Timberwolves Salary Situation

I am no Shakespeare so I apologize if this isn’t as eloquent as most posts on here.

This lays out our salary for the upcoming year so we can see what our potential options are.

Assumptions made:

1. Beasley and Randolph are not offered their QO

2. Brad Miller retires and files the correct paperwork on time eliminating his contributions on the cap. (http://www.shamsports.com/whatthedeuce.htm)

3. Tolliver’s rights renounced (renounce his early bird FA rights)

This is the roster as it stands with our total salary

These numbers are immediately eliminated when we renounce the rights to the player.

Cap limits:

“The NY Post has reported that sources, presumably the Knicks, have informed it that economic projections say that the NBA salary cap will grow to about $60-$61 million for the 2012-13 season. The salary cap for 2011-12 was set at $58,044,000 in negotiations over the collective bargaining agreement. Remember that the exact number of the cap relies upon a projection of basketball related income and is not set until July before each season. I’ll use the $60M in this post as a nice square number.”

Totally barebones but like I said I’m no writer. You can use this as a guideline to see what our current possibilities are. The links above provide great resources for anyone looking to assess other teams and the like. Storytellerscontracts.com seems to have the most up to date info, but Shamsports.com does a good job of laying out the specifics (just remember if you put your cursor over the name it gives more info).

Props to EiM for the idea
