Default Re: Bulls Summer Ideas

Kirk, you always harp on people for not knowing the business aspects of the NBA, so I have a question/comment about the business you mentioned.

You said that you can go over the cap in the NBA, which is true... but I'm pretty sure that you're not allowed to sign a FA from ANOTHER TEAM that would make you go over the cap. For example, if the Bulls were, in theory, 8 million UNDER the cap this off-season (in theory, of course) then we could NOT sign Brand for 10 million, but we COULD sign Deng for 10 million.

Is that not how it works? So we have no shot of outright signing Brand this offseason, even though you're "allowed" to go over the cap.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that' show it works.
