    It's hard for me to take Doug Smith seriously. He lost his insight into the team once Colangelo got fired and Masai cleaned house. And from the quote it seemed like he was just providing his own observation and isn't presenting any kind of fact.

    Let's hope he's right about Bobby and wrong about Masai. A short term deal for Masai would actually really suck. That's literally one foot out the door then.
    The Seattle NBA expansion with Tim Lieweke recruiting Masai makes a ton of sense. After stoking the expansion fires recently, Adam Silver just announced that they wouldn’t be looking at expansion again until 2022. Masai has probably been waiting on clarity of timing before re-upping. He’ll be like Lebron and keep signing a 1+1 every year, Lol.

    Maybe, maybe not. If I were him I'd certainly leave my options open....doesn't mean I'd necessarily leave but I would want the bargaining power if nothing else, especially cause you can only play that card once or twice and then ownership is going demand a commitment one way or another. He's in the driver seat now but that doesn't last forever.....
    I can see Masai maintaining his bargaining power. His stock has never been higher right now, doesn't make sense to lock himself up long term unless it's a sweetheart deal. If Masai wants ownership stake, MLSE should be falling over themselves to get this done, which I hope is the case.

    Apologies if this has already been posted. Believed Bobby's deal is done and closing in on a short-term deal for Masai
    If the give Webster a 3-5 year deal and Masai takes a 1 year extension, it doesn't instill much confidence frankly

    awesome link. Hopefully it's true. Good news
    it's good news about bobby but not sure about masai. the quote makes it sound like he's biding his time for a better opportunity, though i have no idea who jonah sidel is or how reliable his sauces are

    Nah, Masai took his swings at re-signing Kawhi then at Giannis and he whiffed and it cost the team some lost opportunity. Some of you guys who are now blaming Masai for a middling team are glossing over his two attempts in the last two years to get top 5 players here. Those attempts came with a cost.

    He could have played it safe, secured more talent (but not top 30 talent), but he swung for the fences and here we are. Presumably working their way back to the plate for the next swing.

    I won't even bother speculating what he does next, I have no idea.
    To be fair, when you swing and miss, you gotta be prepared to take the heat for the whiff .....

    This is why I was all in on the idea of trading for Paul George and even Westbrook to entice Kawhi to stay.
    Even if Kawhi decided to leave, PG and Westbrook would have been really good trade pieces. A lot better than what we have now.
    ya westbrook netted the NBA's worst asset of the last half decade or so, plus a heavily protected pick. ka-ching!

    just think of what PG could get fetch if he has another bubble performance with 4 years and $190 000 000 left on his deal.

    should be sweet

    Torontos as good a place as any for a platform for his work. And if teachers pensions can be owners why not masai. I think hes gonna want to get this team out of the mud and at the top again. It would kinda look bad if he left now

    Bobby Webster could be great, but he could also turn out to be the FVV of GMs, i.e., we have no idea if he can run a team without elite talent to bail him out.
