No country for old men.
Stretching Fields and Hayes gets you enough cap space to sign those two IF you let Patterson and Vasquez and de Colo walk for nothing. And IF Deng AND Lowry would take about 10M each.
Personally, I offer 5 years and 50 million, gladly (less, obviously, if negotiations suggest it can be done). Frontloaded for sure. No player or team options.
If he pushes for more per year,...
Frontloading does not hurt re-signing Patterson. We have his Bird Rights. Same goes for GV, NDC. Your point about the cap increasing with time is just another reason to frontload - that means you...
50 frontloaded can't be quite as frontloaded as you hope (although it is close). Best you can do is:
45/5 is a little more problematic.
I don't think we can. We don't have the cap space to sign him outright, and would need to send assets back CLE's way if we do a S+T. Deng wants max money, and even if he doesn't get it, he's not...
A big presence inside will be absolutely necessary in the playoffs, and post defense against CHA or WAS will be the key to winning. So Jonas gets my vote (Amir brings what he brings).
Since the Gay trade, the team's offense PPP is 111.4 with DD on the court. 109.9 off the court.
Since the Gay trade, the team's defense PPP is 104.9 with DD on the court. 106.5 off the court.
And they can't extend him at 10-12 M per until July. If he wanted to extend before the draft, it would be for 7M per year, which will not happen.
That's from 2001. In 2006 the rules were updated to 15 players / 12 active / actives set from game to game.
Here's the memo:
Where are we getting the "no going back" idea? You can change who is active and inactive each game.
If they sign and trade, then they are hardcapped - it would be VERY difficult for them to field a team if they manage to swing a sign and trade for Lowry. And that aside, sign and trade is only an...
If Melo walks, the Knicks are right up against the tax and can't sign anyone. If he re-signs, they are close-to-Nets-level crazy in the tax and can't sign anyone. Knicks are not a threat for Lowry...
Nah, we're 20th or so over the past month, but cumulatively, we are still top 10 or 11. Prior to the last month we were floating close to 4th for a while.
Significantly so. About 108 DRTG with him and 100.5 DRTG without since the trade.
He's been better lately though - since Mar 1st, it's more like a 4 point swing than an 8 point one.
I personally despise Hansbrough - for all the activity he brings, it yields so few results, and he's a net negative defensively providing very little help and not really doing much in way of post...
Rule 12B, Section I-e.
Plumlee's block is legal.
Yep. Done with cable. Just canceled it. Ballstreams for me.
Sure, but the plea deal won't happen in April. April will be a disclosure court date, then the actual pleas will probably be months later. JV won't even be at the April court date in all likelihood.
Funny thing about that LBJ play - Plumlee probably didn't foul him, seemed clean enough to me, but Joe Johnson definitely reached in and fouled him and that usually gets called.
Individual DRTG is 108 (one of the worst on the team). Team DRTG with him on the floor is 99.4 (one of the best on the team).
Are you aware of what a petition is? It's called "signing a petition."
2 in a row. They haven't lost 3 in a row yet.
Not really cool petitioning to put someone out of a job.
DD was a third (or lower) option his first year, and never got close to those efficiency numbers.
I was quoting his individual ORTG and DRTG, which are much less effected by team impacts than...
