To make the offer, the Raps must have the cap space. However, if NY signs him to the deal ($6.3M per season, forget poison pill, or $6.05, $6.32, $6.1 - 3 years/$18.97M) and sends him to Toronto, then we are all good.
40 mil in Salary
16 mil in holds
14 mil in exemptions
Assuming a cap of 58. We need 47 mil to land Fields and Lowry The math is close but 16 mil in holds plus 7 mil TPE relinquished gives us 47 mil
Are you thinking holds are not a factor in trades?
There may be a chance to hold on to the TPE, but the MLE would be gone??
If Raps could get Fields in S&T, they still have MLE and TPE.
Ok I see your point.
Tomorrow should be interesting
I think you are getting stuck because you're adding the $7.6M value of the TPE to the total cap-holds/team salary, which you don't need to do. If you look at the list of cap-holds on shamsports.com, you'll notice that the TPE isn't included in any calculations. A TPE's greatest benefit is enabling a team to add salary beyond the cap.
sheridanhoops I can predict, from talking to numerous sources, that every single offer sheet except Landry Fields' will be matched.
With Bayless signing with Memphis, things just became much more clear:
committed salaries: $43.211
Calderon, Bargnani, Amir, Kleiza, DD, JJ, ED, Ross, Forbes
cap holds: $6.702M
Weems, JV, Gray
Raps sign Fields at $6.3M per year.
These numbers put the Raps at committed salary at $53.213M. This means the Raps are $169k away from having the MLE. Seems to me they should totally renounce Weems - unless the numbers are not right - as that would remove his cap hold and give them the MLE.
Trade for Lowry and Raps are at $57.463M.
I think the MLE and TPE are both gone UNLESS Gray's rights are kept and he is signed with half the MLE leaving the other half ($2.5M) available. If MLE and TPE are both gone, room exception is what signs Gray.
