Thread: Do we HAVE to add $12 million this offseason?

  1. #1

    Default Do we HAVE to add $12 million this offseason?

    Next year's cap is same as last year's cap, $58 mil. As it stands we're ~$21mm under that. Seems great and all, but per the new CBA we have a floor of 85% of that 58, about 49 mil. So unless I'm completely misunderstanding, we absolutely HAVE to add near $12 million to the current payroll.

    Sign Eddy Curry to a one year 12m dollar deal, with the catch being he needs to be under 300 lbs to get paid. I'm real good at saving moneys.

    This talk of the salary floor is overblown. There was a minimum team salary in the last CBA too, at 75% of cap. They've bumped it up to 85% of cap now, and it will be 90% in 2 years, but that's not really a huge change. Especially not for the Pacers, who have historically maintained a team salary above the cap.

    If it's similar to the old system (and there's no indication that it won't be), then any team not hitting the salary floor will distribute the difference to the current players on the roster. Which isn't a terrible penalty - much better to do this than foolishly spending on a multi-year contract just to hit the spending floor. Signing someone to a one year deal for huge money also works, but if it's Eddy Curry then I'd rather the money go to the rest of the roster

    Also, this doesn't get evaluated until the end of the season, so we don't have to meet the floor right away.

    So if we come in under the 85% whatever the difference is between the payroll and that 85% gets evenly distributed to players under contract this season? In other words, you don't have to add salary, just pay it? That seems fine to me.

    I'm guessing Lance is really hoping we don't sign anyone.
