Recommended Posts

Kemba made All NBA third team, so the money to keep him went up to 221m or 38 per season.

Ugh, no, just no. Love Kemba, but he is not a cornerstone piece. He would be a great 2nd or 3rd guy on a championship team.

They've got to at this point, just letting him walk for nothing would make them look foolish for turning down all the trades they were offered.

The more this unfolds, fug the PR hit.  Let him go.  Stay away from any Super Max deals IMO.  Ridiculous 

44 mil per for 5 years?  Naw man

Seriously...fug the NBA model right now.  Ludicrous

We should have traded him and tanked. 7-8 seed is only good for 1st round sweeps.

Look at giannis supermax deal, avg of nearly 50m a year. Last two years at 52m and 56m. 100% completely ridiculous.

Sadly, I think they will try to. I don't think Kemba will take it unless the team is majorly improved.

Here is a thought...make a run at D’Angelo Russell?  He will be expensive but 23 and had a great year.  Much cheaper than Kamba obviously.  The Nets would have to decide not to pay him but an option.

lol this is far from a given, just means we can now offer up to that much. All his selection does is give us more leverage to negotiate over other teams, who can still only offer 141. I'd think it'd be much more likely that we just go a little into the super max, maybe 190 or 195. Another possibility is trying to sign him for only 3 or 4 years so we're not stuck with the contract when he's 34. Our front office isn't the best, but they have a job for a reason... Surely they're not going to give the full 221/5 to a 29 year old 6 foot 1 point guard.. 

With all of this said, really happy for Kemba making the third team, huge career accomplishment. Well deserved.

Yeah, agreed. Except this year. When the Suns, Hawks, and Bulls all tried to tank and ended up out of the Top 3. So, they're all about to be screwed if they didn't scout properly.

They could've gave a 5/191 before this. He will see a bunch of that super Max if not all of it to stay in Charlotte. Team has already said it would do everything to keep him. That means offering him the supermax.

Ah forgot about that, thought it was closer to 180. 200 then maybe? 205? I don't entirely trust what the team has said publicly, shelling out that much money is a big commitment.

A big committment toward being mediocre. Pick 12 for years to come. We need a new direction and Kemba needs to play for a winner. He is in his prime right now.

    • FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — When a Saudi Air Force officer opened fire on his classmates at a naval base in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, he killed three, wounded eight and exposed anew the strange dynamic between President Trump and the Saudi leadership: The president’s first instinct was to tamp down any suggestion that the Saudi government needed to be held to account.   Mr. Trump was so quick and so eager to assure the Saudis that the relationship would continue before anyone knew how to categorize the shooting that it raised questions about how the administration would have responded if the suspect had been an Iranian, or an immigrant from Mexico. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Trump often cited the killing of a young woman in California by an undocumented immigrant as a reason to crack down on immigration and build a wall along the southern border. “Had an attack been carried out by any country on his Muslim ban, his reaction would have been very different,” said Aaron David Miller, a longtime Middle East negotiator and now a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “But when it comes to Saudi, the default position is to defend,” he said, “Driven by oil, money, weapons sales, a good deal of Saudi feting and flattery, Trump has created a virtually impenetrable zone of immunity for Saudi Arabia.”    Still, the bond between the countries is weakening, as the erosion of support in Congress shows. A negotiation over providing nuclear technology to the Saudis, a huge push early in the administration, has stalled. The chances that the military support will remain at current levels appear slim. “The U.S.-Saudi relationship is on life support,” Mr. Riedel said, noting that it would be in jeopardy if a Democrat were to win the 2020 election. “Even Joe Biden is calling the Kingdom a ‘pariah’ that needs to be punished,” he said, referring to the former vice president, who had for decades supported a strong relationship with the Saudis.
