    Third year team option makes this at least a good signing. FVV will be positive for our young guys and we don't have a first rounder this year. We needed to pay SOMEONE to get to the minimum, and Green and Sengun's extensions won't be kicking in for another 2 years anyway.

    Good point on the salary floor. Totally forgot about that. But my god, $43M? Now we are giving D Brooks $20m? Honestly, for that money we should have just paid Harden.

    I just hope that all these signings are to set us up to get Jalen Brown or some other disgruntled star (like how we got JH and T-Mac in the first place).

    If it's a 2 years + TO, then I'm fully ok with it.

    i'd prefer FVV over Harden

    but why couldn't Stone just throw the $80millions on Austin Reaves instead of Brooks :mad:

    I'm on board, it was still an overpay for a mid player, but only being 2 years salvages it.

    The Brooks deal on the other hand? Complete disaster

    I agree that Brooks will have to win me over. I thought his value would’ve plummeted after his playoffs with Memphis

    This is a great signing if it's only a 2 year deal.
