Consider 10-12 of that money already gone for Kemba's new deal, that leaves the team 10-16 million depending on what they do with Hendo. MJ isn't going to go into Lux tax unless the team can compete to reach the finals.

We're going to be going over next year regardless, so we might as well spend to the limit and exercise Kemba's and possibly Biz's bird rights.

Oh and the luxury tax is supposed to be around $80 million for 2015. We will be over the cap but we aren't even going to be close to that number. My guess is $70 million if we address the power forward and shooting guard position.

I don't think Kemba is getting 10-12. He's more in the range of 8-10. If he wants more, then see ya.

The only way MKG is going to develop is if he's on the court.

 

Not true at all.

 

MKG's issue is with his jump shot.  That actually is easier and better to develop in the gym (at practice) than in the game.

 

Do you REALLY want a guy trying to develop a jump shot to do so by continuously taking jump shots in the game?  If you answer is yes, then God help you.

I think the price tag to trade for AA keeps going up. It seems everyone wants him.

Oh and to an earlier post in this thread, if we pay Kemba 10 mil per, somebody should be fired.

His jump shot is not even close to being the only part of the game that needs work. If you think it is... then God help you.

A huge issue with MKG is being able to defend without fouling, that is an aspect of the game that can only be learned through play.

Confidence and consistency are a few more issues that he needs to work on and once again the best place to solve those two issues is through playing.

Exactly.

There's no way MKG won't be able to develop coming off the bench. Especially behind a defensive player like himself in Luol Deng. MKG should be blessed to get to learn from a guy like Deng.

MKG has at least two more years until he'll grow into himself as a complete player. The best thing for him right now is to come off the bench and just be a defensive presence atm. Keep shooting 1000 balls everyday in practice.

I send #9 for Afflalo every day and twice on Sunday.

 

 

Especially if the rumor of us drafting McBuckets is true. Though, for the record, I think McBuckets will be a decent role guy. But that's the point...would I rather have a decent role guy for the next 10 years, or a borderline All-Star for the next couple, followed by a decent role guy for the next 5. Also remember, there is ZERO shooting guard depth in the league. We'd be getting a Top 5-ish SG instead of rolling the dice.

 

PG - Kemba

SG - Afflalo

SF - MKG

PF - Zeller/McBob

C - Al

 

Pick 24, and cap room for a decent FA, if only a rental for a year or two. Depending on how the FA dominoes fall, that could be a team with home court advantage in the pitiful East next year. Bring in Deng for instance, a fantastic locker room guy/person who could help MKG while also playing at borderline All-Star levels. A core of Kemba, Afflalo, Deng, and Big Al in the East? Young pieces in MKG/Zeller? That sounds pretty decent.
