Keeping Up With The Bobcats Salary Space

88 posts in this topic

I've updated my first post to include an alternate scenario for more money. CarPanFan brought up a good point about Adrien's contract that would allow the Bobcats to realistically offer up to (but no more) than $15,000,000 per year.

As accurate as you can get... (I just wanted to update this little thread with the correct info...)

 

With the signing of Jefferson and the amnestying of Tyrus Thomas...

 

- The Bobcats have a total salary of $45,226,112 wrapped up in: Al Jefferson, Ben Gordon, Ramon Sessions, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Bismack Biyombo, Kemba Walker, Brendan Haywood, Jeff Adrien, and Jeff Taylor.

 

- They currently have $13,273,888 in cap space.

 

- We will assume that Gerald Henderson's final deal is valued at $9,267,424... tacking on another five million dollars to our total salary leaving us at a total salary of $50,226,112 wrapped up in the following players: Al Jefferson, Ben Gordon, Ramon Sessions, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Bismack Biyombo, Kemba Walker, Brendan Haywood, Jeff Adrien, and Jeff Taylor.

 

- The Bobcats still need to sign Cody Zeller... we will value his deal at $3,894,240 (what Dion Waiters made last year), which brings the Bobcats total salary to $54,120,352 wrapped up in the following players: Al Jefferson, Ben Gordon, Ramon Sessions, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Gerald Henderson, Bismack Biyombo, Kemba Walker, Brendan Haywood, Jeff Adrien, and Jeff Taylor...

 

- This leaves the Bobcats with around $4,379,648 in cap space.

 

The Bobcats can increase this number to $5,295,747 with the release of Jeff Adrien and his non-guaranteed contract.

I'd be pretty upset if we gave Hendo a 9 mil contact after seeing JR's 4yr/24mil. And, I'm not compare Hendo to look at Evans or J.J. We'll clearly be overpaying Hendo at that price and he could very well become a "bad contract" in a year or two. At this time, Hendo isn't gaining much interest from other teams too.

J.R. took a pay cut to stay in New York, it was pretty well documented. You can't compare Hendo's contract to Smith's because Hendo won't be taking a pay cut to stay in Charlotte.

It's also incorrect that Hendo is not receiving interest. I've stated millions of times that RFA's will not start receiving interest until July 10th because that is the earliest that another team can offer them a contract. UFA's have the ability to agree on a contract way before RFA's, they just can't sign that contract until July 10th. This is also why you aren't seeing Pekovic's name very much either.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I just wouldn't throw a offer yet at Hendo unless other teams are really showing interests in signing him.

10 mil would be a ridiculous contract. 9 mil would mean that we put him on the same level as a Demar DeRozen. 8 mil would be ideally fair, and 7 would be great. 9 or above would be a bad contract in 2 years bc I can't see him as a long term answer on this team. Especially with the us having stability at PG, SF, PF, and Center that leaves SG as the most important position next season. SG is pretty much going to be address in the draft (Wiggins/Parker/Smart/Harrison). Unless you plan on paying 9 mil for a 6th man off the bench a year or two from now?

Agreed, and right now his qualifying offer is only at $4.2 million. If he truly doesn't receive much interest and his contract stays relatively low, I wouldn't be surprised if the Bobcats sent an offer Tyler Hansbrough's way.

    • 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

    • 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.
