Wow he be couldn't have done that with us
That's a cheap deal. Guess Cousins is staying.
So who has space to sign cousins now?
Who signs Cousins now?
Honestly what a weird turn of events.
Does this mean they don't have enough cap left for Boogie? Boogie to LA?
9M deal for Rondo and 9m per Jules deal (with a player option)....maybe this hasn't been announced as a s&t deal yet fellas....stay tuned.
Pelicans can sign him I think?
That was FAST. Means it was already in their plans, but they didn’t execute because they knew we’d match. That’s why the renouncing. Randle wanted OUT. If that’s the case, bye, we’ll be fine.
He's going to do wonders over there. Glad Randle is in a good spot. And with the Player Option after next year and even though I doubt it could maybe be back with us.
But I think that is just wishful thinking on my part.
this is all mintz...la couldve easuly given randle that deal....it wouldn't be difficult for 9mill hit for leonard chase
does that do anything for us cap wise?
Mints must have a grudge against the Lakers or when Pelinka was an agent.
I have a feeling the grudge comes from Lebron coming to LA. A year ago, Mintz’s plan was probably to pair a bunch of his clients as Lakers (PG, Randle, D’Angelo).... but it came off with a rough start when we traded D’Angelo and then Randle went through the entire season knowing he would “only” stay a Laker if we strike out on LeBron.
It seems all so spiteful.
2yrs 18mil pelicans
Hes gone to pelicans
Damn he signed for only 9 mil a year, couldn't we have done that?
No, he (and clearly Mintz) wanted out. If he wanted to do that here it would have been done already.
So Pels are at 112M which gives them 19M in space before they hit the apron (131m).
Since they're capped they can't sign Jules outright with cap space. So that means they must have renounced Boogie's bird rights to do so. And if they did, they gains the nontaxpayer MLE of 8.8m (which would be about 18m over 2 years).
They were capped and they signed Elfrid Payton to 2.7m. A couple things here...maybe they reported this wrong and its a 2.4m vet exception or its accurately reported at 2.7m and the Pels used the Bi-Annual exception (BAE) to sign him. If that latter is what happened, then NOP is hard capped at the apron.
So if they're signing Boogie, then they can't pay him more than 19M since that would make them hit the apron and it would violate the signing.
Essentially with Payton/Jules, the Pels flipped the bird to Boogie.
I hope it includes Boogie!
