I didn't want to start a thread just to ask a question, so this seems to be the place to ask it. If Pelicans end up with a better record than the Lakers but both end up as lottery teams, would the Pelicans have to declare that they're taking the Lakers' better odds BEFORE the actual lottery takes place, or would they be allowed to wait and see who gets the higher pick?

They are allowed to wait and see where them and the Lakers pick.

Which cap plan (2022/23 season trade deadline VS 2023/24 offseason) would you go with

Russ / PatB / SkyWalker / Nunn (expiring deals) aggregate to potentially trade for an incoming ~90m in incoming salary aka “cap space” occupied by those incoming deals

VS

Renouncing all our FA bird rights (those dudes mentioned above + TB & TBJr + Gabriel + Schro + JTA) for 26.2m - 36.8m in potential cap space next summer

Projected 2023/24 Offseason Laker Cap Sheet on a 134m Salary Cap
1. Bron 46.9m (ie 35% max based off 134m cap)
2. AD 40.6m
3. Damien (player option) 2.6m
4. MaxC 1.7m
5. 2023 1st pick swap w/NO ~3m (based on pick falling between #20-30)
6. Reaves RFA QO 2.1m (could be 6.3m if he meets “starter criteria”)
*7-12. 6 incomplete roster (IR) charges 6.6m, if we intend to use cap space
= 103.5m - 107.2m in team salary
= 26.2m - 30.5m in cap space (if we renounce all our UFAs)
= 32m in cap space (if Damien opts out & is renounced as an UFA while Reaves does not meet “starter criteria”)
= **35.5m in cap space (if we purge everyone except for Bron & AD)

*Note: we have two 2nd round picks in 2023, but they do not place cap holds like 1st round picks do; if both those players make it to the roster, they likely will both start at 1.1m rookie min deals, which is the same amount as an IR charge. So they are still accounted for in the projections above.

**Note: if the cap trend continues (and it most likely will), the cap will finally come to rest at 136m and if that occurs, Bron’s max extension number will be 47.6m. So in that regard, if we purge everybody except for Bron and AD (ie + 10 IR charges), the most cap space we can offer to a single FA next summer is 36.8m, which is about 11m short of a 35% max player (ie. 47.6m), 4m short of a 30% max player (40.8m) and about 3m more than what a 25% max player could get (ie 34m).

Also something to note: if we go into next summer angling to use room under the salary cap to sign (or trade ie cap space amount + 100k) players to, then we would have to renounce all our FAs to maximize that cap space. However, we can renounce their bird right cap holds and use that space to re-up them to bigger deals than what their bird rights wound have given them. For example, SkyWalker’s 7.8m cap hold means he can earn no more than that if we use his bird rights to have him stay here. However, we can still use whatever cap space we create to resign him to a deal paying him more than what his bird rights would have given him. But whatever cap space we use to ink him to, would lead us to having less of that cap to use towards another FA.

So for example, if we had 30m in cap space, then Walker’s bird caphold will occupy some of that space leaving ~22m to use. We can sign a FA to that amount and keep Walker with his non bird rights to a deal maxed at just under 8m. Or if we want to pay him more, then we renounce his rights and use any portion of the 30m in cap space to re-up him with.

Our UFA cap holds that if not renounced makes us a capped out team:
Russ (full bird) 46.9m
PatB (full bird) 19.5m
Walker IV (non bird) 7.8m
Nunn (early bird) 6.8m
Ryan 2.2m QO (RFA)
TB, TB Jr, JTA, Schro (non bird) 2m each
Gabriel (early bird) 1.9m

Of course after.
