The season starts later tonight, so it's decision time
waive 3 players:
- Trey Thompkins ($0.5M => no penalty)
- Marcus Denmon ($0.5M => no penalty)
- Damion James ($1.5M, 2y => $1.5M total penalty, which we'll pay right away)
Thompkins still seems very raw, and Denmon is already injured, but Damion's situation is particularly frustrating. He's just been released by real-life
, although his perimeter defence and rebounding skills are exactly what they need from that bench unit. Pretty inconceivable.
That brings us to 73.2 - 0.5 - 0.5 - 1.5 + 1.5 = $72.2M total needed this season, thus allowing to roll over $2.8M.
As a result, our final yearly caps are 72.2, 75, 68.8, 65.
(Colby, I think I triple-checked everything, but let me know in case you arrive at different numbers. Cheers!)
