Teams that can offer Noel Max (estimated to be 25.8mill a year)
Denver - (Plumlee QO/RFA, Jokic)
Minnesota - (Anthony-Towns, Dieng, Pekovic)
Philadelphia - (Embiid, Okafor)
Brooklyn - (Lopez, Hamilton)
Phoenix - (Len QO/RFA, Chandler, Bender)
Indiana - (Turner, Jefferson)
Boston - (Olynyk, Zeller)
Sacramento - (Koufos, Cauley-Stein, Labissiere)

I'd say that Boston, Sacramento, and Brooklyn are going to be our biggest risks of offering big money. Maybe not max, but at least 15mil

Yeah, big difference between can and (possibly) will :

Den - their 2 bigs now seem to really mesh well ... zero need for another big money big
Min - KAT is their guy, should spend money on other positions for more team need
Phi - lol, yeah, no.
Bro - Lopez is their guy for one more year ... they need so much more than another big
Pho - Isn't Len their future big guy?
Ind - they will be rebuilding after PG leaves so who knows
Bos - possibly, but they need offense right now and are overloaded on defense
Sac - they don't really have a direction right now ... Buddy Hield??

I think Ind and Sac possibly but even then, I don't see them offering big money to an unknown Noel at this point. Given the public knowledge that the Mavs will match anything, I'm guessing there won't be another team forcing us to pay more than what we want.

I could see Phoenix and Boston as the most likely. If Len is the answer in Phoenix, that's understandable. He was playing very similar to Noel towards the end of last season and showed he should get more minutes. Boston could use an athletic, defensive minded center such as Noel to free up Horford to do more at PF. I wouldn't be surprised there. Sacramento may be possible, but with 3 bigs already, 2 of which are very young and promising, I don't see them crowding the minutes.

All in all, if we can lock up Noel for less than $20M/year, you call it a win.

Anyone have buyer's remorse if Noel is earning $20 mill/ year?

Maybe a better question:

What would be better

A) Noel gets offered 20mill a year. We match and pay him. Money probably wouldn't get spent elsewhere, but its a possibility. Might end up paying an injured player 20mill or 20 mill to a guy whose development has stalled and we're overpaying like Powell.

B) we fail to match. Lose three second rounders and our center spot looks like crap.

Ugh. I was trying to avoid thinking about the lose-lose scenario. We'll match and let's hope he develops.

Definitely buyer's remorse on Matthews yet it seems you have to pay players ridiculous contracts these days.

I think such things makes the D League far more important than it used to be. And structuring multi-year contracts on potentials from that talent pool so you don't have to pay them big bucks if they develop.

Yep, searching for diamonds in the rough landed us Yogi, Mejri, Finney-Smith, Brussino, and Uthoff... We can bring all of those guys back on the cheap next season (or beyond) if we want to.
