Why do you assume he sucks? He's a 4th round pick from last year taken around the same time Tre was. If he can make contributions like Tre did last season (granted, he wasnt perfect, but he made some plays) would you not take that for this receiving group? The reason we make the trade is because we are too far down the waiver wire to pick him up when he gets released. And again, if he sucks, we give up nothing and it's like it never happened.
Well that's the problem. The defense just dominated and they're still losing because the offense is that inept. We've done these mental gymnastics since 2011. Panthers should be dominating this game, regardless of the names on the other sideline.
Well again, with Curry, he's not thinking about free agency because it's not time for him to think about free agency. When the time comes, he will begin to think about free agency, and the NBA landscape could look very different in two or three years, and that includes the Warriors. Apologies for the rudeness, I just get sick of folks always claiming "overpay" every time a contract is handed out. Given the market set this offseason, this is a great deal for a player who already impacts the game for this team and has a ton of room to improve. You'll take that guy on a second contract any time. Also, as has been documented on here before, the franchise has not been successful because they cannot draft well at all and can't catch a break in the lottery (Fun fact: since 2004, Charlotte's lottery pick has never jumped up, only stayed the same as the odds or fallen.) Cap management has actually been one of the strong points of the franchise.
I'm sorry, but nothing in this post is close to being correct... 1. As far as Steph goes, he said he's not thinking about free agency right now. And why would he when he has a few years left? 2. You clearly don't understand how the NBA free agency market works, because 4/52 is about the going rate for a wing player these days. With MKG's improvement to go along with how much he already impacts the game, he could be ready to cash in on a max deal at the end of this deal. 3. MKG is the reason this team wins more than 15 games a year, not the other way around. Also, this isn't the NFL. Any GM can easily turn over a roster overnight to accommodate any acquisition they'd like to make. If a star expresses interest, you make it happen. Look at the Cavs' payroll as evidence.
In a market that just saw DeMarre Carroll get 4/60, this is a steal. Only going to get better, and easily the most impactful player on the squad. With less future cap space to work with, I wonder if we'll start seeing some more trading from Cho and company. Some tough decisions need to be made now.
