I believe that 9 million of the deal is incentive based...But nevertheless....

It is a 6 Year-$71 Million contract that could go up to $80 Million depending on how good the team does. It will average anywhere between $11.7-$13.3 Million. I guess it was a little high, but it is better than losing him for nothing next year. Now all we have to do is re-sign Gordon and we will compete with you guys for a playoff spot!

Forgive my ignorance, but how much money do you guy's have left to sign Gordon. Or how far over the cap are you willing to go I should say. I really don't believe he is going to Europe. ...Also, so are you guy's going to trade Hinrich or Gordon?? I know you'd rather ship off hughes, but that's a really tough sell.

We are around $60 Million depending on wheter the contract declines or inclines. After we sign Rose, we will have around $7 Million to sign Gordon because our owner won't go over the luxury-cap threshold even if he had a gun pointed to his head. So unless BG7's contract would increase gradually, I don't know what'll happen. Probably a sign-and-trade with Gordon or we will trade Kirk for cap relief to sign Gordon. It's a bad situation to be in.

Ive always like Deng's game and I think he could potentially be worth this contract. I just think its funny that he was offered 5yrs/57mil(declined) last year, had a bad year, then gets 6/71 this year.

Bulls need to make a trade!! If they can make the right trade , they might make the playoffs. Miami if they can make a couple moves ECF!!!
