   Chicago's Last Resort Offseason Plan That Still Manages To Avoid Signing Joe Johnson
2010-06-14

Theo Ratliff - The 37 year old Ratliff is still capable of blocking shots, and is no less capable of getting through a season than he ever was. Kind of a backhanded compliment, admittedly.

   The Finances Of The Trade Deadline Deals
2010-02-21

There remain many taxpaying teams this year. As covered earlier this year, 14 teams were scheduled to be taxpayers earlier this year, and it's still a high number. The Lakers had no hope or no intention of getting under it, and retain the league's largest payroll, unable or unwilling to make any deals to shred a small amount off of it. (Not even my Morrison for Hunter special. Boooo.) The Knicks cleared future payroll but did nothing to change this year's, and Dallas, Boston and Cleveland took more 2009/10 salary on. Denver couldn't dump salary without jeopardising their current team, and rightly decided it wasn't worth it. San Antonio tried to dump salary, but couldn't shift anything other than Theo Ratliff's minimum contract (receiving a top 55 protected 2016 pick in the process; i.e. nothing at all). And while Orlando didn't seem to try, they'll have the added benefit of a reduction on Jameer Nelson's salary, as his $500,000 All Star bonus, previously listed as likely, will now no longer be applicable.

(Others with All Star bonus include Gerald Wallace, who will now cost $500,000 more with his earned incentive. Danny Granger did not make the team this year, so he will be listed as $200,000 cheaper next season. And Zach Randolph will be paid $333,333 for finally making the team, as well as shedding the burdensome label of being the highest paid no-time-All Star of all time. That "honour" now goes to Damon Stoudamire, Zach's former teammate and current assistant coach at Memphis.)
