If we give him a contract in the 10-12 million range at 4-5 years fine but if it is a 15+ million dollar a year deal then it is terrible.
Also to the people saying we will have three picks next year and can trade up for one of the great players no we can't. It is way more likely we end up with zero picks than three. So let us win 35-40 games miss the biggest draft in the past decade just so we can be an ok team for a couple years until they blow it up again and rebuild.
And to the people saying bringing Al won't stop us sucking why pay him big money? I get trying to be respectful but you shouldn't waste assets(cap space that can be used down the line) if it doesn't make you instantly better.
We can play the what if game all day long.
What if those guys(Wiggins, Parker, etc..) dont end up being as good as we possibly thought they would be?
What if we suck and get shafted again in the draft?
We could easily not sign anyone, win 10-15 games, get the #1 pick, select Wiggins, and go on to win an NBA title.
We could also win 10-15 games, get shafted again, not get Wiggins or Parker, and we are sitting right back at where we are now with a better player on the wing and a lack of a big man.
Sign Jefferson. Inside game is set. I think Jamison will sign on as well. Go into this season with...
Kemba - Sessions
Henderson - Gordon
MKG - Taylor
Zeller- Jamison - Thomas
Jefferson - Biyombo - Haywood
If we dont get Wiggins or Parker, use the rest of the money/draft picks, to trade for a star on the wing. Missing out on Wiggins or Parker ISNT the end of the world.
