Yeah, I can see a number around there.
18% of this year's cap is $19.6mil. With annual 8% raises, the sums in subsequent years would be 21.1, 22.9, 24.7 and 26.7. That's 4 years, $88.3mil or 5 years, $115mil.
I'll be interested to see how Boston handles this situation with Jaylen Brown. He's not quite the defender and not nearly the playmaker that CLV is, but has proven scoring ability and elite athleticism. Like us, BOS will not have capspace next offseason, so they wouldn't be risking flexibility by signing him early. Anyway, Brown's RFA cap hold will be about $19.5mil, similar to his probable starting salary.
I think that their handling of him will inform us on where the market stands of Caris, and how we should proceed. Many times, the deal doesn't happen until the last few days in October before the deadline. I suppose we'll know more then.
