Apparently, $94,343,125 – a max contract – and not a penny less. Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report: A league source tells me that his agent, Rich Paul, has already made it clear to the Cleveland Cavaliers that Thompson will not sign a long-term deal unless it is a max deal. And otherwise, he is prepared to sign a one-year qualifying offer with the additional knowledge, according to the source, that Paul believes that he can get a max deal with the Raptors next summer.

What you can do, though, is bid on the uniform Jordan wore during the filming of Space Jam way back in the ‘90s, when times were simpler and athletes had senses of humor about themselves. Variety reports that LA-based Profiles In History, which has previously headed the auctions of items from other interspecies sports cartoons like Glee and Mad Men, is handling the auction for Jordan’s jersey. The estimated listing price ranges from $10,000 to $15,000, which is a small price to pay to sport a jersey with “signs of wear” and “minor staining” from the athletic machinations of MJ himself. Not convinced yet? The jersey comes complete with a Tune Squad logo—the team of cartoon animals that helped Jordan demolish the nefarious Monstars—and the number 23 across its back, which is both Jordan’s number and the number of times we had to rewrite the plot of Space Jam in that first paragraph so it made at least a modicum of sense.
