I've been so upset about the firing of Lionel Hollins, the salary cap issue took a backseat. Probably because the coach's salary really has nothing  to do with the latter. The fact that they won't resign   the coach has more to do with the overall financial health of the team. Than anything else. If they work within the parameters, All teams in the league make money. Last year the Grizzlies had the most successful season in the franchise's history. Yet they only made $5M.  That's even after trading Rudy Gay.  If they had kept him and gave Coach Hollns a raise. They could have easily come out in the red. With Robert Pera being personally responsible for all debt. This FO doesn't intend to pay any excess taxes. Plus keep team operational costs at a minimum.

The days of all these huge contracts are over. The last player walkout took care of that. With the way the rules are set up now. The only one that can make the big dollars in the near future is Lebron James. A player like him comes along every twenty years. And we have about ten years left. With the new stipulations Marc Gasol will be one of highest paid players in the league. We have seen our last Gilbert Arenas or Rashard Lewis. Teams are no longer being held hostage by these high priced duds. If you aren't a first  round lottery pick or a proven free agent. You'll  end up playing for the minimum.

Each team has between 14 and 16  players on the roster. That averages out to  3.5 to  $4M for each player under the salary cap rules. I don't understand all the rules surrounding the exceptions. But you end up with thirteen active players and the average salary in the NBA being $5.3M. That means a high dollar player takes up 3 to 4 player slots.  In spite of being a small market team. Before the trade the Grizzlies had one of the highest payrolls in the league. Mike Conley takes up three slots and Marc Gasol four. That only leaves liike $12M to pay the rest of the team. Tayshaun Prince and Tony Allen take up ten. That only leaves a couple million dollars. Durrell Arthur gets all of that. All the other players are either making the minimum or on their rookie contract. Management already talked to Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. But they haven't spoken with Zach. That's  the only supply that hasn't been tapped yet. With the way things have been going. He might get traded. He is equity.
