    Evan Mobley just signed a Max like Franz and Barnes. Franz and him are about the same level of talent in my opinion. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/40606674/cavaliers-evan-mobley-agrees-5-year-224m-extension

    Simons is a dynamic 2.5-level scorer -- his finishing at the rim is so-so -- who can really shoot and bumped up his playmaking. He has two years left on a nice contract, and looms as one of the league's most interesting trade chips. Trade machine enthusiasts have long directed Simons to the Orlando Magic, but he'd be a really interesting fit with the San Antonio Spurs -- who need shooting and have the defensive infrastructure to protect Simons. https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/40583390/lowe-7-most-discussed-nba-teams-offseason The national media keeps brining this up. Zach Lowe mentions it anytime he talks about The Magic or Blazers. I’m not looking to do anything before The Trade Deadline personally. I can’t wait to see our current roster perform next season.

    RIP Pat Williams. Thank you for brining us this team to Orlando. Your positivity in life will be missed.

    My Dad literally brings that up anytime I watch a Magic Game. Especially when he sees Cole bricking jumpers. We could have drafted Maxey over Cole with that pick also.

    That’s probably a realistic ceiling for Jett CT. I like that comparison for him. I just watched yesterday’s game because I had to work. AB, Jett, and Tristan all looked very good. There is a decent chance they all play this year and contribute. It looks like all three were solid picks for Weltman.

    Now that Isaac’s contract details have emerged what a great contract! We are going to be even scarier defensively with him Suggs and KCP leading the way.

    Magic sign Franz Wagner to $224M max extension Agreed to a reported five-year, max extension with forward Franz Wagner Grade: B- The first-round picks from the 2021 draft now entering the fourth and final season of their rookie contract have been eligible to negotiate extensions with their current teams since the day after the Boston Celtics won the NBA championship on June 17, but only the Toronto Raptors and Scottie Barnes had struck a deal before Wagner and the Orlando Magic did so Friday. Like Barnes, Wagner will be guaranteed the 25% max starting in 2025-26, currently projected at $224 million. (Given new NBA national TV deals will begin that season, we have a pretty good idea the cap will increase the maximum possible 10%, used in these calculations.) And, like Barnes, Wagner can push that to 30% of the salary cap and a projected $269 million if he makes All-NBA next season. https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/40387163/nba-free-agency-2024-reaction-grades-biggest-signings Good read from Pelton. I didn’t realize Maxey signed for that much less.

    You are right about everything you wrote about OKC. They are further along than us currently. However I just have to say this as I think a Presti and also Daryl Morey from Philly never get called out by the fans boys on the internet. How many championships has Presti brought to OKC in his 17 years as their GM? How many Hall of Famers and MVPs have left him? His teams are always in the mix but he tends to get cute like he did with the Harden trade years ago. He sat on his picks and trade assists during this trade deadline when it was clear they needed a center to protect stick boy. I like their summer with Caruso and Hartenstein though. I’m sure this won’t be popular as Presti can do no wrong according to the media. I just don’t like that he gets treated like he’s Pat Riley when his teams have never won a ring and only made The Finals one time with so much extreme talent.

    Since getting drafted in 2021, Franz Wagner is 1st in points 2nd in rebounds 2nd in assists 2nd in steals 1st in threes 1st in field goals 2nd in free throws for the Orlando Magic.

    That’s about the number in my head as well. 25 million a year or so. With the cap going up so much most experts I respect claim an average starter should cost between 20-30 million over the next three years. Just warning some poster that will get major sticker shock with these salaries.

    I posted this question the other day but didn’t get a response. What do we think Suggs should get paid after last year? Should it be Quickly money or less?

    It looks like 225 ish unless he makes All NBA, MVP, or DPOY. It’s like the one Barnes signed a few days ago. So we pretty much have very little to no cap space next summer by signing him this summer. I’m happy for Franz and our team. I hope his shooting returns to normal because now he is our second best player if we are ever able to win a championship. A lot rides on him continuing to improve which I believe he will.

    Same here I cherry picked some comments he made about Young and Garland. I’d say it will be pretty quite on that front for awhile.

    But Mitchell is now under contract for three more seasons -- a coup for the Cavs even if his extension is not as long as they might have dreamed. The Mitchell-Garland fit has proven more awkward than expected, and there were rumblings Mitchell's return might spur Garland's camp to push for a trade. Those rumblings -- and Garland's trade market -- have quieted. And that's fine. Garland is just 24. I'd bet on a nice bounce back after a plague of injuries derailed him last season. https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/40496545/clippers-nuggets-convenient-fear-second-apron-first-week-nba-free-agency
