    Thibodeau supposedly being the front runner for the Knicks job could just be because he was Rose's (new president and former agent) long time client, but he's not the type you hire to re-build.

    Between that and his being old school, this probably bodes well for their potentially having interest in DeRozan. Can't imagine he'll be priority, but if they can't get anything significant accomplished he could be a fallback.
    Take it. Swing a deal with OKC as well.

    DeRozan for Knicks pick to draft Deni
    Spurs pick to OKC for Steven Adams

    Dejounte/ White
    Lonnie/ Mills
    Deni/ Keldon
    Aldridge/ Samanic/ Lyles
    Adams/ Poetl

    Knicks can sign DeRozan without giving up their pick.

    The Knicks obviously aren't giving up the (projected) 6th pick for DeRozan. To get Avdija, it would have to be the type of 3 team trade I outlined.

    Why would the Spurs want Adams when Poeltl is low key comparable, younger and will likely cost less than half the price? Aldridge can't defend "PF's" anymore and that starting lineup would have severe spacing issues.

    In my trade they'd be left with . . .

    Starters: Lyles, Avdija, Aldridge, Walker, Murray

    Bench: Mills, Gay, Forbes, Poeltl, Ntilikina, Johnson

    Deep bench: Eubanks, Thomas, Metu, Samanic, Weatherspoon

    Obviously some t/o's, r and ufa's, non and partial guarantees to sort out. Leaves one spot on the 15 man (41st pick?), though they'd likely try to accommodate Aldridge and Gay with win now situations.

    I somehow missed a better, more obvious one, that eliminates the question of whether the Knicks would be interested in DeRozan (supposedly they now realize the obvious, which is that they need players that compliment Barrett) . . .

    To Pistons: DeRozan, White, 11

    To Spurs: Kennard, 5

    Avdija/Johnson
    Walker/Kennard
    Murray/Mills

    Much better fitting perimeter corps.

    Just like the Knicks they also don’t need to trade to get DeRozan. On their own they can have a rotation something to the effect of:

    Hayes. Rose
    Kennard. Snell
    DeRozan. Doumbouya
    Griffin.
    Wood

    Sure, they could probably sign him . . . in a year. By that time, Rose could be gone and him and/or Griffin could fall off a cliff.

    Obviously, this would hinge on them not being overly high on the prospects likely to be available at 5.

    Also, fit is vital with DeRozan.

    Griffin/Doumbouya
    Snell/Mykhailiuk
    TBD/Wood
    DeRozan/Brown/Thomas
    White/Rose

    They can sign him this summer. DeRozan can opt out and sign his last contract with either his old team, old coach, or even another team in a major market.

    It's expected that no one with significant money on a player option will opt out. This is obviously based on that scenario.

    Don't know if I'd have do that if I was Jerami Grant. I can see this being a VERY unhappy season for FA's.

    jerami grant is worth way more in today's nba. he is the modern day center and can shoot 3's and run like a gazelle. I would very surprised if Derozan did that with his $27M player option though.

    True, though Jordan has an excuse since he's 57.

    I think you can walk away from 9M, and not take too much of a haircut if the cap goes south. It could be worth the risk. I don’t think the same thing can be said for 27M.

    However, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, some of the players who have to make option decisions for 2020/21 have slightly earlier deadlines. For instance, if the Spurs don’t make the postseason, DeMar DeRozan will be required to make his decision within seven days of the team’s last game, per Marks.

    • October 13
      • DeMar DeRozan, Spurs ($27,739,975)
        • Note: This deadline would be moved to seven days after the Spurs’ last game if they don’t make the playoffs.

    Switch Murray for white and I like this trade. But I’d use the 5th pick on a different player

    Likelihood of this rises, as apparently, the NBA is going to smooth the cap instead of having it drop and then rise again. It will apparently stay at the same $109M next year. DD can get decent money as the likely best FA on the market.

    If traded, I think Orlando is a more likely destination for DDR. As noted earlier some of these other teams could just sign him if he opted out.

    It was either Woj or Givony on twitter that relayed the news. I just hope that Jimmy Dolan is as stupid and desperate as I think he is. He's struck out over and over getting a "name" to sign in NY.

    I want Derozan to opt in and get traded to get some assets back. How does smoothing help with opting in?
