✔ @ESPNSteinLine Al Jefferson is heading to Charlotte on three-year deal worth estimated$41 million with opt out after Year 2, sources tell ESPN
Damn, BRNC, you're fast!
I slowly waned in my desire for Big Al the past few days, preferring to spend 10~13mil a year on a Pek or Monroe offer sheet. But, I guess this is what MJ wants. I just hope Cho is behind it as well. Not an overly bad deal, 3yrs with an opt-out.
If true, I am not happy about this at all.
App State '18
For everyone that will, understandably (I'm not judging/hating), balk at this signing...realize the silver lining means no more Tyrus Thomas and no more Byron Mullens. Also, IMO, I bet Clifford will look to use Al in a similar way offensively that he did D12 in Orlando and will likely have Zeller defending the P&R.
More coming out...
