    Love your stuff, but I would have touched slightly on how this affects our cap room for that major star next offseason ;)

    So there's no legitimate basketball excuse to go the route of operating under the cap.

    Nice to know that Les won't have any other excuses this year to be cheap. That being said, this still isn't motivation enough for him to go into the tax. I hope we commit to a capped-out core before the other pieces of our core get too old or leave.

    Can we also throw another $1 million outgoing salary into that contract goulash 30 days after signing Capela? I.e. like it appears the Cavs are doing with Wiggins before the delayed Love trade.

    Thanks Bima. I've been wondering how the Rockets could potentially use Hamilton and Garcia in a trade to help match salaries. Very helpful post.
