    Taj Gibson -- SIGNS WITH MIAMI

    Good evening Taj,

    First of all we'd like to thank you for your time. We are building a contender here in New York but have a really young team. We see you as an ideal candidate to come and be a veteran presence both on and off the court. You are still a very productive player as well which is why we're letting you know of our interest this early in the process. Our cap space is currently tied up in two max offers to Kyrie and Kawhi, but we'd have some cap space left over and you are the guy we'd like to target with it. We envision you getting plenty of minutes at the backup PF spot and also getting minutes when we go with a small ball lineup in which you would get some burn as the primary big.

    Our offer to you is a 4 year deal starting at $5,677,322 with 5% raises. We'd like to make it very clear that we don't mean to insult or low-ball you, if that is even how you perceive our offer. That is literally what we have at our disposal (after signing two max contracts which is the plan). If you have interest in playing for us, let us know.

    Sincerely,
    The Knicks FO

    The Knicks

    Good evening Taj,

    We were able to get a little more wiggle room and want to raise our offer to a 4 year deal starting at $10,368,791 with 5% raises. We really value your leadership qualities and your two-way play and view you as the ideal partner to backup Lauri.

    Hey Taj,

    After our most recent trade our cap situation has fluctuated, as has our roster. We're still very much interested in bringing you on board, and would like to offer you all of the remaining MLE that we have.

    $7,285,712 over 4 years with 5% max increases

    Taj will wait on an offer for the full MLE; he's pretty sure he'll get it.

    Hi Taj,

    We were the first team to show interest in you from the very beginning and we still maintain the same level of interest in bringing you to New York. We believe you fit our team like a glove. We are waiting on Kyrie Irving to decide on our offer, and then we are prepared to offer you our full MLE. We will check back in with you shortly.

    Hey Taj,

    We wanted to reach back out and offer you all of our available MLE starting at $8,621,422 over four years with 5% max increases. We'd love to have you here in Phoenix. You'd be a key player off the bench and would spend minutes with both Chris Paul and Devin Booker.

    Likes the fit, but thinks he might get a full MLE offer. If not, he'll sign in Phoenix.

    Hey Taj,

    We're not able to offer the full MLE, we're about 600k short. What we can offer though is a full NTC. This would allow you to not worried about instantly getting flipped for another guy, and getting traded down the line after you've settled down in Phoenix. Moving is stressful, expensive and not enjoyable for anyone. We feel that this addition adds more value than an extra 600k ever would. Will Sacramento match this NTC offer? Will they even elaborate on how many years they're offering? Who knows?!
