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.

 

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.

Cho is a stealth ninja.

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.

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

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.

Jordan has always maintained that he is willing to spend and has no problem paying the luxury tax if the team is good. Pay Lance now & worry about resigning others later. The cap is getting ready to jump up anyway.

We have acquired a bunch of cash through trades.

The most you can acquire is $3 mil per trade.

My guess is we got $2 mil from Miami for Napier, $1 mil for Powell, $1 mil for Christon, and $1 mil for Hopson.

That's an extra $5 mil for the organization.

Not too shabby lol.

That's pretty substantial. So basically we have made enough money through the trades that's we are only paying Marvin Williams 2 million. And those trades covered the rest. U hear that guys stop fretting over the 7 million dollar figure. We have basically gotten it paid for already lol
