Chandler Parsons will make $5 million more than Dirk Nowitzki, who coincidentally, has a standing offer for a max deal with the Rockets.

This makes sense in a couple of ways from Houston's perspective...

1. This is a big "**** you" from Daryl Morey to Mark Cuban. It's no secret that those guys don't like each other and if Cuban is going to make things difficult for Morey, Morey is going to turn around and make things difficult for Cuban.

2. It sends a message to Bosh that Houston will make an offer sheet to other players if he isn't quick in making a decisions.

How is this considered "getting back at Cuban?" This requires absolutely no action from Cuban.

Cuban offered parsons a pretty large contract. It puts morey in a tough position. What morey is doing is just stupid.

If this is his "payback" then Cuban got off extremely easy.

-personally, I think offering parsons $15 m a year will come back to bite you in the *** but at least it's only for 3 yrs

Mr.B
07-09-2014, 09:19 PM

That's just it, offering Dirk a max contract has zero effect on the Mavs. They would have a better shot of talking Jordan out of retirement then getting Dirk to leave Dallas.

If Dirk demands more perhaps it could lower the amount they can offer Parsons. I'm sure Dallas is counting Dirk taking less as cap space.

No way he will give Dirk the max he if Fing with Dallas because they got a verbal agreement from Parsons.

Dirk has already agreed to $10 mil from Dallas. Cuban was willing to offer Dirk the max if that's what he wanted. Dirk agreed to $10 mil so that they could go get more talent. Dirk has zero desire to play in Houston.

1.) I don't mean any offense, and I understand you're a Rockets fan... but come on... No beneficial message could be sent by the Houston organization by this. Dirk Nowitzki is part of select group of players who care more about winning for his team than about money. Everyone states they care more about winning than money, but at the end of the day, they take huge pay checks (Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, etc...). Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki... Even LeBron James/Dwyane Wade in 2010, and Chris Bosh cared more about winning than money.

2.) Do you honestly think Chris Bosh thinks Dirk Nowitzki would ever potentially take that offer? Granted, the Houston Rockets would be going to the WCF, in my opinion, for the next few years with Dirk, but no one really expects this to happen. Chris Bosh probably laughed his *** off when he heard/read this. :eyebrow:

This is what bugs me about pawns like you, yall just regurgitate what the mass perception is about players. You saying Dirk took "a paycut" becuz he cares about winning but compared him to Carmelo( I dont care about Kobe), but lets look at this closer.

1. You compared a 36 year old player on his last contract , accepting a 10 million per yr salary that would end when he is 39 years old, to a 30 yr player entering his prime going for a contract. Why would you do that, is that a fair comparison?

2. Before this recent " PAYCUT" Dirk took( at 36) he made the following.........
2013- 35 yrs old -23 mill( more then Melo)
2012- 34 yrs old -21 mill( more then Melo)
2011- 33 yrs old - 19 mill( more then Melo)
2010 - 32 yrs old - 17 mill ( more then Melo)
2009 - 31 yrs old - 20 mill ( more then Melo)
2008- 30 yrs old - 18 mill( more then Melo)
Etc....

So I'll ask again, is it fair to compare Dirks "PAYCUT" at 36 yrs old to Melo next contract at 30 yrs old? How bout we wait for Melo's contract to run out when he turns 35 and see if he takes this so called "PAYCUT" that the 36 year old dirk took. Ya feel me?

Dirk actually took a pay cut in summer of 2010. His max at the time was 6/162 and he took way less in 4yr/86 or something and now 3/30. So from 2011-16 he will have left 60 million dollars on the table. That's 10 mil a year for 6 years.

scissors
07-10-2014, 12:16 AM
Dirk's max from a different team is 4/105 million. $75 million more than his current alleged deal. WOW.

But Dirk has shown little interest in money throughout his career. He has constantly refused to use his incredible global marketability as an awkward 7 foot white guy with a goofy accent, goofy play style and amazing talent to make money. He has probably turned down over $200 million in endorsement opportunities throughout his career.

Kyben36
07-10-2014, 12:33 AM
this cant be true, a max for a player his age is somewhere around 20-25 mil a year, nearly where kobe is, they cant afford that, no doubt they may have offered him alot, but whoever reported max doesnt understand the nba or how it works.

