    The over-38 rule means that 4th year salary hits the cap during the first 3 years, correct?

    I see you're point, but I'm saying what if the Rockets made an agreement to make him a 3 year offer next off season. A hand shake deal, under the table agreement that we will re-sign him for 3 years next off season after a 1 year deal his off season, no matter if injured or whatever happens.

    In the end, he actually would make more money that way too I believe. 16633360 as opposed to 14988891 due to him making 3,477,600 this upcoming season (and getting 120% of that next off season with 5% raises for 3 years.

    [It was originally thought that coach Mike D'Antoni would just opt to rest Hilario during Sunday's game against the Kings to keep him fresh for the playoffs. But, it appears that Hilario is dealing with soreness in his hand, which will keep him sidelined for Monday's action as well.]

    This is my understanding...

    The 4th year is considered "deferred" and the cap hit gets spread over the first 3 years. However, since the Rockets offer is already maxed out in every year of the deal, this can't be done. You either cut the 4th year entirely, or reduce the first 3 years so much to accommodate the deferment that it ends up being the same overall salary anyway.

    I guess Morey needs to go with option B and exhume Bogut's grave so he can offer the dead minimum.

    So he's mad at the league, not at us. If we can't offer him 4 years then no one else can either.

    Heard through the grapevine he may be Spurs-bound. What can they offer?
