Okafor got the minimum. The only thing he's costing is a roster spot (which still feels like too much).
More likely paying him 30 to stand in a corner while Ball goes 10-29 every night
I couldn’t find a number. I actually think that’s a decent deal, except for how buried he is behind your 9 other bigs
that might be worse than the Westbrook contract.
Charlotte has to move one of Zeller, Batum or Rozier now, right? They're $10M short of the space needed to sign Hayward for that.
At least Orlando resigned to their fate of only making the play in game and only spent on cheap bums
I like it!
Looks like opting out was the right decision
The second part of this is vintage Russillo (ZeroPointZero)
Bradley used to be a really nice 3 and D player - injuries derail him? He opted out of the bubble, if I remember?
Getting him is huge for defense
He's been coasting on rep for a while. His teams have had better numbers with him off the floor like four years in a row
I feel like since Jordan did it my hayward argument despite being technically wrong is still right in spirit
We’re gonna fix that right up.
I know this rarely happens but I’m living the dream that we got 2016 Bradley for 6mil/yr
I mean yeah, the opportunity cost is minimal and he's insurance if Nunn has turned back into a pumpkin for good. It's too low risk to ever be considered a bad move, i just doubt it's an obvious plus for Miami.
Great signing by Phoenix
"technically wrong" is one way of putting it. The man opted out of $34M and got $120M over 4 years.
This starting to get really annoying, liking all the moves my team makes in an offseason. Crowder is such a great fit to either push Cam as the starter/crunch time 4 or getting a ton of shots with the sub unit. Something indefensibly stupid needs to happen soon so I can feel normal
Bridges over Saric but yeah, pretty solid crunch time 5
Bridges > Crowder and Saric. Johnson > Saric probably, too
oh yea forgot about him. A lot of different wing options is nice
Good for crowder
We weren’t giving him or anyone a 3 year deal
thank you for agreeing with me
i'm somewhat surprised at the reaction to hayward's deal. hayward is charlotte's best avenue to getting better and i dont really know what their path for improving is outside of signing him. flip batum's contract + something else for a disgruntled star on an expiring deal? who else could they spend cap space on that's as good as hayward?
i know i'm more bullish on hayward's abilities than others here - i remember Hayward trade proposals by MG2 a few weeks back - but he's instantly charlotte's best player and makes life easier for ball, washington, bridges, and whomever else they'll keep (i assume they'll trade one of rozier or graham).
4 years fully-guaranteed is a big commitment for someone who hasnt been healthy and is on the older side of prime age but the money wasn't going to be used any better imo.
edit - stretching batum because you gave hayward more money than you had is really bad and dumb. but the initial reactions were naive to the fact that charlotte didn't have $30M in space so that's what my reaction is towards.
I don’t see how the Warriors make the playoffs without Klay
Suns and Pelicans got better. Blazers got better and healthier. Grizzlies stayed the same.
Not forming an opinion on the Hayward deal until I know how much it screws Boston
Love Jae. Forgot how to shoot in the Finals but was really good otherwise
THEY ARE GONNA STRETCH OUT BATUM’S DEAL LMBO
So Hayward is actually costing Charlotte $147M over the next 4 years (when you add in the Batum buyout).
That is a deeply upsetting series of transactions
Feel like Batum in Miami is a really good fit
you are a fucking idiot
NBA Twitter: Troy Weaver is the worst GM
TIL Batum is only 31 years old. Lmao.
