you're kidding right?
so the Spurs get 3 starter-quality players, including an all-star, while giving up a couple of overrated players in Derozan and Gay to clear their roster while C's get back an underperforming kid with a malcontent father and a non-all star PG?
why would this even be proposed?
To free major salary, force stevens to play Thompson and Timelord, bring in a very good prospect in Murray who better fits team needs at point and add more youth.
I think you are really undervaluing Murray, a 23 year old PG with size, speed, good offense and excellent defense.
Team would have a 5 mill TPE, a 28 mill tpe and a 16 mill TPE to add more pieces.
you value a small TPE and a decent PG prospect and unproven young big over a proven all-star PG and a proven big man that currently start for us AND you think you can force Brad to play who YOU want to see by giving away good players that have earned their time?
You do know that just because Danny has a TPE at his disposal it doesn't mean it's going to be used, right? if a player worth paying that kind of money isn't available, it's not going to be used.
16 million is not a small TPE, its salary savings that allows team to use the FULL Hayward TPE of 28.5 million.
Kemba has alot of flaws, alot. Looking solely at him as some arbitrary "allstar" PG is shot sighted.
Murray is far more than a decent prospect
Timelord and to a lesser extent Thompson, are both better than Theis.
And Danny needs to use the TPE or else he just gave away multiple picks for nothing. If he does not use the TPE it is a fire-able offense.
