    From Wright’s words post-draft, doesn’t sound like they would be going for THT. He said they would go for size and shooting.

    All signs pointing to Lauri so far.

    You didn't even make it to the most controversial part, tbh

    One would hope Brian Wright would've had the time to at least glance through the CIA handbook by now.

    I don’t know how useful going CIA during free agency really is. Being secretive doesn’t give you any advantage… does it? If a player wants to come, they’ll come.

    I'm all in on the Collins max

    If they match or just give him the same money, then they'll be paying the tax in a couple of years and the Spurs will get their share.

    If they get Collins, I think he'll be great at a higher usage and he's young enough for the next great team. Vertical threat, transition threat, stretch 4, smallball 5, fits everything well and could unlock some things with the guards. White was already one of the best pick and roll guys in the league, give him Collins and watch out.

    And if he gets popped for eating clen and trenning hard and suspended again then it becomes a tank year and they get a lottery pick

    All the other options are crap anyway. Signing Collins to a sheet might be useful if only for temporarily locking up space so the Spurs can't do any 12:01 deals of trash

    Just to be clear, you’re not advocating for signing BOTH Collins and Markannen, right?

    Collins is basically gone.

    I think someone like Bobby Portis would be better as a shooting 4. Also, Oubre is exactly the sort of player you should use an inflated 1 year contract on.

    Collins is really the only free Agent out there that makes sense. Everybody else is just meh. We definitely need a trade. With players like Siakam, Simmons and Turner being available, the Spurs top priority should be to land one of these guys and offer Collins the max. I wouldn’t be mad if the Spurs make the Lakers sweat by offering THT a contract

    Is there a concern in offering Colins the Max (tying up funds), that someone swoops in, while awaiting the result, and signs Lauri to an Offer sheet instead?

    I'm nonplussed on either tbh (though certainly Collins is the more exciting of the two for having the more well rounded game).

    The reports on Collins are that he is going to take a 5/120. Maybe that's true, but it's stupid and bad work from his agent if true.

    Why agree to 5/120 when you can leverage the Spurs at 4/120?

    Anyways, the Hawks forum where that nbaSUPES guy posts had some other alleged insider last night saying that Collins was going to do due diligence and then the Hawks would match, which made supes have a fit and curse Collins for not agreeing to a cheaper deal. Pretty funny. Haven't checked today to see what other stuff is allegedly happening

    That might be a concern if Lauri was a great piece.

    Besides, teams might wait to see if the Bulls pull his offer. If they are going to sign Lonzo to a sheet, I think that only happens by pulling Lauri's.

    Any the Bulls might wait to see if new Orleans pulls the Lonzo sheet to sign a different guard

    So if new Orleans loses on Lowry, They might re-sign Ball. Bulls miss Ball, they re-sign Lauri. It's all a mess

    How much would Bobby Portis cost and does he fit? Or would y’all prefer just re-signing Dieng? I’ve always liked Portis’ all around game and energy. I think he would bring some toughness too maybe like a Willis or Mohammed. Not exactly the same styles of play but I don’t think anyone would label Portis as passive.

    I tend to agree with that plan of action. I think the most likely outcome is signing Lauri and a sign and trade for DeRozan. I believe Atlanta will match any offer sheet for Collins.

    Hopefully the old dudes are gone.
    Success depends on the young ones stepping up big time, a good piece or two added that complements and finding teamwork and pulling together to make something good happen.
    It could happen.
    Unlikely though.

    1. Sign and trades - could be huge for the team
    2. trade either Murray or White - Spurs need to make a decision on which one to keep
    3. try to sign someone OR take expiring contracts for picks and embrace the tank

    *edit* forgot step 4

    4. do NOT sign Oubre

    Two things that would make the offseason a success (even after f'n up the draft):

    1. The old man calling it quits after the olympics.
    2. Derozan GTFOff the team.

    Unfortunately, I doubt the ego maniac walks away this summer. Which is a bummer because the OP knows full well that Sloanavich coming back makes it impossible to "Embrace the Rebuild"

    I think #2 will happen but I wouldn't put it past this dumbass GM to bring Derozan back on some stupid ass contract. This is a bottom 3 FO in the league and I fully expect them to prove it over these next several days

    timvp we must be in a boy band because we are clearly NíSync

    Exactly my thoughts and glad we are on the same page. Iíve been leading the Twitter crusade on nearly all of these items as well. If itís obvious to you and I letís hope it is to the FO.

    But Iím worried. I donít trust them to see things this obviously
