2015 NBA Team-By-Team Salary Cap Snapshots & Future Possibilities
As is the case every offseason, it is seemingly more fun (in some peoples’ minds) to talk about free agency movement, the Draft and the future in general, instead of the playoffs, but it is prudent to look forward at all times if you are a general manager or personnel director. We will not know what the salary cap ceiling will be (projected to be around $67.1 million), the luxury tax (approximately $81 million, and apron (which is a projected to be a few million more than the luxury tax threshold). Once these figures are pinned down — following the league office moratorium on trades, and the financial budget settings on July 10 — we will know for sure what the limits for each the salary cap, luxury tax threshold and apron amounts. For now, I will give you snapshots of each team’s cap situation heading into the summer of 2015 and going forward for the next four years. All current contracts that expire (excluding buyouts and other extenuating circumstances) in a given year are up June 30 annually. Keep this in mind when it comes to opt-out clauses and movement of certain targeted players.
* – The 2015 NBA Draft is Thursday, June 25, 2015.
Atlanta Hawks (60-22, Lost in Eastern Conference Finals).
The Hawks are in a very good position, as opposed to this time last year, when they were perceived to still be in NBA purgatory. They catapulted to the top of the NBA standings in the Eastern Conference, and held on late, as they lost Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic to injury due to a bizarre fight in New York City as the regular season concluded. The Hawks are projected to be about $24 million under the cap once existing contracts expire on June 30, however one of those expiring contracts is that of Paul Millsap, who is pivotal to their success. Atlanta has Al Horford locked in for one more season, Jeff Teague, Thabo Sefolosha, Kyle Korver and Mike Scott locked in for two more. Budding talent Dennis Schroder came into his own as the season wore on, and is still on his rookie deal. The three major questions are what will the Hawks do with Millsap and DeMarre Carroll (also expiring), do they target a move up in the 2015 Draft to select a big man who can score, and how much is Paul Millsap worth going forward. They have the cap space to retain their expiring guys, but the Hawks obviously need a go-to scorer at the ends of games, as none of the aforementioned are adept in that role, as was proven in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Boston Celtics (40-42, Lost in First Round).
Developing talent is Brad Stevens’ strong point, and he indeed took a rag-tag bunch of players, amid several in-season trades, to the 8th seed in the 2015 NBA Playoffs. However, Boston is not done wheeling and dealing. They are rumored to be in on acquiring Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, and are always active on Draft Night under Danny Ainge’s purview. Boston, like Atlanta, is slated to be approximately $24-$25 million under the cap heading into the new league year. However, six of their 11 players under contract on July 1 are still on their rookie contracts. Most of the rest of their cap is tied to Gerald Wallace (one year remaining at $10.1 million), Avery Bradley ($7.7 million) and Isaiah Thomas ($6.9 million). Brandon Bass, who has seemingly been in Boston since Reggie Lewis was playing, finally gets to test full free agency, as his contract expires next week. Does Boston keep Jae Crowder? And if so, at what price? There is cap space (and assets available) to trade for Cousins, but what direction does Boston go in order to fill out their roster? Expect Boston to be very active during the Draft.
Brooklyn Nets (38-44, Lost in First Round).
The Nets are in cap hell, simply put. Expect Brook Lopez to exercise his player option (who would turn down $16.7 million?), but also expect the Nets to be proactive in dealing him, even as early as Draft Night. In shedding Lopez’ contract, the Nets still do not gain much cap flexibility. Joe Johnson is (finally) entering the last of the ridiculous contract that Atlanta signed him to, then traded to Brooklyn, at a whopping $24.9 million for 2015-2016. Deron Williams, another woefully overpaid player, is due $21 million next season, with an early termination option on the $22.3 million he is owed the following season.
Yes, the Nets used their amnesty in 2011, so he is not eligible; only a deal similar to what the Knicks did with Amare Stoudemire is possible for the Nets and Williams.
Jarrett Jack was a steal at the mid-level price, but the Nets really do not have much in the way of a team and do not have much money to acquire anyone of value. Given their middling season (they are not in the lottery), they will have to be creative in the 2015 Draft.
Oh, by the way, the Nets got the double whammy in the Joe Johnson trade. They swapped picks with Atlanta in that trade, and the Nets currently do not have a pick before #29 in the 1st Round. Whoops.
Charlotte Hornets (33-49, Did Not Qualify).
