The Matrix has run out of options? Now what?

I haven't seen one rumour out there that Marion has had anyone interested in signing him. There is now no team out there that will give him more then the MLE. His only option he has to get anywhere near the money he wants is a S&T and i still to be honest don't know who will trade for him at this point. What team out there would have interest in Marion @ 4yrs/32+Mil and would actually give us assets for him.

He and his agent have really over valued themselves and in the process almost have to except a S&T if BC can find someone who'll take him at this point. Has anyone heard anything about anyone being interested in him at all?

After turning down Toronto's 4yr/32Mil (rumoured offer) his agent should be fired. And if his agent advised him to take it and he decided on his own that he didn't want it then he should visit the Wizard of Oz because he's in dire need of a brain.

we won't have the mle if we sign hedo.

I'm betting Hedo won't happen. It's just to get Marion to drop his asking price.

that was my secret hope as well, because signing Hedo cripples our team too much. Summer of "buyers market" and we killed all ability to buy and overpaid for one aqcuisition we make

Hedo's hear to stay.
Marion doesn't know where to go, or who even wants him.

MLE for sure. But he lost about 12M easily


I told you that the Hedo signing was his fault. He wanted 50M...

A team is allowed to sign one player to a contract equal to the average NBA salary, even if the team is over the salary cap already, or if the signing would put them over the cap. This is known as the Mid-level exception (MLE). The MLE may be used on an individual free agent or split among multiple free agents, and is available to any team that exceeds the salary cap at the beginning of the offseason. The Mid-Level Exception for the 2007-08 NBA season was $5.36 million. The MLE is $5.585 million for the 2008-09 NBA regular season.

An example would be the Toronto Raptors' acquisition of Jason Kapono during the 2007 off-season.
Yup we go under the cap by renouncing those guys, so we lose it.

So couldn't we do something like offer Bargs an extension or whatever, up his salary to get us over and then use the MLE?

We can't, but even if we could then we couldn't sign Hedo because we wouldn't have the cap space.
