However, that is only the start of what must be giving agents cold sweats. There are no double max teams and only the Hawks, Knicks and Pistons look likely to have enough wiggle room to sign a 7-9 year player to a 30 percent max contract, though the Heat and possibly Hornets could join them with smaller moves. That gets even more treacherous because Pat Riley has made it abundantly clear that he prioritizes 2021 cap space, meaning Miami will presumably not use its money to sign players for more than one season unless it is an incredibly team-friendly contract. The same could be true for the Knicks and potentially anyone other than the Trail Blazers, since extensions for Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in 2021 makes their space use it or lose it.
“Whoever has to guard him better get some sleep and really think about the game plan because they’re in trouble,” McCollum said with a smile. “The rhythm he’s in, the efficiency of getting to his spots, getting to the free-throw line, he’s passing the ball the best I’ve ever seen him pass it. “He’s the most efficient basketball player in the league for the last month or so. Like I always say, he’s a machine. He’s built for these type of moments. When we’re struggling, he gets it going and we’re reaching that part of the season where he usually turns it up a notch.”
“The conversation was different than it had been (with other teams). I felt welcomed and wanted as opposed to me pitching myself to somebody. When you feel that, it’s hard to turn that down.” The opportunity to play with Lillard and McCollum appealed to him, too. “Me and ‘Dame’ have always talked,” Anthony said. “CJ and I worked out together in the summers (in L.A.). I always stayed connected and in tune with what was going on in Portland.”
