Given how so many big man contracts have turned into awful deals teams are trying to dump I think they'll be able to retain him. I don't really think a team is going to go over the 5.2 per year mark for him.

I fear the Seventy Stinkers the most in this regard.

They've got money to spend and to weaken us at the same time strengthening themselves is a double win.

He'd be a great backup to Embiid and could spell him for extended lengths of time. I don't lijke the prospect of that at all.

I don't know how much Baynes will cost, seems like prolly not that much, but simply based on Philly now being in the mix and how guarded Embiid, I want to keep him around. 

I'm hoping we can sign Smart to the MLE, re-up Baynes and still be under the cap.  Can anyone tell me how likely it's looking that this could be possible?

I'd also like to send Nader packing and give his spot to Jabari Bird, but that's another story.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I hope we can keep Baynes, but we're going to be very good next year. A lot of veterans are going to love the prospect of playing for the Celtics next season.

Smart teams don't overpay for bench role players. With the cap and luxury tax limitations, you just can't do that.

And as much as I like what Baynes has brought to the table, it isn't just Baynes. It's Brad Stephens and what the rest of the roster did around Baynes. Let's not pretend he was some highly sought after free agent. Baynes has likely experienced the Evan Turner effect.

Not really in this case.  Baynes is basically the same player hes always been.  Hes used a little differently but his production is in line with his norms.

Signing Smart to the MLE would be a bad move.  We can resign him using Bird Rights, there's no reason to waste the MLE/limit the years we can give him/hard cap ourselves at the tax line
I'm bitter.

Regular season he hit them at his career average (14%). The post-season has been really odd; I cant remember the last time a guy went from a non-factor to showcasing a mastered skill in the playoffs. Its like if one post-season Andre Drummond turned into a 90% FT shooter.

Regular season he barely shot threes if I recall correctly.
