I fear any player that after numerous years in the league finally puts it all together after years of people saying, "this will be his year."
Ariza is one guy who has already done it. Salmons has been notorious for showing up in contract years too, only to disappear a season later.

Looking back on this thread I thought it would be interesting to bring it back going into JVs contract year
How much would you pay him?
and assuming we give a contract based on his 'potential' where do you see him stacking up in the next few years?
It's almost a guarantee if JV hits the open market he's getting a max deal. So hopefully we can negotiate with him to sign for a little less than the max. But I don't think it'll happen
Would be great to sign him to the Kanter deal now.
Nah the warlord's gonna lock up JV with a fair deal. the selling point will be he gets to be in the room when MU fires Casey.
Guys, again, the Kanter deal is nowhere near JV's max deal. So "a little below Kanter" and "max or close to it" are two very, very different things.
If Ross AND DD are let go, and JJ and Scola walk, then the best I can project for the Raps based on the 89M cap prediction from the NBA is 25.3M. That's enough (barely) for a max offer to a mid-career FA (not RFA, not 10+ years) like DeMar or Durant, etc.
It's not going to be just 1 guy let go. It will be a couple to several. And if JV or Ross get extended this summer then we're back to too little cap room to play with the big boys (read: most of the league). If both get extended we're looking at more like 15M in cap room, if DeMar walks.
