I would love to amnesty perkins then s&t martin but since he isnt getting a max deal I dont see why he or another team would do that. It just scares me cause you see other teams in the west getting better (on paper) and we're getting worse.
actually, you have to keep in mind that even if we amnesty perk (unlikely imo) we won't be able to add a free agent for more than the mid level exception (5M). We're over the salary cap (but under luxury cap).
With as much interest for him, i don't see Kevin Martin coming back to okc for 5M or less...
and i don't see any notable FA coming for this. That's also why everybody around the thunder say that free agency will be very quiet. Expect a 3rd Pg and that's all (and pray taht it won't be fish, unless scotty will play him 45min .... smh !
If we did a sign and trade on martin we would be able to get comparable salary back. Dont see the benefit for another team since he is a free agent unless they want to just get him and get rid of a contract that they dont need anymore. Example would be amnesty perk then sign martin to around an 8 million dollar*deal, then trade him and 2014 1st for say austin rivers/greves vasquez and robin Lopez.
Well if KMart is signed and traded he wont count towards another teams exceptions, so they could use those on other players. Im sure we wont get much for it but a 2nd round pick means we could use it on a guy that falls or take another stash guy. Either way just gives us another asset.
