$20 mil under the cap
- $7 mil
----------
$13 mil left

Assuming we sign a backup point guard for the MLE ($5.5 mil) that takes us out of Stephenson sweepstakes.

Sorry bud.


What if we sign a player on the roster from last season? Like Pargo

I posted our cap breakdown in another thread but I will repost here with addition of Williams (assuming a flat $7,000,000):

 

Current salary: $50,312,999

Cap floor: $56,759,000

Salary Cap: $63,200,000

Tax Line: $76,829,000

 

Needed to hit floor: $6,446,001

Cap space: $12,887,001

 

Unless we can bring in 2 PG's for $887k Lance isn't gonna be here. We don't even have the Bird rights to Ridnour so even that isn't an option. No Lance, sorry SuperJ.

We overpaid.

Not only did we overpay but we didn't even manage to get a team option in the second year. For all we know Williams could be an awful starter (he was a backup in Utah) and then we are stuck with him for an extra year.

Pargo as your primary backup?

As fans we get caught in the now, when franchises are often thinking about the long game.

One could theorize that Gordon Hay was the "GUY" for the Hornets this offseason. Someone they considered the piece to make them contenders. With the Jazz fucking themselves in the ass by matching our offer the Hornets move to a position to stay in the hunt while creating future assests. Looking prepare for the next move to get their missing piece.

We don't have the Bird rights to Pargo. Pargo signed a 1 year deal last year. Ridnour I think we have the bird rights to, but do you want to reup with that?

Would his contract be considered an asset next season?


No.

People are finding out the hard way that expiring deals aren't that valuable any more.

Chicago can't even give away Carlos Boozer.

Hell yeah! I love me some Pargo. He was better than Sessions last year.

I was incorrect we do have Ridnour's bird rights. So I guess that is an option, though it's a horrible one.
