Put your money where your mouth is.

Much discussion has been about the cap space plan and other various financial assets but here is my question to you: If you were KP what contracts would you offer to our players when their time comes? Granted we cannot predict players progressing or regressing in skill, nor can we speculate how much $$ is important to individual players, is it important to be on a winning team with a lot of guys you like? or is it better to take the $$ and run to greener pastures.

 

While those questions are difficult to answer the best we can do is speculate.

 

Here are the salary situations in the years to come

 

 2008-09

Raef: Player option lilely to opt-in for $12.7

Jones: 50/50 to opt-out, if opt-out I would offer a 3 year $4/yr deal $12 total/3yrs

Work out an extension with Frye for $5/yr for 4 years

Work out an extension with Webster for $5/yr for 3 years

Trade Jack and the 13th for the 7th or 8th (Gordon or Westbrook) and filler

2009-10

Extend TO at $8-9/year for 4 years

Extend Blake at $4/yr for 3 years

Use cap space to sign super-role player FA at $8-9/year or maybe not

2010-11

Extend Roy at $14/yr for 6yrs

Extend Aldrige $14/yr for 6 yrs

Resign Joel for $6/yr for 3 years

2011-2012

Extend Oden at $15/yr for 6 yrs

So we will have in 2011-12

Considering Roy, LMA, Oden, TO, Webster, Fryes contracts all raise about 8%/yr

Roy $15mill

LMA $15mill

Oden$15mill

Outlaw $9mill

Joel $6.5mill

Webster $6mill

Frye $6mil

Blake $4mill

Jones $4mill

 FA 2009 $8-9mill

Gordon/Westbrook $4mill

 McBob $1mill

Sergio $2mill

That comes to about $96.5 million dollars, figure the cap in  2011 will be about $65-70million. For comparison we are paying $74mill and the cap is $55mill.The Mavs are highest at $105mill, followed by

NY: $88mill

Den: $81mill

Cle: $81mill

Bos $75mill

Portland: $74mill

It would be expensive buut trophies are worth it.
