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).
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.
