NY Knicks Salary FAQ

I wanted to give an opportunity for the P&T community to ask Salary Cap related questions.  Let me hear 'em and I'll do the best I can.  I actually created a site called 'hoopsmoney.com', which is dead now, that had a database of all nba salaries (I had a lot of time at work...) and worked Larry Coon's FAQ like a fun bag.  Figured this would be a nice forum to iron out some of the questions.

 

 Some quick notes:

1. I hear TIMMAY's contract is actually only guareenteed for the 1st year.  I couldn't find the link, but will post it up as soon as I do.
-Significance: Knicks can cut him after this year and it wouldn't count against the cap, maintain cap flexibility

2. Felton's a 2 year contract. 
- Significance: Knicks can evaluate over next 2 years and pay accordingly (similar to the Duhon situation).

3. For the David Lee S&T, we get an expiring deal in Buike, and short term contracts with Anthony Randolph and Ronny.

4. Curry and Buike's contracts are set to expire. 

All that to say, we haven't committed to anyone for more then 2 years and got TONS better and maintained cap flexibility for FA pick ups/trades for next 2  years.  Well played Donnie.

Below is a spreadsheet that I made (I created one for all 30 teams) from my old website.  It's interactive, so you can input salaries, change salary cap #'s, etc.  I seriously had way too much time on my hands.

Feel free to ask away and I'll try and answer.

 

FYI: I'm STOKED for this season.  Considering the last couple of years, or 10, I'm excited to root for a cast of likable, tough SOB's who wanna run the court and slam it down your throat.  Also I like the defensive toughness the group brings and the bigs we're bringing in.  Wish we had some better 3pt shooters, but other then that, I'm CRAZY for this team. 

 I can't wait for Felton to break DWade's knee caps ala Livingston, find a cutting Danilo, who punches Lebron in the face to get free, then throws an alley-oop for Amare, as he teabags Bosh and makes Bird-ass's head explode as A.Randolph is crying on the sidelines in both joy and sadness.  This is gonna be awesome.
