well followed by the exception so around 5 mill
Exception is included in the cap space. Once the cap space is gone, exception is too. Can't get it back until next year.
Westbrook might come but not durant.
Possible...not likely...remains to be seen.
We will not be tanking. But it will look like it.
Looks like a duck, sounds like a duck....
I think at this point we should just eat the last year of Nash's contract or trade him if possible. No reason to stretch it when it won't give us enough to add a difference maker.
Keep him. He may have to medically retire. In that situation, we get cap relief AND a medical exception to sign another player.
If he doesn't retire, combine his salary with Lin's and that's a lot of cap space for a team looking to move a player and get under the cap.
We will have options. I'm just not a fan of trying to land a player next year unless it's a player or players that we can combine to land a big fish in the future.
