It’s Kawhi.

Too much noise.

We only got 3 forwards….I would vote for getting Russell back...if that was possible...I don't see him as a max guy...18 mil or something. Russell handles the ball & is a spot 3 shooter. I would think he fits. He was always bad with injuries & a baby....but the whole generation is a baby....his older & looked good last year. Then we got to fill positions. Have James look around for old guys. Do we need another forward.

The defenses of today...switch on everything...& you can't use your hands...you need guys with fast feet and can move at guard. You need guys who can play the new D. I hope they are looking for players...not stars.

Until it happens, I don't believe Kawhi will leave Toronto. In history, how many guy have left, on their own free will, a championship team?--Yohe

Sign Kawhi.

Rest is details.

The leaks for other FAs so far has been Beverly, Seth Curry, so the right type of guys.

LeBron is gonna be the PG.

DLo is a high-volume, low efficiency, defensive nightmare. Hard pass.

They signed someone who will be very important to them next year. Jared Dudley. Mainly because he's a great clubhouse guy. He was definitely vocal at Embiid last postseason.

Rondo and Javale will probably be back.

4th of Kawhi!

I'm okay bringing Javale back, as it will be at less minutes than he played last year (AD will play a lot of minutes at C).

They need to move past Rondo. He can't shoot, and he's a decade past his prime.

Would have preferred a younger Dudley, but it's an okay move. He wanted to be here, and he loves focusing on defense. Okay depth... but also the type you will likely need to replace in a year.

The fucking Clippers with Playoff P?

Genuinely shocked.

Sign Green and another guy, keep it moving.

Green and Javale are back.

I really hope they get Marcus Morris. I know we need "point guards", and fear getting sucked back into wasting money on Rondo. But Morris would give frontline versatility with Bron and Brow, and is a smart player both on offense and defense. He's probably the best player still available after Green came off the board.

Get guys like Iggy on the buyout market, and hope he's willing to come cheap. Again depth, and playmaking and second unit strength.

What they need as much as "point guards" are really guards who can 3+D along with a little ball handling. Bron remains the point. He needs 3&D guards more than he needs a Rondo ball handler who can't shoot, is overrated on defense, misses a ton of time, and his a head case.

$4M McGee
$8M KCP
$15M Green

All are two year deals, with the above reflecting one year amounts. McGee and KCP are likely team options for the second year. But there's $27M or so per year, so we can kiss off Morris. My guess is that AD will get his $4M back as well, so that's also likely all the money... though McGee and KCP may be limited Bird rights, so maybe they have more cap space left beyond minimums.

Quinn Cook will be signing with them. I guess he obviously wanted more playing time after not getting much backing up Curry.

The team looks good. Looks like the NBA has been turned inside out. Very hard to figure out what's going to happen. Now we need James to not fall apart.--Yohe

Boogie signs a 1-year deal with them. Nice little reunion with him and Davis.

Rondo comes back for a two-year deal.
