Here's an opportunity to predict where IT will land and for how much.

My prediction: DET, ORL, NYK, BKN

Contract: 3 years, $60m

Brooklyn has D'angelo Russell, and Lin will be back too. I don't see them going for IT

IT is a Knicks type of player, I can see that happening.

One of the LA teams on a 2 year deal between $20m-25m, with a partial guarantee on the 2nd year so they can be players in the 2019 FA market.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

I can see DET, NYK or MIA. 2 years /30 mill. 2nd year a team option.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

Thomas might have to play 1 year on a prove it deal unless he lights it up with the lakers.

I feel pretty bad for IT actually. a year ago today he was averaging 28ppg, leading the #1 seed in the east, was an MVP cantidate, on his way to earning a max contract

Now hes been traded by the Celtics to the cavs. The cavs then during the trade process killed his value by trashing him to squeeze a 2nd round pick out of danny. Then he struggles with the cavs for 15 games and they ship him off to the lakers.

I really hope for IT he regains his value on the lakers.

Lou Williams' contract (3 yr/24 mil), while not awful for him, has set a low market value for guys like IT.  Unfortunately, he may make much less than expected.  That said, it only takes 1 team that believes in him to extend a much larger offer.

Side note: If Lou is making 8 mil, what does that mean for Smart?

Orlando is a good one. Desperate for a go-to scorer and in need of a new PG.

I still think Marcus gets 4x10. He's younger and can help change a defense's culture.

I find it hard to have sympathy for guys that will get paid millions to play a kids game. I feel bad for guys like Ryan Shazier who get really hurt playing a game.

I wonder if Pop would kick the tires on IT in SA. He would be their main playmaker, besides Kawhi.

Proven healthy IT will get a 20mm per year multi-year contract. Unhealthy IT lucky to get league min.

Any chance Isaiah gets bought out?
My dream is “IT” gets bought out as the LAL have compassion and let him sign with a real contender and we all know the love he has for the Celtics! I know that’s a lot of guards, but if anyone can make it work Stevens can!

I think that Philadelphia lands LeBron and that the Lakers fail to sign the top free agents and wait out another year and offer Thomas a one-year-contract of around 15-18 million. Maybe the Knicks offer Thomas a multi-year deal, but I think even the Knicks don't want to take the gamble anymore after the catastrophe with Noah.
Idiot.

Hope you are correct that LeBron sign with Philly.

Found this interesting:

Quote
A brief poll of some NBA front-office executives on Thomas’s value this summer revealed that a long-term, rich contract is likely out of the question. Their responses settled around the mid-level exception (roughly $8.5 million) with one saying, “something under $10 million” and another adding, “someone will give him a one-year deal.”

If LA bombs on Bron .....I d give IT 50 % chance taking a decn offer.  He is liked in LA fan base .  If LA bombs out on Bron and PG .....I think IT is lock for a nce contract with Lakers l. He is entertaining and fits well with younger dudes. 

If Lakers get two Max players .....IT is probably gone ..... I like the Orlando fit the best , maybe Knicks .

Lou Williams set his own market value by not waiting until FA to field offers from other teams. But, in general, I agree - as teams just won't have as much money to spend this offseason.

At the very least, I see IT getting a JJ Redick type contract to bring excitement to a place like NYK or ORL. If the Lakers strike out, he may very well fit in there, too. Lonzo is a taller PG and IT can play on or off the ball.
