DeMarre Carroll & Paul Millsap MEGA thread


Recommended Posts

In the context of a guy who was underpaid and gave the Hawks consecutive All-Star seasons and led the team during it's most successful season ever, the overpaying isn't so bad. The mystery would then become what does Al Horford get offered in an even zanier 2016 free agency?

 

Looks like it comes down to Stability versus Extra Take Home Pay in Sap's lap. Are a few extra bucks going to be worth starting fresh with a young roster and a new coach at age 30? We're going to find out soon.

You people are hilarious . You literally will never be happy. If he walked then what? We have assets people. If we don't want sap in a year or two we can trade him...if he walked what do we have? Unus

Jesus Christ for a team that won 60 games last year, our fans cry about everything. DMC got 15 years so giving sap 20 on a short term deal is awful?! I don't get you guys. You must rather would have a

I'd honestly let Millsap walk for that much. Try to go after LMA and if that doesn't work get a rent a center, move Horf to PF full time and try not to WASTE our first round pick in next year's draft.

how is that wrong?  There was nothing stopping the ASG from spending after Joe signed his contract.  Most good teams have multiple max guys.  We had one.  

We have been over the cap while being owned by the ASG.  Ressler spoke of his willingness to go over the cap while staying under the luxury tax which is the same situation. 

 

There is also a little thing called the salary cap.  Joe's contract was bad because it limited our ability to bring in other star players because he was taking up a majority of the cap space.  This isn't baseball where teams can spend any amount they want.

The ASG was never interested in exceeding the cap at all. They wanted to be one of the owners that got some of the luxury tax penalty money that went to team under the cap.

I don't remember being over the cap.

It doesn't matter in this case. If Sap signs this deal, We only have like 7 mil in cap space. We can't sign DMC regardless.

I know that, but when Joe signed his contract we could still have made moves.  You can make trades and get players.
