Bosh I was speaking hypothetically, I too agree that Jo was the better move considering the circumstances, but it got me thinking when I read that article cos I remember this time last yr how everyone was harping on about how that is exactly the type of player we need etc etc.

hypothetically, if we had traded wallace for tj str8 up, we'd still have about 10/11 mil to sign another good player ( wallace's contract is around 9mil yes? and Jo's is 20+) and also be able to trade Rasho+17th pick + whatever for someone else.. that was the thought process anyway, but yeah, theres very little that will trump having a boatload of cash to spend in the 2010 offseason.


actually, we won't have the difference. we're 70 million, the cap is around 59 million. so if we had wallace, we'll still be over the cap. we'll hae 60. we can try to get rid of rasho, which will leave us at 54, but to sign a first round will be 56 million. add up the other players we'll need to sign and we'll be back at 6 million which will leave us with the mid level exception again.

How so?

I havent looked up the contracts or anything, so you could be right, but I assumed if we had Wallace for the 9+ in place of ONeal for the 20+, wouldn't we have the difference to spend on someone else, assuming also that we still trade Rasho.


Ok.  We have no cap space right now.  I don't know the exact number, but lets say its 60 million in salaries (the cap is 50 something).  If we trade for Wallace, we lose 8 million (Ford) and gain 8 million (Wallace), so our cap is still at 60 million, ie, no space to sign free agents.   When we trade for O'Neal we lose about 20 million in contracts, and gain about 20 million with O'Neal.  No change.  Still at around 60 million.

The ONLY way to get cap room would be to trade away a player and receive nothing in return.  This is only possible when trading to teams under the salary cap.

Actually I do not believe the cap is 59.  It has not been announced what it is for the next season yet.

1) I never said that.   I said whoever picks the Celts is retarded.

2) You're stupid regardless of whoever you picked.

3) You disagree with what I said about the salary cap?

4) What happened to the special account you made just to harass me?  Sad you got discovered?

I don't know if its 60 million, I have no idea.  I'm not trying to say you're wrong, just that I don't think its been set yet.  I think that information comes out in a few days.

Do you have a link?  Not that I doubt you, I just want a site that gets that kind of news.  I haven't seen it on espn and stuff.

to be honest. In my xbox 360 version of nba live 08, the salary cap is 58 million in dynasty mode. But i'll try to find another resource

07/08 salary was 55.6 million dollars. Not 100 % sure on 08/09. But i have a hunch it's 58 million.

it's 59 million last year an nba news guy that does blogs said. (i read his blogs, and he writes for the star). and it won't increase by that much this year, so prabably around 60 million.

Actually I just checked, the salary cap last year was 55.6 million.  Not 59 million.
