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.

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.

 

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...aries/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.

http://www.charlotte...-jefferson.html


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've pretty much said everything that he said, except I just proved that his numbers are inaccurate. I am willing to almost guarantee that the $46 million does not include Henderson's qualifying offer.

Why?

Well for starters I detailed it out for you in an above post. Secondly the Bobcats sent out an email to their season ticket holders that they would have $21 million in cap space (with the amnestying of Tyrus Thomas).

If you add Jefferson's contract of $13.5 million and replace Tyrus Thomas' eight million dollar contract with Getald Henderdon's eight million dollar contract, you get $21 million dollars....

Bonnell is wrong on this one.

I wouldn't worry too much, there is a lot of things NBA teams can do to get wiggle room.  I expect Jordan to pursue those if needed since we signed Jefferson, it basically means he's OK spending more money if it can help us.

Agreed, it is nice to see him start spending money... overall I think we'll be okay.

The Heat have 3 guys making 20+ mill each, if we really wanted to spend some money I'm pretty sure we can.  I doubt we will though but I wouldn't worry about keeping what we have and hopefully grabbing some decent bench players.

I doubt we re-sign Kemba next offseason, and I know we wont re-sign Biyombo

 

Guys on rookie deals dont really agree to extensions after 3 years unless they are a max guy where there is no negotiating on the contract

I think they love Kemba so unless he regresses this season he will be extended..if he could just attack like Tony Parker off pick and rolls with Zellar and Jefferson like the Spurs do...that would be ideal and Explosive....please come through Zellar...I want to like you so much.

He has 2 more years on his rookie deal, why extend him next year?

For those asking about Kemba, you don't extend Kemba next year; it you save money to extend him because he will be making around eight million dollars more than he is making now.

It's not like you can just resign him with the two million dollars from his expiring contract.

We get club options on both Biz and Walker next year for 7 million total, and then we can put qualifying offers to match the year after that, so I don't see any reason to extend either of them now. I think we're in pretty good shape. I don't know that we'll be able to max anybody out in near future, but Al Jefferson is realistically the best caliber free agent that would sign here anyway. And the fact that we didn't give him 4 years is a great move.

Was our MLE factored into the money we have available to spend?  I don't think we used any of it trying to sign Jefferson.  Mid-Level Exception will give us an additional 3.5M to spend and if we haven't used our Bi-Annual Exception, we may be able to add another 1.5-2M.

We're not over the payroll, the MLE doesn't apply here.

I'm not saying extend them (for the thousandth time lol)

 

What I'm saying is this...

 

Kemba graded out as one of the top seven point guards in the league last year, he will be due a big pay day... Unlike someone like Ramon Sessions who will probably sign a new contract for five million or less, Kemba will be looking for a raise in the neighborhood of eight to nine million dollars.

 

The only way to realistically afford him is to save money next year, or since we own his (and Biyombo's bird rights); go  into the luxury tax to sign them (except that we won't have to pay for being in the luxury tax because bird rights allow you to go over the salary cap to retain your own players).
