Hornets Sign Marvin Williams

I wish there was a way to place an actual age limit for forums on the internet.

You know posters like SuperJ are like 16 tops.

You know I'm 15 and I have received pretty respectable comments from other Huddlers. Let's not apply that to everyone because I love the Huddle

So let me get this straight.. some idiot chiming in on every GD post with disdain and 'know-it-all' making it known he's a 2 bit sports management major is the end all be all?  Good for you.  I received my undergrad in philosophy and physics, double majored,  and my MPhys at York.  You are annoying.  Folks like you are the reason we are mocked and ridiculed in other boards.  I made this account a couple days ago hoping, practically begging for the nonobjective inside perspective without the asinine fools proclaiming to be the Queen City Schwab.  And I'll delete my account never quite understanding how someone will go on the Charlotte Hornets message board flaunting a degree (not even attained) in 'Sports Management'.  LOL.  Good riddance.  And the best of luck with that sports management degree, kid.

The salary cap increases thanks to the new TV deal in 2 years. That's why LeBron only signed with Cleveland for 2 years. He can re-up and get a larger max deal thanks to a larger salary cap.

Overpay now so you'll have lots of salary coming off the books when the new deal kicks in and the cap space league-wide increases. Al, Gerald, and now Marvin will be off the books in 2016.

Steph Curry is on the market that year. You want optimism? There's your optimism.

True.

If we're going to overpay and get close to the tax, this is the year to do it.

Next year we can just offer a MLE deal and bi-annual deal to fill out the roster along with our draft picks.

Don't be surprised, if he isn't qualified.

Jefferson was playing on a bum wheel in the playoffs and Biyombo was still only seeing 7 minutes per game (that's not enough to be an impactful player).

By the way try and add for flavor to the conversation instead of trying to poke fun at me.

I'm actually doing very well for myself right now. No complaints here.

I also asked this question in the other post but never got an answer.

- Also explain to me how you are getting rid of Hendo? I've seen everyone say, "just trade Hendo", "we can trade Henderson for him", "get rid of Hendo"...

- In reality, Henderson's value is so low that Orlando took back garbage for Afflao rather than taking on Henderson's contract.

I don't think Hendo can't be traded but he is a valuable bench player or 6th man. I agree that it's easy to say trade this person or that persons but harder to pull off. It's kind of like trying to figure out cap space a yr in advance without knowing all the variable don't ya think?? ;)

It's the only logical explanation I can come up with for all these huge* deals being given out. Not just here, but around the league. Notice a majority of them are 2 years in length.

 

* - "over market value"

Well we actually know the variable's because there are sites that have players deals for up to years unknown.

There was some speculation on my end, but it was calculated.

i.e. if Jefferson has another solid year he's probably going to opt out of $13.5, Kemba most likely not getting paid less than $8.5 per. Stuff like that was calculated.

However, six of those contracts were not. I got that straight from a few websites that show players salaries.

I know I'm just giving you a hard time, but I enjoy the numbers aspect as well and trying to fill out the roster. Plus looking at your numbers mean i don't have to look them up!

Hendo is hot garbage. See the playoffs see every other game he has played. No excuse for him to even be on this team

I just wish we would have not signed any big names and next year try again. 7 million freed up next year could really help us sign a big name FA and resign players in the future.

Exactly i agree, once we couldnt get Hayward i would have gave up and waited till next year. But noooo, we HAVE to show Al Jefferson we are serious about winning.

It's not so much Al but the current landscape of the Eastern Conference. There's no one team that you can definitively say will be in the finals next season and the one team on paper that looks the part is very young with a brand new coach.

 

Also, Lance is pretty much the only FA left that could fit the roster and still has lots of room to grow much like the Hayward signing. Lose out on Lance and I agree, simply fill out the rest of the roster at that point.
