    Marc Stein, back to working for Dallas.



    Not only does Matthews make just under $18 million this season, he has a player option (which is death to cap managers) for next season at close to $19 million.

    I can't see anyone giving them a first round pick for taking that contract on without giving back a worse contract (longer salary commitment).

    Lol. When Mavs thought Matthews, Parsons, Jordan (b4 he bailed) was the future of that team.

    They have a long way to go.

    There's a new book coming out: How to Completely Butcher a Championship Team by Mark Cuban. Should be an insightful read.

    They can get a first.
    For example a 2021 top 15 protected first rounder + Deng or Noah.
    When he opts in he will still be an expiring so the Knicks/Lakers won't have that much trouble getting rid of him then.

    Is there even a market for him? No mention if any team would be willing to sniff at Wesley.

    And Donald Trump wants Mexico to pay for the wall but we don't always get our silly fantasies to come true.

    Yes definitely. There's always a market.
    Bad contract for Worse longer contract + first.
    He will be expiring anyway next season it's not a bad deal for a team that wants desperately to clear capspace.

    We should be rooting for Cuban to get that team now that we're thinking back. And Nerlens Noel signing for that near-max contract offer. Harrison Barnes eating cap space as well. That team is set for years to fight for the 8th seed.

    This is like shopping in Shenzhen.

    The price starts at $150.00 but ends up $25.00.
