The amount of cap room teams will actually have, updated, again
July 8th, 2010
This is an update of the update of the earlier post that detailed the amount of cap room teams will have. It is updated to reflect everything that happened at the draft, including, in the case of the Kirk Hinrich trade, things that haven’t happened that soon will.

Preview Sort Of Thing: Sacramento Kings
October 20th, 2008

This explains what happened with last year’s “30 teams in 30 or so days” series of predictions, where I started well, …
