Actually, was silentjim's bid of 6.5M (3.25, 3.25) legal at the time? It must have been pretty close to the edge.
I think at the time this bid was made, silentjim had 4.89M in cap space, and was leading the following auctions:
that's 4.5M right there, and there may have been something I missed.
also, he would have been leading the bidding for Jarret Jack at 2.75M if nsink's bid was illegal. I've lost track of what nsink was up to so I'm not sure about this. If nsink's bid on jack was illegal, then silent jim would have been easily over his cap with the Tyrus bid.
man, keeping track of this is a bit of a mission.
I only have 4 roster spots left, so I never had 5 bids open at once.
I have 4.985M in cap space.
I bid .25M on Derek Fisher at 9:34 AM (4.735M Remaining)
I bid .25M on Taj at 9:34 AM (4.485M Remaining)
I bid .25M on Charlie V at 9:36 AM (4.235M Remaining)
Got outbid on Taj at 10:09 AM (4.485M Remaining)
I bid .25M on Thabo Sefolosha at 11:52 AM (4.235M Remaining)
I bid 3.25M on Tyrus Thomas at 1:09 PM (.985M Remaining)
Got outbid on Tyrus Thomas at 2:37 PM by dasein (4.235 Remaining)
I bid .25M on Mario Chalmers at 4:27 PM (3.985M Remaining)
Got outbid on Chalmers at 4:40 PM (4.235 Remaining)
Got outbid on Charlie V at 5:35 PM (4.485 Remaining)
I bid .75M on Chalmers at 6:12 PM (3.735 Remaining)
I bid .9M on Charlie V at 6:15 PM (2.835 Remaining)
At 6:47 PM dasein says his bid on Tyrus wasn't legit, which makes my bid of 3.25 M on Tyrus legit (I therefore go over the cap)
I have to retract my Charlie V bid, which was my last bid at 7:14 PM
I definitely never went over
