@Elizah Huge So, the circumstances are totally different. John Collins was drafted in 2017, the same year as Donovan. He got his deal a year later, which means the Hawks DID play hardball with him and refused to give him a max last summer when they could have. He still didn’t get the full max contract. See, the entire reason the Jazz had the leverage to say no player option to Donovan is they gave him a full max, gave it a year early(this is the reason why teams have never given out player options, they give the contract a year earlier than they have to to have that leverage), they also gave him the easiest path to a supermax (Collins didn’t get that) and a trade kicker(Collins also didn’t get that). So all this shows me is you don’t know how contracts work.
Btw y’all, here’s Donovan’s latest like on Twitter:
Keep fighting that the PO was a good thing, you have 2 more years to watch him on your team before he asks for a trade instead of 3. Exactly what I said was going to happen will end up happening, and you’ve got half the time left as the amount of time he’s already been here and he’s going to be a dark cloud over the organization the entire time. Enjoy.
Nope. Don’t think we have interest in such things.Hearing the S&T that would land Spencer Dinwiddie in Washington, from Brooklyn, could happen as soon as today/tomorrow. It’s expected to be a multi-team trade, possibly expanding across 6-8 different franchises (thus the reason things are taking so long) - Twitter
Can we sneak in??
