“I got a chance to play with him in open gym, and I was shocked a little bit,” Burke said Monday at media day at the MSG Training Center. “His ability to just get a rebound off of the rim, just go right back up and just dunk it, it reminded me of like a young — and this is high praise — it reminded me of like a young Shaquille O’Neal, just skinnier.

“Me seeing a rookie do that, I was like, man, this kid can be great.”

NBA ordered immediate drug testing for Burke.

I dont have a problem with folks calling THJ an overpay

As long as they realise he wouldnt be on the roster otherwise.

Baker was an organizational "we like this guy" keep.

But how would we replace Tim's 31% distance shooting?
Actually, you offer Tim a $15M starting salary, and ATL might not match that either, so he might be on the Knix at a $2M savings.
But at least with Tim, it's understandable that you overpay for an RFA (and a starter).  That's how you get your target.  Too low, and it's matched.  And the hope is that Tim Jr. grows into his contract.

But with Baker, we were bidding against ourselves.
2/$4M or 2/$5M should have been fine.  Or at a higher amount
a 2nd year team option.

These weren't huge overpays or big blunders, but if you save $2M on each, you have an extra $4M with which to pay another player or add to cap space.

I take that back on Pat Cummings.  He gave a solid effort every night.  It wasn't his fault he was asked to be our starting C -- which is what I hated.

Eddy Curry, Jerome James and Pat Cummings were runners-up.

Most of what you credit him with seems like it was already around.
Jason Williams, Rafer Alston, Iverson, etc.
I don't recall Craw doing a backboard self-pass.  I do remember McGrady making it a thing.

What I will give Craw credit for is being an integral part of the Seattle area hoops network, where guys really look after each other.  Some recent rook said he stayed over at Craw's house a bunch during a high school Summer.  Fultz, maybe?

How can you forget the pass off the backboard....

Reminder: if we stretch Noah and strike out in 2019 FA pursuit, we can pay off the remainder of his salary that year and have no lingering cap hit. This may also be something we can exceed the cap and tax thresholds to do.

We do need the roster spot. Bye bye JoNo.

This is not my understanding of the rule, and I've checked the CBA. The reason I think it is dumb to waive Noah is precisely because we are stuck with the lingering cap hit. If you understand it differently, please share a link with an explanation (I certainly could be wrong).
