Yeah realized after I posted it I was looking in the 20-21 column for Frazier not the 19-20. Also feels like we stretched CJ Watson a decade ago. Why is Ross' cap hold 15.75? I thought it was 125% of their last season's salary but might've got that mixed up with rookie contract rules. Thanks for the breakdown either way, I appreciate the work. Looks like we'd probably have to do another big-ish move. Fournier or DJ for a non-gtd deal maybe.
I believe it has to do with Bird rights, so it's 150% of the previous salary. We could maybe convince him to sign for less than his cap hold though. We could technically clear space, but it just seems unlikely to work out as we'd have to get rid of a lot of contributing pieces and that's not going to go over well with a major free agent with plenty of options. Weltman is in a bit of a pickle... can't attract a big free agent unless you have money and a playoff team. We can realistically offer one, but not both imo.
I think we are going to have to push for consistency by bringing back Vuc and Ross. Then treat Bamba, Fultz and #16 as the new additions to the roster because they practically are.
We will need to prove to the league over the next 2-3 years that we are a well run organization capable of reaching the post season regularly.
Over the time we can learn what we truly have in Fultz, Isaac, Bamaba and somewhat in AG. Then the end of the new deal for Vuc is approach and we can decide on trades for BIG. That is when we make a move from a #5-8 seed to a conference contender. ... unless Fultz or Isaac break out.
