re: Pels interested Kendrick Perkins - TigerinATL
In hindsight I'd say both the RoLo and Perkins connections were part of the Asik negotiations. If Demps was ready to sign him to 4/$44 then I don't think he looked very hard elsewhere....

re: 2015 NBA Offseason Thread - FA/Trade News and Rumors Here - TigerinATL
Didn't he opt out of $7.5-$8.5? Then he turns around and signs essentially a 1 year deal for the same amount? I get that Portland looks like a sinking ship, but you're doing it wrong Aaron....

re: Asik signs 5 year deal for $60 million, 5 year not guaranteed - TigerinATL
[quote] Plain and simple, we overpaid in years and dollars.[/quote] Have we seen the structure yet? Someone said there were team options after year 3, although that's not what the reports in the OP say. 3/$36 with 2 team options is easier to swallow than 5/$60. ...

All we can do now is hope Gentry can bring out Houston Asik on offense and Erman brings out Chicago Asik on defense. ...

You can only have one 5 year designated deal, basically 1 5 year max. There is no limit on 5 year non maxes. ...

re: AD signed already: 5th year player option - TigerinATL
[quote]How does he fit this criteria? [/quote] He doesn't yet, but he got the 3rd most votes for the All Star game last year. History suggests that even if he's injured he'd probably start again because fans choose the starters and fans are stupid....

re: AD signed already: 5th year player option - TigerinATL
[quote]Wtf is the rose rule?[/quote] There are different levels of Max Contract based on how long you've been in the league, 25% of the cap, 30% and 35%. The Rose Rule allows players on a rookie deal that have either won an MVP (like Derrick Rose did), Started 2 All Star Games, or made 2 All NBA...

[quote]ETA: What could we offer KD next year? Just humor me...[/quote] That depends on what we do with the MLE. . Assuming 1 year deal on the MLE and we have Asik on the books next year for $10, we'd have $22-$23 million in cap space, enough to attract KD, but we wouldn't have Gordon, Anderson,...

re: Official 2015 Pelicans Talk Free Agency Thread - TigerinATL
That's a standard 150% cap hold that remains in place until you renounce your rights to him or give him a new deal. Asik's got about a $12.5 million cap hold on the books right now until we do something with him....

[quote]How are we going to fill our huge holes at SG and SF with $19 million? [/quote] I'm not so sure Gordon is gone long term, although seeing the contracts we're seeing make me shudder to think what his next deal could look like. I know you want a stud SF, but we may have to settle for a 2nd ...

[quote]Not enough to sign KD. [/quote] If KD says he's coming you can easily move salary just like the Spurs did with Splitter. Outside of Jrue with his injury and maybe Asik, I don't see a player on your list that some team wouldn't take for free, especially in a year where there is an injectio...
