Doc Brown wrote:My hope is, that is Jordan Hill does walk, that we at least get something out of it. Whether it be a sign and trade for Beasley or someone else. I hope we aren't left with nothing if he decides to leave.
If we could negotiate a 4 year ~20 million dollar deal with Beasley, with him taking 4-5 million in the first year, I think we can pull it off.
Like I said earlier, I think it's easier to replace a Jordan Hill (Amundson / Evans / Martin / Kwame / Mahinmi Allen ) then it is to find a legit bench scorer for that price range. Mini-MLE price range.
JGC wrote:I would love Beasley, but I don't see how his market value is at or below the mid-level exception. He's a young player with a 20 PPG season under his belt and he's nearly 7-feet tall.
Just for some perspective, some FA signings from last year.
Glen Davis $6.3M/yr
Marcus Thornton $8M/yr
JJ Barea $4.5M/yr
Caron Butler $8M/yr
Kwame Brown $7M/yr
Shane Battier $3M/yr
Kris Humprhies $8M/yr
Tayshaun Prince $6.8M/yr
Based on some of those numbers and situations, $5M is below market value for Beasley. I'd put him around the $8M mark.
Young players just don't take ~50% pay cuts when they're as young as Beasley is and entering their first free agency period.

1st year - 5 million 2nd year - 6 million 3rd year - 7 million 4th year player option - 7 million
4 years / 25 million.....might be too much, but once Kobe is off the books, we can afford a 7 million dollar a year player and still be able to go out and make some moves if need be.

You think Chandler or Howard ‘shut down’ Gasol and Bynum as Ibaka just did? The team shot under 42%.

He was a big effin part of it. He made it all work.
JUST-MING wrote:therealdeal wrote:So were Westbrook, Harden, and Sefolosha who not only played very good perimeter defense.
None of them checked Gasol and Bynum. Give the man credit.
JUST-MING wrote:therealdeal wrote:Are you reading my posts?
Doesn’t even warrant a response. Denver double-teamed Bynum, and he still shot 51.2%.
