He is probably thinking Saric.
If we threw in Carter - something like that might be possible.
Things would be so much damn easier if we could trade our first rounder for Lou williams.
Or is it that "we" realize that James Jones is a GM, you've never been one nor have any idea what it is actually like, and Jones has to work in the real world and not the fantasy draft/trade/FA world. The team definitely improved last year - makes the playoffs without DA being an idiot. Looks to be improved again this season but we'll have to wait for results. Let's see what this season brings.
Boston could just sign him outright for the MLE, however Smart makes almost 14m, so if Baynes wanted that extra 4, maybe he could try to push for something like this. I don't know.
If this is true it disputes the assertion that Miami didn't want him back.
Smart still seems a core part of that team. So I doubt it would happen. The Pels have too many pg's. Hmm.
I think a 1-2 scorer off the bench, a vet, would be a nice final addition here. We could also use a center, too.
Would the Kings be stupid enough to do a Bogdan for Baynes sign and trade--maybe if we throw in a second round pick? They have to do something with Bogdan.
They just wanted a future upgrade more. This tells me that at most Crowder was a placeholder for them for a year, not a part of their plans.
Crowder is interesting. Previously was the best PG he ever played with Mike Conley? Now it's definitely Chris Paul. I love Goran, but he's not as good as Chris Paul.
I would be ALL OVER that.
giannis is the end game
No it shows that they don't want big contracts beyond this season. They want to have enough next year to go after Giannis and presumably another star player as well. That is why they are inking 2 year deals with 1 guaranteed. Signing guys like Dragic and Crowder to deals that would get in the way of that doesn't make sense for them.
This adds to the master plan idea for 2021-22 season.
I wish the Suns had a master plan beyond just bringing in smart, gritty guys who fit in. The question is this: Fit in to what?
There’s no way Boston trades Smart for Baynes. He’s a bedrock for that team.
I only brought him up because I've heard him mentioned in various rumors and Boston is interested in bringing Baynes back. There's no ulterior motive or anything.
