Bingo ... its a Furtue Cap move ...

Luxuary Tax Level is $ 70,307,000 .... Memphis over by $ 4m, ..

this year its $ 1 for every $ 1 over ...

then with the new CBA the rates go up next year. The new tax rate is a sliding scale that charges a team a higher rate for each additional $5 million it exceeds the tax rate.

For the first $5m a team exceeds the tax, it will be charged $ 1.50 per dollar, Tax charge $7.5M... for each dollar between $ 5m and $ 10m, it will be charged $ 1.75 per dollar,

So dump the BIG Contacts NOW ...

WHAT ... five year Plan ????

GM John Hammonds contact is also UP ...

lets see the beginnings was the END .... 2008 traded Yi for Jefferson / sF, then draft a F at 8 pick Joe Alexander, out of the NBA ... tooo slow for 3 too short for 4 vs pick another Center Brooks Lopez to back Up or play along with Bogut at 4 ....

2009 Dump Jefferson on SA .... good move ... Bucks made Playoff, but Bogut goes OUT two weeks b/4 playoffs ...

2010 Corey sF for Snubs Danny G / Bell to GSW ....

2011 Corey to Bobcats for Captain Jack, who Skiles broke to private Jack ... DNP / Coach Bad Decision ... sure put the High pay players on the pine ....

then DUMP IR Bogut & Jackson on GSW for Ellis .... fool me once, but twice GSW ... someone who can play Ellis, for a IR / in the Doghouse and get No 1rd pick from the Bucks ...

Dump players on Houston for Dalembert ... who starts at Center plays 17 min 4.8 rpg 1.3 blocks plugs up the middle on defense in November ... then gets the Scotty treatment ...DNP / CD ... starting in Dec. ... is an Expiring Contact $6.7m ...

Orlando receives the LEAST favorable of Denver own 2014 1st round pick and New York's own 2014 1st round pick via Denver

PHIL own 2015 1st round pick to Orlando two years after Philadelphia satisfies their obligation to convey a 1st round pick to Miami <Top14 Protected in the 2015 Draft, top14 protected in 2016, top11 protected in 2017 and top8 protected in the 2018 Draft.>. If Philadelphia does not send Orlando a first round pick by the 2018 NBA Draft, they Philadelphia shall convey their own 2018 and 2019 second round picks to Orlando. ...

2015 second round draft pick from L.A. Lakers ...
The L.A. Lakers' own 2015 2nd round draft pick to Orlando <Top40 Protected>. If The L.A. Lakers' own 2015 2nd round pick is within the top40 selections, then The L.A. Lakers' obligation to Orlando shall be extinguished. ..

So Orlando got No Name Players and 2nd round pick in 2013, 1st round in 2014, maybe a 1st round in 2015, 2nd round in 2015, and a 1st round in 2017 ...

A cheap roll of the dice for Howard ... 2017 first round draft pick from L.A. Lakers
The L.A. Lakers' own 2017 1st round draft pick to Orlando (Top-5 Protected).

If The L.A. Lakers' own 2017 1st round pick is within the top-5 selections, then the L.A. Lakers will convey their own second round picks in 2017 and 2018 to Orlando.
