The first thing is you all are putting WAY too much stock into what Hoopshype states. Hoopshype does not and I repeat does NOT know the exact numbers from the contracts that we have signed. They take guesses based on how much the reported amount is. A great example was Austin's contract a few years back. He actually made I believe it was a million or more less that what everyone was thinking because of the way his contract was. The Pacers DO NOT tell ANYONE how the contract is written up they just say it was for x amount of dollars and for x amount of years. So People need to take a step back and not take Hoopshype as the end all be all. If Bird says we have about 8 million to spend without going into the LT then that is how much we have. I love how so many people try to play the numbers game instead of actually listening to someone that actually knows how much every player is making this year. I mean too many people are trying to act like they know the exact cap numbers but they don't. Please don't think I am calling anyone out I just am tired of people trying to act like they know more than our GM.
