it could be Duncan too.

Shamet's deal has more upside than THT... if he starts hitting threes at a 40%+ clip and shows a little more on-ball then you have two additional guaranteed years you can decide. THT either sucks (most likely) and signs up for another year of sucking... or he plays well and bails or gets a raise.

Yeah, I completely disagree.

The problem with that is they have to guarantee him before free agency so if they have a deal lined up sure I guess. This is a trash deal anyway you spin it. Only purpose was to save money.
And DA really likes him.

Also it makes the Pistons more likely to win more games than us, or at least more likely than they were prior to the trade.

We may be able to get him to push the date back... it happens frequently. But I bet I can predict how this plays out.

We make all this noise about being FA players... then we say we tried but it didn't work out... but at least we got KO that we can keep around. We operate at the salary floor so Ryan saves some dough... all of Jazzfanz will live in denial that we make money moves. Its kinda the first few years of DL playbook type of thing.

Well its a fact homie... if THT opts in to his deal next year its because he proved he isn't worth 10M a year... if we exercise Shamet's option its because he outplayed his annual figure. If you think THT has more overall potential than Shamet that is cool... but realize him showing that potential means he getting paid or walking... which puts a big *** cap on his "upside".

I'm really confused as to why THT playing so well that he becomes worth more than his current contract is a bad thing.

We could lose him, or we could be the team that gets to keep him. I'll take that over having an overpaid 3pt specialist.
