    Last nights game reminded me go Game 1 against the Sixers where Pascal went 12 - 15 and 3 - 4 from 3. The Raptors on the strength Pascal (29 its) and Kawhi (45 pts) beat the Sixers 108 - 95 to take a 1 - 0 series lead. Next game Pascal shot 9 - 25 and despite 35 from Kawhi and Kyle with 20 the Raptors lost game 2. Unfortunately no other Raptor scored more than a single bucket. I'm fairly certain we can avoid a similar outcome given how the team is currently playing. Pascal will not go 14 - 17, but Kyle will shoot better than 2 - 9 and Kawhi should improve upon 5 - 14.

    Max contract, 5 years, hopefully signed as a RFA and not via extension.
    So what's that price tag project at right now?

    What makes our team tough to beat is on a night when our two All-Stars did not shoot well, we have player like Pascal and Marc stepping up to score. That offensive depth and tough defence can win no matter who plays for GSW.

    What we can do summer 2020. With his small cap hold on the books, we can retain some of our talent AND go hunting for a max player to add to him and Kawhi. If he signs an extension, that option goes away, because his full salary would be on the books already.
    Will be interesting to see if he wants the extension/certainty this summer. Porzingis wanted the extension while the Knicks wanted him to wait and it caused some friction.

    Kawhi's camp: what is your plan to keep winning?

    Masai: You must not know me. I'm Masai Ujiri, bitch. All I do is win. I am the one who knocks.
    Yeah, but that's MY point. The sales pitch is that the Raptors are fantastically run and Masai will make things good no matter what. Not a promise of a specific big deal or a preemptive big deal to try to sell Kawhi on a talent upgrade for next season.

    Seriously? How about a surprise Masai uber-trade? Or a tinkering trade or signing that works out better than anyone expected? Ujiri already has plans to improve the team and back up plans to his back up plan....
    You have any recent surprise Masai uber-trades on the mind? Seems to me the big deals he has made to really improve the team have been pretty foreseeable, even if he managed to pay a surprisingly low price.

    Small moves to reduce tax considerations and maybe get some cheap talent that maybe pays off is all great. Masai will definitely do all that. None of that will be part of the pitch, though. Even a trade or signing that works out better than expected doesn't help with a pitch until, you know it works out better than expected. Can't prove that out on July 1st.

    So it's either a big trade at the draft (which is exceedingly unlikely) or you pitch what you have and your future plans.

    The pitch was obvious from the start: come back with the same cast (bunch of solid vets and a few promising younger role players) for another run, then the year after we have loads of cap room to lure a star or keep the team together, whichever he prefers.

    What we didn't expect at the start of the year was to be able to add "budding star already on team" to that pitch.

    Not sure how they even go about pitching more than keeping the band together for next season.
