Sam Amick: "Kemba More Likely To Leave Than Stay"

What if Jordon were to commit to pay luxury tax?

Im thinking if he wanted to do that for say 1 year 
as 45m opens up with the expiring of marv, mkg, biz at end of next season 19/20.
Keep it mind Willy and Bacon also expire at 19/20 if they decide to resign them.

I’ve said this before, if we want to win with Kemba, we have to pay the luxury tax for at least long enough to move all our bad contracts and replace with younger guys and players worthy of more money. Otherwise we’ll just be resigned to rolling the dice in the draft over and over.

Might as well offer him the max.

The time to get rid of him was last year, and should’ve been tanking this season.

Like I said previously, but will restate. 

Kemba is amazing. It is a shame we couldn't surround him with better players. The Hornets actually tried many times but failed miserably. 

The time to trade Kemba was last year for a lotto pick. Now we either pay him big bucks or he walks away for nothing. Sign and trades are off the table because who are we gonna take back for $30m plus? 

So we are left with 2 options. 

A. Re-sign and hope our young guys develop and we can sneak in the playoffs around the 6-8 seed. Some years we make it and some we don't drafting around 12 again. 

B. Let him walk for nothing. The city and many fans would be upset. We roll out with the worst team in the league and hope we don't get shafted in the lottery and even if we don't get shafted hope our Front Office will make the right pick. We will suck really bad for the next 2-3 years. 

Which option do you all choose?

I would choose to keep him on a big contract but not a supermax contract.  See what we can get back for our expiring contracts, or just let them expire and then hope to improve the team significantly in league year 20/21.

I have been on the trade Kemba bandwagon for all of last year up to the trade deadline. I never truly wanted to but I thought that was the only way to finally get out of the treadmill. We could have a jump with a lotto pick last year and stink in a deep draft this year. But...

Now, we are in a situation to lose him for nothing and I am not as sure about trading him. 

Does anyone know how the 2020 draft is looking?

I've kind of settled on what Thelt has been suggesting...  I've vacillated back and forth between diehard loyalty and paying Kemba whatever it takes to keep him, to sign him and trade him, and now back to keep him at a sub-max/team-friendly deal...  the key in all scenarios to us turning it around though is hitting on our draft picks.
