10.7 + #13 slotted salary/1.9mil=13mil. i think i summed that up correctly.
Yes, that's a lot for a 1st in this draft, the only way it works is if you can use Marion, which we can, BUT if we're the only one that can use Marion then we're the only one on the market willing to pay more than Vince Carter which means we can set the price at Vince Carter if we so choose. You'd have to feel you had no big or medium money options to take on Marion.
a lot of suggestions on here are to deal and flip. why not just use our own cap space, picks and 1year guys to get the same outcome.
Why not do it all?
Oladipo falls to 6, trade with TWolves for DWill and #9. Flip DWill for Wilson Chandler. Take on Carter for #13.
The one problem with this route is you now no longer have star level cap space even in 2014, but if you make the right picks you did just acquire a bunch of mid level assets that can be flipped in a trade a la Houston getting James Harden.
