    probably going to merge this with something else shortly but for now....
    ----------------------------2013--------- 2014 ---------- 2015

    Quentin Richardson ---------1.4m ---------*1.45m-------- *1.5m
    Julyan Stone----------------800k ---------*900k
    Steve Novak----------------3.75m---------3.45m--------- 3.75m
    Marcus Camby--------------4.4m----------*4.3m
    Tyler Hansborough-----------2.5m----------2.5m

    * = non guaranteed

    Pyscho Ts salary is an estimate based off of tweets suggesting "part of the MLE was used to sign him"

    1.) Nothing here is untradeable
    2.) Everyone has a specific skillset
    3.) Only one of these toys with the notion of "upside"
    I can't believe that the Pacers, at team who apparently wants to win a championship soon could not fit $2.5M in the budget.

    You could actually trade everybody else and play that lineup (plus JV) as your starters to ensure that you got a top 3 pick in 2014. Nobody could top that tank.
    Back to the video games with you.

    Reading between the lines of the Tweets from Lewenberg and MacKenzie, I get the feeling that MU won't proactively 'tank' heading into the season, but all bets are off if this core stumbles out of the gate in the first half of the season. A poor start followed by a trade-deadline firesale is still an effective tank, without the karma associated with purposefully tanking before the season even starts.
    If he's looking for cap dumps those will be available at the deadline. If he's looking for a shakeup, so too will other teams by the time the deadline rolls around. Sitting and waiting to see what happens actually makes a lot of sense at this point no matter the goal.

    I thought he looked gassed several times this season
    There was a Casey interview a while back where he said Lowry was in the worst shape of his career when this season started. It was up on realgm I think but I can't find it there, here is a forum that has the quote.

    Rinse and Spin....and repeat constantly by the newspaper scribes.

    As in his opening news conf. is Ujiri REALLY going to tell these guys/us what his plan is? Is he going to name shopping names if indeed he is? What is he supposed to say in answer to impatient questions? The answer seems to be typically identical....anyone is available at a price to improve the team (for other GMs consumption), I am not going to give my players away (for other GMs and us), perfectly happy to begin the season with this team (for GMs and players on team showing confidence). He has to address all constituencies when answering these questions.

    This is the first day of f/a signings. There are still some value names to be signed. Teams who miss out on them have to fallback to trading possibilities. In the immediate term I see this period extending for at least a month/maybe shorter of transaction activity before there is some certainty about the team content starting the season. He is leaving his options open. He gains nothing by telling anyone what his true opinion of the team is (we have only TL's) but speak in generalities. I would have been disappointed if he did otherwise.

    Interesting point of view on not taking a chance and tanking: "what if some of them stay in school? then what do we do?"

    All of these things he's saying. His opinions. They could change 6 months from now..

    Things I took from this.

    1.) He is gearing up to have a much flexibility as humanly possible in 2015

    2.) adamant about not taking on any long term contracts. Which makes it tough to tank when you wont take back shit contracts.

    3.) Only tanking that is going to occur will be of the natural variety. I.E. we just end up plain sucking. As he says its win-win if we suck we win if we don't we win.
