We cannot create cap space by trading 1 player - TigerinATL
I keep seeing people with the mistaken impression that we can trade Holiday or Evans or Ryno and then have their salary available in cap space. That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. To have cap space you have to be below the cap, not just with current contracts but also with ...

Tobias Harris - TigerinATL
I've seen a lot of wish list chatter on him lately and I do know it was questionable whether Orlando wanted to give him a big contract, so he would fit the mold of a Demps RFA target. Why do you Harris fans think he would work here? He did shoot a decent percentage from 3 this season, 36.4% after ...

Important Questions for the Post Monty Era - TigerinATL
1) Who is in charge? Obviously Loomis is, but does Demps have one foot in the grave as he continues build the roster and conduct the coaching search? I always thought Monty and Demps were a package deal for 1 reason, if you didn't fire them together you are either committing to Demps for another 3...

Asik's cost vs. other starting centers - TigerinATL

Silver Lining/Moral Victory - TigerinATL
I'm still numb from last night, but that doesn't change the fact that we're a healthy Jrue Holiday away from being up 2-1 on the best team in the league. Also, if Monty isn't the guy long term, and most of us don't think he is, this is the kind of resume padding that moves you closer to the next co...

Do we want to win a series? - TigerinATL
Assuming that our cap is getting swept by the Spurs in the WCF, do we want to get there? It seems like a silly question at face value but if we can't win it all or even make the Finals, what is the optimal amount of winning? Is pushing the Warriors to 7 as good as losing in the 2nd round? Pros of...
