    Rubio would be a FA the same year as KL. They could sign RR after KL and exceed the cap.

    Only with the MLE or less. They'd have to renounce his Bird Rights as the cap hold would be insane.

    I'm still not a believer anyway.

    On Gameday this morning, Greenberg said that Donovan was the ROY and Bills called him the next Westbrook.

    And yes, Kawhi on the Jazz would be 100% Jazz-worthy. I get a little movement just thinking about it

    Greenberg actually said that
    Ben Simmons is more deserving than Donovan Mitchell for NBA rookie of the year. please take time to read his article here

    Leonard isn't a UFA until 2020, but there are rumblings that Leonard wants out of SA. If they decide to trade him before he hits free agency, DL's relationship with SA could obviously pay huge dividends.

    Dare to dream.

    Biggest issue with the rumors is that the reasoning behind wanting to leave is because SA isn't a major market, and doesn't attract FA. Utah obviously isn't going to appeal to him if the rumors are true.

    I highly doubt it's a question of market, I think it has everything to do with being able to assemble top-end talent, whatever the factors are.

    DM is a ****ing factor and you can believe that. So is all of the love, synergy, excitement, and brilliance in this organization.

    Why would he need to attract free agents if he already has Donovan and Rudy though?

    I get it. It's also been discussed that Kawhi's Uncle is his agent who's a total douche and he's all about trying to push Kawhi to LA/NY/BOS etc for more endorsement opportunities. Who knows though. We can dream.

    Are you including cap holds? To have a max slot available, Jazz would likely need to let Dante go and have primarily rookies and minimum salary players next year fill out the roster.

    Without Dante, the Jazz would have 6 players at $45M in 2019. Add in this year's pick ~$2m. And a 1st in 2019. So 8 players at ~ $48M. Not sure what Rubio's cap hold will be. Probably around $20M Then I believe you have to add in minimum roster spots up to 13 players. So that's roughly $80M.

    Again, that's no Dante and no one to replace Favors at PF other than Crowder and rookies or someone on an expiring contract who gets renounced.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Jazz don't need to do much, just not spend dumb money. If they just let dudes walk they're set (and they can, Favors is cool but not critical, Dante is a non-factor).

    I guess it comes down to whether or not you think Utah can - for the first time in the history of the franchise - attract a star in free agency. I don't see Kwahi or Klay or the equivalent choosing Utah.

    And if that's not the case, then DL should use his assets to go after a starting PF and shore up the bench. I think Utah has a better shot at bringing in a fringe all-star type via trade than they do of having a star select them in free agency.
