    Are you aware that Mirotic had a complete blowup with his Spanish team at the end of last season and bought out his contract without having signed a contract with the Bulls? I could be wrong, but I...

    Still not sold that the Bulls actually gave Mirotic a guarantee. He lost all leverage when he left his Spanish club. Along with all major analysts holding firm that he's been offered. I don't...

    SAS and ESPN are schills for the Knicks and everything else NY. He's sees Love going to Cleveland or Chicago and making his favorite team irrelevant for the near term future.

    Thanks for chiming in without being one of those fans that goes to other forums screaming. True, Wiggins is easily the single best piece in either deal. The Bulls, though, are probably offering the...

    It doesn't look like it'd work financially. Gibson/Mirotic/McDermott salaries match up almost exactly with Love, especially after trade kickers. The Bulls don't really have the salaries to even out...

    Gotta give to get. You'd get some veteran ring chasers to fill out the roster. The starting lineup outside of SF would be pretty stacked and there are enough versatile players to fill out the...

    You'd have to structure it as a hybrid of the current bonus pool system. Have true free agency with something like a team's top 10 bonuses having to fall within the team's bonus pool and teams...

    No worries. The Magic HAD to send something back, so they sent back a worthless prospect. Most teams have foreign guys like him that never panned out. The guy will never see the NBA and isn't...

    It's close. By my calculation, with a $63.2 cap, all of the guarantees, McDermott's rookie scale, and Rip's stretch provision would take the Bulls down to $12.8. In addition, teams are required to...

    I edited into my previous post the two pieces that make me think it COULD be possible, even though I doubt it is.

    The McDermott part takes the Bulls from under the cap to over the cap. I don't know if that loophole actually exists, though. Probably not.

    Edit:
    So it's actually 20%, not 5%. Here are the...

    Actually, is it possible to 1) amnesty Boozer and then sign Gasol to contract that puts the Bulls right up against the cap, then; 2) sign McDermott to the allowed overage on a rookie deal to put the...

    Unfortunately all of the James, Amundsen, and Brewer contracts will probably be for naught. In order to sign Gasol and Mirotic, the Bulls will have to both amnesty Boozer and renounce all of those...

    It's impossible to sign Pau outright without first amnestying Boozer. Nothing sounds official yet, so unless the Bulls are able to somehow reengage the Lakers in a sign-and-trade, all ideas of...

    There's so many damn rules in the NBA CBA. I just took a look at the Bulls roster to see where they're at. Assuming Pau, Mirotic, Smith, and Boozer all go as expected, they'll have 10 players under...

    His contract is for $948K, but if he's traded, his roster spot automatically has ~$500K minimum cap hold for salary cap purposes. So it really only frees up about $450K in cap space.

    That's disappointing. Is the $450k in savings really that important? Guess this means Boozer's finally getting amnestied.

    I haven't seen it discussed anywhere, but the thing that stands out to me about the Lebron contract with the Cavs is that it's for only two years. The consequence is that the contract will not give...

    But my first post was in response to someone saying we probably won't like how much Gasol gets. Removing Gasol from the equation changes the key premise and makes the entire thing irrelevant.

    $42.5 between Rose/Noah/Gibson, about $10 for Gasol, $2.5 for McDermott, $1.5 for Snell, $0.333 for Rip. That's about $57M. Another $3M for minimum cap holds, assuming Butler keeps a roster spot,...

    I don't think it matters. The Bulls will be over the salary cap for the foreseeable future anyways. I suppose it could have luxury tax implications, but that's about it.

    It is a pretty new pitch for him, so I'm just holding out hope that he hasn't quite had the time to perfect the delivery on it yet (and that he will). But yeah, you're not likely to succeed with 93...

    He does throw both a two and four-seamer, so 88 mph fastballs and 93 mph fastballs are to be expected depending on which he's throwing. He obviously has some butterflies since he doesn't have his...

    Well, Tribune says that the Bulls are intensifying efforts to sign-and-trade for Gasol using Boozer's contract. Would be superb, depending on what else would go back, as it lets the team keep the...
