As part of getting the cap in the first place, the full MLE has to be renounced. You can't then go over the cap and then get a full MLE (b/c you renounced it).


Didn't Houston start this season under the cap before acquiring minimum salary players to qualify for the full MLE? Where are you reading that the exception has to be "renounced"?

Go over the cap and you can’t sign FAs other than the MLE.

Check Larry's blog. The whole point is that teams can't have both the benefits of cap space AND avail themselves of a full MLE too. Double windfall.

He did participate in some drills and shooting, so it doesn't look like it's gonna be a issue, hopefully this is just the Lakers trying to be more smart and looking at the big picture.

Thats what im hoping for as well.. its preseason and theyre giving Lopez more time to fully recover instead of putting his at risk.

His issue is back spasm correct peeps ?

It's minor, so no big deal. Trudell said he looked good today, so I think he can ply Saturday but they don't want him to, so he can be more healthy for the 82 game season.

Lopez fully participated in practice today...

If he plays tomorrow, it probably will be for 10-12M.

I'm actually excited to see Zu possibly redeem himself a bit. He was poor in SL but with TC and playing with Ingram, Zo, and Randle in the same lineup may give him his confidence back.

Lopez, Ingram and Bogut should play on Sunday!

If it ends up working, Ball can end up averaging 12-13APG, and I don’t think that’s fantasy, we haven’t had a elite offensive big man since Pau and if Lopez is hitting jumpers off of assists by Lonzo, he’s gonna be upping his assist usage at a high rate.
