This summer’s free market is very lively, and contracts worth hundreds of millions are already commonplace
As of July 5, most of the top stars have found their next home. In the free market, the biggest suspense is Leonard’s decision.
However, in the early hours of this morning, , three more big fish entered the free market.
Of course, the fish is very big. As for whether it is fresh, it depends on the judgment of the buyers.
The famous NBA reporter Brian Windhorst reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to start rebuilding, and they will put Tristan Thompson on the shelf.
Last season, TT averaged 10.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game, a career high in rebounds, but he only played 43 games due to injury.
The 88 million contract between TT and the Cavaliers has the last season left.
Earlier than TT, the Cavaliers had already made two moves, and the other two starters when they won the championship were also put on the shelves.
JR Smith still has a market, don’t look at the four-year $57 million he signed with the Cavaliers in the summer of 2016, but next season is the last year of the contract, with a salary of $15.8 million, and only 4 million is guaranteed
Don’t look at JR’s average of only 6.4 points and 1.9 assists per game, but with such a “high-quality” contract, there will still be people who come to grab people.
From the current point of view, among the three players put on the shelves by the Cavaliers, Love is the most difficult to find a receiver.
In late July last year, the Cavaliers decided to renew their contract with Love in advance, and the new four-year $120 million contract began in the 19-20 season.
Last season, the Cavaliers only won 19 games and missed the No. 1 pick.
Plagued by injuries, Love played only 22 games, averaging 17 points, 10.9 rebounds and 3 assists per game, and his shooting percentage was only 38.5%, a career low.
Not only that, Love’s injury physique, defensive weakness, and 30-year-old age will all be the core issues that make it difficult for him to be traded.
So, who do you think will rot in the hands of the Cavaliers after this summer, Love, TT, and JR?
