    1) Yes. Although not 1.2M in extra cap room, just 0.7M, because for every empty roster slot, there is a minimum salary cap hold. The first round pick represents a "full" roster spot because it has it's own cap hold.

    2) We start with about 15M if neither signs. So if Lou stays for 8M as you assume here, and Amir for a pay cut (which I think is VERY optimistic) of about 5M, then you are left with only 2M. At which point you are better off acting as though you are over the cap and using the full MLE rather than using cap room. Reality is, if both stay, even on pay cuts, there's no way we end up with significant cap room. We'd need to let at least one walk, and the other to take a sweetheart deal to even have 10M to offer a free agent, and in the summer leading up to the cap boom, I don't think 10M gets you a Millsap, for example.

    Full MLE is 5.3 right? So does that give the total of 7.3 ish available?
    Sorry if these are stupid questions, really want to gather a full understanding . There must be a solid SF which can be broke free for a trade including GV and Bebe, Bruno looks like a better prospect just based on what has been seen. And I feel that Lou has shown and will continue to be a better piece than GV.

    You can either use cap space or the MLE, not both. So, no, it does not add up to 7M.

    No reason to use MLE if there is cap space. Its an exception to the soft cap

    Yeah, but the point is you can't use both. You can't sign a free agent with cap space and then another with the MLE.

    Noone should ever be trying to correct you on cap issues lol.

    Your word is gospel.
    "Bruno?
    Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.
    He's terrible."

    Hope you're wrong.
