Pricing Beno

Lots of talk today concerning our ability to re-sign Beno next year. Based on TZ's post and if Ron does not opt out, there would be about $4 million available for Beno, and that's with us carrying only 13 players.

Is $4 million reasonable? Not if you look at starting point guard salaries across the NBA.

Let's throw out the veterans. Guys like Bibby, Kidd, Marbury, etc. These guys are all getting paid on their "big" contracts and that really does not apply to Beno. Let's also throw out the guys still working on their rookie deals (Paul, D.Williams, Felton, etc.) and focus in on the guys working on their first non-rookie contract. Here is what these guys are scheduled to make next year (priced by millions):

$7.8m  - Devin Harris
$10.0m - Kirk Hinrich
$4.9m  - Rafer Alston
$5.8m  - Shaun Livingston
$8.4m  - Mo Williams
$5.6m  - Jameer Nelson
$6.2m  - Earl Watson
$8.0m  - T.J. Ford
$6.8m  - Jamaal Tinsley
The average for these guys is $7.1 million per year. And Beno would probably fit somewhere in the middle of this list.

My spidey sense tells me that $4 million won't get it done. Something else will have to give.
