Hornet trade Scotty Hopson to Pelicans

It's still a good trade though. You could either flat out cut him and get nothing for it except for cap space.

Or you could trade him and pick up cash as well as cap space.

Releasing equals cap space

This trade for cash equals same cap space and puts money into owners pockets. Therefore if we were to slightly go over cap, owner had a little extra money to put towards that.

 

So it could, potentially, help the cap situation in the end?

I guess NO wanted him and wants to keep him, or maybe they need him to facilitate a trade to make the numbers work.

I have a feeling if we sign Lance it's gonna come out of left field. There won't be any reports of him visiting or us contacting them, etc. It'll just break with a tweet from Adrian or Stein saying we've agreed to terms with him.

What can they do with that "more money"?

 

Arena upgrades, pay staff, etc...

 

Pay off MJ's gambling debts if he happens to be in Vegas with the team...

Cash considerations will not help the cap.

It's money that the organization receives and pockets. It does not increase our cap space or hurt it. It's simply more money for the organization.

They can use it on whatever they like, including buying picks.

I guess if we went into the lux tax we could use that cash to pay the debt that we owed.

Cap is the same as if we cut him. Extra cash in owners pockets is where the trade helps. MJ can use that towards anything he wants including using to help pay salaries of players, employees at the arena, arena updates, or whatever he chooses.

And think about it is saying that. He's implying if we go into luxury tax that Jordan may use the money from this trade to help pay off the tax.

I think we realize it dosent help nor affect the cap. Just straight cash homey

If we go into the tax, sure he can use it on that.

Or he can use it to help pay for Marvin William's new deal, or to upgrade the arena, or pay the staff, it's his money now lol.
