Default Re: Off Season Numbers The Cap and Luxury Tax

correct on the bi annual although it doesn't have to be a two year contract it can be only one, but like you said they only get one every other year

Where as a restricted free agent, signs an offer sheet and LAL can match? but not pass the amount right?
he becomes restricted when his team makes him a qualifying offer, if no qualifying offer is made he remains a unrestricted free agent...

but once that qualifying offer is made that sets the wheels in motion, he can except the offer and if it's a max can sign up to 6 years or if it's not a max he becomes a unrestricted free agent the following season

or once a qualifying offer has been made other teams can make offers and like you said the lakers can match the offers..

that's what happend with turiaf, lakers made a qualifying offer, golden state made their bid the lakers didn't match.

even if a qualifying offer is made the player and team he played for can reach a settlement on a contract that doesn't fall under the qualifying max qualifying offer guidelines
