Rumor is that Kanter is going to be signed for one yeaar at $2.7M
According to Trade Machine we still havbe the $4.76M TPE from when we traded Kanter last year.
Wouldn't it be theoretically possible to talk Portland into doing a S&T for a highly protected second round pick or something so that we can then use Kanter's own TPE to trade for himself? Because if we could do that my admittedly simply mind would find that hilariously amusing and I would hapilly give Brad Stevens a pass for this year just for that alone haha
On a more serious note reports seem to suggest we will use part of the MLE to sign Kanter, but at $2.7M couldn't we use the Bi-Annual exception to sign him so that we still have the MLE available for somebody else? I don't recall us using the BIE last year, though I may be wrong.
