salary cap league Am i being retarded

Postby bujfan2030 » Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:39 pm

18 team H2H 9cat league. Roster 18, start 12, weekly lineups. 100 million cap. 2 Round Rookie Draft. 4 Round Free agent draft.We use actual NBA salaries except for the WW where we bid on players.(minimum bid 500k). Players can be waived for 50% of their salary. I'm in tank mode and trading away players for picks, but guys are extremely reluctant to part with 1rst rounders. Because we all know every player in next year's draft will be an all-star :*)
Anyway, I'm considering taking on Joe Johnson's Contract in return for Olynyk and a 1rst round pick. :-b This might be the retarded part

Roster(#'s in red are team options)
Rondo- 12 million, 13m
George Hill- 8m, 8m, 8m, 8m
Jimmy Butler- 1.1m, 2.1m
Avery Bradley- 2m
Dirk Nowitzki- 22.7m
Tim Duncan- 10.3m, 10.3m
Jae Crowder- .7m,.9m
Draymond Green- .7m, .9m
JJ Barea- 5m, 5.5m
Andrew Nicholson- 1.4m, 1.5m, 2.3m
Doron Lamb-1.7m, 1.9m
Mirza Teletovic- 3.2m, 3.3m
Anthony Bennett- 5.3m, 5.5m, 5.8m, 7.3m
Tony Snell- 1.4, 1.4m, 1.5m
Solomon Hill- 1.3m, 1.3m, 1.4m
13 million in waived salary

This puts me at 90.7m for this season with 2 Free agent picks to go. these are likely to be borderline WW guys.
Anyway I offered Dirk's Expiring/Avery Bradley/5m in Cash to help him get under the cap for Johnson/Olynyk/1rst round in 2014
He keeps insisting i take on Cole Aldrich as well(3.2m this year, 4,2 next)in lieu of the cash. Even if i waive Johnson which is likely, that's 11.5m and 12m in waived salary after this year. Am i crazy to refuse anymore future salary beyond johnson. Feels like I've already bent over backwards to make this deal work. And it feels like he's taking my willingness to take on Johnson as weakness.

So we ended up making the deal without Aldrich I just had to give up Dirk, Avery and 3m in cash.
