    what a bench!

    dwight-capela
    dmo-jones-harrell
    ariza-brew-dekker
    harden-thornton-KJ
    lawson-beverley

    i would sign terry to a 1yr deal for the remainder of the MLE to create another trade chip. then look to trade him, KJ, and jones for a PF. that package could probably combine for about 8-10M incoming salary in trade.

    Guys, remember when just 24 hours ago, Morey was considered a fraud and a terrible GM and an idiot and etc.?

    Remember?

    Google "Warren Buffett" and "Value investing". Buy low/sell high is genius. Buffett has become revered for less.

    On the forefront, yes. No cap room.

    But if Durant is willing (still a long shot IMO), we know Morey thinks ahead and will certainly find a way to clear cap space.

    Denver was going to eat the $25M in salary if they released Ty Lawson. They saved $22M with this deal.

    Ok now we just have to hope Lawson doesn't serve any time.

    The genius of Morey is him NOT jumping the gun in the offseason and instead keeping us in position to seize opportunity when it presented itself.

    also wouldnt be a bad idea to just keep that portion of the MLE available to use later on in the season?

    Calling all Uber Htown drivers to hook up Lawson with free rides anytime he wants.
