2019 FA Kristaps Porzingis

#1
Pipe dream because I fully expect NY to extend him....however he is a RFA who has been out a year after the ACL tear and NY may be trying to throw a max deal at someone like Durant etc, so the Kings May be in a position, if his knee checks out, to put the squeeze on NY and offer up a max deal. Where it gets murky is that they just used the stretch provision when they waived Noah which saved roughly 13mil....so not sure if they now have the ability to give 2 max deals.

I was totally surprised how fast he became a good NBA player before the injury. There's a lot riding on that ACL injury, I would love to have him if healthy and can play without compromising Marvin's game.

I have no idea what you are saying. They have bird rights, they can pay him whatever they want. He’s getting the max, period.
I was disagreeing with your assertion that going after a RFA would require a S&T...but it may have just been my misunderstanding. And yes you are right they do have his bird rights, so if they opt to match any deal, then a trade would be the only way to get him

As much as I would love for Latvian bball player to wear Sacramento Kings, this is a pipe dream.

Kings needed to draft other Latvian Rodions Kurucs in the 2nd round, he is such a steal for the Nets who can guard every position, Andrei Kirilenko version 2.0

I never said a word about a S&T. You mentioned Lavine and a S&T and had no idea what you were trying to say.

Porzingis in unobtainable. He will be a Knick. There is not a package anyone would offer that they would accept.

Just lock it up. I created it thinking there might be a slight possibility they wouldnt match max offers, but I completely blanked on the bird rights. So while there is a minescule possibility they don’t match and he can be signed outright, that is just not really feasible

Ah ok, I actually just conceded that I may have misunderstood and that I blanked on the bird rights and you still want to be a putz about it. What was said was “it would have to be a trade” . I said no it wouldn’t...and if you want to get technical about it, if they don’t match a max offer, then guess what it won’t require a trade

I dont think anybody asked you but ok.


What is your major beef with Bagley? You just really dont like him at all do you?
I’m pretty sure the question was asked to everyone.

And if you think trading Bagley for Porzingis is having beef with Bagley than I don’t know what to tell you. No GM is trading Porzingis for Bagley
