I'm good with the $12 mil/yr. At least we did not cave and go for $13+. But given that some lesser big men are signing for $10+, I cant argue with $12 mil. Now, if he can just stay motivated and play like we know he can play, all will be fine.
Dont think we get Josh Smith now. Wont have the $ without trading someone. Oh well, LB will have to work some magic.
I'm stoked the big guy will be around long term.
I just hope he takes some of that $72 mill and invests in some angry pills and a FT coach.

Does anyone with knowledge of our payroll know what this does with our ability to grap a PF now? What room, if any, do we have? Is there any way we can get Josh Smith? I know Atlanta would have to do a S&T and we'd have to send players, but I'd send May,Morrison and Hollins packing if I could get Smith in a Bobcat's uniform.
What position Josh Smith plays anyway??
normally i dont like to overpay for players but with a center like meka...i think its a good thing....its at least 20 teams willing to play 72 mil and or more for meka services...not that they have the money....guys like him are hard to find and you have to keep them around....remember zo?
i never forgave the hornets for that shit
Smith plays PF and he'd be absolutely great with us if we didn't have to give up a starter...but we would.
From Tamb's great thread. If Mek's rate is flat then we're at 62,182,262 with 1 roster spot left...well above the cap and 8,967,738 from the luxury limit.
Barring a trade I see us maybe throwing a mid MLE deal to a big.
