I'm pretty sure I'm not getting it right ?_?

The MLE is usually in the 5.5 mil range give or take. What it's saying is that since the sixers have 11 mil...they don't get the 11 mil AND the 5.5 MLE. Just the 11 mil. Whereas a team that has say 3 mil in cap space gets bumped up to the 5.5 mil. If we had the 11 mil and MLE we'd have like 16.5 mil in cap space...and the league doesn't want that.

Ok, thanks for the clarification :)

Well, in a couple of hours we'll know what's the status on Brand... Hope dies last, though it's on its last breathes as of now.

He has to say that. I'm sure he'll look to see what kind of money LAC will cough up first. If it looks attractive enough, he might stay. If it doesn't he'll give the famous line. "We were moving in a different direction."

Since when has being undersized hurt him? career numbers of...

20.3 ppg
10.2 rpg
2.1 bpg
2.7 apg
50.5 fg%

The injury shouldn't be a worry. He returned for the final 8 games of last season and averaged 18/8/2 which is kind of similar to a training camp for him. He's fine.

yes he is. We have more money that Atlanta would want to actually spend for him. I'm pretty sure we are going to grab J-Smoov.

If Philly could get Brand that would be a HUGE signing. the roster isnt bad and with the addition of brand, it would put this team to contend againts the upper class teams in the east.

I agree with Duhon, he would be a great backup point.
I don't know about Miller he dosen't seem like he really wants to be here. Second he has an expiring contract that and he raised the level of his play last season. I would move him seriously with no hesitation that's why Ed isn't making Miller a priority. I do agree with signing Iggy I want him on this team for sure.

I hope so I know he isn't you traditional back to the basket player. But he is a shot blocking demon and has nice defense. He can also give you some scoring as well. I know most don't care for him but I would take this guy in a heartbeat. Also I keep hearing Atlanta will match any deal for him are they just selling tickets.
