How eager do we imagine Knicks are to clear space? Burks and Reddish combined fit into the exceptoin, and while there's questions on both it's an interesting way to use the slot---and to both add guys who can do something for the team and keep alive salary slots.
I'd guess that if all else (e.g. upgrade types who require sending out an asset) fails, they will just take on a salary dump opportunity late--Duncan Robinson/Kennard/Fournier himself being some examples....guys who add a bit of value and are overpaid and who also keep alive the 'salary slot'
Who has the contracts & picks to get Simmons at $35 mil? Presumably, the Nets even in blow it up mode might choose to let him play for a month or two before they trade him to re-establish value.
A shame Joe Harris' salary is $150k above the TPE+wiggle room....he'd be a great get.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
