Cap Space Math After Signing Kawhi (after Deng Stretch) Summer 2019
To sign Kawhi next summer, we will need to either dump Deng or stretch him. If we stretch him, we'll need to rescind all of our rights/cap holds for our FAs. Here is the math -

$37,430,000......LeBron James (1)
$32,700,000......Kawhi Leonard (2)
$8,719,320........Lonzo Ball (3)
$7,265,485........Brandon Ingram (4)
$2,164,680........Moritz Wagner (5)
$1,974,600........Kyle Kuzma (6)
$1,934,160........Josh Hart (7)
$1,550,000...Ö...Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (8)
$1,416,852........Isaac Bonga (9)
$897,158...........Min Salary (10)
$897,158...........Min Salary (11)
$897,158...........Min Salary (12)

$6,200,000........Luol Deng (1 year $18.8m Stretched)
____________
$104,046,571

$109,000,000 (Cap) - $104,046,571 (Salaries) = $4,953,429 cap space left

Man, it's going to be painful on lottery night when we watch either the Celtics or the 76ers get our pick. We've had 4 years of intrigue on lotto ball night. Yikes.

And now Denver looks like a playoff team, so their 2nd round pick will probably be around 45-50. I anticipate a much less popular draft thread this year

Another thing to watch out for is teams that could hit the re-set button by next summer looking to jettison top talent for cheap assets. The Cavs and Pelicans seem like obvious choices depending on the free agency decisions of Lebron and Boogie. Detroit seems likely to move Drummond at some point, while Memphis, Toronto, and Charlotte could also look to blow things up if they fail to reach or advance far in the playoffs.

Yeah, plan B could be to absorb contracts. We could trade our 2019/21 after the 2018 draft? (Not that i recommend it).

Oh man, you might be right.

Either lots of celebrating and joy or terrible weeping and gnashing of teeth. What a lot of pressure next summer.

It will be good to ignore the draft again, though not for the reason I was hoping for.

Hmm. Do you think LBJ would come without another bona fide star (and Wade/Brook/KCP aren't it).

There are a few teams with good players on contracts that end in 2019. They could potentially dump those players with a pick and become players in 2018 free agency.

Yeah. Can't wait until we have our TEAM finally put together. Seems like so much instability/roster turnover year after year.

For the record, the 2017 Free Agency thread has reached 1815 pages as of today (2 games into the 2017-2018 preseason).


Considering we're targeting 2 max superstars... this thread will hit 2000+ pages easy
