    I'm positive on Giannis until the very second he chooses to stay/go elsewhere. Or Masai becomes a mere mortal ....

    To me it’s all about results. We landed the biggest fish in the pond that off-season, it makes no difference to me how, unless we gave up the farm, which we didn’t. In this case, we unloaded DD, who is impossible to build a team around.... major win-win.

    The bigger point is: if Masai thinks he can land Giannis, then I’m believing in pipe dreams.
    Not saying Giannis will happen, but lets be honest, the Kawhi trade was also a pipe dream when discussions were going on.

    Difference is, Kawhi came via trade. The real dreamy scenario is how little we paid for him.

    Fred + Oladipo + OG + Siakam + Serge
    or
    Fred + Norm + OG + Siakam + Adams

    I think either of those teams coached by Nurse plus guys like TD off the bench would be be in the ECF conversation/contending for quite a few years.
    i would prefer fred + norm + OG + siakam + serge and whatever quality depth we could acquire not splurging on someone like oladipo. i would also hesitate to let go of serge. it's a lot easier to find a screen and dive man like adams than one who shoots threes.

    If you got Siakam and add Giannis, you're pretty much set. Just need to make sure you got some bench depth and roster balance, but given their ages and what they already accomplished, it would have dynasty written all over. A starting lineup of Fred +OG +Siakam + Giannis is already nightmarish defensively. You add an average centre (draftee or ring chaser vet) to run some pnr with Fred, and the offence is now also balanced and high octane with that kind of talent and athleticism on the wing.

    Giannis odds are paradoxical to me. I feel the odds of him leaving the Bucks are extremely low BUT if he actually decided to leave, the odds of the Raptors being the team he goes to (vs other teams) are actually not bad at all. All-in-all, I also see it as a pipe dream, and we gotta broaden our look to other UFA's. Everyone is a big step down from Giannis but failing that, I think you look at Oladipo, or even a Steven Adams.

    Masai has made it a habit to stay cap neutral for 2021. I don't think he'll break that for Serge and Marc.. but I also still think we can bring them both back on large 1+1 deals. Term of course is important especially when guys get hurt all the time. But this season will suck for free agents because the cap is going to come down. If they wait a year they might get paid more.

    I think we should overpay to keep Marc and Serge for the year. Give them each $20M deals and then look at the landscape in 2021. If Giannis stays (which seems likely) then we bring Marc and Serge back again or look for another player to replace them (like Gobert).

    The problem has never been Serge or marc right now, gasol is clearly the superior player. But his window his closing fast. His brother declined at 36 and went off a cliff at 38. Marc will turn 36 during next season. You're hoping to squeeze 2 more years out of his old banged up body.

    Serge on the other hand is 30 and you could argue had lowkey the best year of his career last year. They're very different players that have fairly different roles and have already shown they can play together in the new nba, in a perfect world you keep both. Although I'm just a dreamer and think we're losing at least one.

    Harris has fallen off a bit this year. If we're targeting Denver players then I'd rather go after Will Barton.
    Ya i know but i dont really think its a skill level thing. I have watched alot of Nuggets games this year more that 80% of Denver offense is Murry/jokic pick and pops and rolls.
    Harris is relugated to standing in the corner or weak side. His defense is still elite one the the best guard defenders in the league and can guard 1s or 2s. I think he will be like Oladipo if he ever leaves the nuggets.
    His stuggles only benefit the next team who gives him a contract as he going to have to take a pay cut

    Gary Harris is the oladipo like player i would be looking at.
    Pascal-Giannis-Harris. Both are 2 way player. All line up with primes and Harris should be cheaper as he had to take a back seat to Jokic and Murray.

    And that's the strongest case for Masai to not throw everything at 2021 FA and keep working with what looks to be a fair bit of talent already on the roster. Keep what you can, keep developing these guys, keep making good transactions and draft picks, somehow Masai keeps running out a winning team and has generally good contracts and is ready to pounce if anything comes up like the Kawhi trade did. Keeping at that strategy may be better option. I'd lean in that direction but wouldn't be mad at going as hard as possible at 2021 FA either. There's a plan that makes sense on some level either way.
