    2018-19 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Thanks. Trying to read the NBA salary rules online requires a law degree plus!!! I thought he would be early Bird exception rule which is 175% while non-Bird is 120%. Anyway the way he is playing I would not go 120% if I were him, he can get much more if he keeps it up.

    Thanks, that is why a "capologist" is so important. If I read thru all the jibberish and understand it all we can extend him for 175% of his current deal or the average NBA contract, I would assume 175% is greater or about $18 million/year? I assume 4 years. I would do that and work to move Fournier's contract off the books.

    I was under the impression that the extension had to be done before the season started and now it cannot be done and T. Ross will now be an unrestricted FA. So we are faced with trading him before the deadline or waiting to try to resign him after July 1st. So it becomes a "will he, won't he" resign but you can only speculate. That is the hard part. My hope is that he likes it here and he resigns.

    I love Ross and think he can be our 2 for the future. My only concern is he is an unrestricted FA at the end of this year. Offers will be coming his way if he keeps playing like this. And playing like this makes his value pretty high to a playoff team. I would love to keep him. But Losing him and getting nothing in return would be managerial ineptitude at it's highest. I hope our FO knows what it is doing and does not screw this one up.

    I would not either and I love his game and would not trade him unless we know we cannot resign him. The way he is playing right now he will have his pick as to where he will go at the end of the year. That is the hard decision, does Ross want to come back here? If he wants to win immediately then I think he will be gone. Supposedly Hezonja said he wanted to come back and we saw how that worked out. I would hate to see him walk and we get nothing in return.

    Philly does not need draft picks so I think a 2nd would work but they do need shooters now with Covington and Saric gone. If I were them I would want Ross and therein lies the problem. If they would take Augustin + Simmons it is a go. Ross would take some serious thinking.

    Totally agree with you and ?4thewin followup. Just think it is worth the risk as long as Philly does not ask for the moon. Might even get Fultz4thewin. lol.

    I do too. Something tells me he is going to get over this and develop or be developed. I think the risk (if I read it correctly) of getting a former #1pick for the rest of this year (about $7 million) with a team option next year is worth a try. Every pundit had All Star written all over him. Just looks like he is in a bad situation in Philly. Unless there is soemthing else there we do not know about. (attitude, injury, etc)

    Gotta think it is all in his head and a change of scenery may correct that. 50% shooter and 41% three point shooter in college. His numbers similar to Wade and Harden in college. Had every intangible that DraftExpress was looking for. Would love to see the Magic give him a try even though I think it is improbable.

    Along with making some right moves (either by luck or design). Milwaukee is a good model for us. Hennigan's moves did not pan out. Current FO's moves and direction starting to pay dividends. We still need to solve the PG situation, figure out the Ross and Vucevic scenario (loving Ross's play so far), and become a player in FA (probably next year not this year). I do not see us far away since I like this young team. Really looking forward to the rest of this year since, typically, youngsters play better, the 2nd half of the a season.

    Sometimes a change in scenery works wonders. To have a chance at a #1 pick, whose accolades were universal y every pundit, is too good to pass up. Passive describes our organization. I would agree to not give up at least next year's pick. If I read it correctly Fultz's contract is only $8million+ this year with a team option next year. That is worth the risk. When this new FOO came in I had hopes they would be aggressive. Thus far they have been anything but aggressive. Come on FO you can do it!

    One thing I have noticed about Philly is they are not reluctant to trade what does not fit. And, giving them credit, they are playing chess and looking more than one move down the road. I hated their "process" because of the tanking but their trades and other moves have been masterful. I hope we at least try to get Fultz (for the potential of what he can bring) offering what does not fit for us. Philly may not even want our first round pick next year due to salary cap implications. They are in win now mode not build for the future. I am just not sure we have anything they want.

    The one thing I know is that they will go 1 and 2 in next year's draft if they declare. lol. I would bet the bank on that. And I would take either one. Barrett makes more sense with our need but if I could project Zion at SF (and he does have a nice outside touch) it would be real tempting. No 3 out there could handle him physically which leads to the Shaq comparisons (4's mentioned above maybe). Not hard to see Draymond Green comparisons. Good article fron SBNation below. https://www.sbnation.com/nba/2018/11/7/18071760/zion-williamson-stats-highlights-rj-barrett

    Hope that continues since I like this team but it will take time and the right combo's. Patience, as always, is a virtue that we need.

    Agree with your thought. But we better get pick 1, 2 or 3. I know it is early but Bleacher Report has the three Dukie freshmen as 1, 2, and 3. I like Romeo Langford and Quentin Grimes too. I would love to get lucky in the lottery this year and be able to get another good young player. Then add the veteran or veterans next year when we have max money.