Charlotte has been active leading up to the draft, trading Noah Vonleh and relegated-to-coming-off-the-bench Gerald Henderson to Portland, in exchange for sharpshooter/defensive stalwart, Nic Batum. Additionally, Charlotte traded for Jeremy Lamb, sending Luke Ridnour off to Oklahoma City, and reuniting Lamb with Kemba Walker, who was his teammate on the University of Connecticut’s 2011 National Championship team.
That is not enough to build a winning team, however. Charlotte was expected to make “the leap” upon acquiring Lance Stephenson for a relatively cap-friendly deal from Indiana. Stephenson’s entire season was a colossal disaster, and he was traded to Los Angeles to acquire the rights to Matt Barnes’ contract, in order to facilitate their most recent moves. With Stephenson and Henderson’s contracts off the books, the Hornets now possess a bit of cap flexibility (approximately $8 million). Al Jefferson is entering his walk year, and so is Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (whose game has not really expanded much at all since his rookie season). Where does Charlotte go from here? They have Kemba Walker locked up through June 2019, but they have several holes on their roster. Lamb figures to be a starter alongside Walker, while Batum will fill the starting small forward role. They will have to make a decision on Bismack Biyombo, who will be an unrestricted free agent next week, since they traded Vonleh. Additionally, Charlotte possesses the #9 pick in this year’s draft and need that power forward role to be filled in the worst way. Michael Jordan has not been shy about trading up on draft night, so if he feels he can get into the Top 5 and select one of the big men, be on lookout. Charlotte does not have the cap space available to acquire such a player in anything other than a sign-and-trade, otherwise.
Chicago Bulls (50-32, Lost in Eastern Conference Semifinals).
The Bulls’ day of reckoning has arrived. Much like the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL (during the 2014 season) and New York Rangers in the NHL (2014-2015), the Bulls were in win-now-or-else mode. With their early exit from the playoffs, they fired their coach, Tom Thibodeau, and now have to figure out how to re-tool their roster, while paying (potentially) Jimmy Butler, who gets his first taste of free agency this summer. Regardless of Derrick Rose’s health, he is due $41 million over the next two seasons. The fact of the matter is the Bulls have to figure out whether they want to pay Butler — who is sure to command $11-$13 million annually on the open market (or may sign a one year deal in lieu of the cap balloon set to occur for the 2016-2017 season, when TV deals are renewed and the cap figures to go up by 33%) — and thereby limit their ability (or desire?) to pay Joakim Noah, who is now entering his walk year, as well. The Bulls only have 10 players under contract (including Kirk Hinrich, player option) entering the summer, and are precariously close to the cap. They can exercise Bird Rights on Noah, but everything the Bulls do going forward (including the Draft) is based upon what Jimmy Butler decides. The Bulls will look drastically different next season, regardless.
They own the 22nd pick in this year’s draft.
Cleveland Cavaliers (53-29, Lost in NBA Finals).
Cleveland was in ultra win-now mode, with all of the trades and signings that were made before and during this past season. As such, they were well over the salary cap and luxury tax. Because the Cavs did not win the NBA title that they were “all in” for — and their cap structure backs up the assertion that the team was truly all in for a title — there are major decisions to be made. Does Cleveland retain head coach David Blatt? Do LeBron James, Kevin Love (already has), JR Smith (already has), Mike Miller (tied to the hip with James at this point in his career) decide to decline their player options and explore free agency? Only Kyrie Irving, Anderson Varejao, Timofey Mozgov and the hologram of Brendan Haywood are under contract, otherwise. James may opt out and do another one year deal, so that he can gain the absolute maximum deal after the next collective bargaining agreement is pounded out — which, if he remains in Cleveland, would likely be his last major deal — but what will Kevin Love do? Smith is surely going to look to go back to the east coast and seek the most money he can find. Iman Shumpert has not shown that he is worth signing for much more than the rookie deal (which expires next week) for which he was originally signed. The Cavs operated with great aplomb in cultivating a team that they believed would win the title, but it is going to take a Herculean effort to replicate those same types of moves this offseason; regardless of what Love does. James would have to take less money in order for the team to acquire a player like Dwyane Wade (rumored to be pushing to go to Cleveland), and most of the rest of the free agents are looking anywhere but Cleveland.
Cleveland owns the 24th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Dallas Mavericks (50-32, Lost in First Round).
