Hornets salary cap situation

12 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

I have referred to my personally made cap figures a few times so I figured I may as well go ahead and make a thread about this considering some people seem to have unrealistic expectations about our cap situation.


Here is our position breakdown as of right now. I am assuming Lance Stephenson (woot) signed for exactly $9,000,000 per, Marvin Williams' contract is a flat $7,000,000, Brian Roberts contract is the $2,750,000 or the RMLE, we cut Hopson who we got from Cleveland,  both our rookies sign for exactly 100% of the rookie scale (from realGM), and all of these contract figures are via HoopsHype.


Here are the salary cap figures released on the 10th after moratorium:

Cap floor: $56,759,000
Salary Cap: $63,100,000
Tax Line: $76,829,000

Positional breakdown (sorted by salary, not personal preference):

PG (3): Kemba Walker ($3,452,183) / Brian Roberts ($2,750,000 [RMLE]) / Jannero Pargo ($1,500,000)
SG (4): Lance Stephenson ($9,000,000) / Gerald Henderson ($6,000,000) / Gary Neal ($3,250,000) / PJ Hairston ($958,100)
SF (2): Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ($5,016,960) / Jeff Taylor ($915,243)
PF (3): Marvin Williams ($7,000,000) / Cody Zeller ($4,030,560) / Noah Vonleh ($2,103,500)
C (2): Al Jefferson ($13,500,000) / Bismack Biyumbo ($4,086,453)
And finally here is our own salary information:
Current salary: $60,812,999
Cash needed to hit floor: We passed the floor
Cap space: $2,287,001
A couple of notes:
1. We own the bird rights to Luke Ridnour, so theoretically we could go over the cap to sign him.
2. All of the space and total salary numbers were done by me and my calculator, so feel free to tell me of any mistakes you see.
3. Theoretically we can use the mid-level exception and bi-annual exception to sign players as well once we're over the cap.
Edit: Now includes signing of Roberts
Edit 2: I changed this to have Roberts at the room MLE
Edit 3: Added the Lance signing!
Edit 4: Added Pargo
I will update this thread as we sign any additional players.

Cats vs Hawks 4/14

Figured I would go ahead and start the game thread since there is a little news already. The Hawks are resting Millsap, Carroll and Korver.

Hawks will rest Paul Millsap, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver tonight vs. Bobcats. #ATLHawks


Kemba should be ready to go tonight.


Kemba Walker (groin injury) got through shootaround fine and is expected to play versus Hawks tonight.

Al Jefferson is the Eastern Conference player of the month

Big Al is getting some love from the NBA. Nice to see him, and our team represented.

Cats vs. Rockets 3/24

This should be a good litmus test coming off that great Portland game. We could really use a win, but Houston is a fantastic team.
