I am in no particular hurry to toss BIG MONEY at ANY Free Agents. 

I am sure that sounds retrograde dumb, but I would much rather keep our powder dry and have the cap space to take on contracts, faciliate trades, build up a stash of draft picks and be ready to pounce on bargains. 

Hey, remember when Ainge needed cap space to sign Kyrie Irving. 

And he jettisoned Thomas & Crowder & Olynik. 

Rose has surrounded himself with a different set of thinkers and coaches. 

I believe--LEAST WAYS, I HOPE--they are looking to be patient and opportunistic

I know Kiid views that as naive, but we have tried quick fixes and tossing money against the wall for 20-25 years.

Time to GET FUCKING SMART.

Chip - you are already a yes on three free agents

Van Vleet, Bogdanovic and Bertans

Likely 5 others if you are to be honest.

I am considering dropping this site after the election.

Anybody interested in taking on the moderator position if/when I go?

If so, drop me a PM letting me know why you'd want that joy-inducing power. Thanks.

Please donít do it.

I understand itís probably a lot of work for too few of us.

But some of us really enjoy this site, at least I know I do. And youíre itís creator. It would never be the same if someone else takes over.

Imagine if Chamaco Cartero becomes the moderator. Iíll probably be the first one banned from here. Unless you make him swear over Trumpís dead body that he wonít do that.

Now, seriously, PLEASE DONíT GO!

Carlos, Josh-who-created-Escape_from_Elba is not me. (Otherwise, I would have ADMIN powers and be all powerful... bwa ha ha ha!)

And once I hand over what meager power I have, I don't imagine a promise to me would be worth a damn no matter what he swore over...

Our founder has not been seen in these parts in years except for a postless visit about 15 months ago, I think. I know I haven't heard from him, even out of here, for quite a while.

Absolutely. 

If the price is right and we do not expend all of our cap space and flexibility like a drunken fucking sailor. 

Realistically? 

I think Van Vleet is loyal, happy and will take the max. 

I think Bertrans would be a nice pickup, as we are in need of a stretch four, but I suspect Washington is going to gin up the price. 

Bogdonavich? 

Now you're talking, especially if we don't take a wing like Vassell, whom I would prefer over Okoro. 

As for stretch fours, I'm good with Knox spending some time at the 3 & the 4. 

Finally, I've seen some projections where Toppin might fall to us. 

Yeah, yeah, yeah, his defense.  Catch your breath, BoD. 

The kid is an offensive force with stretch 4 range and a power forward body.

Iím on board with letting teams park players we can use at salaries they canít bear on our books and using the change for a free agent or two.

Conely + 23 for DSJ or Payton + 38

They shave 25 mil at least off of Conely, get a look at someone they might go forward with, and a prospect they have to pay less in an uncertain draft.

Has only short term repercussions for us. In all ways but financial, to the good.

Nah - he got the "keys" to the ship and the name.

I have so much less than that. I get to be first mate who wonders where DPR has gotten himself off to, but keeps the ship cruising about.

What's the point of Toppin?
We already have a near 20 & 10 PF who plays poor D.
So then you need to move Randle.
While both Randle and Toppin seem like they can only play one position.


I think we need to land a top FA, hit on the draft and try to make a trade splash.

FA:
I'd make a big offer to Capt Van Vleet -- up to $22M a year.
If that fails, I'd try for Bogdanovic @ ~ $18M

Draft:
Vassal; Halliburton.  Hayes or Okongwu if available.
#27 pick -- Kira, Malachi, Tre Jones or Saddiq Bey

Add in FVV + Vassell and our shooting and D improves.  And we'd have a lead guard.  Sure I overpay for that.

Add FVV and Halliburton and our G play improves greatly, better ballhandling and passing and shooting.

Add Bodgan and Vassell/TyH -- shooting and ballhandling upgrade

Trade:
Randle + Knox + Jr. Smith can all go.  Franc too.  Along with anyone whose option we could pick up.  And for the right player I'd also move RJB or Mitch.

Iíd do something similar for DeRozan and the Spurs #11 pick.
