Tell me why we don't do this...

Recommended Posts

OKC is looking to unload Melo's massive contract (about $28m) and they know they will get nothing of real use back..

Charlotte gets Melo ($28m) = OKC gets Marvin + MKG ($27m)
Thoughts? Would either of us pull the trigger on this? We create cap space for next year's FA class instantly and help OKC out in the process.
I might be too fugged up rite now to realize why this shudn't happen..

PG - Kemba - Parker
SG - Lamb - Monk
SF - Batum - Bacon
PF - Melo - Frank
C - Zeller - Biz

Why would OKC do that?  The whole purpose of getting rid of Melo is getting rid of that salary so they can avoid the luxury tax.

Not only would OKC not be getting the luxury tax relief that they desire, but MKG and Marvin are on that books for $30M until 2019/20 while Melo's deal comes off 2018/19.

So not only do they end up in the luxury tax this year but potentially next year as well and they would also have $30M tied up in two average players when they would much rather have that $30M to offer a max to someone else.

Plus, Carmelo is on his last tour. He'll end up in Houston on an MLE with a chance to win a ring.

Bc even though MJ is an idiot of an owner, hes smart enough to know that Melo is a team killer and ball stopper. 

We actually agree on something...this guy is poison
