    Wizards definitely match the MLE on Portis I would think. Would be amazing if we landed Bojan and Portis though.

    Sounds good to me. Deal. I sign off on behalf of all sides.

    See I would have thought that too but after the Wizards just helped out the Lakers and got some bench guys + cash for no real reason (unless you're super high on Mo Wagner for some reason) I'm starting to question how much they really want to compete this year vs saving cash and tanking. Really not sure what they're trying to do over in Washington but I think it's still worth a flyer as I think the Wizards management might be volatile enough to decline matching his sheet even if it's a decent value deal.

    Someone on twitter pointed out that Bojan somehow only had 1 block last season lol. Didn't know that was even possible.

    You know who I think is an underrated roll finisher? Dwight Powell with the Dallas Mavericks. Just checked though and he still has another year on his deal.

    And another guy whom I wouldn't mind as a backup big might be Larry Nance in Cleveland, but the Cavs locked him up last year with a 4-year extension.

    If we want to take on a project, we could look at Willie Cauley-Stein who is now an UFA. He's not the brightest or most disciplined player, but he has moments where he can be dominant.

    Pretty sure Powell is already confirmed to be getting a 3 year extension with the Mavs but I agree with the sentiment, he's really solid.

    Speaking of Mavs though, I'm pretty confident if Favors goes to FA they'll be tripping over themselves to get a meeting with him. Luka/Porzingis/Favors could be a really good frontcourt.

    JAZZ will meet with Bobby Portis in LA tomorrow. Thoughts?

    Yeah, Favors is the type of big that fits well with Porzingis.

    He's a stretch-shooting 5 who can defend a bit if he's motivated. He played well against us...

    Why? He's really good and would be a great fit here. He's a really good shooter and would be a good 3rd option on offense.

    Marc Stein reported that the Jazz were willing to offer Mirotic 3 years 45M. Thoughts?

    Khem Birch is another athletic big. It looks like the game has really slowed down for him...,

    If we read the tea leaves here, it looks like Butler could end up in Houston, LA or Miami, meaning Philly will probably have to back up the truck for Tobias Harris. The Jazz may have concluded that Tobias is out of reach.

    Bojan is absolutely a perfect fit here , I love favs but come on .

    Everyone thinks 3s with him , but his ability to fake and drive to the basket would be massive for us , add Conley who can shoot , it’s a huge upgrade .

    I think Bojan will get offered a 4yr deal starting at $200K less than Favors' cap number (so Jazz don't have to release Neto or Niang). Other teams can certainly offer more; Jazz aren't going to be able to outbid everyone. The pitch will be to play for a legit contender. Indiana might vie for a 5-8 seed. I guess they could catch Toronto if Kawhi leaves, but Philly, Milwaukee and Boston will all be better than Indiana, with the strong possibility Nets will be too.

    If Bojan joins the Jazz, it's probably between Jazz and Denver for 1st. Portland will hang in there, but I don't think they'll be better than us. And the Lakers, even with a 3rd max FA still have a crappy bench. Of course, that may change with ring chasers joining them.

    As for Portis, I guess they're meeting with him as a Plan B. Hate to release Favors, make an offer to Washington and then they match and keep him or trade him elsewhere.

    I’ll consider your sentiment an endorsement.

    I'd love him, but I think he's not likely to be available. He's at the point of his career that he needs to prioritize money. I don't think we'll be able to give the highest offer.
