No way would they have to stretch Sato. He's a useful player on an expiring deal.
They could dump him to another cap space team but it would have to be NY or OKC... maybe someone has a trade exception. His contract this year is only $5M guaranteed so if they waive and stretch it the cap hit is like 1.6M instead of $10M. A team like OKC or NY may do it for nothing... they also might give them a second rounder. If not they could just waive the $5M and stretch the remaining amount to clear space for Lonzo or whoever.

I like him... he's useful... I agree. They just might need that space for someone else. Maybe the Lonzo Ball stuff is just a double sign and trade with Lauri.

The more I think about it the more I think the Lonzo deal is a sign and trade with Lauri and they operate over the cap... keep Theis' cap hold on the books. Otherwise I am not sure why they swapped Gafford for Theis last year. Teams do weird **** though so who knows.

They only have around $100 million in contracts so they are a minor deal away from max space. I doubt they dump Sato.

They have like 12M in space then... Max is like $30M... so they'd near to clear like $20M in salary.

That assumes they waive the capholds for everyone including lauri and Theis. So I bet they try and get Lonzo (the guy they have been rumored to love) with a Lauri sign and trade and operate over the cap.

If they want to clear space Sato is gone one way or another... likely Aminu too. I doubt the dump him unless they decide to operate as a cap space team.

You're right. I ran the numbers wrong.

Chicago has to do some contract shedding to go after Lonzo or try to do a sign and trade.

Depended on the opponent. I have seen our defense work just fine in the playoffs and I have seen our defense struggle in the playoffs. Just like basically every team. Teams in the playoffs are better so even great defenses will struggle at times in the playoffs. There are some really good offensive teams that typically make the playoffs.
Memphis was said to have a great defense.... Until they ran into the jazz. Same thing with the clippers. I would have loved to see the bucks try to stop the jazz offense. I don't think they could.

What are your thoughts about how good our defensive has been in the 3rd round of the playoffs?

Don's not here for the Quin slander.

I don’t advocate firing Quin and I think he gets a lot of credit for our success. But there are a couple things that have to be acknowledged and addressed and if we aren’t nuanced with it, we’re creating a blind spot that puts us at reasonably high risk of repeating the same problems. Think DL. A year ago you wouldn’t have had the open narrative about him that you now have, and it’s not that DL is horrible — it’s that he had a couple blind spots that everyone dug their heels in on explaining away and now he’s tweeting from a burner outside Waco.

Yeah and now we’re all gaslit with “oh yeah, it was so obvious, everyone knew.” Well, maybe not to that extent, but you get the idea. Same thing will happen with Quin. The “lolz teir professionels u dumb” last up until they get fired. Or at least until they become consultants.
