    Im thinking about this whole Danuel House negotiation.

    It seems that one of the reasons it hasn't been resolved yet is due to the fact that we want to stay flexible to pursue buyouts .

    Now , I don't have a very high opinion of the players you can generally get in the buyout market

    But , I also don't follow other teams very much .... so I actually don't have a strong idea of who is likely to be available .

    So , I'll ask my CF bretheren . Who are some guys that are likely to be bought out ? Who are some guys that we can fill in for the mystery player we are saving our flexibility for ?

    Because I would really rather have HOUSE right now than wait to sign some mediocre veteran with that portion of the MLE .

    So , anyone can help cheer me up and name some players that are likely to be available?

    I guess the other reason we are waiting is to try to use House in trades ? Makes sense , but it seems kinda shitty to sign a houston kid to a 2-way contract , have him play great for his hometown team where he wants to stay , and leverage his contract into a tradeable asset .

    Not that I disagree but what's the likelihood he gets bought out ?

    The nets are over 500 and he plays 25 mpg for them

    Was hoping we could get Carroll, especially after his injury, but he didn't miss a beat and is playing well for a team with a great shot at the playoffs in a weak East. Not a buyout, but the Pacer's Thad Young....

    Players likely to get bought out imo:

    Lin
    Vince Carter
    Alec Burks
    Frye
    Mack
    Casspi
    Jamaal Crawford
    Z.Bo

    Players that could still get a buy out if they don't get traded and/or their team will fall quickly in the standings in the next weeks (see the Nets, Pistons, Pelicans etc):

    Dedmon
    Carroll
    Dudley
    Robin Lopez
    Rodney Hood
    Ish Smith
    Calderon
    Ellington
    Hezonja
    Burke
    Ross
    Jeff Green
    Ariza
    Matthews
    DeAndre
    Isaiah Thomas
    Gortat
    Beasley
    Temple
    Tim Frazier
    Darius Miller
    Wes Johnson
    Bender
    Koufos
    Shumpert

    Probably forgot some names but, yeah...

    Shumpert isn’t getting bought out. Kings are in playoff persuit and he’s a key piece for them.

    Shump or Temple but I believe that Temple won't be bought out until they trade Marc or Conley, IMO

    Wing players I like to see: Ellington, J. Green, Matthews. (Maybe Shumpert/Temple)
    If we need another big men, I wouldn't mind Robin Lopez if he can hit threes for us.

    Temple is a possibility. However, the Kings aren’t buying out Shumpert, and I doubt the Knicks would consider buying out Lee until next season.

    I like those names too, seems like Lopez would join the Warriors if bought out though...so, i hope the Bulls trade him or keep him if that's true.
