I know it's early (4 months before) but for us the future is all we have to look forward to. I'm actually excited to see how Francis plays here (not excited about the deal but just the entertainment value)..back on topic..the offseason is going to be huge.
we have two draft picks (both first rounders DEN/SA). Two expiring contracts, Taylor (9mill) & Rose (15mill). Allans contract will be off the books (thanks to his retirement). Attractive young guys. "star players" in JC, Q, and Francis. WHAT SHOULD WE DO??
There are little rumbilings around the league that we mite shoot for a backup guard with the Mid Level Exception (MLE) Both are NY natives..Mike "the amityville scorer" James and Speedy "king of queens" Claxton.
I will stick to my guns and say we will get KG. A lot of teams will make offers but ppl close to Isiah say he has already compiled a general assumption of what package he will offer for KG in the offseason. and love Isiah or hate him (im in the middle lol) Isiah has piled up (by accident or on purpose) an assortment of catchy players...meaning what ever Minny wants..we have. Expiring contracts. Draft picks. a wide arrangement of talent that contracts can equal KG's in different combos.
im gonna stick to that. BUT there are also other options...Harrington (who i think would rather sign with playoff hopefuls and the hawks want to keep). Miles. even Jermaine O'Neal.
LOGICALLY (wise for both teams & fits salary cap) what moves would you make if you were Isiah in the offseason???
