    HoopsHype FINALLY updated our salaries (Lopez deal does have 2nd year option)



    I have been checking HoopsHype every day now in anticipation for the Lopez contract update, and according to them he has a team option for the 2nd year and a qualifying offer for the 3rd. Without Robert's deal, which shouldn't be much, our total team salary is at 63.1 million. Including the Roberts deal it will probably be closer to 64. Do some of you guys feel better now about the Lopez deal since we do have that out in the second year if things don't work out?

    I do. I didn't like signing him for 3 guaranteed years. I like him as an option for this season since he fills a need.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Whats a qualifying offer? Eric Gordon's contract has a freaking player option! hopefully we can get him to stay!

    Also its good that when our rookies become restricted agents we wont have anyone else signed.

    I thought Warrick had a team option for next season. If not, that sucks.

    That would be the weirdest thing if we didn't pick up Robin Lopez's TO and Warrick has a two year deal, so Warrick was on the team but RoLo wasn't.

    I asked Suns people. They said it's $4m each year, team option on the last.
    HoopsHype has been wrong about Warrick's contract from the start. He has a team option for next year, confirmed after the trade by other sites and whomever 42 knows with the Suns.

    The 37.7m figure doesn't include all of the team options. If you include everyone on that list, including Warrick, it's actually just under 52 million.

    Looking at about 39 mil with:

    Vasquez/Rivers
    Gordon
    Aminu/Miller
    Anderson
    Davis/Smith

    Factor in cap holds, and you are looking at about 17 million in cap room. If we pick up the option on Lopez, it will be about 12.5

    I just can't see any scenario in which Warrick or Henry are back- at least not at those prices

    The empty roster spots up to 12 and also the cap hold for a qualifying offer (if we are able to give it to a player). We can renounce the QO, but then we also lose any RFA rights to that player.

    So those are just minimum cap holds? cause it seemed like he was referring to QO cap holds and such :P

    Henry earning more than J Smitty is criminal.

    JS is the best value contract on the roster.

    Well that's next season. This season JS is making a tad bit more. And I don't know about you folks, but I'm thinking X won't be on our roster in 2013-14.

    JS is definitely a great value for us, but I think Gravy is our best deal on there.

    I say that when we look back on the season, production relative to salary (Wins created vs. $ earned, etc.)- the order will go:

    1. Ryan Anderson
    2. Anthony Davis
    3. Vasquez
    4. Smith

    I still can't believe how little people talk about Ryan ANderson. We just had one of the Basketball Prospectus guys on the podcast and their performance predictor compares a player to a past or current player based on dozens of factors. The player he says Anderson's game most resembles advanced stat wise? Dirk Nowitzki

    Anderson and Davis will both post PER's between 19 and 22, while earning less than 14 million combined.

    THAT is value

    Anderson was great when he had Dwight getting doubled in the middle and was left open.

    When Dwight was out and in the playoffs he wasn't all that productive.

    I'm still not convinced he'll be awesome without a top centre but time will tell.

    Myth.

    Anderson did well in the regular season without Dwight who missed a lot of games.

    Also, a healthy Gordon will create open shots for Anderson and vice versa.

    True, but he also was being asked to be a number one scoring option and play a good bit of 5 on a roster with no real backup center. After Howard went down that whole Magic squad was just a mess, so I wont hold that against him.

    Anderson is a 2/3 option. Let's treat him as such. Anderson's game revolves around space. Whether it's Dwight or Gordon, Anderson will have the space he needs to work with here.

    HoopsHype updated our salaries once more, they changed the 3rd year of Lopez's deal from a qualifying offer to a team option. Once again, GREAT DEAL Demps.

    Anthony Davis cutting to the basket will scramble defenses, which will help Anderson.
