Tatum just got a 5 yr $195 extension from Boston 

think about that when you whine about haywoods deal....and bringing in a superstar free agent to Charlotte 

That’s only 9 million a year more for Tatum than Hayward. And it’s a year longer contract for a younger and better player. Boston got a better deal.

If we do indeed stretch waive Batum, its actually the exact same amount for the next 3 years.  But as many have said, perhaps 30M+ is the premium that must be paid to get lesser stars to come to Charlotte, period.

Well yeah..

Would I rather have Tatum for $39mil -OR- Hayward for $30mil - obviously I go with the Tatum option.

But would I rather have Hayward at $30mil -OR- Batum decaying on the bench with the hopes we can throw $30mil @ year at someone else next year and they accept it.. i think I take Hayward.. it is all about if you believe we could get a star in FA next year or hope we get a star in next year's draft.. it's a roll of the dice and playing the odds.. the odds are much higher in our favor with Hayward, i believe.. if you argue the odds are better that we let Batum expire and we try in FA or stink enough to get a good draft pick - I won't knock you - I think it could be amazing.. but it could land us with MKG 2.0 and 8 more years of irrelevancy..

That is my thought as well.  We can have all the cap in the world but a top 10 player in the NBA isn't signing here in FA as it stand now, if ever.

That said...we needed a wing scorer and Hayward could be great in that role.  This dude has to stay healthy or we are screwed.  I wouldn’t have done this but the folks saying we barely make the playoffs is premature IMO.  Miami just played for the ship and they were far from a juggernaut
