We pulled a "Pat Riley" and were able to convince both Carmelo and LeBron to team up with Kobe next year?
We could sit them down in a room with Kobe, and offer them $85M/4years each. We'd have to fill out the roster with minimum guys, but just like in Miami, people would come to play with that team.
If they agreed to it, we could quickly deal Nash and the rights to whomever we take at #7 to a team with cap room for future picks (76ers). Assuming the cap comes in at $63M, that would leave us with around $38M in space if we renounce every free agent.
This would be amazing. Hopefully we pull it off.. Will suck to give away the pick but small price to pay to be in the finals next season.
Yeah I mean we could always try to buy a pick too. This type of move wouldn't happen until after the draft I'd think anyway. Trade Nash/#7 for #10 from Philly or #14 from the Suns or #20 from the Raptors. I think there's probably a market there. Then you've still got your 1st round pick to develop through with the other three stars.
Far fetched scenario that this is, it's fun to think about.
