Who is Marc Jackson? His name seems to be mentioned as a possibility.

Hollinger and ESPN are freakin' morons from what I can tell. Their trade machine has our payroll currently at $52,875,736 but I added up their numbers and it comes out to $50,605,127. That said, Hollinger is even more wrong than the trade machine. From my calculations, we have $7 mil in cap space b/c G-Dub's contract is back loaded and it's only 7.5 mil next year, not the avg of 9.5 mil. If we can get $900k from May's injury, that's around 8 mil.

Anyways, that should be enough for just about any big man we want. imo, it might be good idea to go after Varejo (still a restricted free agent) or maybe a older, big ol bruiser. No matter what, we need to get a big man BADLY.

marc jackson is a solid big... I like the idea of "overpaying" varejao so the Cavs have to let him go... he may not be worth the money now but in a couple years after he progresses he very well maybe what we've needed. anyone is better than Primoz tho

AV is a pretty good rebounder. His 6.7 rpg in 23.8 mpg comes to 9.0 rpg in 32 mpg. He also seems like a good guy to fit into a running system (same height as Okafor but about 15 lbs lighter, pre-10 lb loss by Okafor, so 5 lbs lighter now). He is also 25, which fits in very well on our young team.

However, he doesn't do too much else well and I remember thinking he was an idiot in the Finals when he kept taking shots instead of giving it to LeBron. It might be hard for him to pass to G-Dub or JRich if he can't pass to LeBron.

I've always been ambivalent about AV but if he comes into the Cats environment with their camaraderie and now upgraded coaching then he may just blossom. I'm willing to give him a chance. It's amazing how one's environment can affect a person, either negatively or positively.

It's amazing how many names we bring out of the woo-works when May goes down even though most of us didn't think May would play much this season.

It's called desperation.

Heh!

THB thing is we don't KNOW as the org. doesn't release contract numbers. Coach V did bring up the cap as being relevant, so they're certainly thinking about it.

Regardless, there really isn't anything to spend it on in FA other than AV...and I'm very against throwing him 11 million bucks per year.

I don’t think we really need (another big man) right now, judging by what we have in camp. Our big guys are doing a really good job. We have a lot of young guys that will be able to step in, and with the way Sam wants to play with our up-and-down tempo, we’ll be alright with the big guys that we have right now.

Ah Crash...ya gotta love him. And in a way he IS right; compared to last year's run of .500 ball we didn't have May, and we've added JRich and 2 rookie PFs while losing only Jake. We should be even better...or at least as good.

If we can get an injury exception (no guarantee there either) I think we will pick up Jackson; if not I bet we stand pat. The longer we can wait til the trade deadline (if that's our intent) the better the deals will be.

Anderson Varejao has been polluted by his agent. He's been puffed up to think he's a top-tier forward in this league when he's really not. Last I read he wants a contract for 65 million and that was called a bargain by his agent. I don't want another huge contract in here.

AV doesn't want $11 mil a year, does he? Apparently, he has been looking overseas and the Cavs likely won't match an offer b/c they are over the luxury tax and a $8 mil salary really costs them $16 mil.

I say we go after him and pay him $6-7 mil if that is higher than the Cavs offer. (I can't find what the Cavs offer is)

From what I've read the Cavs have already offered a little over 6 million and AV declined.

I'd guess we'd have to offer at least eight million...maybe even more to keep the Cavs from matching. I don't think we have that clear.
