    The thing is, right now, the Pacers have less than $7 million to spend on Stephenson without waiving anyone since they're hard capped. If they waive Sloan (which I think they will), they will have about $7.9 million to spend.

    Remember, when a team is hard-capped, they can't go over it and then go back under it. They can't go over it for any reason.

    now is the time we should put a deadline on Stephensons offer... no one is holding him back now... we can't wait forever to find a replacement if he eventually decides to sign somewhere else

    Herb Simon has said in the last few months that he is not 100% opposed to going into the luxury tax for a year or two (I think it was in the IBJ interview after the deal with the CIB went through).....

    Reel him in Larry!
    I think the quote was something like "never say never". Must be a Bond fan.

    I'll believe it when I see the Pacers go into LT AND lose out on the LT sharing for non-paying LT teams. Herb Simon didn't make it to where he is by making poor business decisions losing millions and millions of $$.

    They've gone into the luxury tax before.

    The payment to non-taxpaying teams this year was only $3 million. That's better than nothing, but not much.

    Yes, and how did that work out? I don't see a CH banner hoisted in BLF. That was a lot of money wasted on "1" ECF CH. The Pacers have made it to 2 EFC finals w/o going over the LT. Don't see it happening.

    The Hornets still have about $10.5m in cap space so Lance could still get an offer that's better than ours.

    We have five power forwards. Safe to say someone is leaving. We will get under the luxury tax even with Lance's contract.

    I agree. Somehow the frontcourt (c, pf, sf) will get thinned out.

    I don't think they're going to end up over the luxury tax this year either.

    But let me just point out that you said:

    So you're saying he would never waste money going into the LT except when he did?

    I think we should just let the future play out and not be so certain that we know how it's going to go.

    Their home beat reporter has confirmed that they do not have interest in Lance.

    And now the Hornets have moved Scotty Hopson to NO. I wonder if NO wants him as a player or needs the unguaranteed contract to move in a deal.

    Yes we do, so if we do lose Lance, we can still sign Turner. That should be Plan Z though, haha.

    Anyway it's good news for us that Dallas is out of the running, but it ain't over until Lance signs on the dotted line. Atlanta is still sitting on a ton of cap space for example and could well try to sign Lance as a trade asset even if they don't intend to keep him.
    Just watch......the Spurs are going to sign ET for very cheap on a 1 or 2 year deal when he's been on the market for another couple of weeks. The 3rd Tier FA that are going to get much of the left over Free Agent money.....some rather solid Bench Players are going to be had for cheap.

    ET could very well outplay the contract that he will eventually be paid. I'm not saying that he will be Starter material.....but the value that he provides will overshadow the contract that he will be given.

    Just thought this was interesting, this is Damjan Rudez vs Real Madrid, which is who Nikola Mirotic played for (they were matched up against one another), who just received a 3 year 17 million dollar deal with the Bulls, Rudez put up 20 in that game.



    My hope is that Rudez is just a deadly shooter this year, gets bigger and stronger, and then can take over the back-up PF spot from Scola/Copeland the next year.

    Miami's not going to me as mediocre as some people think. They already have a chemistry even without Lebron.

    I don't see why not. I look at it 2 ways......as a show of good faith to Lance.....and cuz....we have little reason to put one. We're not making any additional moves....we're close to the LT....so our options to make any type of additional moves are limited anyway.
