      Is the Bima part the Bimah? I've always wondered and just thought to ask now.

      Thank You for understanding what I was trying to do when I made that thread earlier today. I just wanted to create a thread where all salary cap questions could be asked in a single thread. I didn't know that (at that time) there was a thread made previously for the same thing. I'll make sure to not make that mistake in the future; Thanks again for understanding what I was trying to do. - Nick_713

      Are you coming out with another salary cap update? One that will explain what we can offer anyone next year, specifically Smith and maybe Dragic if we get him via trade?? Thank you in advance.

      Just curious... could the contract of Ryan Anderson be absorbed by Lin TPE? I think it is a couple of 100K short, but I wanted to confirm. Thanks in advance!

      Are you on facebook (even if it is just for following)? Not a fan of the twitter.

      Can the Rockets use Bird Rights to Chandler parsons to go over the salary cap then trade him for someone of equal incoming salary and still not pay tax? i.e. Rockets trade Lin and Asik for a re-signed Melo, then sign parsons for $12M? Then trade Parsons for idk David West?

      Hey Bima! I don't know if you have enough info for the various CBA as it is in the past and how they would affect roster composition, but I'd like to bounce this question to you (feel free to forward to other people if you find it interesting too): How well, generally, (via reg win-loss or playoff results or etc) do Top-heavy teams fair in comparison to teams with more evenly distributed cap space? Is there a tipping point of success? Is there either an amount of $ OR a certain number of players that take up X amt (or %) of cap space that is an historic red flag for being a team that performs below expectations (i.e. bad w/l compared to $ paid or whatever).

      Bima, do you have a book that you have read to learn and understand everything cap related, if so could you perhaps let me know. i need a new challenge and learning the cap is something that intrigues me

      Bima, I had a meeting today with Monte (Houston Rockets Director), and I told him I loved your articles and sent your link over.

      Alright, so I was just thinking about the recent contracts we gave for Garcia and Casspi. What if the Rockets are trying to make a run in the 2015 free agency. Rondo and Aldridge are two notable free agents. Lets say the Rockets trade for one of them this season with Asik and then 2015 FA we sign the other w/ the cap space we got and the other with bird rights. The chances of Morey doing that are very low, but do you think Morey might be thinking of that? Is it even possible? Thanks!

      Bima,

      What is the latest time that these trades made today can be aggregated and combined with any other trades? Is it 24 hours from when they were approved by the league office or is it "same day" as in midnight tonight?

      I'm talking about combining trades so that we can generate TPE's, etc. If we go past that time frame in attempting to trade for Dwight, then we lose some flexibility that we have at the moment.

      Clarify something for me. Since we have Goran's birds rights, can we use up our cap space this offseason, signing Lee and possibly someone else until we are at $58 million and then after we do all that, can we offer Dragic a contract based on the fact that we have his Birds rights?

      If so, then that puts us over the cap. I am assuming we would not have our MLE until 2013 unless we sneak under the cap somehow during next season.

      Thanks - wasn't aware and have googled around for it with no dice.

      Ok, here's another question.

      Can Kobe voluntarily take a reduction in pay? In order to facilitate more cap space to sign a player under the cap?

      I'm thinking of a scenario where the Lakers clear out cap space by trading say Pau and Metta to us for nothing and trading Bynum to anotehr team with cap space like Boston along with Walton and Blake for nothing, basically clearing out their cap for Dwight and Deron.

      Can Kobe take a voluntary reduction in pay to get both of thoe guys to the Lakers on max contracts or anybody else for that matter?
