Default Wait???

From D Smith


Now, the picks are okay I guess get their own back, when Heat finish their 82-0 season their first-rounder wont be so good but the trade exception is huge.

And puts a lot of pressure on Bryan.

What it does is allow him to obtain a player or players without giving anyone up in return, if he wants.

Its like having a salary cap credit of $14.5 million and thats not a bad thing to have in the pocket.

I presume hell go looking for a team with tax issues that might want to dump a good player with a big deal and see what he can work out.

He could also be the king-making in a multi-team deal since he can help one capped out team get the guy it wants and pick up an asset or two in the process by being the middle man in some deal.

But heres the big question:

When?

Do you do it now or wait until the season unfolds and see whats going on around the league? Do you try to make a little move now and save some of exception for later on?

Do you make a big splash this summer?

Me?

I wait a little bit.

Maybe, just maybe, if I can find a free agent out there now who might be amenable to coming in some kind of sign-and-trade transaction I would make a tiny summer deal but Id hang on to the biggest chunk of it and Im talking $9 million at least, probably $10 million until the season unfolds and things start to really shake out.

Now I usually think D Smith is on the money, but not today.

Hello Doug!!! It is a sellers market!!! If we don't move on something soon nothing good will be had later.

My thought about the TPE really is to either use it soon or not at all.

Maybe BC uses it next year towards the due date, but to me that's a gamble, because he would only have like a day to compete with all other teams once the FA period begins.

Soon or NOT AT ALL? Why not at all? And BC waiting until next summer makes no sense since he might om his way out the door by next July. Imo he needs to get on it now, if something good is there and can get done then do it. If not don't rush it, and maybe just use some of it now and the rest next Jan-Feb. The pressure is on him and I would imagine he already has several targets for this money since it's what he wanted all along.

Not at all because we have plenty big nasty contracts and with upcoming CBA its perhaps better to keep some salary space?
But you can trust BC to pull off something remarkable again. Now he isn't in a rush to create a win-now team for Bosh, he'll wait for perfect opprotunity.
