    By the way I remember the Gilbert Arenas story were he was nervous and couldn't wait to sign his multi years contract, he was afraid of getting hurt or having some kind of accident, I expect Hill/Roy to be as nervous especially with this been their first big contract.

    Given what we know about Gilbert Arenas, I think that he had more cause to worry about having "some kind of accident" than Roy or George.

    Pablo Prigioni is signing with Knicks to be their third point guard. He'll play for Argentina in the Olympics.
    No clue who this guys is, but I do have this great quote from his agent (translated):

    "If Pablo plays 20 minutes a game, he will get 12 assists a game with his eyes closed and walking backwards."

    Someone will have to confirm how the amnesty contract gets added to the SalaryCap....but Haywood has a 3 year contract that pays him $8 to 10 mil per year. My guess is that the contract will somehow impact the Capspace for the next 3 years. Either way, he's not going to come cheap and I want to make sure that Miles has enough minutes to properly develop.
    Haywood has 3 years left (4th is a team option). We would only be on the hook for the amount of the winning bid. Same with Brand, who has 1 year.

    Mavs are likely to bid high on Brand because of 1 year-- they are already thinking of next summer's free agents.

    If we bid, say 1.5 M, we'd have that on the cap each of the next 3 years. I'd bid the minimum

    Holy crap, the Knicks have found a way to supplant Jeremy Lin; a guy that can pass with his eyes closed and walking backwards. Just imagine what he could do in 40 minutes.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    He would only cost us whatever we bid each year. So if we bid $2 million, then he would cost us $2 million each of the next three years. That's pretty reasonable. Plus if he has anything left then he's tradeable after the first year. And his salary to the acquiring team would still only be $2 million per year if he was traded. Dallas is on the hook for all the rest.

    Not saying I want him, just saying that he's not an overly expensive option. Unless teams bid high salaries. Or unless he's on his last legs.

    I'm unsure. It's either 48 hours (same as this past offseason), or seven days (the number of days a player stays on the waiver wire at this time of the offseason).

    I asked David Aldridge about it on Twitter, but he hasn't responded yet.

    From what I read...yes, Teams have 48 hours to bid from 5pm ( I assume PDT ).

    What Teams are under the Cap?
    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.

    My question is how much cap space do we actually have? Did we renounce Lou or Leandro yet? I thought that ate up all of our cap...

    Mavs amnesty of Haywood a likely prelude to auction bid on Elton Brand. Can do $9.2M now by my count.

    That's amazing that he got paid MORE than Roy. Wow.
    How can he do that? They were in the same draft class, hence they've been in the NBA the same amount of years. Roy get's the $58m max, Eric Gordon, in the same draft class gets the $58m max, so how can Brook get $61m for the same 4 years? Something isn't being reported right, or someone make a mistake.

    EDIT; Never mind, already answered. Thank you for your consideration though, it was greatly appreciated!

    I am a Mahinmi supporter, but that seems like an overpayment unless something else is involved.

    they just gave him 'hometown' annual increase (7.5%). we'll give him 4.5%, the most Portland could offer.

    An opposing team can only offer 4.5% yearly raises, which is how Roy got 4/58. The drafting team can give 7.5% raises, this the higher total.

    We got lucky with Roy cutting us a tiny break.
