    As a former UK fan, I keep wondering how top high school ballers don't see Calipari for the fraud he is.
    Well, he gets them drafted and a lot of money. But they're all bull players. None of them know how to win basketball games, lead teams, grind out wins, do much of anything. He's been instrumental in wrecking a whole era of basketball.

    Chandler and Jordan could swap yarns about their time with the Mavs. Oh, wait...

    He has almost zero value if he is not teamed with CP3.

    There are teams that could use DJ for sure. But LOL asking for a top 5 pick for him.

    I mean, let's not act like if DJ were a FA this year that he would not be getting max level money. He would. But he only has one functional year left on his deal (player option after next year - which you would think he opts out and signs bigger deal).

    But who'd give him a max? Which team would get better or even elite with him. He's just a finishing big.

    They're about to give Nerlens Noel a big contract. The center market is bad rn. Dwight and Brook both got salary dumped today.

    Who would give Chandler Parsons the max? Or Evan Turner? Or pay Ibaka or Byiombo?

    Relevant now that Pau Gasol has opted out. Excerpt from an article by Kevin Pelton on the cap maneuvering required to get Chris Paul.

    If Paul picks San Antonio, and the Spurs pay him the max, clearing enough room under the salary cap to fit his $35.3 million salary will be tricky. Even if center Pau Gasol declines his $16.2 million player option for 2017-18 and the Spurs renounce all their other free agents -- a group including key reserves Manu Ginobili, Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons -- they'd still have less than $23 million in projected cap space based on the NBA's current $101 million salary-cap projection.

    San Antonio could waive Parker and stretch his $15.4 million 2017-18 salary over the next three seasons to get to $33.2 million in cap space. Giving Paul his max would also require trading young reserves Kyle Anderson, Davis Bertans and Dejounte Murray as well as this year's first-round pick (drafting a player who intends to remain overseas would also work), which would leave the Spurs with just three players under contract before signing Paul.

    Alternatively, San Antonio could try to use draft picks to entice a team under the cap to take on Parker's entire $15.5 million salary, which under current projections would allow the Spurs to avoid trading any young players and to retain the rights to free agents Simmons and David Lee while still creating the necessary cap space.

    What about getting someone to take on Green's contract? I would think it's moveable.I just find the idea of moving or stretching Parker to be too far-fetched.

    The NBA is not blameless, however, I agree with what Mr. Body had to say about the products of Calipari's "coaching."

    With Gasol at least temporarily off the books come July 1 — along with David Lee, who a league source said Tuesday is also planning to decline his $2.3 million option — the Spurs will enter free agency on the hook for about $76 million in guaranteed salary.

    That puts the Spurs in position to begin free agency with as much as $24 million in cap space — enough to bolster the roster, though not quite enough for an All-NBA superstar like Paul.

    In order to scrape together the $35.7 million needed to pay Paul or a similar maximum free agent next season, the Spurs would have to shed an additional $10 million or so in payroll.

    Finding a trade partner for guard Danny Green would likely do the trick. So would waiving Tony Parker, the franchise point guard whose recovery from a devastating knee injury last month has cast an unexpected question mark over the Spurs’ offseason.

    The idea of signing Paul to a gutted roster is pretty far-fetched to me. I think the Spurs are more realistically targeting George Hill. Heck, I think Patrick Beverley would be a nice acquisition.

    Hill/Green/Leonard/Burton/Aldridge . Best Defensive Lineup in the League by a large margin.

    Murray/Hanga/Anderson/Bertans/Milutinov

    Forbes/Allen/????/?????/????

    This is what I realistically want. If we could somehow squeeze Jonathon Simmons that'd be awesome
