Raps I would think would be in the lead. They can pay more and he'll struggle to find a better team where he can be the clear leader.

I'm of the belief that he needs another superstar to play with. One of his concerns in San Antonio was getting a big time free agent superstar to come and join.

Toronto seems like the same situation in that regards. And if we're talking about talent level, I feel going from the Raps to the Clips is basically a lateral movement. Great playoff run in the West but they won't come out of the West.

Being in the East has for recent history been an easier path to later rounds, so that may be a factor.

The list of good teams with good owners, front offices, depth, talent, max cap space, another super star who is looking to be 2nd to Kawhi is how many teams? I can't think of a single one.

I know Masai will be able to build a championship team around him. He builds winners. I think it's Toronto or LA.

Lakers!!!! Everyone is sleeping on it just like they were with Lebron last year! Kawhi will sign with the Lakers after talking to Lebron... Kawhi will be 1a and Lebron 1b, they will form the best duo in the NBA and we'll have a legitmate team that can challenge the Warriors.

I’d say the Clippers are the most likely destination. They’re in LA which he reportedly wanted. The Free Agent pitch will be made by Doc and West, both highly respected. And he’d be the clear cut leader of the team.

Raps are a close second, I think the east is appealing and he enjoyed his time there. I just don’t know if they’ll ever be able to get over the hump.

If Gasol didn't play like crap the first 2 games it is probably 2-1 raptors right now instead of the other way around. I don't think he needs a 2nd superstar to make it out of the east, but to beat the warriors he probably does, especially if Kd returns from injury.

if lebron wasnt there he would 100 percent be a laker this year... that is the difference... he wont go there with lebron. I wish he would because you would smash the warriors...

Who is the 2nd superstar on the Raptors? But Brooklyn has good young talent. Kawhi would not have to carry the load he has to carry in Toronto.

DLO, Allen, Levert, Dinwiddie, Harris. Hollis-Jefferson (probably gone, though I selfishly hope not) is a versatile defensive guy. Ed Davis. Kurucs looks promising.

Siakim is better then all those dudes. OG is a nice young piece. Raps will have 70 million coming off of Marc-Lowry-Serge next off-season. Throw in 10 plus for FVV. They can build around Kawhi and Siakmi in '20 and possibly add another max guy. Powell's contract is moveable as well. They can still be contenders and better then the Clipper and Nets with him for next year. Updrage the pieces around Leonard and Siakim in '20. Even in '19 they have flexibility to improve if need be with all the massive expirings.

He is staying in Toronto 75-80 percent.

There isn't one, so the appeal of the Nets over the Raps is limited. That was the point.

And Davis is a UFA too isn't he? And Siakam is better than any of the Nets.

In that order


It should be noted that while the West is still stronger; the East (in particular the Atlantic) might become a meatgrinder if Durant moves over to NY... That could make the entire division as conference contenders (Toronto, Boston, Philly, New York/Brooklyn)

They have enough cap space for 1.5 stars, but I do agree with him going to the Clippers. They'll have roughly $60M which was what they had in mind when they traded Harris away. Leonard is going to get $35M a year and I'm not sure Butler would sign for $25M.

I could be wrong of course, but I don't think Kawhi cares about the public perception that the Nets and Clippers are jokes of franchises that are afterthoughts compared to the other teams in their respective markets. LA and NY might only care about the Lakers and Knicks, respectively, but from a basketball perspective, the Clippers and Nets appear to be better situated. That said, if the Clippers or Nets were to sign Kawhi without making any other big moves, its hard to see those teams being better than Toronto is currently.

Clippers would make sense. They're a better team than the Lakers and they don't have Lebron. Not many star players want to play with Lebron. Remember when the hype was all about Paul George going to Lakers? Lebron signs and George re-signs with the Thunder. Ballmer isn't afraid to spend money either while the Laker franchise is in disarray.

As a bucks fan I agree. That being said, San Antonio would have still been a contender with him. So I doubt being a contender is his sole criteria. And kawhi is showing that he's so good, most teams can become contenders pretty quickly if he's around. This Toronto team is pretty decent around him, but LAC, for example, should be able to put together a crew that isn't that big of dropoff from his supporting cast in Toronto.

But ultimately, kawhi is just a giant wild card. I dont think anyone really has a good feel on what he's doing. To me it always felt like he was leaving no matter what but that winning a ring or at least being pretty competitive in the finals could be the one thing that tips the scales and that's the point they're at.

