Question about MLE-
What are the rules for using the Mid-Level Exception in new CBA?
— Since Rush is our own free-agent, doesn't he NOT count against it? Warriors Salarieis Without Rush we are at 55.4 mil. The cap will be 58 mil. Just signing all our draft picks puts us at atleast 58 mil. By the old CBA, we could re-sign Rush to whatever deal we wanted, and assuming we didn't hit the luxury threshold (approximately 2 mil less than tax at 70 mil), we could also use a full MLE (now 5 years/22 mil. Is that still the case? We don't necessarily NEED to keep the wing depth, but assuming someone doesn't offer an insane amount to Rush, I'd like to keep him, and see if we can turn Dorell or RJ (Dorell more likely) + maybe our Spurs pick into a back up big man we need.
