I'm sure Kyrie will get a max offer regardless. If this deal happens, probably means more for rozier, morris, and others on the fringes.
what does this deal mean for cap situation next season and how much Irving can get?
These questions are best asked after a new deal is signed.
Yeah, for some reason I read Rozier and not Kyrie when responding to his question. Barring something unlikely, the Celtics will give Kyrie a max offer. Whether he accepts that offer or not will probably affect Rozier the most.
I think Ainge hedges and holds onto Rozier as insurance in case Irving bolts. If thatís the case, we resign Terry at a pretty high number.
If Irving resigns at the max, we have to let Terry walk for nothing (unless we can facilitate a S&T, but those usually donít come to fruition).
In an ideal world, since Smart is staying put, we would trade Terry for someone with more years left who can help us. But with Irvingís situation uncertain, weíve got to keep TRIII.
