He seems like such a good dude.
Thanks much for the post! I hadn't seen this, and appreciate it.
NO has been knocking it out of the park with these players he's getting. Here's another intelligent, well spoken dude that loves playing here. I wanted Kanter more, but I'm SO happy we got Hood, and love how he talks about the team. Sooner or later, all those NBA "Stars" are gonna want to come here. By then, we probably wont even need them. Hopefully.... Lol
Just saw that, love that guy !
I love Hood. He’s been in a lot of deep playoff runs.
Next summer we are gonna be able to give Hood a better contract, I’m thinking like a 4/40-50.
Maybe that was why he resigned here for less? He will actually get more in the long run.
Spotrac has him as being signed with the non-bird exception for 120% of his previous contract, so our TP-MLE of around 5.7 mil is still intact. So Woj's 2yrs/ 16 mil was correct and not Quick. We have 13 guys on roster at the moment.
What’s the non-bird exception?
Spotrac is incorrect. His non-bird exception was only worth 4.16M; it could not have been used to sign him for the value they listed.
NON-BIRD EXCEPTION -- This is also a component of the Veteran Free Agent exception. Its name is somewhat of a misnomer, since Non-Bird really is a form of Bird rights. Players who qualify for this exception are called "Non-Qualifying Veteran Free Agents" in the CBA. They are veteran free agents who are neither Qualifying Veteran Free Agents nor Early Qualifying Veteran Free Agents, and include the following:
Players who finished the season with a given team, who have played no more than one season without clearing waivers or changing teams as a free agent.
Players who were Early Bird free agents, but whose team renounced its right to use the Early Bird exception to re-sign the player.
Players who were to be Larry Bird or Early Bird free agents, were playing on one-year contracts, and were traded mid-season.
This exception allows a team to re-sign its own free agent to a salary starting at up to 120% of his salary in the previous season (not over the maximum salary, of course), 120% of the minimum salary, or the amount needed to tender a qualifying offer (if the player is a restricted free agent -- see question number 42), whichever is greater. Raises are limited to 5% of the salary in the first year of the contract, and contracts are limited to four seasons when this exception is used.
A partial season counts as a full season for the tenure calculation related to Bird rights. If a team signs another team's free agent to a Rest-of-Season contract mid-way through the season, then at the end of that season the player is a non-Bird free agent.
Starting January 10 of each season, this exception begins to reduce in value. See question number 26 for details
Was it not 6.5 mil *120%?
No--Hood only made just shy of 3.5M last year.
Is it possible Hood's contract is only for 4 mil/yr?
We've not seen any reports of that nature. The other factor to consider is the idea that Kanter was given a timeline to make a decision on an MLE offer. If we were re-signing Hood via any method other than the MLE, then there would not have been any need to put that kind of restriction on Kanter.
Little did you know........ He's got shooters!!!!!
Guess who was #1 in the NBA in rebounds per 36 minutes last season? Hassan Whiteside.
https://www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_2019_per_minute.html (click on the TRB column to sort by total rebounds)
And in 2015-2016 when he played 32 minutes per game he led the NBA in rebounds per game at 14.
Addition: Looking at last season, HW had games of 24 rebounds x 1, 23 x 1 , 20 x 3 and so on.
He had 21 games of 14 or more rebounds.
So...he's excited about having shooters because he's tired of getting so many rebounds?
Unless Rodney Hood becomes a knockdown shooter, it could be the same old story for the Blazers
