    I'm not completely clear on our salary situation for this year. I know next summer we are going to be way under, but do we have any more money to spend other than the MLE this year?

    Doesn't it seem like Jamaal Magloire is a free agent every year?

    Presuming Hibachi and Jamison are both headed back to DC...yeah...pretty much.

    The restricted crop is obviously considerably better, but we're probably not paying enough to pry any of those guys away from their current team, although Biedrins would be a god's send.

    Maybe a few of the "other notables" could be in play for us though.

    Meanwhile, Okafor, Iggy and Ben Gordon are giant idiots.

    Without counting how much we sign Brandon and Roy to, we owe a total of $67,037,429 to 14 players and could go up to about $70 mil by signing Brandon and Roy to their rookie contracts for a total of 16 players.

    Murphy - $10.126984 mil
    Dunleavy - $9.0 mil
    Rasho - $8.4 mil
    Ford - $8.275 mil
    Marquis - $6.8642 mil
    Tinsley - $6.75 mil
    Foster - $5.5 mil
    Jack - $3.08424 mil
    Granger - $2.329805 mil
    Baston - $1.9764 mil
    Diener - $1.62 mil
    Shawne - $1.57296 mil
    Graham - $826,269
    McRoberts - $711,571
    Brandon - $1.75 mil ????
    Roy - $1.25 mil ????

    I'm guessing that Brandon will probably start off with a rookie salary of about $1.75 mil and then Roy with about $1.25 mil for the 2008-2009 season.

    At best.....I'm guessing that we will be buying both Tinsley and McRoberts out so that we can get to 14 players and will then look to package Marquis and Shawne in some "2 for 1" deal for an additional Frontcourt player.

    I've suggested it before......for this season.....but I think the best that we are going to be able to do is to sign Croshere to come in as a 5th/6th rotational Big Man that can come in for about 5-10 minutes a game to provide some rest for Murphy and Foster. Otherwise....given our Financial situation.....we are going to do very little when it comes to making any FA moves.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    There is one guy on the list that I wouldn't mind seeing as a Pacer, if we could get him to come cheap. PJ Brown. He could really help out the frontline for this year. Some guy like that, a skilled veteran big man, would be the most realistic option I think. I am sure Boston will give him the league minimum though, and it's not much of a choice for him between us and them.

    For DC's sake I really hope that they have some insurace on Arenas. They are offering him 100 Million over 6 years. I really don't think that he will be 100% like he has been in recent years.

    The Wizards just handed $150 million to two players who don't play defense... No wonder they'll never get anywhere in the playoffs. Hopefully Nick Young blossoms into a star at the 2.

    Defense wins championships, why don't these teams get it? There's the concept of being loyal to your fanbase and keeping the faces of your franchise in town, sure. But if it compromises long-term success - and you know it - giving out these massive contracts makes no actual sense.

    Yeah, DC just wants to sell jerseys and merchandise. They think if they keep Gilbert and Jamison, then they will make the money back in sales.

    He was asking for around 130 Mil. It will probably do though, since they got Jamison back too.

    But I agree, I don't think he'll get back to the level he was after two knee surgeries. It really was more of a PR move on their part. Everywhere you go in DC, everything is Agent Zero.

    If it weren't for his hefty price tag, I wouldn't have minded us snagging him. But oh well.

    I think thats a horrible move, those guys are way overpaid and aren't near as good as they think they are. In 2 years this is gonna look like the worst contracts in the league.

    It rivals the JO signing, except that JO was totally healthy then.

    Arenas has missed so many games and had major knee problems. crazy..

    That's true but everybody in DC is buying into Arenas saying next year he'll be an all-star again... lead the league in scoring..lead the team to the Eastern Finals..blah. blah. blah. I agree, it'll look terrible in a couple years.

    Arenas will still get the votes though. It always is like that. Year after year when Shaq's production slid and slid, he still made it.

    The All-Star game isn't all about skill. It's about popularity. Gilbert will make the team in one fashion or another, which will take away a spot more deserving to another player who worked hard.

    Yeah, Yao will probably make it till he retires.

    LOL remember last time Gil made it. I think he had 5 points. I'll try to find the box score.
