    We will have an opportunity to see in the playoffs.
    I've asked this question a million times and never got an answer.

    The reality is that if you sign BI for that max, and extend Trey, you must do it on the assumption that this is a championship level team in the waiting. If you don't believe that, then you're admitting you don't care about championship upside because there will be no more needle-moving options available to us.

    If you don't think this is already a championship calibre team, then you accept there needs to be change and you can't do that while committing that money. So someone's got to go.
    Basketball.

    It's simple. You package a positive asset with a perceived negative asset. We've seen this done before, time and time again. So I'm puzzled as to why some of you are puzzled on how keeping Ingram, and Zion together while upgrading is possible.

    BI is not signing a contract for way below his max, if he was going to do that he would have extended last year. Trey is not extending for half of the money that comparable players from his class have been extending for. CP3 is not coming home.
    Yes, hence why I am part of team trade BI. Because, I?d rather D Murray, extending Murphy, and Capela.
