Phoenix Suns - Dion Waiters
Year 1: $12,175,000 Year 2: $12,725,000 Year 3: $13,275,000 Year 4: $13,825,000
Dion got offers later in the process from teams better positioned to compete, but we ultimately chose to go with a team that made him feel like he was a priority in the Suns. He'll be the Suns' starting SG for the meantime, and has been told he'd be a primary scoring option.
We also considered the Rockets but ultimately decided otherwise when we considered how late they came into the process - asking Dion to wait on another decision made him realize that he wasn't as big a priority as he was to the Suns and the other involved team.
The Pacers also came into the chase early, but were only able to offer the full MLE - Larry and the Pacers did make Dion feel like a priority, but the difference in money was just too much to overlook.
Sorry I did not bid on you, Dion, but the acquisition of Oladipo sort of made you expendable. Besides, I could not have offered you that much money anyways. I wish you the best of luck to you in Phoenix, and remember only you can help the Pistons get the #1 pick next year!
Kevin Hollis: I would like to file a grievance against Jay-Z, Atlanta Hawks GM. He is clearly a racist. Seven white players on his team. Rumor has it he is trading for Gordon Heyward, Goran Dragic, and JJ Reddick this season to round out his starting rotation.
