    Has anybody heard of someone using their midlevel to take a contracted player off their roster? I always thought it was a use it or lose it thing.

    But that doesn't mean it expires which was the point.

    I think it is a camp invitee..... which could also be a potential 2 way, or assigned to g league. There are no terms or any details listed other than an agreement was reached.

    Probably got a few grand to come to camp. Pretty typical and no cap impact I think.

    Looked at his stats and he's a monster on the glass for a SG. Sounds like a hard worker more than anything else.

    I think he played the 3 in college. Still boards well for a 3 though tbh. Hes also a sr and weighs near 230. Probably has a lot more strength than the off guards on the roster.

    No way to predict who will suddenly become available. The warriors will also have a better idea what the team needs by then.
    dpe

    Brad wanamakers contract is being count against our midlevel exception. it was not a vets minimum. Now I even dislike the signing more. At the time they signed him- there were still names available. Basically when they signed wanamaker- they took themselves out of the running for guys like Gasol.

    But with the loss of Klay everyone is more or less counting y'all out but I definitely am not especially if Steph ends up putting this team on his back...y'all will no doubt still make the playoffs

    Wiseman also wants to be great according to reports ó and from all account is a very hard worker. Clearly didnít take time off after leaving Memphis

    Yes and no. They may have known they were out of the running for Gasol already. Wanamaker signing has been loved by "experts" so I guess we'll see.

    Still I think the roster spots are the biggest issue, not the money.

    Guaranteed contracts:
    Guards: Curry, Wanamaker, Poole, Bazemore, Thompson
    Forwards: Wiggins, Oubre, Green, Paschall, JTA
    Bigs: Wiseman, Looney, Chris, Smiley

    Partially guaranteed:
    Lee, Mulder

    2nd round draft pick
    Mannion

    That's 14 players on guaranteed contracts, 2 partials, and 1 rookie they talked about signing to the roster, not a 2-way.

    There isn't room for more without a trade.
