Here’s one that’ll rile up a whole bunch of you.
I can see the end coming for Pops.
(Don’t throw things, hear me out)
Later this month, right around the 20th, I believe, maybe a couple of days later, his contract becomes fully guaranteed if he’s still on the roster.
And with it looking more and more like they’ll need the flexibility of a roster spot, either for a trade, maybe a third point guard, maybe a big, I can certainly see that spot being created by his departure.
This has as much to do with money as ability – there is no one else they can waive and save money doing it – so it might turn out to be the logical move.
