Looks like we did quite the number on ourselves with Miles and the Pistons

I’m 90% confident Miles gets resigned. I hope it’s not quite for the max. Mitch sounded pretty certain about him being back during his press conference today. I saw Plowright post that sources say the Pistons are not likely to offer a max deal and I didn’t think they would…

It’s been implied that we’re so inept that we paved the way for Detroit to sign Miles away from us with a Max offer by making the trade for Duren and taking a lesser 1st round pick… We’ll never know for sure but what if the genius that Mitch is, had him negotiate in return for 13 along with the other compensation we received, Detroit had to do us a solid and low ball Miles for a number no greater than what we’re comfortable matching :thinking:

Mitch is playing chess, not checkers. LOL!

No way. Players union would absolutely revolt

That is some grade A collusion right there.:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Lol, For sure. Rightfully so.

The guy that the nba lauds as the most honest gm of the lot? Lol

I posted my theory on this 4 days ago:

I want what you guys are smoking.

Down goes Detroit

Edit: perhaps the league is defacto saying miles isn’t worth what he thinks he is. Charlotte might get away with 5/85 or 5/90.

Also, I wonder if the Knicks strike out on brunson what they might trade for Terry. A couple of future first protected to slide into space

Cool. That should benefit us too! I expect a fury of activity over the next week! Then two weeks after that we will start making moves!

DET can still move those guys if they want space and they did tender Bagley so they will free up his voluminous cap hold.

Brunson’s dad being a coach for the Knicks and his agent is Leon Rose’s son so pretty sure they know they’re getting him. But they do seem like they would’ve been a possible destination for Terry, especially with news they’re offering Brunson over $27M a year.

Can change the title to “Looks like Miles did quite the number on himself with the Hornets and everyone else”

Just saw it. Dude really fucked the bag up. Like you turned down an extension to bet on yourself, balled out and earned it, then just pissed it all away in like a month and a half worth of offseason. Between lean and a DV arrest on the eve of FA, I doubt he even gets an offer from anyone else and has to accept whatever we give him. What a monumental fuck up.

You know some other teams like the Lakers will give him an offer, for a prove it deal or something. I can feel it.

Does Lakers even have any money left?

I don’t know. But we all know that Lebron always gets what he wants somehow.

Lol we can match any pathetic offer they or any other team put together. Miles would have to sign it - it’s just like we did the first time with Gordon Hayward from Utah.

Miles wouldn’t accept something like that just because it would be a horrible look for him. We will give him a respectable offer and he should be thankful for it at this point.

But will he even play a game for us in the next few years, if all of this is true? We can’t have nice things.