Dallas has been in purgatory since they won the NBA Title in 2011, and if they want to become serious contenders again, while Dirk Nowitzki is still relatively productive, they have to make the right moves this summer. They have been good enough to make the playoffs, but not good enough to be legitimate title contenders. They’ve been middling enough to just make the playoffs, but not bad enough to land a prime draft pick.
Monta Ellis helped them out tremendously by declining his player option, so that he could explore free agency. As such, Dallas maintains about $30 million in cap space, but only have Nowitzki, Chander Parsons, Devin Harris, and alleged NBA player, Raymond Felton, under contract. They could convince Tyson Chandler to take less to return, but Rajon Rondo is almost certainly gone, thereby leaving the Mavs with tons of cap space, the 21st pick in this year’s draft, and hoping that a “hometown sales pitch” will be enough to lure LaMarcus Aldridge back to his hometown. If anyone can do it, Mark Cuban is that guy.
Denver Nuggets (30-52, Did Not Qualify).
No one can truly know what Denver is thinking, so there is not much to write here. There have been rumors about moving Ty Lawson, and they have Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Randy Foye, and several others, whose contracts expire June 30, 2016. As it is, the Nuggets have a little cap space, but Denver is not a free agent destination; particularly when one of the two best players on the team is constantly involved in trade rumors. Denver has done a horrific job in surrounding Lawson and Kennetth Faried with talent. Denver owns the #7 pick in the draft with which to get started on actually putting together a cogent roster.
Detroit Pistons (32-50, Did Not Qualify).
It appeared at one point that Detroit was going to make a playoff push, then they decided to trade Josh Smith (which helped his eventual team, Houston), while alleviating Detroit of some of its cap woes. Additionally, Detroit has been rumored to want Tim Hardaway, Jr. and moving Brandon Jennings, as Stan Van Gundy wants to remake the team in his own vision. Assuming the team is able to move Jennings, while Reggie Jackson is an unrestricted free agent (hereafter labeled “UFA”), along with Greg Monroe, the team will be stripped down completely; with Andre Drummond being the key piece to build around. The Pistons have the #8 pick to get started. Detroit will not be a major free agency destination until they even appear to be playoff contenders again, however.
Golden State Warriors (67-15, NBA Champions).
Golden State was wire to wire the best team in the NBA last season, and have done a remarkable job in setting themselves up for continued success. Stephen Curry (wisely) signed a four year deal that would take him into the season of the expanded salary cap, while they locked in Klay Thompson through 2019. Draymond Green has expressed interest in eschewing signing elsewhere in order to remain part of the core (we’ll see once free agency begins, however). They have Finals MVP Andre Iguodala locked in for two more seasons, and are going to aggressively look to move David Lee and his $15.5 million, soon-to-be-expiring contract. As previously written about Detroit, the Pistons could be a good landing spot for Lee, but Detroit will not likely give up their #8 pick without other compensation from Golden State. The Warriors have the #30 pick in a deep draft, so their main objective is continuity, while they hope that Andrew Bogut can actually play a full season and groom Festus Ezeli.
Houston Rockets (56-26, Lost in Western Conference Finals).
The Rockets are always wheeling and dealing, and while their teams look good on paper, and produce 48-56 wins per season of late, they have not been legitimate Finals contenders. Neither James Harden or Dwight Howard plays great when the other is playing great during the playoffs (at least for more than one game at a time), and their bench is weak — although it outperformed expectations this past season, which is why they advanced to the conference finals. Josh Smith immediately paid dividends for Houston, but with the team being locked in with Smith, Harden and Howard, and only a few other players under contract (and all are entering their walk years), Houston will surely be active on draft night and via free agency and trades, as they were able to finagle the #18 pick in this year’s draft through one of the series of moves they made last season.
Indiana Pacers (38-44, Did Not Qualify).
The Pacers caught a case of the yips down the stretch and folded in the last two games of the regular season, when they had a chance to make the playoffs. On top of it all, David West opted out of the final year of his contract in order to pursue free agency. Roy Hibbert has the option to do the same, and it will be interesting to see what happens with Hibbert going forward with his topsy-turvy nature on the court. Paul George should be ready to go for the start of next season, while George Hill and Ian Mahinmi are also locked in, but the Pacers will have to replace West with about $16 million of cap space (double that, if Hibbert opts out, which he is not expected to do), while they have the 11th pick in the draft.
