I think our "save cap" plan for year after year is gona end up being like Dall....we'll eventually give some one the max it just wont be the player we hoped for. Next year I dont see Marc, Aldridge going anywhere and those 2 are the only 2 I'd be interested in.

and if they do go somewhere at their ages it's to a team that is on the upswing and/or ready. That isn't us.

We aren't going to attract anyone until we get better through the draft IMHO. That is going to be nearly impossible for a few years as we traded most of our picks away. Kobe will be gone in a couple years then we hit the bottom and start over. Something may come out of left field but that seems so remote based on what's going on and who may be available.

I'm not sure I'm buying that line from GS.... I think it was more like Love wasn't willing to guarantee extending and that's the story that was put out to the press. Klay is a good 3rd wheel on a very good team. I'd put him in the poor man's Danny Granger (prime) area actually.

I feel like this cap saving plan is quite restrictive to other moves that would benefit this team now and in the future, prime example is Hill contract to Stephenson contract. This feels like a lesser plan than the ones we had after Shaq trade where they supposedly were saving their cap for eventual Yao and/or Amare contract offer. Obviously Pau was that left field trade that changed everything. As Roos said however, dont see it happening anymore with the new CBA, I already think 2015 off-season is gona be another failure because there really aren't any franchise changing players that is available AND will be willing to leave. Marc was/is the closest thing to it but money and his love for Mem and recent statements about playing with Zbo for remainder of his career doesn't help our chances any.

I agree. Klay is certainly NOT worth max money, which may work to our advantage. If he's only going to get 10 million or so per year, then it boils down to where he wants to play. He's a SoCal kid who grew up a Laker fan. I would love Klay for around 9-10 million or so.

Love wasn't willing to extend in Cleveland either.. He's going to wait to hit free agency & have the option of getting the full 5 year max just like every other superstar. He did give a verbal commitment to re-signing in both GS & Cle, which is as much as you're ever going to get from a star that can be a UFA.

Have to remember if Love puts pen to paper on a contract now, he can only get an extension of the current deal and the extension is only good for 3 years, iirc. It actually pays him more to wait til next year, then opt out, at that point he can get the full 5 years.

We have a great mix of young and veteran players. We are on the way back now. Good athletic players with the right coach. I'm just not seeing this suck factor I read so much about. Seems to be a lot of negative pessimism to help people cope that are afraid to put it all on the line. From the front office down the team is now doing what it needs to rebuild. I think the possibility of Beasley turning it around is worth the little risk. It could go either way but with this group of hard working guys he would completely stand out as the only shirker on the team. I think he will buy in.

I think the extension they've been talking about is a wink-wink about Love coming back even after getting to free agency, right? Otherwise it doesn't make sense for him.

Yes.. He committed to re-signing after the season when he becomes a FA.

& it looks like it might come back to bite the Cavs.. There is talk of the NBA blocking the trade because they talked to Love about re-signing during the moratorium after Wiggins signed his contract.

We had 3 players going into this offseason...Nash, Sacre, and Kobe. Truth be told, I don't ever think that was enough to entice FA in today's market. Nash is done, Sacre is an end of the bench rotation player, and Kobe is coming off two major injuries. Still, we filled out the roster, and will probably see a 10-12 game improvement IMO.

Next year, we should have at least players on the roster with the hopes that some of young guys are developing and moving in the right direction...we'll have Kobe, Randall, Young, Kelly, Clarkston(more than likely), Sacre, and a Houston 1st and 2nd (highly protected) that will more than likely be in the high teens low 20's to add another young piece. Not to mention the capspace we preserved...here's hoping that our younger guys show out and have successful seasons...

That's only if the Cavs are dumb enough to have something in writing...otherwise, the NBA won't do anything about it.

Well apparently they're already using the acquisition as a selling point to free agents, so I wouldn't be surprised if they get some sort of slap on the wrist.

But the NBA won't block this trade. That's reserved for the Lakers.

Wiggins for Love straight up (after the Philly deal)= okay.

Gasol/Odom for Paul= not okay.

Actually, I'm mistaken...it doesn't only have to be put in writing according to Windhorst...

Sources confirmed to ESPN.com that the Cavs and Love can make no such arrangements about the future, even verbally, without violating salary cap circumvention rules in the league's collective bargaining agreement. Love has made it widely known he intends to opt out of his contract at season's end to become a free agent in July 2015, but the circumvention rules state that any discussions between the Cavs and Love regarding any future contract cannot take place until Love becomes a free agent next summer.

Yup.... We'll see if the league does anything. They can't undue the trade because there it wasn't a "term" of the deal I'd think. Everyone seems to forget that the Hornets were in possession of the entire league and the Commissioner was responsible for OKing their transactions.... this is a completely different situation here.

My guess is a fine.

Anyone recall what happened with Glen Taylor and Joe Smith? The Wolves were not only fined $3.5m, they forfeited their first round pick for FIVE years (2003 was eventually restored to them). In addition, Taylor was suspended for a year and VP of Basketball Operations Kevin McHale was forced into a leave of absence.

So yes, the NBA usually takes this seriously. I say "usually" because it remains to be seen if that hypocritical owner in Cleveland has Silver in his back pocket like he did Stern.

Personally, I'd Love to see Cleveland take it in the balls for this. Poetic justice and all that... Som nam na! as the Thai would say ...

NBA could veto Love deal
By The Sports Xchange
6 hours ago
The SportsXchange

The NBA could block the trade that results in Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star power forward Kevin Love going to the Cleveland Cavaliers if it is determined that it violates league rules.

According to ESPN, the NBA is monitoring the process in case an illegal agreement is reached between Love and the Cavaliers.

Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday that the Cavaliers have a deal in place to give Love a five-year, $120 million extension, but both teams have been careful in not publicly acknowledging the trade or a contract extension for Love.

According to reports, Cleveland is sending center Anthony Bennett, guard/forward Andrew Wiggins and a future first-round draft pick to Minnesota for Love. Minnesota will send Bennett, as part of a package of players, to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for forward Thaddeus Young.

Trade talks can take place, but the deal cannot become official until Aug. 23. Cleveland signed No. 1 draft choice Wiggins on July 24. NBA rules stipulate that draft picks cannot be traded within 30 days of their signing.
The Cavaliers cannot offer Love a contract extension before the deal is official.

If the NBA proves that the Cavaliers and Love agreed to an extension before the deal is official, the league can veto the trade and punish both teams.

Love, 25, averaged 19 points and 12.2 rebounds in six seasons with the Timberwolves but never made the playoffs. In the final year of his rookie contract, Love planned to test the free agent market in July 2015 if he was not traded by the Timberwolves.

Silver was mentored by stern too long even if there was strong evidence of wrong doing the league and Silver would find a way to make the trade happen. The opposite of basketball reasons.
