I wouldn't mind us offering that asset wise, but he is a RFA looking for 5 mil/year, so it will be a hard sign, plus I think Colorado would want more in assets anyways.

He is a strong 2 way player but on a cup winner he'd be a high end #3 center. Not sure he has another level from last year's 55 points.

I would hold off on moving Eller, I think he still has another level he can reach, plus he is on a cheap contract and his value isn't great for moving him.

Cherry likes him because of his last name.
