    Default Another move?

    Read that we're expected to make another move soon (Nate Taylor Tweet). We're currently at ~$76 million. NBA floor salary is $89 MM. Suggests we may be open to taking on salary this season. (I think we have to make the floor by the trade deadline.)

    Might this suggest ~$13 MM to address our wing depth?

    Terrence Jones?

    I thought we had like, 7 million in cap space? How can we be 13 million below the minimum if we have 7 million in cap space left?

    With the Salary Cap at $99 mil....we have about $6 mil in Cap Space to make a run at a Free Agent...or ( my guess ) use it to acquire assets between now and the 2017-2018 Trade deadline.

    Should have used the money to not stretch Ellis and be free and clear in 2018-2022

    Pritchard is on record that they haven't decided how to handle Ellis's contract yet.

    I'd still like to upgrade at starting SF and back-up C (I'm just not sold on GRIII and I think we're done with AlJeff). I keep starting at Portland's bloated salary and all their daggone forwards. Gotta wonder if KP's been working on a win-win there.

    We also likely have a room exception, right?

    Do you mean Trade Exception?

    Strummer or wintermute will have to confirm....but I couldn't find anything indicating that we have a Trade Exception.

    Nope, Taylor said he thinks they'll make another move AFTER waiving Niang.

    Looking at Spotrac....we are at $91 mil after waiving Niang....so we have about $8-ish in Salary Cap space.

    I would suspect that KP will be smart enough to use every penny of the Salary Cap space to improve the Team.

    Whose left on the FA Market that is worth pursuing?

    If not....I'm guessing we will be looking at using the Cap Space to acquire assets.

    Looking at the current Salary Cap situation, there are 5 Teams OVER the Luxury Tax ( $119 mil )

    Cavs ( $140 mil )
    Portland ( $136 mil - How on earth did they get this high while not contending? )
    GSW ( $135.8 mil )
    Wizards ( $125 mil )
    OKC ( $123.7 mil )

    I can see us using the Cap space to work out trades with them.

    That Portland number really is a head scratcher, especially when you consider that Evan freaking Turner and Alan Crabbe are a big part of that.

    Shabaaz or Terrence Jones or both. Waive Young, he useless.
    First time in a long time, I've been happy with the team that was constructed, and now they struggle. I blame the coach.

    Room exception is the exception given to teams that are under the cap. It's worth $4.328 million.

    We're pretty balanced 1-11 right now. Would be strange to add a 12th guy that just adds more to the cluster of guys who deserve solid NBA minutes. Depth and balance isn't bad but it isn't necessary to push it out to where we're headed.

    We're definitely adding another guy....just don't know who or at what position. It feels like we're logjammed in the front court, but something is telling me Tyler is coming back.
