He is making the same money as Wall, but at least Westbrook is an MVP candidate year in and year out. It is a monster contract, but not totally out of line with what the other top guys in the league are making (until that player option year at the end of the deal that pays him $47M).Who is going to take on Westbrook's deal? That is Wall-esque in it's horror. JG just keeps moving up the league scale. Great for him.
Paulie, with the exception of Robinson and Trier, I'm relying on you to update me on the Knicks roster this year -- it's impossible to be a fan of a team when you don't know who's playing from week to week.Tank in full effect...GREAT spot for Jerami, they are officially my adopted team until the Knicks can beat a G league squad
In terms of cap risk, the Knicks could afford it and he would be worth taking on that risk.The Knicks could do worse.
Yeah, Lydon is now a free agent who decided he was above playing in the Summer League this year:I thought Lydon's fate was sealed months ago when Denver didn't pick up the third year.
Reading the article it sounds like the agents decision and you hire an agent to judge the market. May or may not be good. Who knows.Yeah, Lydon is now a free agent who decided he was above playing in the Summer League this year:
Tyler Lydon, one of 5 former SU players embarking on free agency, feels ‘no need’ for Summer League
The Knicks don't have the assets to trade for Russell Westbrook until mid-December, when the free agents they just signed are eligible to be traded.In terms of cap risk, the Knicks could afford it and he would be worth taking on that risk.
The key thing would be for the Knicks not to mortgage the future in terms of a package of picks and young players to get him. Looking at the price it cost the Clips to get George, I doubts that would be the case.
So unless, the Knicks could get Westbrook on a salary dump basis, I would take a pass.
Kinda strange, Davis was too much risk because he only had one year left on his contract and Westbrook is too much risk because he has too many years left.
is there a sweet spot to get a superstar ???
