It feels like every single team with the $12.4M MLE has been linked to Max Strus, Bruce Brown, Donte DiVincenzo, etc. There are so few of these guys, and a cap space team could easily make a bigger offer. Realistically, most MLE teams should start planning around other targets. – 8:50 PM

More on this storyline

At this juncture, Max Strus, a career 37.1% 3-point shooter over three seasons with Miami, appears headed out of South Beach on the open market. There are several teams often mentioned by league personnel as Strus suitors, from those with cap room like Detroit, Indiana and Orlando, to teams that have the full mid-level exception like Cleveland, and others that are working to get under the first tax apron and gain access to that $12.2 million salary slot. The Cavaliers are looking at all kinds of wing targets, sources said, from Strus to Kelly Oubre to Georges Niang. There appears to be enough of an interest in Strus around the NBA that league figures aren’t expecting the DePaul product to return to Miami, and Strus sounds likely to command above the full mid-level in average annual salary when everything’s said and done. -via Yahoo!
