Re: Charlotte wants Stephen Curry?
I think theoretically we could sign Felton to a 1 or 2 year deal, but I feel pretty darn sure he's going to get full MLE offers from other teams...and I think those are a minimum of 3 years.
IMO the least we can end up giving Felton where we retain him will be (roughly) 5.8 million the 1st year and that plus 10% raises for 2 more. I expect we end up giving him something like 6.5 starting out with the increases, and I'd rather it be for 3 vs. 5 or 6 years. Those long deals really strap franchises, esp. when they get on the tail end of the contract. I'd do that with Felton over most of the others; he REALLY wants to stay here, and we can then reward him if he gets even better or not be committed long term if he doesn't.
I would NOT trade DJ unless it's a no brainer. We need his shooting in the 2nd unit and I want a legitimate backup PG. I definitely don't want to go back to having guys like McInnis getting significant minutes.
