Are We Trading for Marc Gasol?

Tanking is the definition of an unprofessional front office.  You have this all backwards.

Your opinion, but it is the ONLY way this franchise will build a contender. FAs are not coming here anytime soon. Again, we will have to agree to disagree. Rinse and repeat.

FA's would come here in a heartbeat if we had a Zion or Barrett type of player. LOL.

So, moral victories instead of building a legitimate contender? A rental on a few 4th or 5th finishes in the east for a few years, then a rebuild? Just postponing the inevitable. I guess I just expect too much of a professional organization. It is what it is though, none of us are controlling this crap show.

yep.. you are expecting too much, IMO
no one outside of Houston can even sniff a chance at a ring right now.. this is the league

so all we have are moral victories.. this franchise isnt going from a hopeful playoff 8th seed to the Finals.. you'd be silly to think that.. i'd be happy with Toronto or Portland's resume at this point.. a lock playoff lock every year with the chance to make a key move (Kawhi) that would put them over the top and contend for a title..

now - i agree wit hthe crux of what some on here are saying.. Gasol is old and playing a position that doesnt lend itself to old players.. but he still is FAR and away better than anyone we have had since Big AL.. and look what we were able to do with him - 2 outta 3 years in the playoffs.. and almost a 1st round upset over Miami..

 

btw - if we make this move without throwing in a 1st rounder or Monk/Bridges - i will cream my shorts

Sign me up for Biz, Frank, our first rounder, and however many seconds are needed to get it done.

DeAndre Hunter or whoever we would take with that first isn't going to keep Kemba here and additionally we have so many undeveloped young players on this roster in Monk, Bridges, Graham, Bacon, and Hernagomez (who Enes Kanter compared to a young Marc Gasol) that adding another is going to be pointless. These young guys we have now need to step up along with the addition of some solid veterans.

we need to make a move for an allstar-fringe-type player.. we need to show Kemba we are serious about winning.. if throwing in a 1st rounder gets us rid of Biz's contract and nets us Gasol - we do it..

stop bitching about the garbage rookie player with hidden potential that turns out to be a bench role player after we hang on for 4-5 years..

Again unless they plan on taking Batum.  Itd be terrible.

 

Unless im just missing something.  

We're already Super tight in cap space.  Taking on his contract OnTop of Batums contract.  Its going to be real tight and tough to squeeze in a Max deal for Kemba. 

And if we do, we aren't going to be able

1. Resign anyone worthwhile

2. Resign guys like Lamb.

So next years squad would be the exact same team minus the guys traded and minus the Lambs who, any idea of resigning them are out the window

 

 

 

 

 

PLUS...........he has the option to opt out of his deal at the end of the year.  So if He isnt happy here.  We just traded away a 1st And option of resigning guys like Lamb for a short rental 

https://www.spotrac.com/nba/memphis-grizzlies/marc-gasol-6122/

 

Im all for and Wanting to build around Kemba and want another star.  But with the shotty cap situation Cho put us in.  Adding him will be a financial nightmare ontop of losing a key guy or 2

We will have around 80 million in our cap tied to Batum (25), Gasol (25), Marvin (15), Zeller (14).  And next years NBA cap will be 109 mil.  With our star player hitting FA and going to require a max deal (30+a year)   The numbers just dont add up

I must just not understand NBA FA and dont realize there is a magic pot of $$ laying around 

 

 

Also, 

Say Kemba decides to Join Durant in NY, Gasol ends up opting oit this summer when that happens.  AND we dont have a 1st rounder.

You think our qorst seasons as a Bobcat were bad.  Be prepared of scouting a top 2 pick for the following season

Gasol is good

But is older

And 2, has a big contract.  So just even less space going forward in trying to resign Kemba, and any shot at resigning Lamb.

Plus mortgaging a 1st, when some are saying. This is going to be one of the better draft classes.

Thatd be too steep.

Taking Batum along with with to alleviate cap space would be worth the 1st

I'd expect nothing less from this dumbass organization

Playing minutes tonight aren't really giving anything away..

Frank and Billy aren't playing much.. But any big contract that could be in the deal is..

Biz getting minutes so is Cody, Marvin and the French trash.. Lamb is killing it  right now.. So I don't know who is in this trade..

It isn't that hard to comprehend. Losing Kemba will cost MJ more money than paying some players / Kemba to stay and play in Charlotte. We need to make a move to help secure our spot in the playoffs and make Kemba Happy.

Making it to the second round would be like a Championship for this team. A southeast division title would be nice as well. As long as the Warrior's core are still together no one is winning a damn thing. Philly tanked for years and although they have a good team, they aren't winning anything anytime soon either.

Sorry I am not trying to suck for the next 5+ years hoping to get lucky trying to even become a playoff team again. I would love to see how pissed everyone would be if we lost out on an AD type player again because we sucked so hard and still got fuged out of the number one pick.
