I'm sorry Song, perhaps I should have been more specific. Won't happen again :grinning: promise. And you are right about Scott Williams, much too early for that signing.

someone correct me if i am wrong and i know you will!;)

But isn't this a little unusal for JK? Didn't he wait the last few years as long as he could to sign his first round picks so he could make an effort to sign FA? Of course this year we only had 1 pick. So maybe that is why?


It’s a true honor to be part of an organization that every little kid once dreamed about,” said Williams.

OHHHHH that sounds nice. :D

You're right true, it has not been common for the big guy sign rooks this early. Good omen maybe? I think so :yes:

Since we have not renounced Best or Oakley nor our mid-level or million dollar exceptions, we are over the salary cap. Since we are over the salary cap, there is no reason to not sign draft picks immediately. In the past, we were able to save a little bit of salary cap room by delaying when we signed our draft picks. So it really has nothing to do with JWill.

NCBullsfan is right. Until a first round pick is signed, he counts at 80% of the rookie signing guidelines, the minimum, typically, first rounders sign at 120% of the index, so it does allow extra wiggle room for free agents before you sign your pick. This year we will be using the exceptions, so it is not a factor.
