probably the 12th pick


It's almost certainly going to be 10th or 11th. We are currently one game better than Cleveland in record, 2.5 behind New York with only one game to go. If we happen to win and Cleveland beats Brooklyn, there would be a drawing for who gets the higher pick. If one of teams 11-14 (New York, Denver, Minnesota, and Phoenix) wins a lottery pick, we can get 10 or 11 based on the above scenario. If nobody leapfrogs, it would be 9 or 10. For 12 to happen, two of teams 11-14 would have to get top 3 picks, which is extremely unlikely.

re: Jimmy Smith (Times Pic) bringing the heat on Demps


It was a bad move, and I am not as big a fan of Demps as most, but using this as a crutch to call for the guys firing is just plain stupid.

Fact is that Demps has far bigger mistakes that he should be criticized for right now. First and foremost was not signing and trading Gordon to Phoenix before that huge mess. Given his inconsistent health.

In the end, he's definitely had a ton of head scratchers and had he been allowed to go through with the supposed Lakers/Houston trade for CP3, then he'd have been gone after that season. He got desperate with CP3 and got desperate with Gordon.

I'd rather they just not have resigned Gordon in the end at this rate and accepted that AD was our prize for that trade. In the end, he's not as bad as some make him out to be, nor is he anywhere close to as good as others do. He's mediocre at best, but he and Monty aren't going anywhere so people need to just hope he has some tricks up his sleeves.

apparently it was the opposite

quote:

The minimum salary contract for a 10-plus-year veteran next season is $1,448,490. Cleveland could have signed a nine-plus-year veteran to a minimum salary contract for the final few days of the season, just as the Knicks did with Gadzuric, and had that same $1.45 million unguaranteed next summer. Had they signed that someone yesterday instead of Hopson, they would have had to pay them only the prorated minimum salary for the remainder of the season instead of the $1.3 million they gave to Hopson.

With 17 days left to go in the 170 regular season, this meant they needed spend only one tenth of the minimum. They have spent $1.3 million in order to have a $1.45 million unguaranteed contract, whereas they could have spent $131,681 to do the same. Or, if they had just waited until the final day of the season, that amount could have been even smaller, a paltry $7,746.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



So Demps gave himself a 1.4M trade chip this summer, but will pay about $40k for it.

Anyone want to email Jimmy Smith?

I think Demps has done a better job as GM than Smith did with that piece.

Pining over Vasquez and Lopez? Come on. Stiesma? Yikes!

I think Demps has made a lot of mistakes, but most of his stuff in this article is silly.

It looks like Jimmy Smith lost the coin toss for who gets to write the reactionary click bait article.
