re: Batum and . . . draft pick - corndeaux
There is nothing in your post that has any relevance to, or displays any understanding of, the reality of the NBA CBA, NBA FA market, and capitalism in general. Congrats on the golden sombrero. :bow:...

[quote]already had my two superstars on good contracts [/quote] My god. This is the entire point. Every superstar is on a good contract because their earning are capped artificially. Anthony Davis will be underpaid when his max kicks in. LeBron James has been making (often much) less than half...

re: Batum and . . . draft pick - corndeaux
Would be an ideal FA signing (non KD/LeBron division). We saw how big a difference just a non corpse wing made two seasons ago. Batum is significantly better than QPon. As for the pick- I'm just hoping they don't turn it into a 3rd tier player who will be 3x as expensive as a rookie. Unfortunate...

re: Jamal Murray vs Jaylen Brown - corndeaux
This is all tilting at windmills. I found Demps's Summer To Do List: Step 1- trade 2016 1st, and 2017 top 3 protected pick to Phoenix for Brandon Knight. Step 2- sign Brandon Jennings this summer Step 3- bring back Anderson and Perkins Step 4- sign Roy Hibbert. Every NBA team in 2016 n...

re: Offseason Dell Demps Job Watch - Day 20 - lolbasketball - corndeaux
It's not even necessarily a referendum on Gentry's system. It's not a waste, he puts up numbers. But it's not a great fit either. Which gets to something more basic about Evans/Holiday. You can give either guy the keys to your offense; great. Where exactly is that taking you? A 6-8 seed? Congrats, y...

re: According to Scott Kushner, Dell Demps to return next season - corndeaux
All of this points, again, to the guys at the top not really knowing what they are doing. Demps stays or goes, it won't really matter until they get their shite together. It is fascinating how they have chosen to run this franchise. I get that Benson is likely losing a decent chunk of money ...

re: Spin off: Should the pels look to trade Jrue? - corndeaux
Elhassan: Roster building isn't algebra. It's chemistry. Just adding a guy like Pondexter as a throwaway in a trade makes a big difference because his particular (and somewhat limited) skill set doesn't exist any where else on the team. The Pels have never been more than the sum of their parts...

re: DeMarcus Cousins anyone? - corndeaux
Dude will still get a good return, even with his warts. $16M and $18M over the next two years with $92M and $110M caps for one of the 15-20 best players in the league is worth the risk. If I'm Washington, send it all for Boogie. Wall/Boogie 2016 :usa:...

re: Spin off: Should the pels look to trade Jrue? - corndeaux
I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how much the cap is going to jump. Even at $20M next year and beyond, that is nowhere close to a max on a $108M cap. That said, giving Holiday $20+M with his injury history and this medical staff is somewhat risky. The injuries and his expirin...

Because they are afraid, rightly so, that they will re-sign Anderson because they couldn't "evaluate" this core. [quote]They would have really had to like a player in order to take on another longer contract[/quote] The alternative isn't necessarily a comparable, longer contract. Toronto, if t...
