    How Can Cleveland Afford Max Contracts For Their Big 3?

    We all know about Irvings contract and that Lebron wants a max contract too. Now their going to sign love for 20 mil a year too?

    Lebron told Gilbert he better pay the luxury tax if he wants him there. But it'll all work out if they get a title since Lebron probably generates well more than what the luxury tax penalties are.

    Tristan Thompson will easily get like $9 mil a year as well minimum after this season. Waiters is going like $7 mil at minimum next offseason. The salary cap is expected to increase though at that time.

    Which is why we need a hardcap.

    There's something called a soft-cap and a hard-cap, you can surpass the soft-cap or hard-cap to resign your own players or others using the MLE or vetran minimum. Only once you go over the hard cap do you pay a dollar for dollar tax

    I think they can just get away w/it right now, but once they gotta pay TT & Waiters, their going to have some problems.

    Wat? 7 mil at minimum? Stuckey just got the vets min, they're comparable players. TT is not even a starting caliber big.

    16 M a year between those two turds, at a minimum? Who on earth would do that?

    How Can Cleveland Afford Max Contracts For Their Big 3?

    In a year Cleveland will be Miami 2.0. Big three and a bunch of ring chasers past their prime. That's actually why I was opposed to them trading wiggins. What if he really becomes a star? With his rookie scale contract they could have had

    Irving
    Wiggins
    James
    Thompson
    Verajao

    6th man waiters
    And a good amount of $ to spend on free agents.

    And people will take a paycut to play with LeBron

    Verajao's $9.7 million comes off the books after this year.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Lebron can help the Cavs generate a decent profit in the future which may make paying the luxury taxes easier.

    Which pretty much evens out with Kyrie's contract. I'm pretty sure James told Gilbert that he doesn't want any ******** going on and if they want to win, they better be willing to make some sacrifices. Heck, Gilbert is probably more than willing consider James drove his franchise to about $1 billion+. This franchise and city is only going to get more revenue over the years. I just can't figure out why Micky was being so cheap. You lose LeBron, your franchise value drops - that's pretty much a guarantee.

    Until a star player or an above average young player takes less, this statement is false; not because of the Lbj factor, it's because of the living in Cleveland factor.

    Time will tell though.