I agree that its not really fair to compare Dirk's situation to Melo's. Melo is in his prime and has every right to get as much money as he can if that's what he wants. Besides there's a good chance with Phil Jackson in charge that the Knicks will be able to rebuild a very to team around Melo.

Dirk's situation is closer to Duncan and Kobe's. If Dirk walked in to Cuban's office and demanded a max contract Cuban would have given it to him without question. Dirk knows the team needs the money to stay competitive though. So even though he could have gotten a max contract he chose to take a lesser deal. Just like Duncan did on his current deal. Kobe being in the same position chose to take the money. The Lakers were being loyal to him by agreeing to pay him just like Cuban would have done with Dirk.

Actually, Dirk and Bosh max are pretty similar because Dirk took a pretty big paycut in his last contract. So his first year max salary is about $23.5 where as Bosh is like $22. So if HOU could offer Bosh the max then its not too far fetched for Dirk to get it at well. Anyone 10+ years can get a first year of 35% of the cap (Dirk and Bosh fit that). But Dirk's salary last year was high enough that his 105% of previous year is a little higher than 35% of the cap.

IF Dirk had taken a max deal in 2010 he would be eligible to make about $30 this year. But he didn't

no such thing as a 6yr/ 162 contract, that year his max on a 4 yr deal was 96 mill. He took a 4 mill per yr discount at the age of 32. He still averaged 20 mill per yr since 32 yrs of age, 3rd highest paid player in the NBA, 2nd the last 2 yrs at the ages of 34&35, only to Kobe. So the point is Dirk got paid handsomely even though he's OLD( by NBA standards) in a non major market. Again we shall see how much money Melo settles for 6 seasons from now when he's 36 but to compare the 2 now( as far as contracts goes) is silly IMO

2005 CBA: Six years with 10.5 percent raises for Bird free agents; five years with 8 percent raises for other players. Maximum salaries are approximately 25, 30 or 35 percent of the salary cap, depending on the player's years of service.

2011 CBA: Five years with 7.5 percent raises for Bird free agents; four years with 4.5 percent raises for other players (including all sign-and-trade transactions). The maximum salaries are the same as the 2005 CBA, except players coming off their rookie scale contracts qualify for the 30 percent maximum if they meet certain criteria. Minimum and rookie scale salaries are frozen near their 2010-11 levels until revenues rise enough that the reduction is proportional to the 12 percent reduction in the overall system.

Dirk had made $19,795,714 in 2009-10. So 105% of that is $20,785,499.70 which is slightly higher than 35% of the $58,044,000 salary cap so you would use 105% of his previous salary rather than 35% (though this made a marginal first year difference of about $450,000).

With max 10.5% raises over six year with the previously mentioned starting salary here is how the contract would have worked out.
----------If he had maxed ----------- What he actually did---Discount
2010-11 $20,785,499.70 -------------- $17,278,618 -------- $3,506,881.70
2011-12 $22,967,977.17 -------------- $19,092,873 -------- $3,875,104.17
2012-13 $25,379,614.77 -------------- $20,907,128 -------- $4,472,486.77
2013-14 $28,044,474.32 -------------- $22,721,381 -------- $5,323,093.32
2014-15 $30,989,144.13 -------------- $10,000,000 -------- $20,989,144.13
2015-16 $34,243,044.26 -------------- $10,000,000 -------- $24,243,044.26
Total $162,409,714.36 ------------ $100,000,000 -------- $62,409,714.36

PS - Joe Johnson and Amare both had higher salaries than Dirk this year as well as Kobe. We're splitting hairs here. BUT the 20m and 24m paycuts are nothing to sneeze at.

In their prime they could form one of the most exciting duo of the Nba. But right now this is a troll move. Morey is just playing right now,offering to a 36 years old player,well known for being a extremely loyal player(to Dallas)?And the lenght of the deal? Morey is trying to be the smartass,but when free agency will be over he'll remain with leftovers and Houston won't survive the playoffs like last year.

Honestly,this made me laugh,it's just so surreal.
