    What a sham we should of scheduled to sign Roy and Hill on the 19th the last day the amnesty players can be claimed.


    Scola for 5m makes us at least a rd better in the playoff team IMO. What a fail IMO

    we had the money and dont use it(unless Simon didn't let them).

    Again,

    How the do you know that? They don't release year by year details of the contracts. What if we front loaded Roy (or any of our other signings) to give ourselves more breathing room from the lux tax down the road (do have West to re-sign, and eventually PG)... if that was the case in any way, timing didn't matter.

    No one completely knows if we had the space unless you have the official Pacers contract ledger in front of you. Our FO knows what we could have or not have done better than any fan.

    because it isn't possible to front load Roy's offer. Hills, sure.

    For all we know they did ask Roy and Hill to wait and they (their agents) said screw that, we've waited long enough.

    Thanks. That was helpful.

    One thing I don't understand. He admits that we couldn't bid on Scola and Brand because we were signing Hill and Hibbert already. Is this just a matter of them stupidly scheduling the signing a couple days too early, or is there a reason they made the signing/announcement this afternoon?

    Yea, that is pretty weak excuse, but if I was Hibbert or Hill I'd want to sign asap cause freak accidents happen and I wouldn't want to lose out on tens of millions to wait on a long shot / roll of the dice.

    Also, maybe the FO wouldn't want a disgruntled player being force to be somewhere under the amnesty provision...ahh, that's even a weaker excuse!

    I thought somewhere it was said it could with a signing bonus, or flip the years around and go highest to lowest (pay decreases 4.5% rather than increase).

    Anyway, point is they could have done it to Hill, Mahinmi, or Green...

    Pritch also said we had to do the S&T deal do to cap restrictions as well... so I still think there is something # wise we don't know about.
