Well Bonnell pretty much shot down the idea saying he doubt it happens... but it was a good overrall idea that the Huddle came up with and agreed upon.

 

That sucks, I don't see why you wouldn't do it though. I really thought I had a genius Idea. lol

I just ran some numbers, and there is no way we could take on Biedrins contract... it's simply wouldn't work. Even retracting Henderson's offer wouldn't allow us to take on his contract. It would put us over the salary cap and into the luxury tax by about $4,000,000.

I thought they had 13 million Counting Hendo's QO, but not Zeller's contract. If that's right they could take on both Barnes and Biedriens salary.  Zeller and Hendo's contract would cancel each other out and leave team around 13 million under the cap while they would be picking up only 12 million in salary from Golden State.

I think you're right, I may have ran them wrong.

Golden State is reportadly saying that they have found takers for Bogut, Jefferson and Biedrins. I wonder what they had to give up to get rid of each of them. Also being reported that the Lakers are now prepared to do a sign and trade involving Howard if they loose him in FA.

 

 

Hall of Fame writer Peter Vecsey, in the wake of ESPN.com's story about the Warriors' feverish attempts to create cap space, reported via his Twitter feed Thursday night that Golden State officials do believe that they have found trade destinations for Bogut, Jefferson and Biedrins should Howard choose Golden State and the Lakers refuse to engage them in sign-and-trade talks.

Barnes can't dribble no way he can play shooting guard.

He definitely proved that misconception wrong in the playoffs.

See, this is why you dont have to use your cap space immediately to sign free agents.  Their are great trade opportunities to be had with team who want to shed salary if you have the cap space to make it work

Yea, but in our case we are looking at a long term answer in Jefferson. We're not looking to dump off contracts next year.

If D12 really ends up in GSW, tough luck for Houston. Big Al could've help that Rockets team a lot. Too bad we have him.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
