Like it. Gilbert is basically writing a $6MM check for a first round pick but whatever, it makes us worse this year and it isn't my money. And I don't think the cap room would have mattered anyway. I'm just disappointed I can't quote this clip at games anymore,

They owed Sessions and Eyenga the $6m for next year anyway. Sessions has player option and Eyenga would have been in last year of that deal.

Gilbert is not wrighting any extra check.

The NBA Salary FLOOR, as in minimum they can spend is $49MM next year. After this trade they sit at.... $32MM

Fucking christ you guys love his dick.

The Cavs HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY THIS YEAR. A LOT.

This is a smart move and kudos to Grant, but fuck giving Gilbert fucking head for it.

Sucks when an owner is capable of enticing people to give him money. Almost like that's what they did to be able to afford a team in the first place. (smoke)

Still rather see Wade and James collide with one blowing out an ACL and one destroying his achilles.

Well... you can't have everything dude. Did little for competitive balance other than compensate the owners who can't be/won't be building super teams.

Some of us figured that out as you may remember.

BTW the change from a 75% floor to 85% floor for this year is a difference in 6 million dollars or 13% of a 58 million dollar cap.

I believe next year is also 85% then it goes to 90%. Of course any difference or amount will probably be plugged with short term (1-2) year deals.

Still an asset is picked up at the expense of meaningless cap space and a guy who walks next year. Oh and Eyenga! OH AND KAPONO"S TAN!

The margin is all that matters. Under the old rules they still had to plug the gap between $32 and 43 million (75%) now they just have to add another 5ish (85%)...

I'm sure they will do it simply.

Thought I read we got the right to swap the Lake show's pick with either of our picks - not just Miami's. <acid>So when Kyree Isn't a Girls Name™ leads the Cavs to the championship next year and the Lakers and Miami are in the lottery we'll be able to have Miami and Lakers picks. </acid>

Walton's expiring contract next year could be useful. Man I liked Kapono when he was here. Always thought that he woulda fit well in the Stand Around and Watch Lebron offense that Brown ran.

Is the floor a 'hard' floor or a 'soft' floor? If it's a soft floor and the Cavs can go under and just pay a penalty then no reason for them to sign overpriced shitballers. ie. 45 mil floor and the Cavs are at 40 then they just throw 5 mil into the bucket to make it even if they can't find a player smart enough to take 5 mil for a one year contract w/o expectations rather than retire.

$6MM players are not nothing and the gap goes up next year.

Christ half of Cleveland just had a breakdown over taking on Walton's $6MM.

Read this topic and thought it was a joke. Finally something I wanted to happen, happened. Christ on a crutch, it's about time. Unfortunately, I do like him as a player. He's consistent, has passion for the game, and I think he might even get a little better. But we've got our PG of the future, and a somewhat legitimate backup PG in Boobie; now we've got an extra pick, and more importantly, trade bait for the offseason.

There really isn't much not to like about this deal. Sessions would have been gone after this season anyways. Eyenga was worthless. Walton and Kapono may or may not suit up here, not that it matters either way. The cap space wouldn't have meant anything, since nobody's coming here anyways. Plus, as ey and others pointed out, it helps us get to the salary floor.

Basically it boils down to Sessions (who we would have lost for nothing) for a 1st round pick. It's one of those rare trades that seems to help both teams accomplish their goals.

The key to the deal IMO, is the unprotected pick swap with the Lakers next year. I think it is a good trade for both teams, when you take each teams situation into consideration. Mike Brown and an aging Laker roster could have us sitting in the lottery in 13. It's not likely, but it is feasible.

It also makes us worse now, and should help us get a better shot at one of them top three picks.

About the money, we ain't making any splashes with any 15-20 million a year player. Hopefully our cap will be eat up by homegrowns.

As with all trades, time will tell, but I love the move atm. Chris Grant is a good one.

Can someone, anyone give me any indication that this isn't a Laker's have the option for the Heat's pick deal. 500 people I saw report it had it that way.

And seriously, NO TEAM WITH KOBE, BYNUM AND PAU EQUIVILANT WILL DRAFT LOWER THAN THE CAVS NEXT YEAR. Possibly the dumbest point made in here since Jared Sullinger is Kevin Love.

This is a nice trade, really. It's cute, small and has some upside for a player that wasn't staying here. The pick swap, no matter which way it goes, is inconsequential.

And Chris Grant still has Jamo on his roster, he only did a third of his job this year.

^^^^^ This

Why?? Fucking....... HOW?! You keep him on this team this year and it becomes obvious what you're thinking. We deal him - lose 1st/2nd best scorer on the team. Miss playoffs. Noone else beyond Kyrie that can really score. Help our chances at a solid draft pick. GREAT.

Keep him - make playoffs (doubtful but possible), and get eliminated promptly. Effing sweet! Fuck ourselves even more in another draft that isn't that thick. TERRIBLE.

Simple business practice: look at the short run and the long run. Weigh the pros and cons of each. Make a decision that reflects thinking. Obviously the Cavs aren't doing this.

From the little I heard from Chris Grant it is the Cavaliers option to swap the 2013 Miami first rounder with the Lakers 2013 first rounder if it benefits us...

All things being equal its prolly a few ticks better. It gets a bit more complicated should the Lakers miss the playoffs this year, that scenario is explained in the video...

I hate Cleveland's free agent practices. They're laughable. All of them. In the last year, the Tribe's done the best w/the free agent market, which I think is a little easier/more doable job in baseball IMO. But that being said, they've done the best.... and they ain't done much.

