Just wanted to point out that the Bobcats don't have any sizable cap space just yet. They're currently under the cap by less than $1M. Not enough to facilitate any significant draft-day trades without including Haywood, Sessions, or Gordon.
If I'm reading the CBA FAQ correctly, beginning July 1st the #4 pick ($3.2M), McRoberts ($4.1M), Mullens ($5.2M), and Henderson ($6.2M) will have a combined cap hold of nearly $19M. The other eight guys already under contract (including Adrien) add up to ~$41M.
Amnestying Tyrus would help, as would renouncing Mullens.
how am i supposed to make any ridiculous draft day trades if i have to follow the rules?
sign and trade hendo to the lakers for kobe and 2 first rounders, immediately amnesty kobe while still selling kobe hornets jerseys basically solving all the team problems.
