Necessity of cap space in the summer of 2015

Fans have been looking forward to 2016 for the pursuit of Kevin Durant. To me, having cap space in 2015 is just as important important in order to even be in the conversation for Durant in 2016. I...

Thabo Sefalosha

I've resigned myself to the reality that it's highly unlikely for the Nets to blow up the roster. If we're going to try to contend for a championship with this roster, I think what we're really...

Best destination for Deron Williams: Charlotte Bobcats

It seems like rebuilding the team is inevitable and the first domino to fall should be Deron Williams. Looking around the league, the destination options are limited. This is how I see the state of...

Long term answer at Power Forward: Darrell Arthur

Looking at our current roster, Blatche and Garnett are both playing power forward but they are both better suited to play center. While Blatche is talented enough to make up for it playing against...

Rebuilding using Cavaliers model

At first, we tried the Heat model of building a superteam, using our superstar to lure other superstars. That faded once Dwight waived his ETO. We can't use the OKC model since we traded away our...

Redraft: MarShon would be selected 8th

3

Thorpe revisits the 2011 draft and has MarShon Brooks selected at 8th to the Pistons.

MarShon Brooks signed for only 115% of his rookie contract

2

Only on a scant few occasions has a rookie been given less than the maximum 120% of the rookie salary scale. Indeed, as best as can be ascertained, it has happened five times prior to this season: Donte Greene, Sergio Rodriguez, James Anderson, George Hill and Ian Mahinmi. Add two more to that list. Predictably, one of them is a Spur. While Kawhi Leonard got his full 120%, Cory Joseph didn't. He can earn it by meeting his incentives - and, as best as can be ascertained, there are no on-court performance bonuses included in his deal - yet as of right now, he's at only 100%. Considering that the Spurs are responsible for three of the five previous non-120%ers, and that there was absolutely no chance that Joseph was going in the first round were it not for San Antonio, this is not surprising. They had all the leverage. The other non-120%er, though, is from a more surprising source. Despite his blistering start to the season, with averages of 15.1 points and 4.4 rebounds at the time of writing, MarShon Brooks is doing so for only 115% of his possible rookie scale amount. He stands to gain 120% in all future years - however, this season, he is earning only $1,063,865 of the $1,110,120 that he could be. The reason why is not apparent, but also perhaps not important. Of course, saving $46,255 on MarShon Brooks's contract is less impressive when you then re-invest it all on three weeks of Dennis Horner. Or when you decided that, despite being a mere shell of his former self, Mehmet Okur was totally worth $10,890,000 for one season of backup-calibre play.

NBA player movement flow charts

The title pretty much describes what it is. Broken down by team, it shows player movement flow chart and how each player arrived on the team. It's very interesting to see how we are still seeing the rewards from the Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin trades. Check it out.

The pecking order next season

Coach Lionel Hollins talks about the difficulty he had with Grizzlies this season. If our Nets don't land a top tier free agent, I'm worried we could face similar challenges next season.
