curious....what do you think it would cost for the Lopez brothers? They kind of offset each others weaknesses, and would not be too upset about yielding playing time to each other.....just not sure what type of money they will get this summer.


I doubt that Brook has any desire to return here. Bridges are burnt.

Bridges are often rebuilt with money. (But I wouldn't blame him for not wanting to take the Lakers money.)

right now, assuming we are unable to get a Tier 1 FA....I would prefer...

--to sign a Kemba or Butler ($30ish Million)
--trade down in draft to increase cap space....even consider trading for a 2019 2nd and 2020 1st. Use 2nd Round pick on a 3rd string Center (Charles Bassey or Azibuke).
--keep Bullocks cap hold ($4.5ish Million)
--use remaining cap on backup Center (Kyle O'Quinn?)
--use Room Exception on Center (Nerlens Noel?)
--try to fill out roster with minimum contract shooters and/or defenders (Thabo Sefolosha, Jeff Green, Wilson Chandler, DeMarre Carroll)
--need a cheap backup PG

This is where I am right now....but I could see a path to pass on the max guy, and build out with more quality depth.

This is pretty much where I think we stand. How we fill out the center rotation will be interesting. Some interesting prospects but we MUST find a center who can space the floor.


really? I have never felt that was a must as long as you have 4 "capable" shooters on the floor....of which 3 are "above average" shooters. I actually prefer my Center to be a rim protecting, rim running and rolling to the basket Center.


Spacing.

If you have say LBJ/Jimmy/BI, you'll need to maximize spacing for them to attack.

Agreed.

@Mr. Untouchable: Kawhi Leonard is in fact in attendance at LeBron James Toronto Reunion one source said.

It's been reported that Kawhi was spotted at LBJ's party in Toronto last night. Keep planting the seeds LeRecruit.

"It's been reported" - maybe the most passive-aggressive meaningless phrase in the history of news-breaking.

I agree when it comes to just rumors of what someone's opinion is behind closed doors but this is different... you cant really BS about someone physically being in attendance at something

Bron needs to get down on his knees for Kawhi to come here. Rich Paul better offer him some Space Jam type movie roles or other projects with Bron.

fighting words anywhere.

Bron needs to be prepared to do whatever it takes like Andy King during the Fyre Festival

I totally get the "Moneyball" approach here, but Magic/Rob are no "Moneyball" guys.

Now, applying both your prescriptive (what you suggest) and predictive (what we think Maginka) will do, what is your lineup?

I'd have to run the numbers, but not sure we can have Bullock's cap hold and enough to sign Dedmon to that amount. I really don't think Mbah is getting a full room exception coming off a year where he was hurt most of the season and is 32. I would in your scenario use the RE on Bullock (might have to relinquish his Bird rights?).

I think Seth Curry is getting more than the minimum though.
