I'm sure the 4/42M max extension is already on the table.  They can't offer 3/35.


can they offer less years at all? I don't know if Ujiri would want to, given he might want a clean slate soon.

I'm assuming a 4yr deal wouldn't do anything to change his plans considering that isn't much money and my guess is he might want to keep him. But in three yrars, if he wants a "clean slate" and he doesn't see Powell as part of that he'd easily be moved at that salary.

If the big contracts come off and stay off in a few years, Powell's salary won't impact their flexibility. He's young, you want to lock those guys in for as long as possible. I'd bet Powell asks for a player option, though.

I'd give him all the player option years he wants, the key for us is to manage the next two years.

Yep!  Of course, there can only be one option year.  But still!  Get him locked in for the next two years, and give him a third year PO for all I care, if that's what he wants.  After the window closes and Ibaka/Lowry's deals in particular are done, we will have the room to re-sign him.  

Still, I'd definitely rather he be locked up long term, it's just not a top priority.
