Jazz are deep at pg. Will Mack stay or be dealt off?
I think Shelvin stays. Trey Burke and Neto are the odd men out, imo.
$#@%ing autocorrect... :drunk:
Looks like the Jazz will be picking up the guarantee on the last year of his contract today, worth $2.4 million. Congrats Shelvin!
Considering the new NBA salaries with the increase cap, $2.4 million is a gross underpayment for Mack now. If he has half the season he did last year with the Jazz he will get a massive raise next year.
Agree 100%. The cap takes another huge jump next summer, and he should be in line for a nice payday. Gordon will as well if he decides to opt out of the last year of his deal next summer. If I remember correctly, one article I was reading said that if he were so inclined, he could be looking at up to $30 mil/year. The numbers getting thrown about are almost cartoonish at the top of the pyramid.
I was eating a sandwich when I read your $30 million comment. I almost lost it in laughter. Then again as bizarre as the NBA is becoming that may happen.
Don't want you to choke on that sandwich! Here is the article I saw that number in:
The salary cap jumps 57% over a two-year period starting this year (2015: $70 million, 2016: $94 million, 2017: $110 million), which is leading to the new level of craziness.
I saw where some guard from Indianapolis is going to get $30 million playing for Memphis! That comes out to around $1,000 a minute! Once the salary cap is at $110 million it will cost the owners +\- $100,00 a game! Insane.
As insane as it sounds, Hayward absolutely could end up making 30 million/year. Conley had a lower VORP than Hayward this year and will make that. And the cap is going to go up before Hayward's next deal. If Hayward is the same player in his contract year that he has been the last 2 seasons, he could be looking at something like a 5 year 170 million dollar deal - you know, more than the NFL's top player Andrew Luck. It's truly mind boggling. Our boy G-Time could make a quarter of a billion dollars playing hoops before it's all over.
Can't wait for us to break ground on the Hayward-Mack-Stevens Butler Basketball Facility...:drunk:
Yea right. You may be waiting a very long time. I saw Hayward and the Jazz play SA in person last December with my son and son-in law and it cost me around $450 to watch him score eight points and play twenty minutes. That worked out to around $2,000 a point. That will be the very last NBA game that I will ever attend.
Not to be a horse's ass, I wouldn't pay $450 for a season ticket; this is coming from an old guy who saw the Kautskys (sp?), the Olympians, and lord knows how many other iterations. Actually saw Buckshot play; would take a Crosstown bus to 30th & Meridian and then transfer to a bus which dropped us (my brother and me) at the Fieldhouse. As far as attending your last NBA game, BLESS YOU!
The $450 was for three seats.It was a bonding experience. My son is an avid SA fan and I wanted to see Hayward play. Like I said I'll never go to another NBA game ever. Don't know how anyone can get that much enjoyment out of what it costs.
Attending NBA games isn't as expensive as you're making it out to be. I went to about 5 Pacers games this year. Tickets were $15-$20 per game on Stubhub. You can pay a lot more if you buy from the box office, sit closer to the court, or want to see the Cavs/Warriors when they're in town. The salary cap isn't exploding because of ticket costs, it's because of a crazy new TV deal.
Shelvin's contact online shows he is an unrestricted free agent. How awesome would it be if both Gordon and Shelvin went to Boston!
Not going to happen, PG is a spot Boston is covered at between IT, Smart, and Rozier

Shelving finalizing details on 2 year 12million contract with Orlando!

Small potatoes in the current NBA, but this is huge for him as he has only made $8.8 million in the 6 years he's played in the league so far. If he's been smart with his money, he should easily be in a spot where he could live pretty comfortably off of what he'll have made for the rest of his life. Good for him!
Good day for a good guy.
