This has the smell of drafting Doug McBuckets written all over it.

Do you know how much?

2 mil?


Around that I think, HoopsHype salaries can give you an accurate number.

He just turned down the player option so we can offer him a bigger contract. Does not mean he is gone by any means. MJ loves him.

I think we will resign him. It was expected that he would opt out most of the season so this really isn't a surprise.

how much does everyone think he will want to stay? according to hoopshype he has opted out of $2.77m next year. i thought he might be after something like 4 years/$15m? how high (or long) does the contract have to be before the hornets decide to cut him free?

So with McBob declining the option, here is what the current roster looks like.

 

PG: Kemba Walker ($3,452,183M)

SG: Gerald Henderson (6M), Gary Neal ($3,250,000M)

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ($5,016,960M), Jeff Taylor ($915,243K)

PF: Cody Zeller ($4,030,560M)

C: Al Jefferson ($13.5M), Bismack Biyombo ($4,086,453M), Brendan Haywood ($2,000,000M)

 

The cap for the 2014-15 has risen and is expected to be at $63.2M meaning the Hornets would have $20,948,601M in cap space.

 

Realistically we need a starting caliber shooting guard and power forward as well as a back up small forward and back up point guard.

Doesn't mean he won't be back, and it would've only been surprising if he hadn't.

I know people aren't going to like this but I would not be surprised if he was replaced by Pau Gasol.

$5M per for McRobertson wouldn't be unreasonable, especially if you're no longer paying Henderson's $6 per, but there's no reason to sign McRobertson to that if you're going to draft a PF, which they shouldn't, even if Randle falls.
