Until I get the salary listing complete at the top of the forum, amongst other projects, here are some ideas and links. Larry Coon's Salary Cap FAQ NBA Salary Cap FAQ Information on First Round Salaries NBA Salary Cap FAQ NBA Player's Association We can gather that the max that Stuckey and Afflalo will make in the first year of their contracts will be $1,308,000 and $787,100 respectively. Normally teams pay their first rounders the max possible. Sammy Mejia and Cheikh Samb (should he sign this year) would be looking at a minimum contract deal, starting at $427,163. Chauncey Billups "max" deal would start at $17,437,000 with 10.5% raises over the previous year. This is the MAX we could pay him. Year 1 - $17,437,000.00 Year 2 - $19,267,885.00 Year 3 - $21,291,012.93 Year 4 - $23,526,569.28 Year 5 - $25,996,859.06 Year 6 - $28,726,529.26 Total - $136,245,855.52 We must tender a qualifying offer of $999,947.20 to Alex Acker to retain his rights. That had to be done by June 30. As usual, our local beat writers are asleep at the wheel, or we would know if that happened. We can re-sign Chris Webber to a contract starting at no less than $1,219,590, but we can raise the start point to $1,463,508 without touching the Mid Level Exception. Under that circumstance, the best deal Webber could sign is 5 years with 8% raises between years. We do have the Mid-Level Exception (approx. $5.6 million) to shop for Free Agents. We do not have the Bi-Annual Exception (or LLE) as we spent it last year on Flip Murray and it can only be used once every two years. If you have questions, please post them.
