I put Rudy Gay up there with Jeff Green. Just existing in the NBA to get a paycheck.

Eh, the injuries to Rudy Gay in the past would scare me. But he's still a solid player that can score 12-15 PPG, or come off the bench as a sixth man candidate. He's going to certainly get some offers.

Wonder if Danny Green’s next with his 10M option

This is the first domino.  This puts the Spurs at 90M heading into next year, assuming Green opts in, with a projected cap of 108.  He knows Kawhi is gone.  He can still get still get 8.8M on the open market.  This opens up the possibility of signing on a super team at a discount.  It could also allow SA to absorb salary in a deal.  Tons of flexibility for the 3-team, Kawhi to the Lakers deal that's coming.

I don't think he wants to be there for another season without Kawhi.

Can't blame him at this point of his career.

An alternative way to look at it is if the Spurs can move Gasol, they’re entering LeBron territory for cap room.  Maybe LeBron and Kawhi team up in San Antonio, with Gay having opted out so he can rejoin them later as a Spur.

Highly unlikely, but not out of the realm of possibility.  The Spurs have often been mentioned as a potential LeBron destination.

kawhi isn't staying in SA. Kawhi hates pop and lebron can't be coached

Trying to imagine Pop and LeBron having a polite difference of opinion on play selection...

Yeah and he gave up I think an 8M option. I doubt he can get that from anyone as a free agent.

This should probably be a separate thread/poll, but I wonder as to how many, if any, people would prefer to have Rudy Gay over Marcus Morris.

At the same salary, hopefully no one.
