top 10 pick and the cap space wins
well that begs the question of what we do with the cap space
we wouldn't have gotten evans
teams like Nola in the NBA have to trade for guys b/c will lead to us overpaying. with jrue, we got evans for a deal commensurate to his play, so we got 2 guys for market deals. that's going to be rare for the pellies
we also have a ceiling on what we can trade for, due to our market. we won't be a player in any deal similar to the one that led to the rockets getting harden, b/c we're not a big enough market for a superstar (almost assuredly).
cap space is only valuable if you are a market players want to go to. being at the cap is actually a big asset in the NBA, as is having salaries to trade in deals.
