The Raptors ended up being an early signal of the coming shift as Masai Ujiri negotiated extensions with both Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam. Ujiri willingly conceding spending power, albeit to retain two pivotal members of their championship team, helped clarify how little many front offices cared about maximizing 2020 cap space. It was unsurprising to see less flexible front offices like the 76ers (Ben Simmons) and Nets (Caris LeVert and Taurean Prince) lock up young players ahead of restricted free agency, but a group of teams that includes the Raptors, Grizzlies (Dillon Brooks) and Kings (Buddy Hield) deliberately gave up cap space, and that meaningfully reduced the league-wide spending power this summer.
This year, Siakam earned enough votes to start, leaving no doubt that he belongs at the NBA’s glitzy annual showcase event with its biggest superstars. “I said before, I want to be a starter, I want to be an all-star – not a borderline all-star,” Siakam said. “But now it’s like, I want to stay there. I don’t want to be there for just one year. So there’s always something bigger to fish for.”
