Tobias Harris

There are enough whispers to have a thread for the dude. Philly will hopefully be eliminated on Sunday. Jimmy Butler has been great and I'd be shocked if he wasn't offered the max from the Sixers. On the same note, I can't imagine Harris getting the max after a second round exit, and he didn't particularly assert himself in the playoffs or on the star studded team.

But you'd have to think he'd look amazing on the Jazz. And fills a huge need.

So cap experts: Is renouncing Favs and letting Rubio go enough to offer him a 4 year max? He is 26 years old, and fits our timeline and team just about perfectly.

If we have maxed out or cap room and now have Gobert Mitchell and Harris as the foundation pieces, how would you want to fill out the rest of the team?

MLE on a PG seems obvious, but I want to hear thoughts, and how the math works.

Also, no one is opposed to this scenario if it becomes available, right?

I'm certainly on board. I mean getting Harris is like a best case scenario dream come true type situation for the jazz imo.

I believe that Jazz going to have 28 mil of space in that case. Not sure if it's enough. Also no MLE in that case. Only Room Exception which is under 5 mil and only 2 year contract can be offered. Good luck signing any decent PG for that.

Renouncing Favs + Rubio has to get us pretty close, close enough that we could maneuver around draft time to firmly get there before FA starts.

Favors is a really interesting piece; the deadline for exercising team options is about a week before FA opens. Can't imagine we hold onto him if we have a max-level target we feel likely to land, but the FO really values Favs. Gonna be interesting.

I'm merely responding to OP's post/question. Your one-liners aren't informative or funny. Try harder.
You said good luck signing a good pg. I said we already have one. I was responding to your post.
I wasn't trying to be funny or informative.

If it why this board cries for Kemba, Holiday or Conley ?

Mitch is a SG.
I wasn't talking about Mitchell though he would do just fine as a point guard.
The reason people want holiday, kemba or Conley is because getting more talent is always a good thing.

We have a good small forward, a good power forward, and a good center but I still have desire for guys like Durant, kahwi, embiid and jokic.

Just because you have a good point guard doesn't mean you wouldn't want more good point guards.

Bucks have bledsoe and brogdan for example. They are probably going to the NBA finals

I'd be looking at Darren Collison, Patrick Beverley, Alex Caruso, Tyreke Evans, Rodney Hood, or George Hill to take Rubio's minutes. I think we need a guy like Hood or Evans as our sixth man, with a starting backcourt of Mitchell/Royce.

I think we probably need at least one pure PG... but I also think that we could have Harris/Ingles/Mitchell as facilitators in a starting lineup and probably do just fine.
