Buddy Hield and the Kings have agreed to a 4-year, $94 million contract extension, which could reach $106M with bonuses.

Now the question is are those bonuses likely or not. Impacts salary cap.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 17:25:46
Sorry, bonuses are based on team making Finals and Buddy making All-Star teams. Payment scale is also front loaded which will make Fox and Bagley's signings easier to do.

Pretty much a win for both sides. Buddy performs he gets paid like a max player, he doesn't perform then he gets less.

Seems like a great deal for both sides, I like it a lot.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 17:55:11
I like it.
I really hope the kings make the playoffs this year.

Do you think Otto Porter is going to opt out of his player option for a longer deal this next offseason?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 13:23:17
I think he accepts the option and waits until next year when there are a bunch of teams with cap.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 13:53:41
There aren't many free agents available next year, but most teams are over the cap. I think he has a better chance next year to get a big contract.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 15:55:33
I'd be surprised if he opted in unless he has a horrible year or gets hurt. He should be in line for a similar contract to what Harrison Barnes just got.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 18:56:42
Not sure if he can pull a Harrison Barnes kind of move with Chicago. If not, he would be opting in.

Agree0 Disagree0

Teams that could be surprisingly good:

1) Sacramento ( reminds me to a young golden state team, this is the break out year)
2)Dallas (a healty Porzingis plays ass a beast)
3)OKC (CP3 revenche)
4) NO (The combo zion-Ball works)
5)Washington (Beal plays like an MVP)

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 10:29:44
I would add Heat (Butler plays MVP level, and Herro plays at a rookie of the year level) .
They didn't make playoffs last year but if their 2 big additions in Butler and Herro both play well they could make a top 4 seed in the East. Plus i think they will make another move at somepoint before the trade deadline to improve.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 15:59:10
Define surprisingly good. I think OKC, Dallas, NO, and Sacramento probably fight for the 9 spot in the west. I also think NO and OKC inevitably trade their good vets around the trade deadline and drop off significantly.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 16:23:17
surpricely good for me:
Sacramento: 48 wins
Dallas: 46 wins
OKC: 42 wins
NO:42 wins
Washington: 45 wins
And yeah, the Heat: 48 wins.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2019 17:28:26
I think Washington will surprise people. Especially if IT can get back to his Celtic-level of play.

Agree0 Disagree0

Raptors, Pascal Siakam reportedly agree to four-year, $129.9 million max contract extension

Damn, this doesn't help the Kings in the Buddy Hield negotiations.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 23:54:40
The Kings should just give it to him. If they don’t someone will and then they’ll have an annoyed Buddy when they match.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 02:09:45
Yea, kind of agreeing. Trade Barnes away when Bagley is due to be paid.

You are a GM with cap space next year. Which RFA do you offer a max contract to first?

Buddy Hield or Jaylon Brown?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:24:41
none, i don't think they're worth a max contract.
J Brown should have signed that 80M contract.
Maybe Cleveland could give him that big contract, but i think it's to much.

Hield is a good fit in sacramento, he could be an all star in the east. So they could offer close to the max for him. For sure if they make the playoffs next year. But i can't see another team give him that max contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:56:07
Gasupo, if Brown should gave signed his $80 deal, then Hield should have signed his $90mil offer?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 18:58:06
Seems like it's Hield by a mile.

Brown feels like his ceiling is coming down to someone like Covington. Maybe Tobias Harris. Likely a 4th best player on an elite team.

Hield could jump up to a McCollum/ Murray/ Kemba/ Klay tier. A legit second option.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 20:25:02
Kind of feel like Hield is on par with Murray (and Mitchell) . A step below MCollum and Klay as SGs in the WC.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 Oct 2019 07:40:45
Not sure Hield should have signed that 90M dollar contract. I would have liked that, it would give sacramento flexibility, but it's all about the money.

J Brown isn't worth that 80M contract, so i would let him go if he wants more. I would offer a max contract to keep Hield in sacramento. But i don't think another team would offer a max contract, so i think they can come to an agreemenet between 90M and a max conntract.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 09:52:42
The "problem" with maxing Hield is that in the future with Bogi, Fox and Bagley getting max deals as well, that takes up 100% of the Kings salary cap. So how to you keep adding to that core? Its the OKC dilemna of paying Harden, Durant, Westbrook and Ibaka all over again.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 11:31:44
Fredman, the only guy you mentioned that’s better than Hield is Fox. You can’t just let your second best player walk. If OKC just keeps all of those guys and fills out the roster with minimum contracts, they would have multiple titles. Not to mention that they were willing to give Barnes a ton of money. They should have just let him walk rather than tempting fate with Hield.

Any way to answer the original question, most teams probably go with Hield. He’s the better of the two. Maybe, a team like the Cavs would go with Brown, since they’re heavy on guard and desperately need defense. All that said, I think the Kings ultimately match whatever Hield gets, I don’t think Boston matches a big offer for Brown.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 13:08:05
Lamb was projected to become the same level Harden was. It turned all wrong for OKC. Harden became an MVP and Lamb is mediocre, but it was seen as a smart trade in 2012.

The Kings still can trade Hield in 2022 or 2023, when they have to pay Bagley. But there are no good free agents in 2020 and i doubt they can get a better player in 2022. so i wouldn't hesitate to give him a big contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 14:49:47
Rkenne, that is the same thinking that got Wiggins his max deal. How's that working out?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 15:09:35
You can afford 3 max guys if you are in a championship window. You pay Hield because he's the one guy on that team that's worth it right now. Bagley might become a max guy, but is he right now? Bogdanovic shouldn't be considered anywhere close to a max guy, he's bound for a Joe Ingles contract (or should be) .

If you think that Hield, Fox, and Bagley are all star caliber players that can be a trio to win it all, you pay them. Period.

Heck, even if you don't think that, if you think Hield will be a positive value with a max contract, you give it to him. You can always trade him when other max guys come around.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Oct 2019 16:34:50
Brown and Hield are both better than Wiggins.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2019 00:30:32
Not sure what your point is with such an obvious comparision, Rkenne. If you are saying that Hield and Brown should get a max offer because they are better than Wiggins who got a max deal. If so, then thete shpuld be over 100 players with max deals.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Oct 2019 01:49:29
I don’t think Brown is worth a max unless he has a huge year, but Hield probably is. I’m just saying that you’re not entirely counting on them getting significantly better. They’re both good and Hield is pretty close to already playing at a max level. At worst, it’s probably a slight over pay for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2019 14:54:16
If Brown want to take only a MAX which team would offer for him and would have the money for? Boston probably wouldn`t. He is a good, Young 3&D guy, but cannot create his shot or make plays.

Maybe Memphis, NY or OKC? Dallas! Brown may be a great fit beside MagicLuca and KPorzee in Addition to Wright!

Maybe Mavs can make an opportunistics signing? Since Detroit wants to free up a roster spot there could be a three team trade on the horizont:

Boston
- K.Thomas and a 1st by Mavs or Justin Jackson and a 2nd by Mavs
Dallas:
- Brown
Detroit:
- 2nd picks by Mavs

Agree0 Disagree2

18 Oct 2019 09:54:27
Is Dallas prepared to pay Brown a Max offer? Trading a first only makes sense if you plan on resigning him.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like Bradley green James Davis McGee as starting 5 for Lakers. Hope James could shoot 5/6 or like 11/13 from ft every real game
