Under the current NBA CBA the Soft Cap is likely to be somewhere Just under $55M. The Warriors already have just under $50M commited to 10 players for next season. This just does not seem to leave any room for signing the "Big" we have all heard they intend to sign. This would mean they would need to do a sign a trade (ala David Lee) to make this add. But just what high dollar contract could we actually trade that we would want to trade? I just do not see any team being kind enough to take Biedrins off our hands in such a trade.
We have also heard that the NBA would like to begin phasing in a Hard Cap with the yet to be bargined new CBA. I am starting to think that the Warriors believe this Hard Cap will eliminate the restrictions of the current Soft Cap and allow them to spend more. If say this Hard Cap were to be set at $65M and there would no longer be a Soft Cap then the Warriors would have $15M to spend signing this much desired "Big".
What say GSOM?
