Jason Quick comments on Blazers' cap situation this summer

11

Jason says that Portland will "have between $15 million and $20 million to sign free agents" and that this is "more free agent money than they have ever had". I just find it interesting considering that several years ago, looking forward to the summer of 2009, Quick told us that "Now that Miles' $9 million salary for the next two seasons is off the books, the Blazers will have between $25 million and $33 million to lure free agents" but then reported in July of 2009 that "The NBA salary cap has been set for the 2009-2010 season at $57.7 million, which puts the Trail Blazers $7.7 million under the cap." Granted, Miles' amount went back against the cap, but where did the other $8.3 to $16.3 million in cap space go? As I said, I just thought it interesting for him to claim that this summer's cap room will be "more than they ever had" given his track record of predicting cap room....
