    Jazz are finding a right trade for Rudy because of Rudy contract situation. Knicks have money to sign him .....
    Comparing to Drummond, Rudy has more trade value. Rudy is older than Drummond.

    Is this biggest contract extension ever?
    Westbrook is 233 million extension
    Harden is 228 million extension
    One poster wants Morey to get Rudy. Salary would work if Tucker and Gordon for Rudy.

    How about Powell and Hardaway for Rudy? Mark Cuban would do it.
    Hardaway is likely to opt in.

    Zero interest in Gobert at anything remotely close to his contract.

    The Zach Lowe’s of the world can keep saying how great a defender he is all they want. He is an extremely easy to exploit player on both sides of the court for teams willing to do it.

    I agree.

    I'd take him at a Clint Cappela contract....

    Anyone who signs him to a contract remotely that close to the # in the thread title is insane.

    Knicks already have Mitchell Robinson, who's a pretty good 5. And his rookie contract is 5 million spread out over the next 3 years, if my math is right. Dude is a Gobert in the making, already. No reason to go out and get another one.

    Meanwhile, Gobert?

    - Extremely limited
    - Has perhaps already peaked, in terms of production. I don't see a breakout season for him, on offense.
    - Fractured relationship with Donovan Mitchell, the most valuable Jazz player.

    He plays like a 37 year old Tyson Chandler. Whoever pays him that much is a dumbass.

    I am aware of it. They can deal Robinson and this year pick for another star like Ingram, Simmons, Beal ....

    According to ESPN Bobby Marks, his max is 247.3 million,

    I think his current value is about 4 years 120 million.

    i wouldn't even give tucker straight up for rudy if that were possible. or gordon.

    paying a lot of money for gobert will never win you a championship unless its a team that's going waaay over the salary cap with all stars at a lot of positions like the warriors dynasty...he is perfect for a small market team to get them to the playoffs.

    the days of non shooting centers getting overpaid are over IMO.

    Individual defenders are overrated.

    The Pistons were about team defense.

    You prolly need a pretty good rebounder and a cerebral defender in the Battier, Draymond, PJ range.

    A modern Rodman would be too enticing to throw money at though.

    That's an absurd price value for him.
    Just say no! Stay off the drugs tainting your logic.

    Utah would be foolish to take on Powell. The injury liabilities are too risky after Powell and Achilles. Rudy gobert is too valuable.

    Utah does not necessarily need hardaway when they already have Clarkson off the bench.



    Maybe Utah might deport gobert for reasons bigger than basketball like Texans did Hopkins...idk?
