Denver Nuggets trade: 86 Nikola Vucevic - $32,139,329 - $35,674,655 - $39,598,867 POR 2021 2nd
I accept. This trade is basically Jaxson Hayes + stuff for Vucevic. I like Hayes as a prospect and all those soon-to-be expiring contracts and the additional 2nd round picks open up many options and possibilities for other trades.
I'm clearing shelf space for something more usable. If Vuc is PF-eligible, then he's a considerable upgrade to Kief in that position.
Question on salary matching. Would it make a difference if we compute using 2019-20 salaries vis-a-vis 2020-21 since we are technically in the 2020 offseason?
I accept either way.
It's definitely better for you that we use 2019-20 salaries while we still can because acquiring a player with 3 years gets you Bird rights to re-sign him. We also don't really do position eligibility like regular fantasy. If a lineup is plausible, then you can play it. Vucevic is a stretch big that is often on the perimeter, he could absolutely start at PF in D5.
