    The blockbuster deal of the off-season. The guy has never been an all-star, never led the league in scoring.

    Well now we know unless Conley secretly loves the Knicks he wasn't going to sign with us.

    Said all along they were going to resign and we had no shot. Quoted their GM directly mos before free agency stating they would follow through on their plan. Good for Conley way overpaid but I'm not mad. He was a bargain for at least half the time of his last deal which was 5yrs $45mil.

    Again depending on his contract it's a concern, but damn that starting five for us would be intriguing.

    I said in the "D Rose gets traded to Knicks" thread that Conley will prove to be the most over paid free signed this off season, while Mozgov and Evans are a close 2nd, Conley is making money per year that only Jordan and Kobe ever saw!

    Honestly the way these guys are getting paid today, its really making me like the NBA a little less. I mean, I am all for players receiving their due, but, there are contracts that are just simply unjustifiable, and its going to effect the game before long.

    My hope is that if enough of these guys do not play to the level of compensation, and teams do not approach with this wreck less approach again.

    Look us paying a 31 year old Noah 18 million per is a bit absurd, but its actually mild to what has happened today.

    Help me understand this, If I hit the lotto tomorrow, I would have more money to spend, but does it mean I'm going to spend 85k on a Honda Civic! My point is, the increased salary cap, shouldn't have equated to increased player value! Lebron, KD, Steph, and Westbrook, are players that should get whatever the max salary is, but not everyone in the NBA deserves a pay raise!

    I get why Silver wanted to slowly increase the cap, versus an explosion, because this is bad for business. SMH

    Yeah it's pretty ridiculous. Let's not forget about Conley's injury history.

    I'd be happy making the rookie minimum.

    Bucks were the other team, this is a soft threat by Wade he's still vacationing...he's basically telling Riley hurry up and get me paid before the waters dry up. If he wants $20mil+ we're not in his picture. Wade and Riley always playing games with each other.

    Parsons deal was pretty disgusting of all the contracts thus far. At least Conley is a major reason the Grizzlies are relevant and have been a threat. Parsons got a $100mil deal

    Yeah I don't get it. Unless Riley/Wade is trying to do something such as making the Knicks and Bucks wait and miss out on another player Riley wants to sign along with Wade, I don't get the game here. Maybe Wade feels the Bucks and Knicks are more enticing from a basketball stand-point at the moment and New York could get him a lot of money outside of his NBA contract with them (don't know if it'd be better even with taxes).

    Grizz signed Parsons to a 94M deal. Why would they want EG? I'd say the odds favor the Knicks in signing EG.

    No it's another offseason of Riley and Wade *****footing and temper tantruming with each other. There's nothing to see here.

    It is being reported by @ESPNSteinLine that the Knicks have made a four-year offer to Courtney Lee. So about Dwyane Wade.....

    Phil was like, "yeah, sure Wade has interest in the Bucks"
