Or, is that Amir?

Very happy he's coming back. He played well last year and knew his role on the team. Solid player.

No real surprise but I guess it's ok...I'm sure it was what little was left of our cap.


So depressing that we're at the cap.

This is about as good a call as we can expect for C.

many posters do not want to give any credit to the impact of having legit Cs in the lineup but I definitely saw many possessions where it made the difference. Just another advantage Casey had over JT.

Hope it's 3mil or less /yr... i love his game, but i dont like how our entire cap has been spent on role players...

+ amnesty. Our cap situation is actually pretty great until we start extending people at the end of next off season.

I think this team should wait until next summer/deadline before chasing after a 3, at least until we can establish what we have as far as a team goes. There are too many rookie unknowns and new players arriving to this team.

Cap space can easily be cleared. All it takes is Calderon expiring/trading one of Johnson or even Bargnani (if it comes to it)
