    Trent's deal starts at 16M even now (17.28M, 18.56M following years), plus 250k in bonuses every year.

    Any update on where we are cap wise? I heard we are pretty close to the tax.
    This piece breaks down the current situation, though it is slightly out of date with some new salary numbers reported for Trent Jr making the rounds now.

    https://www.raptorshq.com/2021/8/7/2...ary-cap-update

    The update would be:

    13 NBA deals
    2 two-way deals
    133.7M against the cap (21.3M over)
    134.9M against the tax (1.75M under)

    That includes Trent's bonuses. Assumes Yuta and Wainwright make the team (their heavy guarantees suggest they will).

    A minimum deal for a non-draftee is 1.67M, so they no longer need to sign Banton as the 14th guy to fit everything.

    If they sign a non-draftee minimum they will be 78k short of the tax. If they sign Banton they will be ~800k short of the tax. Both with 14 guys, neither with room for a 15th guy.

    Wrote a thing in two parts to prep for free agency and specifically to prep for the Lowry decision. First part up now (more interesting second part up later today or tomorrow):

    Quick summary of potential cap room this summer from other threads:

    DanH wrote: View Post

    Keeping Fred, OG, Pascal, Flynn, Boucher, 4th pick, Trent's rights, $18.3M in cap room. Goes to $21.4M if we do the shenanigans with Trent.

    Drop Boucher and it becomes $24.4M in room, and up to $27.5M with the Trent shenanigans.

    Worth noting those amounts work out to, assuming a 4 year offer:
    $18.3M => 4/78.7M, 19.7M AAV
    $21.4M => 4/92.0M, 23.0M AAV
    $24.4M => 4/104.9M, 26.2M AAV
    $27.5M => 4/118.3M, 29.6M AAV

    Not much changed for this summer from the deadline. Except they can still have a solid chunk of cap space while keeping GTJ where they couldn't with Norm.

    If they operate over the cap then nothing has changed.

    I wrote a piece on RHQ that goes deep on all the trades and the Lowry non-trade.

    Personally I've seen enough of Johnson. Although I'd honestly prefer they cut McCaw, but they will never do that.

    I have no read on what they will do with TD. Although I wouldn't assume they keep him just because they let him stay past his guarantee date. They can afford to cut his minimum salary if they'd prefer to take more time with the decision (also opens up more trade leverage).
    Well fair enough. He hasn't impressed yet, that's for sure! But he did shut down #KAWHI2021 that time? idk.

    Ya TD is hard to read. Thanks for the insight re the guarantee I was wondering about that!

    I'm sure someone else will want him if the Raps don't! (Mavs anyone?? They seem to hav a thing for sexual assaulters #BOYCOTTPORZINGIS

    anyway

    Gotta keep the Raps culture clean for

    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.