I guess I don't see how that's worse case. There's definitely a non-zero chance that he flat out walks away from Toronto. Not saying it's for sure going to happen or that it's even likely to happen, but to think there's not a chance is just wrong. And I'm not saying like dumb and dumber 1 in a million chance, there's a decent chance kawhi walks.

Spurs ****ed up with him on a respect scale. The way he moved on the court, especially at the beginning of the season proved he was right to sit out last year. I think there are lots of strong points for him to stay. Contender, great management, great fans, 5th year option and the ability to mold his own team in 20 after 80 plus come off the books in salary. Yeah there is a chance he leaves but I am really confident he will stay. Easy bet for me and I'll take those odds. The 1 and 1 sounds reasonable after raps make the finals as well. There will be over 100 million coming off including him if he opts out in 20.

I wouldn't be upset if he left, but it's not like the arguement that he could leave is some biased, hopeful take. Woj has said that Toronto is in serious consideration, which is far from saying it's a lock, and no one else with any knowledge of the situation had indicated that it's a lock either. Vegas isn't perfect, but the oddsmakers are usually pretty locked in with the current rumors and discussions, so the fact that Toronto is only 2nd in odds would seem to indicate its far from a sure thing he stays.

Also, if you think a 1+1 style deal favors the raptors, it would actually be the one situation that would hurt the raptors. A 1+1 removes any financial incentive to stay with Toronto. Not that he won't sign a deal like that with Toronto, but you can't argue that one of the advantages of Toronto is financial incentive and then say a 1+1 deal makes sense.

1 plus 1 is fine. If he leaves in 20. They have a tonne of cap for the rebuild. Gives the team another run to make money and jump start the rebuild and reboot.

It actually coincides with Lowry Marc ibaka fvv and others expiring. It could be a good selling point for him to take another run or give the core another run before he explores his options again.

Ideally we want to lock him up and I think that's where it's headed but a 1 plus 1 isn't the end of the world.

Remember the goal tend he had on Oladipo in the playoffs. That was last year. They called it a block but it was a goal tend. Okadipo was literally killing Paul George last year when they played. Bron got on him and wouldn’t let him score anymore. He will always be able to do at least what Draymond Green can do when he chooses to.

Last thing the Nets need to do is sign max guys like this, have a 3 yr window, and then when they leave everything is over and the franchise is then set back another 5 years.

They have the youth and talent to grow. Resigning D-Lo (even if its a max) and signing Kawhi would be the best move they could make. D-Lo proves that he is coachable and at 23 he has room to grow.

If the nets cant get Kawhi, Id love to see them grab Paul Millsap

I didn't claim The Warriors would be the best defense in the NBA next year. And all I did say was that LeBron and McGee are the weak points in that fantasy lineup.

It seems his Uncle makes a majority of the decisions and it’s all about if he makes a percentage or a flat fee. If it’s a percentage, I can’t see Uncle passing on that extra Toronto $50 million (correct number there?). If he’s just getting a flat fee for his work, I assume he wants the crew in LA (or possibly NYBrooklyn). Add to that, if Kawhi’s lady really wants LA, and all of his entourage are getting the same amount of money, he’s LA bound.

I hope he’s smart with his money. These leeches pick these dudes apart.

Do guys pay their friends just to hang around and do stuff for them? Like yo go get some lunch for us.

If Toronto wins it all, Kawhi and his people should seriously consider running it back for another year on a 1+1 deal.

I think they will.

Kawhi will end up on the Lakers.

The League and the Raps organization are trying o brainwash him, which I feel is very under handed.

But as long as he stays true to himself, he will end up where he wanted to be in the 1st place; and thats in LA, with the Lakers.


Do you think he goes to the Heat.... discounted ?!!

:nod:

That would be nice.

Brain wash him ? The minute Toronto traded for him, it became a year of trying to retain him. The motive was always transparent.

Kawhi doesn’t want to play along side Lebron. Davis does though.

Yeah, some do. Hopefully it’s just his Uncle/agent and his girl.

Lakers!!!! Everyone is sleeping on it just like they were with Lebron last year! Kawhi will sign with the Lakers after talking to Lebron... Kawhi will be 1a and Lebron 1b, they will form the best duo in the NBA and we'll have a legitmate team that can challenge the Warriors.

LeBron won't be able to consistently defend... but he would be 1a

He's definitely staying unless he hates cold (which is a possibility)
