    Len signed for the rest of the MLE for one year. Definitely points towards Harris signing a two way, because we are full up in terms of roster spots, and you can get to the ideal full Bird RFA scenario by doing one year of two way and then a two year minimum exception deal. Even if we waive or trade TD, you'd think that would be to add Brissett somehow. Maybe if TD is gone AND they waive Johnson, they could add another guy like Batum or some other vet.
    Why waive Johnson tho?? Don't we wanna see what he's got this coming year? Maybe he finally figures it out

    Also do u think they'll waive TD??? I rly hope so not down 4 abusers on my team man.

    Let's not Mavericks it up here. Already questionable Adrian Griffin is still here imo.

    Great stuff, Dan. Read the FVV one when it dropped and good to see this one today. Also the conversation in the comments is additionally super valuable.

    How does the Len signing impact all of that? Are we totally done for roster spots now? Does that make Harris a presumptive two way?

    Wrote two pieces on the cap situation this summer (and planning for next). Really was one piece but editors be editors.

    Posting the links in here for easy reference. Will put links and excerpts in the offseason thread.

    If anyone wants a current cap update after Kawhi and Danny left and Thomas and Johnson were signed.
    pascal/giannis/beal in 2021. I don't even like Beal but lets do it Masai.

    Are empty roster slots considered for tax purposes too? I figured that would be an exception, and thus not considered.
    It's two different things. Empty roster slots are considered for cap room purposes in the off-season because you are allowed to be under 14 players in the off-season. But in-season, you have to have 14 players signed. Meaning if they magically make CJ disappear, they have to sign someone. Meaning adding at least the 1.5M minimum salary (for tax purposes). So they can't save all of CJ's money, not because of roster slot holds but because of the real salary of whatever 14th man they are mandated to sign.

    Yeah, that's about right. Except they need 14 players so you have to add 1.5M back in, making the salary savings 6.8M and the tax savings lower as well. Still a lot, of course. Will be even more significant next season where they could be even deeper in the tax.

    How they gonna keep Kawhi AND sign Durant, it's going to be tight.

    If Kawhi bolts we sign Durant
    Neither of these things will happen. Both take significant effort (like, dramatic) to make them even possible next summer.

    Dan,

    If the Raps could dump CJ with nothing coming back how much does it save the team in tax?

    Let’s say to a team with room for a protected 2nd round pick. (Sacramento?)
    Anyway, beyond the 8.3mill in salary if we can dump him for nothing what’s the net savings in tax?

    Edit—I messed around with it a bit. Is it about 22 mill in taxes meaning dumping CJ for nothing would save $30 mill in total? If I did that correctly...that’s a lot of money.
