He's going to get a big contract. The only question is how much.

Pick and rolls with him in the past have always been scary because they usually end up in a turnover. This year they have been successfully hooking up with him a lot more. He has turned into a bad ass guy. He can still be soft around the rim and he can be pretty ferocious around the rim. Definitely a max contract. Like how max?

Well it will be a lot lower than the max contract this last summer, that is for sure.

Why? Because the Suns will still refuse to give him the $172M/5?

I read that since that since he missed the deadline this year, he isn't eligible for the "designated max rookie extension." So nobody can offer him that contract with the escalators. Maybe I got that wrong, but that is what I understood from reading it just after the deadline passed.

Well there wouldn’t be escalators at that point. He would just either be eligible for the supermax or not, based on whether he met the criteria this season.

But the numbers would be the same for a 5 year max as they were this summer.

But we do avoid having him be labeled a designated max player? I heard something like that, but I’m not sure.
My wish list: KAT, Pascal Siakam, Thad Young, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Anderson
