    Wow. I guess Ariza will be starting. Parsons probably isnt worth that amount- but we've definitely taken a stepback talent wise- I guess we're not going all in this year either. What a ****ty offseason. I hope this cap flexibility translates to something later down the road.

    Yep, paying a role player a max level contract is awesome.

    Giving up on the season and hoping and praying that a star falls into our laps before Howard and Harden leave.

    It was the right move. We can't afford any key role players if we match Parsons. And let's face it - we still need a few more solid players to be a contender.

    Time to move on. Ariza is now our starting SF. We're getting an upgrade at the position because of his defensive abilities. And I don't think our offense will skip a beat.

    This sucks. I understand the decision, but still. So far this offseason has been a compete and utter disaster.

    ****. This significantly hurts our team this year.

    I get that Morey values long-term cap flexibility, and it makes sense why he does, but we're losing a lot of value by letting him walk.
