$12,364,282 in cap space




Breakdown from the excellent Shamsports:

Portland Trail Blazers

Committed salary for 2013/14: $44,640,165 (view full forecast)

Projected cap space: $12,364,282


Luke Babbitt, Elliot Williams and Nolan Smith are all surely done in Portland. It would be patently ridiculous if Sasha Pavlovic's unguaranteed $1,399,507 wasn't waived. Eric Maynor, much as they like him, is worth neither his $3,351,387 qualifying offer nor his $5,846,803 cap hold. And J.J. Hickson is also supposedly done there. Hickson's cap hold of $7.6 million isn't too bad, but we'll assume here he is renounced/quickly signs elsewhere. This leaves Portland with:


LaMarcus Aldridge: $14,628,000
Nic Batum: $11,295,250
Wesley Matthews: $6,875,480
Damien Lillard: $3,202,920
Joel Freeland: $2,897,976
Meyers Leonard: $2,222,160
#10: $1,424,520
Victor Claver: $1,330,000
Will Barton: $788,872
Roster charge: $490,180
Roster charge: $490,180
Roster charge: $490,180

Total = $46,135,718 = $12,364,282 in cap room

I frequent Storytellers site far more often, but this offers an actual analysis of every single team at this time.

With this type of money - should blazers really give up both the #10 pick and the capspace (or a good bit of it) for a center?
