Article Summary:

Bringing back Griffin and Brown ensures continuity, and rookies Thomas and Sharpe could fill needs down the road. Brooklyn even reportedly saved $47 million in salary and tax payments by moving Jordan, who would have played a limited role this season. Holiday became expendable with the emergence of McConnell, who the team quickly re-signed, and the Pacers will largely run back the same unit as last season, but hopefully with a healthy TJ Warren. Valanciunas isn’t a great fit alongside Williamson, and Graham, while a knock-down shooter, will only exacerbate their defensive issues from a season ago. San Antonio has a strange enough roster that it could still be competitive next season, or it could flip players like Young and Aminu, but as of now, they lack a high-upside future star to build around.
