TJ, like the rest of us at times in the past, you have a lot to learn about the salary cap and CBA.Originally posted by TJ
The Bulls are at 36M right( if the renounce Best and Oakley) so adding 10M would be at 46M which is under 50M. I beleive these nunbers are correct .
You're not making sense. You say that Seattle can take back the max of last year's salary or 50% of new salary. It doesn't follow that the Bulls would have to trade away huge salary to meet this restriction. Perhaps you can re-state your thoughts.Originally posted by NCBullsFan
If Lewis signs for more that 20% of his salary last year (about $5.3M), he becomes a BYC player, which makes it very difficult to trade for him, since Seattle can only take back the maximum of (a) half of his new salary or (b) his last year's salary in trades for him. In order to sign-and-trade him to anything more than about $6M, we would need trade away about our whole roster, in particular Jalen Rose or involve a third team under the cap (good luck getting the Clippers involved).
How?Originally posted by TJ
I do think a sign and trade is possible for the Bulls & Sonics on Lewis, and it would not involve a 3rd team.
Thanks Sicky for all of the specific posts on this issue. You are absolutely great on doing that.Originally posted by Nater

If renounced Oakley, Best, AND ALL OF OUR EXCEPTIONS, then I think we would be only about $3M under the cap. Lewis would still be a BYC player, since Seattle is over the salary cap.Originally posted by Nater
Ok, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification.
What if we renounce Oakley and Best? Then we're under the cap... so BYC issues no longer apply. Is that correct?
