We've had a busy 48 hours. Hopefully things slow down soon. Just a short recap though: we drafted a dude, traded for a dude, extended team options on two other dudes, *and sent the qualifying offer to a fifth dude* (Sorry, forgot this one). We're at 14 people right now.

One would assume that there are a few moves to be made still. Specifically -- Harris/Williams dynamic needs to be fixed. There are rumbles out of Harris' camp that, hey, maybe he doesn't want competition on this team. Additionally, we have to do something about Bell, as in the exit interviews he seemed to have 'communicated' a similar point of view. Of course, the Utah Jazz do not make it policy to air out dirty laundry (we're not the tell all book writing Lakers, after all). But there appear to be more moves that will happen. Especially when you add up all those numbers and you get a value of $63, 768, 803. Which is more than we'd want to spend. I still don't get the deal with Williams' contract (the exception for a trade doesn't invalidate his cap effect, just his "contract+1.25x value" for trade equity, right?). And Evans may end up signing a more expensive tender. And I don't understand how much money Murphy can ask for. Of course, we'll keep you posted here at SLC Dunk.

Shut up.
