    Yes, the Greivis trade generated a TPE. No, we don't have it anymore. You cannot have a TPE if you use cap space.

    Does Toronto have a TPE that it may use this year? I thought one was created by the Greivis trade to the bucks
    ! Believe there was a $6.3 Million created . Can someone confirm this .

    TPE cannot be combined with an active player on the roster. Does this have the same aspects in a trade
    The TPE x 150% + $100,000?

    Is this a good site?

    First time I've heard of it or seen it.


    And planetmars, the hookup on Bobby Marks twitter is much appreciated.
    Would love to take the credit for the hookup, but I believe it was thead or FoxMachine that introduced me to him in the free agency thread I believe.

    spotrac.com is showing that Carroll will be making $13.6M in his first year:

    What does that mean for the cap if De Colo's rights were waived?
    Spotrac just steals from Basketball insiders.

    With Biyombo signing (maybe?) already, it means very little. If he hasn't signed in spite of the rumours, then we have 500k more than before. So 3.1M or so.

    So Pincus now reporting that Carroll's deal is only for 58M and not 60M (this is why I miss Sham, BBall insiders eventually gets it right but almost never the first time through). Saves 500k. Makes no real difference if Biyombo is already signed.

    If he has signed for the BE 2.8 million than they cannot recant, why would they not wait since management knew what the salary was for Carroll. Has Scola deal been announced as of yet?

    Gotta remember that Powell is playing in SUMMER LEAGUE. The a lot of these teams are fielding several players that are not even NBA-level talents.

    Deandre Daniels is toast for the year, Powell looks like the scorer we want TRoss to be. So congrats to Powell who will push TRoss to be traded.
    Powell can't shoot. If anything there is someone in Mississauga who could replace DeMar if he learns to pass and fill in for Lowry

    I'm hearing that Biyombo has signed, which means Scola has as well. Also means they won't be using the rest of their cap room, so they are keeping de Colo's rights.

    Also means any second rounders signed will be with the minimum exception. I hope they do 1 year deals if that's the case, because there's a smaller chance they do anything in the first year to get an offer sheet, and then you can sign them to a 2 year deal at the minimum after that to get to the 3 year Bird RFA summer.

    No, they cannot do that. To sign and trade Amir, you either need cap space to sign him or his Bird Rights (Bird due to the amount for which he signed, Early Bird or just having his non-Bird Rights wouldn't cut it). First option, cap space: if they waive Amir's rights (and cap hold) they would need to execute the first two signings and still have 12M in cap room. They only have 4M or so. Not enough. Second option: to keep Amir's Bird Rights, they must keep his cap hold of about 10M on the cap. So they then start the offseason with only 12.5M in cap space, enough to sign Joseph but not Carroll.

    However, in the hypothetical where you had a player with a very low cap hold and could indeed fit transactions like that in that order, yes, you would generate a TPE.
    What am I missing from here then?

    A sign-and-trade deal can be made with a free agent who has been renounced, as long as all the above criteria are met. Sign-and-trade contracts must be for at least three seasons (not including any option year) and no longer than four seasons3. The first year of the contract must be fully guaranteed, but the remaining seasons can be non-guaranteed. The combination of a three-year minimum with a one-year guarantee ensures that the player's new team cannot acquire the player's Bird rights any sooner than if they had signed him directly (if they wanted to re-sign him in less than three years they would first have to waive him, and lose any Bird rights -- see question number 33).
    Ahhhhhh, never mind you can renounce but still need cap space. Dammit. So stupid and blinded by way of finding a advantage for raps.

    "The NBA salary cap was set Wednesday for next season at $70 million, a higher-than-expected number that paves the way for free agent contracts to be signed. The league said the cap increased by 11 percent from last season's $63.1 million and the 2015-16 cap will be the highest ever - though it will be shattered next summer. It had been projected to come in closer to $67 million until recently."

    This should help the front office breathe a tad easier.
