For real lol, Henderson needs to cut us a break.

We realistically need a back-up power forward (Josh McRoberts) to complete the roster...

We will most likely be going into the luxury tax to fill out the roster... Going into the luxury tax is not necessarily a bad thing (you do have to pay the league for every dollar amount you are over), but it's embarrassing when you suck...

After doing some research, I think we will be alright...

Because Gerald Henderson is a restricted free agent and the NBA features a soft cap rather than a hard cap, the Bobcats will be able to keep Henderson because of this thing called Bird Rights.

Bird rights allow teams to exceed the salary cap to retain their own players.

Since the Bobcats own Henderdon's bird rights, they can exceed the salary cap to retain him.

However, by technicality; if the Bobcats want to sign anyone else, they need to do it before Gerald Henderson signs. If they sign someone after Gerald Henderson signs, that will put us in the luxury tax.

I hope this helps a little.

I don't see Hendo being a long term answer and that probably is how the FO sees it too. If he's lucky and sign elsewhere for more that's good for him but don't think Cho is going to give him anything more than 6 mil. He's just not worth that price and more than likely he will be replace especially with how this team is being built right now. SG is the needed position next year.

I'd give Hendo a 3 year deal worth 18.75 Million, that would have him making 6.25 million a season. That'd be about the max I'd give him. Giving him that deal would put the Bobcats at 56 million and some change.

Jefferson can’t formally be signed (and the Bobcats can’t comment) until the NBA’s moratorium period ends on July 10. The Bobcats have informed power forward Tyrus Thomas that he will be waived under the NBA’s amnesty provision once the moratorium ends.

Using amnesty on Thomas means the remaining two seasons and approximately $18 million on Thomas’s contract won’t count against the Bobcats’ salary cap. It’s difficult to precisely calculate the Bobcats’ projected payroll after dropping Thomas and adding Jefferson. But it appears to be roughly $46 million (including Henderson’s qualifying offer as a restricted free agent).

Next season’s salary cap is projected at about $58.5 million per team.

I still don't understand how the heat can 3 players with max contracts which should take up over 75% of their entire salary yet they still have money to sign basically anyone they want. 

 

 

We don't even have one max contract and yet we're basically broke.

Here is what each players contract is slated to pay him next year...

 

Al Jefferson: 13,500,000

Ben Gordon: 13,200,000

Ramon Sessions: $5,000,000

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: $4,809,840

Bismack Biyomob: $3,217,680

Kemba Walker: $2,709,720

Brendan Haywood: $2,000,000

Jeff Adrien: 916,099

Jeff Taylor: $788,872

 

Add that up and you get: $46,142,211

 

Gerald Henderson (Guestimate Contract): $8,000,000

Cody Zeller (Guestimate Contract): $3,894,240

 

Add those up and you get: $11,894,240

 

Add the two totals and you get: $58,036,451

 

Subtract $58,500,000 (Salary Cap) from the Bobcats Total Salary $58,036,451: $463,549 in cap room

 

Welcome to cap hell Bobcat fans!!!

 

I don't really see how it's cap hell with Henderson, Gordon, and Sessions coming off the books after this season. We may go into the luxury for one year so that we can sign an all star level big. I'd say it's worth it.

They go into the luxury tax plus a lot of the role players take pay cuts to play for them. Also James, Wade and Bosh make a little less then the Maximum contract for their years.   For instance next season they have over 85 million committed towards the cap. http://hoopshype.com/salaries/miami.htm

We will most likely re-sign Sessions, and next year you are going to want to think about re-signing Biyombo and Walker. Biz will receive a deal around the five million dollar range and Kemba could be looking at a deal around the $11,000,000 dollar range. That would literally be most of our cap room for next year.
