How is this even possible unless he is suggestion Ayton won't be here? We can't afford Booker, a true superstar (their contract), resign Ayton and McGee. We have 128 million in committed salary next year. We would by far have the largest luxury tax bill in the entire league. You would have to gut a huge portion of this roster or Flex is saying Ayton is gone.

Does Flex not realize who owns this team?

Your gonna have to do a sign and trade with Ayton. He’s your only high dollar value.

Ayton rookie max +any combo of Crowder, Saric, Craig will get the money to match

We can take on a pretty large contract if that’s what we want. We have three big puzzle pieces going into there last year on their contracts:
Crowder 10 million
Dario 9 million
Craig 5 million
Plus we have the sign and trade capabilities with Ayton. We definitely have a lot of money we can potentially move around.

As flawed and infuriating as Ayton is, I still would rather take a chance on a future including him over one including Monty. I haven't forgotten that Monty thinks Shamet and Payne are key pieces, and that Jalen Smith and Aaron Holiday weren't worth playing until he literally had no other choice.

Which is exactly my point. You can't as is. You will have to move a bunch of players. Which goes back to my original thought that this team likely will look much different next year.
