76ers Wanna Impress me Bryan???

Then convince the boys down at the MLSE that an NBA championship is a good thing for revenue, then, sign this guys to more than he's worth.

2. Andre Iguodala, Sixers: Iguodala's decision to turn down a $57 million deal last summer is tough to justify. At the time, the Sixers appeared to be the only team with significant cap room; I'm not sure where he thought his next paycheck would come from. Now that Elton Brand's on board, expect the Sixers to do everything possible to lock him up.

This is about as likely as getting Marty McFly to take us back a few years in the Delorean and actually drafting him.

My goodness that would be a scary team though.

As far as the Raptors are concerned, there's no way MLSE goes above and beyond for them. They're not the Leafs and wouldn't generate much more revenue like the Leafs would.

I dunno Hoops. A winning team, a championship contending winning team, could grab a large market much like the Jays did in their World Series years. Hell, all of Canada save for BC and the eastern provinces were Blue Jay fans.

The problem is, and as the Jays are finding out now, is sustaining that excitement for years.

Raptors are over the cap and it is under my understanding that that limits them to using the MLE and LLE to sign players other than ones already on the team

1. What is a salary cap? Why have one?

A salary cap is a limit on the amount teams can spend on player contracts, which helps to maintain competitive balance in the league. Without a salary cap, teams with deeper pockets can simply outspend the remaining teams for the better free agents. The basic idea is that a team can only sign a free agent if the total payroll for the team will not exceed the salary cap. So a team with deep pockets is playing on a level playing field with every other team.

Sorry a team cannot go over the cap to sign a free agent unless they have a players Bird Rights, a player is a restricted free agent, or a team uses LLE or the MLE

So then it looks like we won't get Iggy then. But I just have one question. Exactly how much cap space do we have right now? Don't we have like $1 000 left or something?

That's way too much tax anyway. Paying a little tax is one thing, but going the Knicks route is way too risky.

Paying luxury tax, even a little is bad because not only is a team paying the tax, it also does not participate in the re-distribution of the tax money collected from other tax-paying teams!

It's just a bad business practice.

Yeah well we can't change the past and that's what happens when you don't scout for players, especially when you have the 8th choice of the draft

Uh...you know Iggy is a restricted free agent right?

And are you familiar with the concept of the sign and trade?
