    And now you can see why owners may not want to go over the luxury cap. In three of the four years listed, the tax is greater than the actual salary paid.

    Here is something from Hoops Hype on the tax.

    I'd have to think Klay's injury (though terrible) is good news for Khris. If he wasn't before, he's damn near guaranteed to get maxed by somebody.

    Between KD and Klay, there is going to be a lot of money spent on players that won't see much of the court next season.

    If you are the Knicks do you offer both, have them sit out, and get another lottery pick next season and then shoot for the following year as the big year?

    It will just be interesting to see what happens with both of those players.

    More on Middleton. Says Bucks and Middleton expected to work towards a new deal. Hopefully not the max:

    Shouldn't get even close to the Max. Perfect time to have an all star year. If Middleton and Lopez is what it takes to keep Giannis, then I'm ok. Just hope we don't regret this one.

    Lopez will be interesting... sounds like there are a few teams willing to go 4/50+ for him. I don't know if the Bucks need to do that.

    If Memphis waives Korver, I'd absolutely let Niko walk and kick the tires there on a reasonable deal.

    I remember reading/hearing the Bucks tried to trade for Korver during last season. Played for Budenholzer in Atlanta. Also interesting that Horford has opted out, rumors that he is done in Boston.

    If Kawhi goes to the Clippers, then the Bucks owners should see $$$ in their eyes and a pretty good path to the NBA finals. Go over the luxury tax limit to keep the team in tact (and keep Giannis happy). Kawhi leaves Toronto for Clippers, Kyrie leaves Boston for the Nets, Horford moves on, Jimmy Butler goes elsewhere. If the Bucks bring their guys back, who is the main competition for the Eastern Conference Finals?

    My guess is Lopez take a deal just under the 4 for 50 to stay in MKE. Middleton comes back for just under the max, Brogdan comes back, overpriced, but Bucks have to match. Hill takes the $1 buyout, and comes back for just under $10 mil. I'd also watch to see if Memphis waives Korver as you suggest, could be an interesting piece.

    The Bucks are in a perfect spot in the East if the owners don't mind spending a few $$.

    Bucks just dumped Snell and the 30th pick to Detroit for Leuer. Saves about 2.5 million on this years cap in salary difference, plus the cap hold of the draft pick. Got out from under Snell's second year of about 12 M. Bucks could theoretically waive Leuer and use stretch him over three years and create 6.5 million more in cap space, or even look to trade Leuer for something else.
