DPOY, All-NBA first/second team, etc... so I think they're looking at his last season fully played (or maybe they consider a range of two years).
If Kawhi doesn't sign that extension and goes into FA, I feel that it's a million percent chance that he won't be a Spur for long.
In this case, I doubt Popovich would fulfill his request. I think Pop would be more content with just letting Kawhi leave for nothing after the season.
Right. Until FA starts, I believe that last season is actually the 2016-2017 season when Leonard was All-NBA. On July 1st, it is 2017-2018 and he is longer ALL-NBA obviously.
