It’s supposed to increase by close to 150 mil over the next couple years, will be decent contracts I think

There's going to be a significant bump soon, possibly as soon as next year.

History tells us that there are some teams who negotiate that well, and some teams... not so well. Jim McIlvaine likes this.

Magic. Kings. Mavs. Washington. Maybe Lakers
Are you are just pulling random teams out?

Of those teams i think only the Magic are likely to have max contract space next year and i doubt they are in the market to use it on him

As an Orlando fan, I can confirm we'd have zero interest in Draymond. Too old and wrong position.

We're looking at young guards.

Poole was the dream. Now? ¯\(ツ)

You don't think teams would make room for a player of Draymond ability?

Listen to Steve Kerr talk about him. Or watch how much impact he has on each end


You'd think magic have enough smalls. Some leadership and d would be in well.

Personally I'd like him at bucks cause Lopez is ancient.

Lakers seems most obvious. Ad. Lebron. Green not ideal but defence looks strong

Orlando would never take Draymond.

He would only fit on a handful of teams. Very good to elite teams that need a power forward, help on defense and someone who is an option to run an offense (team would need shooters). I'd be surprised if the list was more than 5 long. And none of them would offer him the max.

Draymond only has 2 or 3 years of good basketball ahead of him.

Orlando fans don't want to give up on him yet but there are reasons for concern. He does almost nothing on offence well and he's had injuries during his rookie year, in the offseason he had ankle surgery and now he's injured again. He's an excellent defender but it hasn't been a good start.

We have plenty of smalls but we lack a sure thing to go with WCJ, Paolo and Franz.

None of Fultz, Suggs, Anthony or RJ Hampton are on the same level as the 3 front court guys.

Also, we need offence more than defence.

Disagree reckon he'd fit everywhere to an extent.

Giannis and green, yes. (Lopez can't shoot either)

Ad, lebron and green, yes.

Kd and green yes.

Curry, Klay and green. Yes.


Not all great fits cause drays offense and the money an issue but they good enough to make it work

He would go ok in any system - the issue is whether he can replicate what he has with Steph and Klay which is largely the answer not really. If anything, he fits in a team with a 5 that spaces the floor well. Put him into a Timberwolves though with Rudy and it won't work at all.

Anyone going to buy NBA League Pass with ads (which is actually a bit cheaper) ?

Thinking about it, but want to find out if it's actually worth the discount ?
