NEW QUESTION about Semi and Carsen's fifth year cap hold:
I think both have similar contract situations: both signed with cap space to 4 year not fully guaranteed contracts. At the end of the four years C's have full bird rights and players are UFA. In the summer after the contract expires C's carry a cap hold on their books until new contract is in place or player leaves.
Do I have everything right so far?
My question is what the cap hold amount should be?
In reading Larry Coon's FAQ #37 (see chart) both players are Bird Rights players , not coming off a 1st rd rookie scale contract, making less than average salary and therefore both cap holds would be 190% of previous salary.
The amounts that websites (i.e. Basketball Insiders, Keith Smith's spreadsheets) show for cap hold is the estimated 2 year vet min for the coming year in question (per Real GM 1,856,061 for Semi for 2021 -2022 and 2,046,307 for Carsen two years later), which is considerably less that 190%.
What am I missing?
Thanks in advance!!