Los Angeles Clippers (56-26, Lost in Western Conference Semifinals).
Doc Rivers has not done his best work at the helm as general manager of the Clippers. Not only do the Clippers (currently) not own a pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, but they are in a precarious cap situation. DeAndre Jordan can walk via free agency (although if he chose to return, the Clippers could exercise their Bird Rights to exceed the cap in order to retain him), while Chris Paul — who has yet to even come close to sniffing an NBA Finals — and Blake Griffin comprise 2/3 of the Clippers’ cap. It is going to be quite difficult for the Clippers to go beyond what has now become their perceived ceiling: a 55-win team that isn’t deep enough to win a title, with little to no cap flexibility to sign the depth necessary to get them over the top. Their best bet would be a sign and trade of Jordan and attempt to get back a player and a pick in this year’s draft.
Los Angeles Lakers (21-61, Did Not Qualify).
Lakerland was miserable during the 2014-2015 season, with rookie Julius Randle suffering a season-ending injury in his first game, and Kobe Bryant not far behind him with a torn labrum. Bryant earns $25 million next season, in what is said to be his last (who believes him, though?), and LA must decide what they can get for Jordan Hill, who makes $9 million in what will be an expiring contract next summer. Presuming Randle is okay to start the season (and all indications are that he will be), the sudden rumors of a trade for DeMarcus Cousins and making a play for LaMarcus Aldridge are not that far fetched. For now, they’re just rumors, as the Lakers own the #2 pick, which could be a negotiation piece as the draft nears. Expect GM Mitch Kupchak to put forth every effort to stock this team with the requisite players necessary to at least make a solid playoff run in what is at least Kobe Bryant’s last season on his two-year deal.
Memphis Grizzlies (55-27, Lost in Western Conference Semifinals).
Memphis was beset by injuries for most of the season and still won 55 games. They have acquired Matt Barnes in a flurry of moves made in recent days, which further solidifies their defense, but still leaves them in a quandary offensively. The Grizzlies play to wear down teams defensively more than they do to outscore them on a nightly basis with run and gun basketball (although they can do so in spurts).
Memphis will look to retain Marc Gasol, who is a UFA, and unless he takes less money, they will not have much cap space remaining thereafter. This means the #25 pick and a couple of exceptions can be used to sign whatever players they can lure to add depth. Do not expect there to be any falloff from this 55-win team next season.
Miami Heat (37-45, Did Not Qualify).
No one can truly know what is going on in Miami, but if rumors are true, Dwyane Wade’s time on Biscayne Bay may be over. It could just be posturing, however, so draft night will be telling. If the Heat move their #10 pick (where they can still draft a player who will be ready to play on opening night in this deep draft), then you can expect Wade to sign elsewhere, as he is expected to opt out of his contract (as well as Goran Dragic), although this does not necessarily mean that either or both is leaving Miami. As it stands, Luol Deng can also opt out, leaving nothing more than Chris Bosh and an amalgamation of slag remaining on the roster.
Milwaukee Bucks (41-41, Lost in First Round).
The Bucks appeared to have been poised for a 50-win season, before their strange trade of Brandon Knight to Phoenix. They went into a free-fall, but still made the playoffs, which may have thwarted the alleged plans of tanking out of the playoffs. The Bucks always have cap space, as not many players voluntarily opt to sign there, and with the #17 pick in the draft (based upon their finish among playoff teams), they can add a player since Larry Sanders has decided to go AWOL on his NBA career. Jason Kidd was doing a fine job in Milwaukee, and Jabari Parker should be ready to go when the season begins, coming off a major knee injury.
Minnesota Timberwolves (16-66, #1 Pick in 2015 NBA Draft).
All eyes will be on the Wolves in the 2015 NBA Draft, as they own the #1 pick. They have the option to draft Jahlil Okafor, Karl-Anthony Towns or whoever they please, or they could trade out of the spot. It is expected that they will take one of the big men, but beyond that, the Wolves have a nice, young roster to grow together, with Andrew Wiggins getting his feet wet last season, along with Slam Dunk Champion Zach LaVine and others. The Wolves were clearly tanking by midseason, and it worked, as they have better players than their record indicates. Because nearly the entire roster is on their rookie deals (other than Nikola Pekovic and Ricky Rubio), the Wolves maintain cap flexibility, and can even trade one or both players if they can net picks and expiring deals in the process. In other words, expect the Wolves to be very busy over the next 21 days, into and through the initial major wave of free agency, when contracts can be signed on July 10.
