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.

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)
