I have no life lol... aka my family is out of town for the 4th... I might as well stay busy.

 

Ok really enjoy this thread so im glad you got time on your hands. 

 

WIth the way Cho is staggering contracts, I think we will be with the same team through 2016 + draft picks. We might pick up mid lvl Ramon Sessions type players, but with Kemba and Biz on the horizon I feel like the FO will want to use Ben Gordon's money to try and pay for both Kemba and Sessions. Biz hasn't shown enough for a raise so he will probably be around the same $4m-6m range. 

 

In 2016 we can use Al's money for MKG and possibly Zeller. Overall, spend it while we can!

 

2014 

Minus

Ben Gordon $13k 

Ramon Sessions $5k 

 

2015 

Plus new contracts to Kemba and Biz

 

2016

Al expires

I pretty much agree with everything you said.

 

In 2014 we are looking at approximately $18,200,000 dollars in cap space or $19,116,099 dollars in cap space depending on if Jeff Adrien is on the roster for this year. For the sake of the argument, we'll say that Adrien is kept on the roster this year.

 

- Gordon is most likely gone unless he wants to play for real cheap and is still okay being a backup on a very young team.

 

- I think Ramon will re-sign with us simply because he likes the area of the Carolina's. Sessions will be 28, I could see a 3yr/13.5million dollar contract (4.5 million per year) coming his way. This leaves us with $14,616,099 dollars in cap room.

 

- Adrien may or may not be brought back, if he is; it will be for less than a million. This leaves us with $13,616,099 dollars in cap room.

 

- Kemba and Biz are making a combine $6,000,000 dollars. Biz is probably looking at a $5,000,000 dollar deal, where Kemba is most likely looking at a deal worth $10,000,000 or $11,000,000 dollars. So realistically, you are going to want to hold out around $10,000,000 dollars from next years cap room to sign Kemba and Biyombo.

 

- We may sign a bargain bin free agent, but realistically... the only players we are going to be able to add are in the draft. I wouldn't be surprised if the Hornets packaged one of their first round draft picks and Brendan Haywood (expiring contract) for a good player that is still on their rookie salary, so that the Cats aren't forced to sign three draft picks if they actually end up getting all three.

If Charlotte gets all three of those draft picks next season that's going to cost around 7+ Million depending on where the Charlotte pick lands.

It's really going to all depend on Gerald Henderson's final contract as to what the next step will be... I want him to get paid, but as a fan; I want that contract to be as low as possible because it allows us a lot more flexibility if the contract is in the seven million dollar range instead of the nine or ten million dollar range.

 

However, with the Bucks finalizing a deal with O.J. Mayo, Gerald Henderson is really the only option left as far as big time shooting guards go.

 

After using advanced statistics, Gerald Henderson graded out as the second best shooting guard in this free agent class behind J.R. Smith.

 

We already walked away with the second best shooting guard in this free agency class, keeping the second best shooting guard in this free agency class would just be icing on the cake.

Yep, which could really hurt. That's why I wouldn't be surprised at all to see one of those picks (most likely Detroit's pick) moved along with Brendan Haywood for a player that is still on his rookie contract or at the very least a very cap friendly contract. 

 

I could see a draft day trade like the following going down... In the following trades, we essentially save two million dollars by trading the pick.

 

Brendan Haywood (expiring contract) and Detroit's pick for one of the following players with expiring contracts: Avery Bradley, Jordan Crawford, MarShon Brooks, Kyle Singler, C.J. Miles, or Kevin Seraphin.

 

Neither of the trades are really good for us, but the trade is more for the purposes of saving money.

 

If we're lucky, Detroit sucks ass this year.

I don't mean to scare people lol... but my original numbers were off and we are damn near at the salary cap.

 

The site I was using did not factor in qualifying and non-guaranteed contracts so I had to actually adds those.

 

Essentially, if Gerald Henderson asks for more than $8,000,000 we won't be able to afford him.

I don't mean to scare anyone, but with the signing of Jefferson and if Henderson signs (which will have to be for less that $8,000,000); we will be dangerously close to the cap.

 

The Bobcats seriously need to consider moving Haywood to free up some cap room.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
