Am I correct in reading those protections on the pick as completely unaffected by when the pick is first available to be sent? E.g., if the pick to Denver (via Cleveland) ends up being completed in 2017, do the 2017-18 protections on this Boston pick just disappear or does the whole thing slide back two years, making the 2017 protections become 2019 protections?
Since the militarized police was supplied by the federal government, the response is certainly of national interest. I'm glad my Congressman is working in DC to help amplify the voices who are calling for reconsideration of the federal policies that got us to this point. Bringing it back to the local budgetary issues, I'd be curious to know how much local agencies spend to store, maintain, and train officers to use the 173 assault rifles, 5 pistols, and 3 grenade launchers that the federal government has provided forces in Shelby County (per http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/08…).
Proud to support Cohen for another campaign! Keep Goin' with Cohen.
I've seen no indication that the team will seek an exception for QPon. The constraint that matters, though, is the luxury tax which is unaffected by that type of exception (see reports about the Nets for details). The Griz can't afford to go over that line because it would mean that they wouldn't be eligible to receive payouts from other teams like the Nets from the luxury tax pool. I'd expect the team to be active in seeking out options for the 3rd PG but at minimum-level salaries.
Hayward is going to cost a LOT, assuming his gamble pays off. http://nba.si.com/2013/10/21/utah-jazz-gor…
As always, excellent analysis. Should I read Green and Reed's lack of mention to mean that they'll never see the court in Memphis?
