i accept. leaves me once again without a center, but the deal gives me some safety... though there is only one 7-6 feet tall, 29 year old 22-11-2 center on the planet i have to move him after gettin him, cuz with my high salary cap, Sacramento gets the advantage on Yao...i hope headcase beasley can focus more on playing BB in the future (although Miami moved him only for a 2nd rounder i think he is worth more)...Bibby is not very popular, but is a great sim player, but i already have 3 PGs with Arenas, Williams and Livingston...josh smith will fight with kevin martin for a starting spot...Odom and Dirk will start like in the finals at PF and C.

Atlanta ur salary chart is totally out of whack and should prolly be updated prior to this trade. It doesn't reflect Yao or Bibby being on ur squad which adds a TON of salary to ur team...prolly making this trade over the 125% rule...

I accept. We as an organization are looking to win now. This trade basically helps our big men positions out while generally only giving one "valuable" player in our eyes. This trade makes us a playoff team and should help convince the likes of Vince Carter, Stephen Jackson and/or Rajon Rondo to sign with our team. We essentially get three starters and two most likely late draft picks, while only take on an extra 7 mill in cap.
If you go by his current salary chart (which is wrong), even though he's giving up 7mil, he's still over the cap limit. He's sitting at 78,568,695 mil right now (with the correct players, i.e. Bibby and Yao added, Prince dropped). The league cap limit is 65m, even if he drops 7 mil that still leaves him at 71,869,875 which is still over the cap and the 125% rule is in effect.

ill update it...but Sac is like 40 millions under the cap...so its easy for them to absorb the salary and and stay under the cap also after this trade... mine salary doesnt matter in this case (as iam over the cap iam not allowed to receive more then 125% +/- $100,000 back in salary - but well iam even saving money so the trade is ok via the CBA Rules of the NBA)

yeah...in the NBA there is no hard cap (as far as i know the NHL has one though)...the soft cap in the real NBA is around 58M....at D5 its 65M...but the 90M hard cap at D5 is there if u want to resign a player with bird years...(f.e. next year when i resign dirk with the bird years i have to stay under 90M with my offer)
