But we also sacrifice a huge chunk of our cap space next year. Bennett is owed 6 mill, and we'd be paying this back up center of yours a couple mill too.
Let's just stick with what we've got, use this season for further development and cash our chips next year.
Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.
Hope you're wrong.
Houston and Chicago this summer should be perfect examples of not counting your chickens before they hatch. The best laid plans of Masai and men often go awry.
Here's a list someone put together, but they missed Lee, so there may be others missing.
Apparently Greg Monroe is doing just that... FWIW
Via HoopshypeWhile the Pistons big man has not pursued an offer sheet from another team, he has pursued sign-and-trade possibilities, and Monroe is “definitely” willing to take the one-year qualifying offer worth $5.3 million from Detroit in order to ensure his unrestricted free agency next summer, a source familiar with Monroe’s thinking told The Detroit News.

EDIT: But the player usually forces their way out before that becomes an issue. However put me on the list of people who don't care about the speculation. If he's a Durant level talent then every team in the league who think they have a shot will try, and if he leaves Minny via trade then Wiggins doesn't necessarily have a ton of say in where he goes. I think at most we've got a 10% chance to get him in his prime, and a 5% chance if he's a Durant level player.
Glimmer of hope for those who want it? New CBA. Who knows how player mobility will be affected. Maybe Lebron to Cleveland will be such a big money maker that the NBA institutes a hometown talent clause where every team gets to pick a player from their hometown to rep their city.

And Greg Monroe just did it as well
Ben Gordon is the only one who meets that criteria from this list and now Monroe as well. The point remains - it almost never, ever happens.
