If somehow Lakers able to flip Russ for LaVine, would that hard cap us? do we then have the full MLE to offer?

I have concerns with Monk’s game as I prefer defense over offense but I hate roster churn more…plus he was more than a decent shooter. Monk was our 4th best player last year so I would like to keep him for the tpMLE and play him as a 7th or 8th man against our opponents reserves.


Monk was a nice story this year, but he’s an undersized streak shooter who will get picked on in the playoffs (should we find ourselves back there). Using our only non-minimum salary on him seems unwise.

Yes to the first question. The second question is complex. Both V+ and Pincus have written about Lavine scenarios.

Lakers like him but not to a point were they would create extra cap space to retain him, I have heard that the Spurs like him and are gonna have cap space to spend this summer, if they somehow get Deandre Ayton/Malik Monk/ and another difference maker the Spurs would be a interesting team to watch next year

If it’s for the min again, sure.

Not sure the better option will be out there for the small exception, though I think your prior point about his shortcomings is accurate. I’m especially worried about having so many small guards. I don’t think you can give major roles to both Nunn and Monk.

Hopefully Nunn can be healthy.
A healthy Nunn at $5M should provide better cost per value over Monk at $8M+.

The FA pickings are indeed slim. I’ve got some favorites, some of which may be pipe. I just think someone on the team has to defend. Cobbling together another team of Monks and Melos and Ellingtons isn’t going to work.

I think we offer him that $6 million MLE we have, and see if he will take it, especially if he signs a 2 year deal, with a player option, so we can re-up him the following year. But, there is a good chance someone will throw him a 3 year $27-33 million dollar bone, and he will clean out from LA in a heartbeat.

That's a waste of only asset we have. We need a find long athletic wing
