Mitch may kill everyone on live TV
My scenario is that KD doesn't come unless we get PG on the roster. In which case, it would be worth it to get those to guys, but still not ideal as you point out. I'd say fill out the role players rather than sign Whiteside.
Trade DLo + randle + pick + lou to balance out contracts.
Clarkson (1 year at 18 mil) -- get his bird rights and sign him over the cap next year
+ 20 mil and exceptions to fill out the roster (ie. Biyombo/Mahinmi at 10-12 mil, Lin at 8 mil)
Next season, you get an extra $20 + $18 mil from clarkson (cause we'd resign him over the cap). Plenty of max level PGs in 2017 (westbrook, CP3, Lowry). Then fill out the roster with whats left. A core of CP3, Durant, and PG are contenders every year. We'd be capped out for years, so picking to role players will be key in whether this team can win it all.
As a coach, right?
