If you want Kevin Durant in 2016 raise your hand. Raise it high. At the start of the 2016 season Marcin Gortat will be 33 years old. He will have 3 years and $36million left on his contract. His play will go nowhere but downhill.
That is $42million alone for those 3 players. You need 9 others to play so lets say most likely, like 99% certain, the Washington Wizards will be over the cap.
No chance to sign Kevin Durant to a max deal straight out. 3 max players and Gortat will be through the roof.
The only way to get Kevin Durant is through a Sign and Trade. We need to give OKC something of value. I want it video taped when the Wizards try to bring up Gortat as part of the sign and trade. That would get 1,000,000 youtube hits.
The Wizards do not draft well, and like this year, would prefer to not even have a 2nd round draft pick on the roster.
How are we going to do a sign and trade. We do not have the players unless John Wall and Bradley Beal will be part of the package. That would suck.
The best way is to have John Wall, Bradley Beal and $22million+ to offer Kevin Durant in a straight up, Dwight Howard type, of free agency signing (and like Lebron possibly to Cleveland).
Unfortunately, for the Wizards when the clock strikes midnight on July 10 and Gortat signs his 5 year deal, Dreams of Kevin Durant in a Washington Wizards uniform will also be just that: A DREAM.
