With the NBA Draft up front, it is rumored that the Cleveland Cavaliers are adding the fourth pick of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Confronted with the biggest low season in franchise history, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman is working hard until the NBA Draft.
The best Cavs basketball player, who has not been at work for a year, is talking to the Memphis Grizzlies about a trade for the No. 4 overall pick. However, an agreement will come with luggage, with the Cavaliers baduming the two years and $ 49 million remaining in the Chandler Parsons contract, according to Sam Amico of Amico Hoops.
Amico wrote to Mike Conley, who must win a total of $ 95 million over the next three seasons, he could also be involved in the alls since the Grizzlies are looking to lose their salary.
1. The Grizzlies would have to face some Cavaliers to earn money, so automatically, Kevin Love, JR Smith, Tristan Thompson and George Hill will become commercial candidates.
Obviously, Memphis is going to rebuild, I'm not sure how to rid myself of the fourth election in an attempt to lose the salary, it helps them do that.
2. Smith's contract is valuable here. While he will earn $ 14 million next season, only $ 3.8 million of his salary is guaranteed the following year. Parsons will win $ 25 million next season. The Cavs would have to change someone else to make the money match.
3. Smith's contract is the only "easy way out", which means that Love, Thompson and Hill are under contract for at least two more seasons,
4. Yes, the Cavs have reviewed the trade negotiations for Kemba Walker. Would they negotiate the eighth pick, baduming they got the No. 4 pick, for the Hornets' point guard?
5. Altman is working without any idea of what LeBron James will do in free agency. It is not surprise here. The game of free agency triumphs over the game within the lines, and like the real games, James excels in winning the battle off the court as well.
6. Is anyone excited about Kemba Walker on a team without LeBron James? Initially, my answer would be "No, thanks."
Walker has not exactly elevated the status of Michael Jordan's Charlotte Hornets.
However, it seems that the Cavs will not press "exploit" button if James leaves.
Neither will be contenders in the Finals, but if they somehow achieve the fourth and eighth choice to play alongside veterans like Hill, Thompson and Larry Nance, they will develop their young stars. just in time for their current heavy contracts to expire.
And then, who knows? Maybe James says: "I'm staying."
7. A lot of "yes" but none of that matters because the most important part of the future of the Cavs is not based on the next decision of James. Start with the NBA Draft and we will have a better idea of the future of Cleveland after this week.
