    Doesn't matter when. We can't get him if we kept everyone.
    Realistically we won't get him.
    Our cap space is next summer so the only way we make a play for him is if Masai signs a ton of 1 year deals next summer. Novak coming off the books in 2016. And Amir would have to take a very friendly deal.

    We'll have Lowry at 12, Derozan with a player option at 9.5, JV and Ross are RFA's so whatever their cap holds are, Bebe and Bruno's rookie deals (about 3M combined), whatever Amir resigns to and whatever we sign Vasquez and Patman to.
    Only way we land Durant is a S&T which means he'd have to demand to play for Toronto in which we'd probably give up a package starting with Ross and picks.

    OR we somehow convince Vasquez and Patman to resign a one year deal, sign Durant and basically round out our roster with rookies and minimum contracts so our roster is Lowry, DD, KD, Ross, JV, Bebe, Bruno and rooks/minimum contracts.

    I would LOVE to have KD but it'll be tough to get him.

    Meant to say sign Vasquez and Patman to two year deals. Can't edit on mobile.

    Lowry: $12M
    DeRozan: $14-15M
    Caboclo: $2M
    Valanciunas: $8-9M
    Noguira: $2M
    Ross: $7M
    Vasquez: $7M
    Johnson: $10M
    Patterson: $6M
    3 more first round picks: $5M total
    Looks like I hit the nail right on the head with Patterson, except the question is how much will he be worth after this 3 year contract?
    your pal,

    Much more. He's a glue guy as an UFA he could get 10M to a team looking for a title when he's 27. Similar to Milsap.

    This team definitely has direction.

    You want an example of no direction? Look at Colangelo's first year to his last year.
