I still think he stays in Toronto.
Same. My predictions are, KD to Clippers, Kawhi stays, Klay stays.
The two intriguing questions to me is if PHI actually maxes BOTH Butler + Harris, and then obviously does Kyrie stay. Also curious to see where Cousins lands next and what his next deal looks like. Will be a hectic summer for sure.
decent chance he signs with the lakers on a bloated 1 year contract
I don't think Cousins signs a short term deal unless he has an injury set back
My predictions for the elite FAs
As long as the Cs play well in the playoffs I think Irving stays, if Irving stays I think Durant stays in GS. If the Cs get knocked out early then Irving looks to leave for a team that can get him AD or Durant. I would say the Knicks but I cant imagine any player/agent wanting to put to much faith in Dolan.If Cs make it to the EFC and play well then I predict
Durant and Klay stay
get Leonard and Butler
get Cousins and Walker (then try to trade D Smith and Pick for AD)
are left at the alter for FAs and will either have to settle for guys from the 2nd and 3rd tier guys on huge 1 year deals and making a push to trade for Beal. Then they will wait it out for AD as a FA. Maybe something like their pick this year Kuzma and Hart for Beal, then sign D Jordan to a huge 1 yr deal. If the Cs struggle in the playoffs all bets are off. If their struggles mean the Raptors make the Finals then I think..
Leonard stay in Toronto
get Irving and Durant (cant see them joining Dolan)Knicks
get Butler and Cousins
