a little much for a back center so not sure if the bulls will match

but as a starter this contract could end up being a steal by the end of the contract,

good centers are hard to find, ones that can play defense



bulls should match and offer boozer and noah for howard,

c howard
pf gibson
sf deng
sg rip
pg rose

this gives them a chance of at least beating the heat the current roster cant beat the miami heat in my opinion

Smart move really. If the Bulls match the team would have 4 players at 61mil - not a good position since theyre 8 short of a roster.

Camby will be leaving for a contender so the Rockets are really dry up in the Center position. He could possibly be in the starting lineup. Possibly playing 24-28 minutes a game.

Keeping 1st round 3 picks in one draft year and way overpaying this guy makes me think Kevin McHale is actually in charge. WTF is going on in Houston.

Moments like this wish I were 7 feet tall. Even I have a better offensive game than Asik.

I just realized today why the NBA is so fucked when it comes to parity. If you describe parity as the ability of all teams to have an equitable chance of signing and retaining talent and the overall outcome of many teams winning championships rather than dominating dynasties comes down to this: you either need a system that puts all teams on the same footing money-wise, aka a hard cap like hockey, so that teams can't just go over each other's heads because there's a set limit (and minimum) to spend on your whole roster, or you need a system with absolutely no monetary restraints or tiered tax system, like in baseball, so that if asinine GMs want to overpay for someone they can, but that it would cripple their franchise down the road to make such costly contracts.

Or maybe I'm just upset and realized that the amnesty provision actually heavily encourages offering bad contracts because you can just annul them at your leisure for cap room.

i don't see asik as a back up center, i actually believe he is one of the better centers in the league, only problem he played behind one of the best defensive centers in the league in noah

i like him better than dalembert and he's so paid

plus its one of the hardest positions to fill, Raptors in its history only had one good center and we traded him away to the knicks before he got good

.
Amnesty only counts for contracts prior to the new CBA.

Re: the backloading

It's a result of the Gilbert Arenas provision in the CBA. It's the same rule that was being talked about in regards to offers extended to Jeremy Lin. It's in place to help teams from losing restricted free agents that have only played for 2 years or less.

Asik was a 2nd round pick. Like other 2nd rounders, his rookie deal only lasted 2 years. So any offer sheets Asik signs are subject to the Arenas provision. The provision limits the amount another team can offer during the first 2 years of the sheet. They can only offer the value of the non-tax paying mid-level exception for the first year, with a 4.5% raise during the second year. BUT, and this is the kicker, the 3rd year of the contract is alllowed to be as high as the best offer that the team (Houston) could have made if the provision was not in place. Since Houston has a shitload of cap space, they are able to offer that $15 mill at the backend of the contract. Technically, to do this though, they really only needed about $8.4 in cap space, since that is the average salary over the 3 years of the contract.

It's worth taking note of that last part, because if we miss out on Nash, it's possible that we will go after Lin. If Colangelo does decide to go after Lin, he will probably make a similar type of offer, except probably with a 4th year included. He might offer Lin $32 mill over 4 years, with the contract looking something like 5/5/11/11 - but the cap hit would be $8 mill.
