Hornets sign Brian Roberts

101 posts in this topic

I'm doing something I dislike ala the tard madden opinion........ given my great winning % in deep deep fantasy leagues, I owe roberts some love. Before my season started I needed pgs(blew my load on 5 players in 20 player auction league) so I did my normal 20 min research on the super sleepers, roberts name popped up. Put him on the watch list and then eric bledsoe got hurt, I needed a pg real real bad.

Picked up roberts cause of upside, three games later he became a 30 min a night player. He helped me win the league along with lucky wavier pickups. Hes about the perfect cheap backup pg. Why do some hate this?

You can also use some sort of exception even if you have cap room for 2.73 million or so, so it is possible it doesn't count against cap number... or something like that

 

Someone else explain

Not sure about that one.

We could use the rookie exception and sign Stephenson first then go over to sign Vonleh and Hairston (Omega would have to verify if this is allowed).

I repeat: ...it's still too much. Where is he so great at that the stretch 4 had to be him?

 

If the Hornets wanted Lance Stephenson and he wanted $15M and refused to budge, you know what the Hornets would do? They would cease negotiating with him.

 

If Marvin Williams required $7M a year, they should've moved on to the next "PF" on their list. Like someone said in the Williams thread, if they were going to pay him $7M, they might as well have just given that to McRoberts if they "really wanted him back" like they claimed. 

 

Williams should've gotten $5.5 - 6M at the most. 

 

No one wanted to even give McRoberts that much, and Williams is a better scorer, but he doesn't bring as much heart, hustle and passing as McRoberts did. 

 

If you can't see the hypocrisy in this deal, check your vision. 

 

It reeks of desperation. 

 

14 million < 15 million

 

The Hornets saved a million dollars

There is.  There is an exception since 2011 that can be used by teams still under the cap. 2.732 million for this season.

 

I will venture a guess that this might be that

 

Now.... someone tell me what that means

According to projected rookie contract numbers, we are only due about 3 mil for Noah and pj so that would be close
