I'm going to predict Oberto gets traded for Matt Bonner.

Can trades be done now?

ticket 76 site http://www.ticket760.com/pages/spursnews.html then click on the "listen live" section to the top right. I think the press conference can be heard there.

I'd love for that to be true, but I have a hard time seeing why Toronto would bail us out like that.

If true then the simple math adds up to about 1 mil per year.

They badly need a big body down low, to keep the pounding on Bosh and Villanueva to a minimum. As much as we disparaged Rasho, he really isn't that expensive for a center that doesn't embarass himself.

So which one is which?

I smell a nickname here. Eric "the stationary bicycle" Williams doesn't sound too good, but Matt "the toaster" Bonner has a nice ring to it!

The Spurs - particularly RC- has a good relationship with Colangelo Jr.
San Anotnio has done Phoenix favors in the past.
Not only that, but Colangelo Jr. thinkgs this is an awesome acquisition for them.
Fills a big defensive need in the middle.

It saves us a bunch of cash, but with Duncan, Parker and Ginobili on the books the Spurs won't be under the salary cap anytime soon.

The cap is based on a fix percentage of league revenue, so as the league makes more money the cap goes up, if the league makes less money the cap goes down. I'd expect it to go up as years go by, but by how much is anyone's guess.

In any event with Tim, Tony & Manu making a combined $35 mil next year, and getting more expensive every year after that by another $3 mil / yr, the chances of the cap growing fast enough to where the Spurs salary suddenly falls below it is extremely unlikely. Realistically the next time teh Spurs will be under the cap will be in the 2010 offseason when Tim and Manu's contracts end. Assuming in the mean time that the Spurs don't sign anyone beyond that to big money deals.

The number I saw on Rosenbaum's CBA site was something like $63 mil or in the ballpark thereof. The lux tax threshold gets set the same way the cap does, some number tied to the revenue that came in.

Diaw may in fact become available in the near future, especially if Amare comes back close to what he was before. Diaw and Marion style of play is similar enough, that the Suns wouldn't worry too much about loosing him if you ask me.

I would think that the Suns would try to trade Marion (since he has a huge contract) so that they could re-sign Diaw in the future.

The Suns do have some big decisions to make, they've also got Barbosa to worry about. But they've still got Diaw locked in on the cheap for another year so they don't have to make a decision right now. I don't think the Suns trade anyone out of their core this year and they make a run at a title next year with this year's crew + Amare and see what happens. After that then they'll start deciding who to keep and who to move.
