Haven’t a clue myself  :lol:

Basically you need the salary going out in the trade to match the salary coming in. The cap stops you signing free agents that would push your salary above it but doesn’t really affect your trades. Loads of teams are over the salary cap and they just pay a luxury tax as a consequence.

It seems like its the NFL that only actually has a hard salary cap, all the others seem to be able to just pay what the want really.

Aye there’s plenty of ways to get around it. Like you can go over the cap if you’re resigning your own player so you’ll see teams waiting to officially sign players after they’ve agreed terms on the contracts.

After what we got for Jrue i don't see why Houston would accept Brooklyn's scraps for Harden.

Which puts Philly in a strong position if they really want to.

Pistons making moves for future is such a good sight. Took way too long but at least we're doing it.

Probably the suckiest draft since 2013... so better trade up the board fam.

So many Nigerians in this draft. :lol: I am taking my boy to the court tomorrow.

Everyone says the Toppin boy reminds them of Amare, hopefully with knees. Seems a good pick for New York.

:( Literally the last guy you want to see get injured. Such a nice guy. Love that interview he did where he was stopped on the street in New York to talk about the scaffolding everywhere. He gave his opinions on the structural integrity of the scaffolding. The reporter had no idea who he was.

We had a brilliant run.

Pelicans got Steven Adams man. Very nice upgrade from Derrick Favours.

Lakers getting Harrell was very nice too. Having a really good off season themselves.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Clippers resigning the bad Morris twin for 4 years :lol:

Knicks yet to make a stupid deal, could this be the dawn of a new era?

Think Clippers panicked after Harrell switched to the Lakers. Terrible deal to give Morris that.

John Wall has asked out of Washington. He's looked good and healthy in workouts coming off the injury, and seems to have re-worked his jumper.

Would you take him at the Knicks? Or Westbrook?

Wall absolutely no way. Maybe Russ, although if RJ is who we think he can be then Russ may hamper that progress but I’d enjoy watching him for at least half a season before I went crazy. Think we should keep our cap free and try do what OKC are doing and take on some bad contracts in exchange for picks.

Gonna say it, there's way worse fits for Russ than the Wizards.

Not saying it should happen but it isn't an awful on court fit.

Have no idea as i don't really watch OKC but I'm gonna assume he will be better than Favors was for us.

Also he's a Expiring, so if he sucks it's not a major problem.
