Hornets salary cap situation

Whoever the backup PG is better be a damn good 3 point shooter.

That is possible, but not very smart considering we will have to resign both Al and Kemba next year (though we will have the bird rights to both). Plus it would have to be lower than $11,000,000 in year one considering that would only leave us with about $1,500,000 to sign 2 PG's.

Well we could bring Pargo back at minimum as our 3rd string or use the Bird rights on Ridnour. Use the 1.5 million to sign a backup. We could also attempt to move Neal or even Henderson (despite my support for him, if it's him or Born Ready, I chose Born Ready).

As for Walker/Jefferson. For one we have to decide if Walker is worth whatever he asks for. We could be in a similar spot that Phoenix is in with Eric Bledsoe. I don't think Jefferson will be much of a problem to resign honestly. The cap space he is taking up now could alone be almost enough to resign him.

Thank you sir. It took a little bit of work, but I enjoy working through the cap numbers for some reason.

Wanted to ask. Do we still own Tolliver's, CDR's, and Pargo's rights as well?

Hopefully we wise up and let Kemba walk if he ask for more than 7. Steph is coming

No to all of them. To own bird rights the player has to be under contract with you for 2 years consecutively (not necessarily the same contract) OR they transfer from an old team with a trade (hence why we have Ridnour's, he signed a 4 year deal back in 2010).

Just ran a few numbers and assuming Al gets a salary increase in the $18 mil range and Kemba gets an extension in the $8.5 mil range.

We will have no space next year.

The MLE will be our only option...

Just running a mock roster for 2015...

PG: Walker, Back-Up Signed This Year, Third String Vet

SG: Henderson, Hairston

SF: MKG, Taylor, Draft Pick

PF: Williams, Zeller, Vonleh

C: Jefferson, MLE

Then the other two spots might be filled by summer league guys. Our cap space situation for the next two years took a hit with that Williams deal.

Taylor would also have to be extended next year or we would have to use the MLE or bi-annual on a backup SF.

Yeah I gave Taylor a 2yr/$4 mil deal.

After looking at the draft class that might be the best idea. Use the bi-annual on a back up SF, draft a shooting guard, and use the MLE on a back up center.

That sounds about right. Damn, we better hope a couple of MKG, Vonleh, Zeller, Kemba, and Hairston turn into really good players.

    • So what you work for is not yours.? Really? You don't work for money? Just out of the goodness of your little Socialist heart. You are swell guy. I am sure you have volunteered to give everything you have worked for away. The stats are from sow we call the the Federal Government. You know, the one the taxpayers feed. Yep, what i work for is mine. You didn't earn it, I did.
    • Cam Newton had the franchise OT, clutch TE, and WR needed to succeed from 2011 to 2013 in the passing game. The problem is over the past 3 seasons when Cam has developed into an MVP candidate. Cam has been without a franchise OT and a starting WR that can catch more than 50% of the passes thrown to them. The closest he came to a dependable WR the past 3 seasons was Jerricho Cotchery, which in my opinion was just enough to get Cam enough of a passing game to lead the offense to the highest scoring offense in the league. Relying on one dependable player to compliment Cam in the passing game with Greg Olsen is not going to help the running game, the run option threat Cam needs to loosen up the defense, or the dependability of the passing game to convert 1st downs. Cam needs a franchise LT to trust against speed rushers and a receiver who can catch more than 60% of his targets - preferably in the slot. In 2015, Cam had the luck of a schedule void of premier speed rushers and Cotchery to lean on come 2nd/3rd and long. When will the front office seriously address these key offensive issues? I know people do not care for Shula, but Shula is not even one of the top 3 reasons for offensive inefficiency.
    • So you also believe David has a higher ceiling than OJ? To each his own. They caught just around the same amount of balls and had similar production this past year. One a safety net and the other a third a fourth option. I like Njoku a lot just think Howard is a step above at this premature stage of their professional careers as a prospect.
