    Caron's not a bad deal since its only for 5 years and he's All-Star caliber.

    Williams is worth 11-12 million per season. I would have given him the max.

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

With RFA, it'll be very hard to acquire those guys on the market.
    I agree with Balls. Better to stay patient than to overpay.

    I'm switching McKie to SG to backup Manu. Also wanna switch Posey to backup Melo whenever he resigns.

    He only made 3.2 million last season. Pissed at Melo. He's not a max level player. He's only an elite scorer but doesn't defend create, or rebound. 5 years 64 million is fair. I'll let his *** test the market.

    Wow, amazing. got Battier at 6 per year flat for 4 years and Garcia at the LLE. VERY happy about that.

    "I don't know if people know I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"

    That's an outstanding deal for Battier.

    Ridnour - 5 years - $8M - 10% if I remember correctly.

    It lets me play Childress off the bench as well which was a huge piece to the puzzle. I'll also be able to throw MLE's out to only people who will get a ton of PT. Starting off very well. Not expecting to make some big splash either lol.

    Good contract in my opinion, especially if he cuts down those turnovers.

    If it wasn't for RFA, I would offer him the 5 year max.

    Yeah, it's like you said at the end of last season; someone has to offer those guys maxes so the teams have to pay. If i had room i'd offer it to both.

    Index says 6 years but I think we agreed to us only being able to offer 5 right.

    Luke Ridnour PG 26 $8,000,000 $8,800,000 $9,680,000 $10,648,000 $11,712,800

    Meaning it's advantagous for him to match it verus offering a higher contract.

    Max at 4 years 10% versus max at 5 years 12.5 %.

    Also, this means that I can spend points on his handles. Ridnour is a 85 passer and 55 handles but still an A rating on HN.
