Starting a new FA thread. Last one is way too big at this point.

Can we at least get solid meetings with Batum and Horford? Mavs get a meeting with Batum, but we get a phone call?

Is this for good luck since the other thread is filled with heartbreak, disappointment, rejection, sadness, depression and misery?

Already making an impact, bigfetz. Nice.

I guess we should be grateful since Whiteside won't even give us that right now. :P

Batum is great, but let's say the phone call isn't convincing enough for him...

 

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't mind going after both Parsons and Dwight together.  This team really needs a quality Center and despite one's hatred for what Dwight did, I still think he brings alot to the table.  I'd give Dwight a contract like $50 million for 2 years and see if he bites.  Although many on this forum hate Dwight, I still think he'd be an ideal fit around our young core in terms of talent (probably not off the court or leadership wise though haha).

 

Think about, would you rather pay Biyombo max money, or Dwight in the $25-27 range for just 2 seasons.  2018 = THE REAL FREE AGENCY CLASS

maybe it's because Mitch has to meet with someone else in a different location around the same time

Not sure how I feel about the Batum phone call. If I'm Mitch and company, I would push for a FaceTime meeting. Then we'd be in business.

@ChrissBroussard According to multiple sources involved around the situation, Smush Parker has granted video chat rights to the Lakers at 9:01 Pacific Standard Time.

Isn't it possible that we are the ones that couldn't meet his face to face?

I know that would be dumb but we could be tied up in something else at the time he wanted to meet

Or am I being Maj type of optimistic?

Sign 2 of them to one year max deals so we at least meet the salary floor.
