    Letting Holmes walk.

    In order to sign any player you have to either have salary cap room, or you need to use an exception. The exception that we could use to sign Holmes that would provide salary that we expect is at least close to the salary Holmes will command is the Early Bird exception, which applies to only...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    That is already assuming you cut CoJo and had to pay the guaranteed portion of his money next season. You have to cut the others to get to $15M under the cap to spend the money on Holmes. You have to renounce the cap holds of your own free agents because that goes against the salary cap. Of...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Basically, if you cut everybody and relinquish rights on everybody, then yes. Otherwise, no. So the question is this: You can have one of two things, which do you prefer? A) Richaun Holmes at $15M per year B) Delon Wright + opportunity to sign Holmes at about 4y/$47M (if he takes it) + your...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    That's true. But I really don't have a lot to go on, and the stats and the measurables and the overall game seem very similar. Nobody knows how Garuba will turn out, but the most recent and apt comparison seemed to me to be Biyombo, and when I was looking up Euro stats to compare them I found...

    Players that I would target with the 9th pick:

    I haven't had a chance (and probably won't) to see actual game film of Garuba, but his profile looks a lot like Biyombo as an undersized athletic big man. Both played in the Liga ACB, and their numbers are pretty similar. Garuba seems to be a somewhat better passer and will shoot threes (but...

    2021 Workouts

    Figured it would be interesting to have a thread putting together the players the Kings are working out. Looks like we'll be taking a look at Jericho Sims, a senior C from Texas. Sims is listed at 6'10" 245, and doesn't have a jumper. Maybe looking at him in the second round, maybe as a...

    Letting Holmes walk.

    Yeah, given all the players we have right now, and our pick (at #9), and mandatory roster charges for empty roster spots...if we clear out every penny of unguaranteed money and free agent cap holds we'll be at $107M on a cap of $112.4M. Basically there's no way for us to use cap room to sign...

    NBA Playoffs, Round Two

    There was definitely some good D, but I'll be damned if either of the Clippers' stars wanted to take the last shot. "You take it!" "No, you take it!" "No, YOU take it!" "Nah, we'll let Morris take it!"

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (JUN)

    Yes, they should have given each team in the league four picks in the first round so that draft rounds would be more easily comparable when the league expanded to 30 teams.

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (JUN)

    Well, Willis Reed was the first second-round MVP, there were just fewer teams then. It's definitely fair to say Jokic is the lowest-picked MVP.

    Letting Holmes walk.

    I don't think there's any reason to account for inflation. Inflation is covered by the change in the salary cap. Of course, the cap has grown even more than the dollar, but the rise in the cap is basically due to two factors: 1) Increases in revenue due to inflation, and 2) increases in revenue...

    [NBA] Comments that don't warrant a thread (JUN)

    Willis Reed was the first pick of the second round in 1964, but he was the 8th overall pick. Moses Malone was drafted into the ABA and not the NBA, and he was taken in the third round, but there were only 10 teams at the time, so he was picked earlier than Jokic, even if it was a later round...

    First timeout was because of the trap. Second timeout was to advance the ball to half court.
