I doubt minutes will be a priority, since he’ll know the Celtics are matching basically any reasonable offer. The RFA market for these types of guys never gets too hot, since it’s hard to be high enough on them to give an offer that makes their home team blink.OK, thanks for explaining.
He's a RFA after this year if I remember correctly. Not sure he's going to sign a team-friendly 4 year deal as I assume he'll try to find some team who will give him minutes.
For that reason, it’s more likely than not that his contract ends up decently team-friendly, since no one wants to waste cap space on a guy who is getting snap-matched.
The really interesting question is whether he shows enough that you want him on your playoff roster. I can absolutely see some cases where an extra PG is important, even if just for a short-term injury.
Brad has shown zero interest in ever playing Poirier to this point, so I’m guessing he’d be the odd man out if it comes to that. The team has probably filed him as salary ballast at this point.
