The biggest ticket item is Thad Young, who is due $14 million if he opts-in (seems unlikely) rather than re-negotiating a new deal for more years (more likely). If Young stays, a 3-point shooting power forward is more of a priority behind him because that’s not his strength. If he opts-out and leaves in free agency, a starting-quality stretch four who can defend inside-out is the priority (and much harder to find). The next biggest decision is whether Cory Joseph ($8 million) stays. According to Pritchard, both players indicated in exit meetings they’d like to return, but if both depart, that will create more movement out of necessity.
