    Just thinking in my head I hope we can get one of George, James or Kawhi.... Along with Randle, I still like our squad to compete.

    We all know if two stars come then Randle is more than likely gone lol.

    Jules stonewalling us...


    I still think we match anything if he doesn't just outright sign back with us.

    Btw, Dallas won the coin flip vs Atlanta to have the 3rd best odds at landing the 1st overall pick. There is a slightly higher salary as the 3rd pick vs the 4th pick, but any little counts as it bleeds into how much they can potentially offer Jules with their remaining cap over the summer.

    dang, he's a patient man. I'd have wanted to smack that TMZ guy for trying to start crap.

    Lakers max: $149M / 5 years (25% of cap with 8% annual increases)

    Any other team max: $109M / 4 years (25% of cap with 5% annual increases)

    Year 1 of any Randle max contract will be about $25.3M but LA's advantage is that we can offer 8% annual increases vs 5% and can offer 5 years vs 4 years, leading to about $40M more than any other team can offer over the life of the contract.

    That being said, I'd be shocked if Jules got anywhere close to that type of bag.

    Thanks, Id also be surprised if he got anything above $15-$16 million. We have all seen worse deals though haha
