I also took in to account who had MLE $ and that from the MLE thread and then assumed MLE resets at the end of the season, so the teams over the cap this summer, would then have a fresh MLE to work with.
It definitely isn't perfect now, because of trades and signings that have happened in the past few days, and it probably wasn't perfect when I published it.
I am so confused by this post. This spreadsheet shows the availability of cap space as of right now, not for the summer.
There's two sheets. The first demonstrates the available teams and max deals that could have been offered at the time Lance was released. The second sheet demonstrates the available teams and max deals that could have been offered if he were an off-season free agent and with the new cap and no team or player options were declined.
The cap space for this summer on the second sheet is more theoretical. If no one declines an option, neither team nor player, and the cap increases to the real life number of 65 million. In any sense, I thought it would be nice for teams to look at and see what they had at that point in time.
But, you could be right. I could have majorly fucked it up how I published it. Never published anything via google docs. I'd bet on me being wrong and you being right rather than you not noticing a second sheet because I never use google docs and when I don't have coffee and don't sleep I tend to fuck things up a lot in excel and I didn't double check this like I would for work.
Nope, you're completely right, I'm an idiot lol - didn't notice the second sheet.
Damn - OKCs got Boogie on that CHEAP contract. I was surprised to see them with so much space next year.
No mater how questionable or unrealistic Colangelo's decision was, it's done with so it's not really worth debating over it.
I do agree though taking the 1 year contract would have made the most sense. Taking a 1 year deal with POR/DEN/MIA/CHI etc. and going for a ring, and then in the off-season he could have made this same deal with the Jazz or another team for the same or more money.
