Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.
Updated view of Bucks' cap w/Monroe opt-in, picks and $99m cap. If Snell re-signs and Hawes opts in, expect follow-on move to avoid tax. pic.twitter.com/GYSgYmZRBR— FrankMadden (@fmaddenNBA) June 24, 2017
Brewhoop mensch, Frank Madden, updated his nifty salary cap visual. It doesn’t look too great for the Bucks! My question to you is, do you think the ownership will be okay with crossing the tax threshold now and in the future as the team goes full steam ahead into becoming competitive in the East, or will they grow stingy and frugal?
Today’s (off)topic: Harry Potter.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone hit bookshelves on this day 20 years ago. Which houses would Bucks players be in? Delly is a Slytherin.
As a general rule, non-basketball topics are permitted in an open thread, provided that they follow the SB Nation Community Guidelines.
