    Default "The Lou Williams Situation"

    According to reports everyone wants our six man of the year

    Unfortunately a lot of teams have cap space so we are kinda fucked in that regard.

    Also...he doesn't need us to get a better deal

    Also...I really don't want him here although he had his moments.

    The main page says Kings, Nets, Knicks and Lakers are interested

    Knicks and Lakers can sign him outright


    Kings, I would totally do Stauskus and 6th pick for him
    Nets, Jack, Teletovic and 29th pick
    Knicks, Calderon #4 for Lou Williams and Terrence Ross
    Lakers we can do fuck all about as there is no way in hell they trade the 2nd pick
    Cavs are totally going to make the second round this year and this signature has always been here and has never been anything else.

    Nets need to shed contracts. Hope to God he ends up playing with Kobe and Nick Young

    If raps can return anything for Lou as part of a trade, that is a huge win.

    I'm thinking the only chance we have is if a capped out team wants him. You are probably right though, we will either end up overpaying or get nothing

    ^^^^^ This!

    No way can we have both Vasquez and Lou together next season. I can tolerate 1 of them but not both. And the other guard must be a defensive 1st player.

    If teams really do want Lou, it only adds to my current belief on the immediate future of raps:

    There has never been a better time to rebuild than right now.

    That's funny, I got the feeling that Vasquez couldn't tolerate him and Lou being together either.

    As a free agent Lou can only b traded as part of a sign-and-trade during free agency. So even if he was worth any of those high picks (he isn't) it's not possible. The other team could trade the drafted rights I believe, or could trade 30 days after a contract is signed (like Wiggins was last season).

    What interests me not is the number of teams near the top of the who are rumoured to be interested. With rumoured interest from Lakers (2), Knicks (4), Kings (6), and Heat (10), that's four of the top 10 drafting teams that clearly want to compete immediately.

    You don't sign a sixth man like Lou Willians without gunning for a playoff run immediately. Makes me believe all the more that a good number of lottery picks could be available for established players.

    But back on theme: I have no interest in getting into a bidding war for Lou, which is exactly what appears to be where Lou is heading.

    Casey + Lou next season = More ISOs at the end of quarters

    I really want this to change.

    Bebe was the asset in the Atlanta trade that we got. Lou was a gamble who made the money work when we traded Salmons because Atlanta wanted cap space. It turned out we got much more than anticipated out of Lou, and it's at least slightly conceivable we could get a little something out of a sign-and-trade, especially if his asking price vaults up into the 8-10 million range. But if we lose him for nothing, it's not a big deal.

    and a TPE might not be so bad either.

    Lou Williams is expected to receive strong interest from teams that include the Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, providing a clear competition for the Toronto Raptors to retain the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, league sources told RealGM.

    The Raptors and Williams have expressed a mutual interest, and there will be a window early in free agency for Toronto to finalize an agreement that’s viable for the 6-foot-2 guard.

    As one of the most potent scorers on the market, Williams could scan league-wide possibilities of a three-year deal in the range of $27 million or four years for $35 million.
    per Shams Charania of RealGM, who has proven to be pretty reliable.

    If we re-sign Lou for 4/$35... lol. Not because of the contract but because of the signal it sends about Masai's intentions.

    Good God. If those are the other teams interested in his services, maybe take that as a sign that you should let him go.
