120% $58M was the extension limit. Here is an article that describes those limits/reasonsI tried to look this up and am still confused. One of the reasons the Spurs are trading Poeltl is that they can only offer him the 120% raise so 4 years at 58 million. Poeltl as declined that contract. Is the acquiring team in the same position as the Spurs as far as the contract? If so, doesn't that lower his value and make him a candidate for any team since the acquiring team cannot resign him unless they have cap space?
He'd be a UFA and they have the room to pay him. BUT the Spurs may not want to pay him $20M+/yr in free agency since it looks like a multi-year re-build is in the works (Victor luck withstanding)
Sill like the Warrior's odds (or Miami) to land Poeltl ahead of Boston
Very, very outside shot, but maybe Brad/Zarren get creative with the '28 pick swap. For matching purposes, they could add a 3rd team like Utah
Spurs: Pritchard, Gay, turn '28 swap into a Boston '25 lightly protected 1st
Depends on how the Spurs (or other teams) value Pritchard and the opportunity to extend him on the cheap this summer.
