re: Asik signs 5 year deal for $60 million, 5 year not guaranteed - TigerinATL
This pic from Mason sums it up pretty well. A little over $73 million for 9 guys and needing to add at least 3 players to the roster. [img]https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CI4hkv4WUAAnZKT.png:large[/img] ...

[quote]no one has anything to say about the fact that Asik shot 51% from the field from less than 3' feet. [/quote] I have something to say. It's not true. [img]http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p637/tigerinatl1/asikshotchart_zpsujndbjoy.gif[/img] [link=(http://www.basketball-reference.co...

[quote]$100 says we'll get right up to the tax. we ain't going into tax land for end of the roster guys[/quote] Also, taxes aren't calculated until the end of the year, so if there's anyone expendable on your roster heading towards the trade deadline, you could always pay a fake 2nd rounder and c...

[quote]Can one of our cap guys explain how the bird rights work with Asik's contract please. [/quote] Even if Asik wasn't on our roster we have no functional cap space, that means you need an exception to sign a FA. All we have is the $5.5 million MLE and $2.1 million BAE to sign outside free ag...

[quote]Do we still have caproom to sign a SF MLE??? [/quote] It depends on how much they want to avoid the tax. we are currently at about $75 million with a 9 man roster. Add a $5.5 million SF via the MLE and 3 $1ish million minimum guys to get you up to about $83 million for 13 players and you...

Have you considered making a shelf/stand to put the TV? I don't know if you have any wood or matching stain left over, but all you'd really need is a platform with legs/skids. The staining would probably be the hardest part....
