While browsing the interwebs on my commute home I came across this little gem.
The big takeaway was that Morey expects to move both Asik and Lin this summer because he's open to moving them for cap space to give them room to pursue a max FA. That means you have to have $8M of room under the cap to carry an unbalance trade.
Enter the Sandman (or Ernie). Don't know how feasible this is but can the wiz renounce Gortat and Ariza, trade for Asik's deal and still sign Monroe to a deal ~12M? If that's doable it means the MLE would still be open for the smaller move to cement the bench.
