Don't let Bryan Colangelo hear about this.... He'll email/call and text Ujiri that its a sexy move.
Stein's take on Bynum: http://espn.go.com/blog/marc-stein/p...-new-team-soon
The inclusion of OKC as a possible suitor, since they have the MLE available and Perkins as their starting C, was interesting. If OKC were to sign him, they'd be into luxury tax territory. I wonder if Toronto could come in with a trade to acquire Perkins and their 2014 1st round pick and/or Lamb, in exchange for a lesser contract?
Salmons would save them a little over $1M this season (pro-rated), but could same them about $8.4M next season, if bought out. There were also rumors about a month ago saying that OKC was looking for a veteran wing, and Salmons has looked a little rejuvenated since the trade to Toronto.
Perkins could be a decent backup/mentor for JV for a season-and-a-half (or less, if traded next season), which could be a worthwhile pickup if it also brings a 1st round pick and/or a prospect like Lamb. The inclusion of Lamb would increase OKC's savings by a little over $2M this season (pro-rated), and would provide further savings the next couple seasons as well.
Just spitballing here...
