Default KAT signs Supermax deal. 5 years 190 million.

Not that they had a choice.

this is a crazy deal for someone coming off a rookie contract but expected. You almost wish he didnt make the all-nba team last year so he could only be offered 5 yrs 150

They did have a choice.

Look... here's the thing... I think David Griffin said it best...

Owners have to decide if making money is most important or that winning is most important. Obviously winning takes care of the first thing, but what I'm saying is this...

There is a 0% chance that KAT will ever be the center piece/main guy on a title team.

They are going to be mired in mediocrity / sorta good for the duration of his contract and beyond tbh. This was a deal about making money. Not about winning.

I don't give a flying **** what anyone says otherwise. There is a 0% chance KAT will ever be the best guy on a title winner. Period. Maybe they think he will.. and that just speaks to the state of the franchise TBH.

KAT may very well never win a title but definitively claiming he has zero shot at ever being a championship #1 is straight up retarded. Dude is a borderline top 15 player at 22 years old, quite frankly has played for a mediocre coach who has never optimized his game on either end, and still has a ton of upside. None of us know where the story ends with him.

WOW, they franchised both Towns/Wiggins until 2023


LOCKED for another half decade of misery


Can't attract free agents with these 2 stick bombs leeching half the teams salary. As a star player from the outside looking in, there's simply no more room to snag actual assets.

Hopefully he improves. He leaves a lot to be desired. His performance this past post-season was beyond abysmal.

Horrible deal for a 7 foot 3 point shooter who gives you nothing outside of offense

My IQ is higher than yours and it always will be. You don't know basketball.

KAT doesn't have it upstairs nor in his chest. That will never change.

Never seen someone who doesn’t play defense earn so much since Kobe made $25M in 2016

Do people with high IQs get bowl cuts and hand out $600 tickets to someone online and expecting them to show up?
