My understanding is that Jrue only hits enough big incentives if the Bucks win the championship... which, isn't that the goal?
John Hollinger disclosed yesterday that Jrue has a bunch of incentives tied to games played, etc. It isn’t just a title.
I think Hollinger is off on this. The games played incentive was likely to be earned and already figured in. Bobby Marks and Hollinger aren't on the same page with Jrue's incentives, and I trust Marks.
Agreed. He's due for $765k in incentives if I'm not mistaken, and everyone is including that in Jrue's cap figure, including spotrac. I think it's $255k for games played, another $255k for 3.15 rpg, and yet another $255k for minutes played. He won't make the apg threshold. The rest of the incentives are hard to find but there must be a reason no cap gurus are including them in the Bucks' tax figure. ETA: I researched this before submitting this post and it appears that incentives are considered likely and count against this year's cap ONLY if they were achieved last year. That's why Jrue's cap figure is treated as being set in stone by sources like spotrac.
The "win a title" incentive is interesting, but I'm not even 100% convinced that would count on this year's tax number since it will be determined and paid so late, if at all. From what I've read, it sounds like the "likely vs. unlikely" classification is based on previous seasons, and only the "likely" bonuses count against the current year's cap. In other words, if they win the title, then that incentive becomes a "likely" incentive next year and will count against next year's cap, but not against this year's cap.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but this simple fact would clarify all the confusion I've had about Jrue's incentives and the way cap gurus like Marks are figuring them.https://cbabreakdown.com/compensation
