But the rest is definitely a plus.

If Dragic wants max, he can leave tbh.

If Luol wants more money, he might have to go too.

Dragic said he would have no issue going forward with minutes at shooting guard.

League to teams: Significant salary-cap jumps loom
Quote:

At this week's NBA Board of Governors meetings in New York, teams were advised ‎that the league's salary cap could rise past the $100 million mark as soon as the 2017-18 season, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that based on current projections, league officials expect the salary cap to increase from its current $63.1 million figure to $67.1 million next season, $89 million in 2016-17 and $108 million in 2017-18. The jumps represent massive increases triggered largely by the influx of television money that will begin pouring in after the 2015-16 season, when the NBA's new nine-year, $24 billion TV deal kicks in.

To put it into perspective, the largest salary-cap jump in history is $7 million in one season.

‎Sources say the league, though, has been careful to stress to its teams that these are not mere projections but are also contingent on the NBA and its players avoiding a work stoppage after the 2016-17 season. Both sides have the right to opt out of the current labor agreement by Dec. 15, 2016.

NBA teams were informed Thursday of the latest salary-cap forecasts as well as ‎projected jumps in the luxury tax threshold from its current figure of $76.8 million to $81.6 million next season, $108 million in 2016-17 and $127 million in 2017-18, sources said.

In subsequent years, sources said, league officials are projecting a slight decrease in the cap, down to $100 million in 2018-19 (with ‎a $121 million tax line), $102 million in 2019-20 (with a $124 million tax line) and $107 million in 2020-21 with a $130 million tax line.

Last month, the NBA announced that the players' union had formally rejected a so-called "cap-smoothing" proposal that would have paid players the same 51 percent of basketball-related income they get under the current collective bargaining agreement while artificially lowering the cap over several years to prevent a big spike -- which would dramatically raise salary levels for free agents that season -- and would phase in the increase over several years.

The league suggested that the difference be given to the union in a lump sum and divided evenly among all players so instead of a few free agents benefiting in 2016, all players would get a smaller piece of the TV rights deal increase. But National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts believed long term it would not be a benefit to the players, so the union rejected the proposal.

Information from ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst was used in this report.

Marc Stein, Senior Writer, ESPN.com




Can you imagine RIles with THAT MUCH CAP SPACE? eek.gif

How's everyone feeling about Spo? I've been a bit weary of his offense this season.

I like Spo, I think they should replace some assistance before coming for Spo's head... offense needs work tho

 

We lose Spo and could be looking at multiple years of mediocre coaches

 

Just look at the Magics, Nuggets, or Lakers, and etc.

 

He's not Pop but He's an experienced and ethical coach that I would take a risk on

I cut so some slack this year cause of the injuries he had to deal with. Before the season started our projected starting lineup was Chalmers, wade, Deng,mcroberts, and bosh. Pretty much all those guys missed a expended amount of time this year. Everything he had he had to try and fix on the fly.

Seems like Riles has a change of heart on the draft

 

 

Pat Riley suggests the Heat might be looking to draft a three-point shooting guard but doesn't want a one-dimensional player.

Is it fair of me to assume that Riley seems to regret drafting Shabazz

i dont think so. napier has been injured but before then he was showing signs that he could be useful. but thats up to spo honestly. the thing is, shabazz CAN shoot the 3 (at least the college 3 so we'll see how that translates) we all see that we need shooters. we mishandled james jones period. ray dipped. miller gone. our best 3pt shooter right now, is pretty much chris bosh. let that sink in. we've gotta do better.

 

this is the SECOND year in a row riles has mentioned spo's failures as a coach. like i said, if i was spo.... theyd already be 5 days into a complete shooting boot camp. by NOW there wouldve been considerable improvement in players shots...

With all this talk on a faster offense... I hope Riles doesn't get fooled into giving Walker another chance.

 

Even tho... McBob, Walker... Myles Turner could be a threat from back there, comin' off the bench.

 

As for bench shooters... I can see at least 2 changes being made

 

I think it will ultimately come too either Bazz or Tj and Chalmers... or a surprise cut: Zoki... who I actually think would be more suited for a faster offense.

 

I hope they also have in mind how they are going to make space for a backup C

Quotes recently from Deng... I don't think him or Ennis were comfortable trying to be spot up shooters, going to be interesting.

 

Quote:

 “I don’t really like to just stand still. It’s not my strength. I could shoot a high percentage but I’m not per se a shooter. I slash, I cut. I’m better in motion than standing still. When I played [for] Scott Skiles [in Chicago], he didn’t want me shooting any threes. He wanted me close to the rim. My whole focus was the mid-range….This year, [Erik Spoelstra] wanted me to take the corner threes more than I’ve done in the past….Not having someone like Josh [McRoberts] definitely hurts my game.”

 

I don't know if + a new SF or + all our injured players will fix most of the problems... but still interesting

In, let's make some moves
post #53 of 2814

napier definitely has handles. i just want to see him dial in his shot (like the rest of our team needs to) and get integrated. deng speaking the truth. but... you all know already what it is. coaches not using players to their potential? sounds like a job for eric spoelstra!

post #57 of 2814
What did ya'll think of Pat Riley's comments when he said, "no more smiling faces with hidden agendas." He later clarified and said it was a general statement, but do ya'll think he was really referring to LeBron?

If he was do y'all agree with what he said? To me he's kinda right becasue the Heat seem to have a good bearing on who is coming back and what we have to do to build a competitive team for future seasons.

Even more so, Pat's comments about drafting rookies was very strong. He said there are really no rookies outside of Marcus Smart currently getting minutes on a playoff team. The Heat seen to be in the market for a all around player in this draft. A "3PD" player.... one who could shoot 3's, be a play-maker, and defend.
post #58 of 2814

Riley responded to a question, he didn't straight up attack LeBron,

 

And yea' it's a lot better knowing essensally who is going to be

 

 

Last year couldn't have been easy to deal with and surely could have gone a lot worse

 hope that he makes that leap next year, not sure that Heat trust him enough to give him consistent minutes.

 

- need to work on handles and controlling himself at times... him and Bazz working together next year could be great... just not sure that they will get consistent minutes. Good thing that everybody will finally get in on a full training camp

 

We'll see what is what soon
