Like 99% of the time you are right, but if the Cavaliers are truly desperate to get under the tax this year to start the reset of the repeater tax like it appears they are, then a stretch is absolutely the way to go.Waive JR sure, Stretch Knight, no fucking way.
WIth an owner willing to spend, you cant stretch anyone, it kills your cap space for years to come, look at the lakers who are losing 5 mill in cap because of stretching someone.
Make other moves to get under the luxury cap, but we cant stretch anyone, its just a bad move of desperation.
With all the expiring contracts on the roster, the Cavaliers are currently projected to be about $75 million dollars UNDER the 2020-2021 luxury tax. Kicking 5M of Knight's stretched salary into 20-21 and 21-22 is the way to go.
This is truly one of the extremely rare scenarios where it makes sense. A team that's desperate to reset the tax this upcoming year, but has literally no chance of being in the tax the following year.
