Are We Trading for Marc Gasol?

Recommended Posts

Trading Biz, Frank, Bacon, and a 1st for Gasol

 

Puts us at 109.5 mil in Salaries when the cap is going to be 109

 

AND 

AND

We still have this guy named Kemba who is going to require a Max deal at around 30 mil a year

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

1. We aren't going to be able to sign anyone regardless of if this trade goes through or not. If the intent is to resign Kemba then he will be signed and we will have the MLE. Lamb will not be back regardless of whether or not this trade goes through; we don't have his bird rights and are already above the tax line.

2. This team will be the same no matter what happens trade wise. Lamb is gone as we won't have room for him no matter what (which is fine because Monk needs to stat) and hopefully we can convince Kemba to resign.

3. If this trade goes through hopefully he does leave because that will open up a bit of space to sign Lamb. With this team as is Lamb is gone.

4. If Kemba leaves then he leaves. The 18th pick in the draft isn't going to magically put us in better shape.

If this is really Biz, Frank, and a first rounder for Gasol and then Gasol opts out then we essentially traded the 18th pick to free up $25M in cap space.... aka... worth it!

Playoff revenue will help offset some of that.

Also paying the tax will be cheaper in the long run than losing Kemba Walker and the revenue he brings this franchise.

There is also a good chance to move Batum next year or the year after. So really one season of paying the tax to keep the franchise's most profitable player. Makes sense to me.

Whats the max we can go over paying the tax?

Because we will be around 30.5 mil Over

I've said this before, but the only way we take a step forward with Kemba is by walking through fire for a season above the tax line to keep him and another high powered player through a transition. We have to get another guy here and make it through another year to get closer to losing these shitty big contracts so we can rebuild with some actual cornerstones. It'll be a big help if Monk and Bridges turn into guys.

If some other guys like Lamb fall off because of it, then so be it. We won't be replacing Kemba any time soon. We gotta give him our best possible team and see what happens while he's in his prime.

I'm not exactly sure but it shouldn't be a big deal. the salary cap will be around 109 and the tax will be around 132 million. With Kemba re-signed we will only be a few million over the tax which isn't a big deal and will only be most likely for 1 season if that.

Saw a deal that makes sense cap wise.  Biz, Lamb and a protected 1st.  Salaries almost match exactly.  Bet that will be it.

I'd be surprised if we give up Lamb.

We have Howard's trade exception so Frank and Biz can actually get the deal done and unless Memphis has long term plans for Lamb then he holds no value to them.

True but he helps them cut like 7 mill in salary soon and they do get the pick.  I don’t love it but that one I think is very legit.

They may match for this season.  But Lambs is a expiring contract.  Would be  +aprox 7 mil for us next year

Even with Frank they would $7M cause Frank is an expiring as well. They would just save the difference between Biz and Gasol and pick up a first rounder.

Well, yeah that’s true.  Guess we will know soon enough.  I think the salaries have to be very close for us to make this deal.  Hence...Lamb now.
