    Nah, he’s a decent 3rd string rookie. I’d be fine with us bringing Caruso back as long as we got rid of Ennis

    I'm on board to bring back Caruso, Wear and Andre. All combined would make what, less than 2.5 or somewhere around there?

    I don't think that's bad cheap insurance to fill roster out and get ready for Max players. Hopefully at worst one and bring back Randle with another solid FA.

    I'm concerned we have to decline or release all of our cheap young talent to make the salary room. I won't be a fan of that.

    All? There's literally no way we are waiving guaranteed 4 years of Kuzma, Hart, Ball, and Ingram. The only people who are non-guaranteed or need qualifying offers are Wear, Caruso, Zubac, Bryant, and Ennis (and Julius of course).

    Otherwise our expirings are Lopez, Isaiah, Pope, and Frye. You worried about losing those guys if we waive our rights to them?

    renouncing is part of the game

    I don't have to like it

    Especially if it involves our ability to keep promising young talent we've been developing. But I'm sure if they make that call, it's because they think what we're getting exceeds what we are giving up.

    I mean we're talking about renouncing Wear, Caruso, and Ennis to have a shot at max players. Why in the world is that question? :D

    Those three could even still come back for a minimum deal, it just means we give a year of their Bird Rights development.

    Our expirings too. If ol whatshisname drags his feet to let his magnanimousnous shine, it could mean others snatch them up before we can bring them back.

    Hopefully FA's make their decisions rather quickly this year so we can move on to filling out our championship roster lmbo

    The vast majority of FAs will wait for them to set the market anyway. There's not a lot of teams with cap space, it doesn't make a bunch of sense for a guy like Lopez to sign before LeBron/George unless someone offers him a massive contract and if that happens, then he was going to leave anyway because we're not offering him that.
