So, I guess it really didn't make sense to sign Roberts before you went after Stephenson (if you do), like I said in the other thread.

Even if my angst ends up being unnecessary thanks to this information, I was still right, in spirit, and logically.


Even when you are wrong, you are right.

You are the hero.

When logical truth is your goal, then, yes.

Quite a lofty and specific goal.

It would make zero sense, logically, to sign Roberts before you go after Lance Stephenson, if you planned to. Anyone should know that's true. That's what I was arguing.

Wby not?. I am missing your logic. We have the exact same amount of spending room we had before the signing

When I see "CHA would wait to sign him to keep open as much space as possible" I interpret that as meaning they are waiting to sign him for some reason, and if they didn't "wait" to sign him, they wouldn't have the same amount of spending room.

It means you can sign him and go over the cap. So if we spend all the money under the cap he signs last even though we have no cap room.

You need to do it I BELIVE when you still have cap space. Not sure about that, but in terms of pursuing Lance it doesn't affect that at all

and moving Hopson's contract only a few hours later to create more cap room says they are trying to do something soon, IMO

You are waiting to sign him so you can do something else first. After you do that, then you can sign him over the cap. I know that. That's why I've said everything I've said, thus far, but you still have to "wait" until you've used up most of your other cap room before you do that.

 

MLE with no more cap space = $5.3M.

 

With some cap space = $2.something Million.

I think the logical thing about it is that we have him locked in now and can still pursue lance instead of pursuing lance and then taking whoever is left after that.

For all we know, Roberts might have been in talks with more than just us and would have been off the market had we waited. To say that "it would make zero sense" to sign him before Stephenson is making a statement that you don't have sufficient information to make.

They are doing exactly what logic says they should've done. Not sign him yet. It just so happens there's a way they could commit him without tying any money to him yet, and in light of that information, they are doing what they should do, which is just another version of what I said I would've done.

Bonnell has been a day late and a dollar short on everything this free agency period.

I think his source might be Woj ;)