We can swap the Miami pick for the Lakers pick in 2013. Initial reports were incorrect. Lakers will probably be worse than Miami, I would think. Maybe not by much, but next year's draft may be pretty deep too, or we could grab an international stash-dude. I like this deal.

We can also flip Walton's contract way easier next year than Jamo's this year. Hard to get salaries to line up with $15 mil.

According to Hoopdata, the Lakers are on the hook for about $78 million next year, assuming they exercise Bynum's $16.1 M option.

Kobe $28.9 M
Gasol $19 M
Bynum $16.1 M
Artest/World Peace $7.2 M
Blake $4 M
Odom $2.4M (guaranteed amount)

That's about $78 million for six players. The salary cap this season is $58 million.

They could try to sign Sessions, but in Grant's presser he mentioned that 13 teams will be under the cap next year. I imagine one or more of them will offer Ramon more than the Lakers will be able to.

How do they fill out the rest of their roster? There's a lot of years on the guys they already are commited to.

I'm thinking the Lake Show may go the way of the Celtics this year - decline to a .500 team. Especially since they play in the Western Conference.

If that happens the Cavs' option to stick the Lakers with Miami's 1st round pick in exchange for the Lakers pick may not be insignificant.

Pau + Kobe + Bynum = VASTLY superior to the Celtics core. There is a snowballs chance in hell they are a lottery team.

Holy fuck people, that is two top ten players right now and a top 15-20. You could surround them with Troy Murphy, Derek Fisher, Steve Black, McBob, Kapono and Luke Walton and they would be a solid playoff team.

The only way they decline that far is a major injury.

And hoopdata sucks dick for salaries.

I swear you fuckers wouldn't know an NBA game if it smacked you in the face with its dick.

Bynum is a top 20 player in the NBA? Seriously?

I'm just venturing back into the fray after the long hangover after Ledecision, so its been a while.

Yup, would have been sooner were he healthy, ever.

Think about the centers better then him right now..... then the PFs.....

I'm probably upticking him a bit because he is a center, but that is that.

I still need some help with the traded picks thing. Please correct me if I'm wrong with this at any time. We have the right to switch 1st round picks only with the heat this year or next year. Next year we can switch any pick (even in the second round) with the Laker's first round pick. Isn't that what "least desirable pick" means? Worst pick in the draft?

Also, is there anyway we can end up with all three picks?

To clarify, the Lakers are 27-16, good for 3rd seed if the season ended now. Houston is the 8th seed at 24-20. Not a whole lot of difference between 27-16 and 24-20.

With just a modest decline I can see the Lakers with the 6th-8th seed next year and getting eliminated in the first round. If Miami goes to the Finals the Cavs could be able to swap the 29th or 30th pick for the Lakers' pick, which would be in the 15-22 range. Best case scenario we're swapping the 30 for the 15.

Not earth shattering, but not insignificant, either. I'm just saying we can't assume the Lakers will be drafting 27th or thereabouts.

Kobe will be 34 in his 16th season. He's got to start showing his age at some point. The Lakers don't have a 1st round pick this year. They will be about $20 million over the cap just with the players they're committed to, and that's with 32-year-old Blake as the only point guard. Maybe they can do some finagling and sign Sessions. If not, I think age and lack of a bench will catch up to them and there's a realistic possibility they get knocked out in the first round.

I'm just saying that maybe Grant is anticipating the same thing and that's why he got the swap option included.

Edit:

Odom was traded so if I'm not mistaken, the Lakers will have about $75 million committed to five players: Kobe/Pau/Byum, Steve Blake, and Artest. Assuming the cap will be somewhere around $60 million and they have no first round pick, how do they get two starters and a bench? I'm assuming they pick up Bynum's option and nobody will take Blake's or Artest's contracts off their hands. Oh wait, they have Eyenga.

Never mind.

They use their exceptions dumbfuck.

And again, as long as the Lakers have Kobe - Bynum - Pau THEY WILL NOT BE A FIVE HUNDRED TEAM.

Watch a fucking basketball game.

For a cunt that sits here and writes thousand word essays on the upside of a turd like TT you sure can't identify what one of the two or three most elite cores in the league does.

The swap should be considered to probably be the value of a decent 2nd rounder. That's about what it would cost to move up the probably 5 to 10 spots that we will end up getting (I'm assuming the Lakers will be drafting right around the mid-20s next year. That said, if there is an injury or something, it could easily move us up to the mid-first round. Great upside/ no risk.

We can swap our 1st rounder with Miami this year. This year we own:
1st Cavs
1st Lakers
2nd Cavs
2nd Hornets

Next year we own:
1st Cavs
1st Miami (w/ swap)
2nd Cavs

So in the 2013 draft, we basically own 3 1st round picks, our's, Miami's, and the Lakers. BUT, we HAVE to send on of them to the Lakers. We will send them whatever pick is the worst. So we end up with 2 picks that are the highest of those three, and the Laker's get the lowest.

I forgot, we also have the protected Sacramento pick, but I don't foresee us getting that until 2013 at the very earliest.

Being thorough. No way do we get it this year, because of Sac's record. But next year, it is technically possible.

Its top-13 protected in 2013. Boogie keeps being a beast, high pick this year (currently 5), and trading Reke or Thorton for a real PG...I could see them barely missing the playoffs. Not likely, but if they traded for Rondo (for instance) I could see it happening. Most likely is that we see that pick in '15-'17 when it is only top 10 protected.
