    you're working on old numbers. $11 million in a $89 million salary cap is equivalent to a $8 million in a $67 million salary cap

    teams should be handing out maxes left and right now

    I agree. Per above, makes me question why they let Splitter go. He's a perfect 5 for this team.

    Well, Heats did get the Dragon for slightly under the max. That's good news and I know you are all happy for south Florida

    I feel like Mavs would be a good fit for JLin. That spread pick and roll offense

    kings getting saric out of that and sixers have rights to swap first round picks in two drafts. so sixers think they can do better than kings in 2 years...

    remember that time MCW, Embiid, and Nerlens flew to go watch Saric play? :lol:

    Edit: kings aren't even getting saric...


    Draymond Green got signed for $85 mill/5 years . That's a really good deal

    Thinking wishfully, I think it's a cap room move for Aldridge. It was made after SAS mtng with him.

    Splitter is a marginal player at best, and had too many injuries to be effective last year.

    Rumor is that LMA will announce for SAS after meeting with Knicks.

    I honestly don't even think it's a bad deal with the rising cap next season. My comment was just a broad one about how teams are throwing money around like candy this offseason. Teams spent a combined $1.4 billion on day 1 of free agency alone.

    True. That deal may look downright reasonable after the cap rises. So Monroe's buying long term security at the cost of additional dollars...and playing in milwaukee

    Pacers sign Monta Ellis to a 4-year, $44 million deal with a player option after the third year.

    Nice. I was reading all this talk that they needed to trade Hibbert to get a decent backcourt player, but this is better for them

    suns just traded marcus morris to the pistons to clear up cap space for lamarcus aldridge

    ...

    only one team is going to get lamarcus guys... what's your plan B if lamarcus doesn't come... you're going to have oodles of cap space and nobody to spend it on

    lol that sucks for the morris twins. just last year suns management handled their free agency brilliantly allowing them to divy up a pool of $52 million over 4 years; ultimately getting markieff at a cheap $8million/year. Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough done kill them wi' their love
