Hornets Salary Cap Update - Post-Hendo Signing

I have updated our salary cap spreadsheet after finalizing Hendo's contract this weekend.  Appears we  will have roughly $16-17 million dollars next off-season to replace Ben Gordon, Ramon Sessions, & Jeff Adrien who I would assume we do not resign as free agents when their contract expires.

 

Leaving us with 1 PG (Kemba), 2 SG's (Taylor & Henderson), & 1 SF (MKG) in the backcourt going into a deep free agent off-season and a highly acclaimed rookie draft class.

 

A scoring SF should be at the top of our priority list either in a trade this season or in next year's off-season (via draft or free agency).  Cho has kept our salary cap flexible which will allow us to choose to get serviceable depth or go for another high priced free agent next off-season and add scraps around the core.  Cho should be commended for all he has done and I am excited to see the next big move we make.  

 

I think there is enough potential on the team now to make Charlotte an appealing destination, we just need to prove it next season by fighting for a playoff spot & potentially stealing one.  I don't see tanking in this teams plans for next season.

Nice.  I think Hendo should be in green though I believe since it's a player option.

You are correct.  My mistake... make a mental note as I don't feel like updating and changing the picture.

Also Jeff Adrien does not have a player option.

He's simply on a non-guaranteed contract.

Edit: it looks like you beat me to it.

Quick question, is there a reason that Adriens and Taylor's numbers are gray or not.

I wasn't sure if that indicated something.

I think Adrien is on a team option contract this year (non-guaranteed) and JT is on a team option contract next year.

The gray $$$ indicate non-guaranteed contract values.  These are guys the teams basically hold an option for although in some cases a portion of the salary is guaranteed.

 

In Jeff Adrien's case, I believe he is playing for the minimum and it is completely non-guaranteed.

There is no reason that Charlotte could not become a Pacers or Grizzlies type team with depth and young talent without getting one of the "blue chippers" slated in next year's draft.  When Zeller backed out of last year's draft to play his sophomore season, he was the consensus #1 pick for this draft.  Things change dramatically over the course of a season and there will be a new name in the draft in the top 10 next year that you have never even heard of.  The sky is not falling if we make the playoffs.

Well said and saying the sky is falling if we make the playoffs is unique to this team lol..

    • Man, that is scary as poo! If they are dumb, and post it on their social media accounts, a bunch of them.  Most kids aren't very smart about how the world works at their age, and they will get scared.  There will be a few hold outs who don't "snitch," but more of those kids will want to cut a deal to stay out of jail. What sucks is that there's very little that can be done to intelligently solve the problem.  Sure, the John Wayne types will say "try me, punk" as they pull out their guns.  Others will blame the families and communities (which do have a significant share of the blame).  While others still will blame the greater culture and society at large.  What leads kids to this?  Is it media?  Poverty?  Boredom?  Easy money?  Internet fame? In my time, I knew a fair number of teenage felons.  A few opened up to me about why they took to crime was that they didn't see any other option.  Who either fails to show the kids that there is an opportunity beyond crime or offers them that chance?  I will say, when you start to dig into the mind set of a person in poverty (white, black, everything else), you see a lot of causes that are the same.
