    Overpaying players is not a problem for me as long as they can deliver the goods consistently when it matters, something PG constantly fails to do [emoji1751]

    Ok, let's say that the Clippers refused to pay him more than the MLE... who else was paying it? I understand that they might be ok paying more, but seems like they were bidding against themselves to do so. We can't sit here and talk about what we think he's worth but I don't see how he was ACTUALLY getting more than the MLE based on the teams who are in position to offer it, which is really only NY at this point since ATL doesn't figure to want another PF.

    Yeah, they could have played hardball. Would it have been worth it when Kawhi can leave next year? It's an overpay. I'm not disputing that but they couldn't afford to lose him. Morris is a bigger part of the team than people her in this thread realize.

    Good point but he can get that MLE from any team he chooses than to get it from a turmoil team such as the Clippers yet he was their most consistently reliable player in the bubble. Without him, they would have won some of those playoff games so they are rewarding him on a job well done.

    I would love to have him on the Sixers for the MLE [emoji7]

    It's an overpay AND it's 4 years for a known headcase. Regardless of the money I would never sign a Morris twin for 4 years as a GM.

    Yes he was a huge part of their success who did not cause friction much like Jerami Grant on the Nuggets during the bubble which they will regret dearly to let him walk than to overpay to keep him as well [emoji1751]

    Now we know how much injuring guys and getting guys ejected is worth.

    Not bad for a guy that can give you 20 points on any giving night. At his age though he may decline but hopefully he stays on top of his game.
