They're dumb. 

Nah but fr they just didnt wanna pay Trae, so instead they traded him for an older OT with a higher cap hit on his last year who missed 10 games last year.

Brilliant move. Speed cams injury rate and cause them to further tank,,,, I mean rebuild

Well that trade makes zero sense for a rebuilding team.

An expiring contract in a ‘rebuild’ year...their owner is probably just trying the NBA rebuild model #trusttheprocess type ish. Surprised more teams haven’t actively tried it, catch a year with a high draft pick and a stupid amount of cap and blow the load trying to build a team in one year.

You guys don’t understand how trades and salary work. I also see this issue in everyone’s mock off seasons...

When you trade a player, the team that is trading him, still picks up his guaranteed money / pro rated bonuses on their cap. You cannot trade a player to swap out to a lower salary on a player from a different team.

Example: if Falcons traded Trufant today, they would be on the hook for $10.2 mil of his salary in 2020 regardless of who they bring in...they would save about $4m of un guaranteed money...but if they picked up a player, they would be on the hook for any unguaranteed money that is salary that the player earns throughout the year.

The Panthers are eating 9 mil to trade Trae and then have to also take on okungs salary as well. No idea how this makes sense for a rebuilding team.

Ok so using this how is this a win for the Panthers? Please enlighten us.

Yeah, if anything that point makes the trade look even worse.

Hold up.

You think trading Sanu for a 2nd was a win for Beli and trading Turner for Okung made sense for the Panthers?

Not trying to pick on you, but that doesn't make any sense dude.

Hang on.... lemme uh... try something...

 

The sky..... is.... blue.... :munch:

They’ll cut him in a few months and gain 13 million in CAP

So what exactly did they get in the trade? It's not like they created cap. We'll have to see the full details of the trade, but if it was a straight up swap, it's highway robbery. I'd have traded actual draft picks for Trai Turner. It doesn't make sense.
