I saw the worst challenge yesterday.

Half way through the second quarter. Foul was called. Warriors got the ball on the side line.

Foul was challenged.

Challenge was successful.

End result... Warriors ball on the side line.

I mean... why?

28.9 mil trade exemption collecting dust! FML
I'd be surprised if it ended up being the full 28 million without sending salaries out, because adding roughly $15 million (I heard) in salary to your roster will put you over the luxury tax, which means repeater taxes will kick in next season, and stay locked in again for 2022/23.

How many more days until it expires? Apparently only valid for 1 year
November.

Tatum and brown are 22/24

I guess there is no rush if they are confident they will hang around.

Mj didn't win until 28
The problem is they are capped out now because Tatum and Brown's extensions have kicked in. So they can't go the free agency route beyond the Tristan Thompsons of the world. And they've used up all the draft capital they acquired over the years.

2018-2021 should have been their ideal time to contend, but they've bled too much talent via free agency, Kemba's deal looks iffy, and they're relying almost entirely on mid to late first round draftees for depth and improvement.

They're not screwed, but their options to improve now are much more limited than they have been. And that's a problem when they're clearly not contenders as presently constructed.
