Okc and Wash have no cap space to sign Kd
Nope they don't, they are who they are unless they start moving pieces.
True. They're strappped financially. 2nd highest payroll in the league as it stands. The salary cap will raise by 20 million next year to give them some tax relief, and I always believe that regardless of cash constraints, teams and individuals make the moves they want to make. They find a way to get things done.
Wouldn't shock me if KD was at a point where he said I'll take 5 million or so less, like a lot of these NFL QB's are doing, and try to see if it doesn't lead to something special. He has a little more at stake than your average superstar free agent I'd say, so it makes him even less predictable.
I will admit this. I rarely call it right as to where these guys are going! I thought Bron was staying in Cleveland the first time and Miami the second. So it's all broad speculation when it comes to what free agents will do. But it is fun speculating...
Tobias too, plus another max player.
Tobias is getting a nice contract. And earning it honestly. But I don't think he's maxed out. Think he's at 14.8 this season and last I heard he rejected an offer for 80 million. He was seeking the 188m deal for 5 but I hadn't heard if he was successful already or not. Anyone know?
Tobias is a max player for a poverty franchise like the Clippers...LA has no business paying a dude like that a max deal with players like Kuz that give a lot of what he gives to the team
Tobias may not deserve a max but the guy's a pro's pro. He's super solid and doesn't need the ball much to be effective. Looks like a mature dude who a franchise would never need to cater to or worry about. So while maybe he's not worth 30 or 40 million per year, seeing him get 25 to 30 would be a pretty good fit for most teams...
