    Even though Reeves is not a true point guard if we were to sign him, I would feel pretty comfortable him starting alongside Green or Porter.

    Second year as a player option so he can explore free agency again next season as a 29 year old?

    Heck, I'd love to get Reaves. I'm assuming it's not possible.

    Upping the rockets offer to 3yrs probably gets the deal done

    Stone is going to end up overpaying hard for FVV. 3-4 years likely at this point.

    They shouldn't do that unless the third year is a player option on team-friendly dollars ($20M or so). We don't want to be stuck with him if Amen is breaking out big time and looking like a future superstar.

    Go for Monte Morris or Reaves after throwing the near max at Lopez would be my preference!

    Just do 3 year max. You can still pay Green and Sengun if needed.

    Why would anyone want to be here and lose for the next few years?

    No that is panic management - and it hurts us the year we need to make extension decisions....if FVV was a guy to build around - and he is not - you do that, but he is meant as training wheels for the young guy that's it.
