    I agree that is the most likely scenario..
    They likely have almost enough to do that, but they’d have to renounce everyone, including Derrick Rose, and that would make Thibs blow a gasket. They have only six players under contract, so you’d have to add seven minimum salary cap holds. Both DD and Lowry would have to take less than their MAX, probably below $30 M each.

    I completely disagree with that. In fact, the best situation for the Spurs is a sign and trade that sends DeRozan to MIN and KAT to the Spurs.
    Would Demar agree to a sign and trade only to be traded to Siberia?

    Nope. It would have to be a three way trade, maybe with the Knicks. No one would sign with the TWolves , which is essentially what a sign and trade is.

    I expect ddr to be in that range... Lowry I expect to be between 20 and 25

    You can expect all you want. Players want what they want. I’m not even sure that the remaining 6 players, plus DD and Lowry, plus 5 minimum contract guys is even a playoff team in the East.

    Yes, he can want all he wants for any amount but, based in the lack of interest at the deadline based on teams that didn't want to pay him $30M next year I expect him to have to take less than that... so my expectations are based on the indicators I see in the market..

    It's weird because this guy has a game similar to Kobe Bryant. He's not Kobe, but he's not that far off in his ability to create his own shot off the dribble and his ability to hit the midrange and get to the rim almost at will and finish. Yet in today's game, that is not a valuable skill, at least not if you can't also hit 3 pointers or play great defense. I do think he has showcased great playmaking skills and there is no question the Spurs are a bubble playoff team because of what he has done. If he were not on the team, they would be solidly in the lottery. I'm curious to see what teams think of him this offseason and what is value is. Since some teams can sign him outright, it makes sense that they wouldn't trade away the future for a guy playing on the last year of his contract. But the Spurs have likely been willing to trade him any of the last 3 years and still have not gotten a decent enough offer to move him.

    Also, how long would you sign him for? He's 31 years old. I would not sign him to longer than 3 years if I were any NBA team. But there is no way you can consider a lowball to him. It's not like he wouldn't be one of the best players on any team in the NBA.
