    The one intriguing part about the cap going up so much, is wondering if DeRozan (and others) would be open to taking less % (since it would still represent huge $), to both get paid and leave room for MU to further improve the roster.

    In general, the bigger the cap is, the more opportunity there is for any top-tier player to make significant money while tying up a relatively smaller % of the total cap. It could be an interesting trend to watch, league-wide, over the next couple offseasons.
    DeRozan can't "leave room" for MU to further improve the roster. I think with the new projections we have ~$18M cap space if we renounce all our guys including DeMar. He's not going to take an $8M cut to his first year salary and what would probably be like a $50M cut to his overall contract. And even if he did we still would have no cap space.

    Unless you're just talking about wiggle room under the tax but good luck selling that to a player. "Can you take less money so we don't have to pay as much for the team?".

    Information about actual revenue thus far in the year tends to trickle in and if it surpasses projections from the summer the projection tends to slide up (and the same for revenues that come in low - we've seen that happen as well, fairly often).

    That DeRozan max deal keeps going up and up in salary. Now projects to 26M starting salary, almost 150M over 5 years.

    92M, interesting. Any idea what "raised" the projections?

    Doesn't change a whole lot for us though. Just slightly increases how much DeMar can make.

    In Lowe's most recent post about the deadline, we get the first solid update to the projected 89M cap level this summer. Seems most teams are using 92M as an expected level now. Whether that comes from the league, not sure, but 92M it is.

    Largely depends on if the Raps figure out how to use him properly or not.
    Let's be real lol we're almost halfway into the season and are still throwing him out there without the two guys he plays best with... I don't see that changing unless Scola starts playing like shit.

    I'm expecting 2pat to get Vasquez'd if the plan isn't to use him in a S&T.

    Barring of course whatever happens before the deadline and at the draft. This last season we entered the draft with an interesting amount of cap room but no chance of chasing a big name. Ended up with max cap room and a sit down with LMA.

    JV/Ross

    DD alone
    Not sure about DD cause he'd have to want to go to the team we're S&Ting with which makes it tricky.

    Not to mention any number of smaller combinations added to guys on rookie scale deals. The possible combinations are endless. The only thing to take out of this is that Masai has loads of trade flexibility.

    JV/2Pat
    Carroll/Ross
    Lowry/Ross

    ... could also be traded for a max player.

    Probably not a huge deal but I just realized that Carroll+2Pat in a sign and trade could bring a max player back the other way. FWIW