New Orleans Pelicans (45-37, Lost in First Round).
Remember all those moves the Pelicans, Heat and Sixers made last year? The result is, the Pelicans have no first round pick in the draft. Their main focus SHOULD BE attempting to trade Eric Gordon (somehow) in the near future (if not on draft night) in order to move into the 1st Round of this year’s draft. Almost all of their cap space is tied to Gordon, Jrue Holiday, Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans and Anthony Davis. They have enough money to sign a couple of players, as well as exceptions available for use, but do they attempt to re-sign Omer Asik (UFA) and move Gordon? These are things to keep an eye on. The team will pick up Anthony Davis’ option for next season, but if they don’t get it right this offseason, he could bolt as a UFA — and everyone knows one or two places that he will be immediately tied to signing with, should that happen.
The firing of Monty Williams may also expedite his departure, in what was a silly and unnecessary move.
New York Knicks (17-65, Did Not Qualify).
The Knicks record is not shocking, with them trotting out 9 D-League players most nights (out of 15 players available), as Team President Phil Jackson successfully moved all of the players who he believed would not fit the system that he seeks to cultivate with the Knicks. As a result, the Knicks are not embarrassingly over the cap for the first time since the cap was installed in the NBA, with over $30 million in available cash to spend. Knicks fans hope that Jackson spends it wisely. Only Carmelo Anthony remains on the roster with any real money on his deal, accounting for 66% of the contract dollars at the moment. The Knicks have an opportunity to be major players in free agency in 2015 and 2016, with the new TV deal/revenue spike that will inflate the salary cap. The team foolishly gave away its 2016 1st Round pick in the Andrea Bargnani trade with Toronto, but they do currently own the #4 pick in this year’s draft. They will have a plethora of options, although the team fully expected to not be lower than #2 in the draft before the lottery results were revealed. Jose Calderon has two years left on his deal, and could be moved in the coming weeks. Shane Larkin has a team option, and it was leaning heavily toward the team declining it for most of the season. Tim Hardaway is on his rookie-scaled deal, and is making mere peanuts (while being involved in trade rumors with Detroit and other teams), and only last year’s 2nd round pick, Cleanthony Early ($845K) and fan-favorite Langston Galloway (same) are under contract at all. Jackson’s first work of gutting undesirable players from the roster is done. Now the draft and two summers of free agency will be the tell-tale sign of whether The Zen Master’s second go-round with the Knicks will result the same way his first ended.
Oklahoma City Thunder (45-37, Did Not Qualify).
The Thunder were hampered by injuries to Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka all season, and still won 45 games in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. Alas, they missed out on the playoffs on the final night of the season, and probably (for their sakes) it was a good thing. They remained in the lottery and will have the #14 pick. They will need it, as they traded away Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte, and have no cap relief in sight for the foreseeable future. Additionally, they will be dealing with Kevin Durant free agency talk all season. Expect the Thunder to make one more run at it with newly signed head coach Billy Donovan, but the team is surely going to look different after the 2015-2016 season, whether Durant stays or leaves (the latter is expected).
Orlando Magic (25-57, Did Not Qualify).
It is easy to scapegoat Jacque Vaughn for the Magic’s failures — which were many — down to his lineup changes and game management, but Orlando has not had a solid, cohesive lineup since they made it to the 2009 NBA Finals. It has been a merry-go-round at shooting guard and small forward every year since, and with that much movement, there cannot be continuity. They have tons of cap space, but with Tobias Harris potentially looking to return home to the New York area, who wants to go there, except someone looking for a payday? They have the #5 pick, Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo to build around, but Orlando is years away from being a serious contender unless there is an unforeseen signing by a big-name free agent.
Philadelphia 76ers (18-64, #3 Pick in 2015 NBA Draft).
This organization is running more like a money laundering operation (like the Tampa Bay Lightning were in their early years) than an NBA franchise. It seems as though the team was stockpiling picks in every trade while dumping every contract it had, in order to strip the team to the absolute core. The problem is, they, in effect, wasted a lottery pick on Michael Carter-Williams and once again hit the reset button. With no logical plan in place, the Sixers’ main plan may be to attempt to block the New York Knicks from drafting the player(s) the Knicks covet in the 2015 NBA Draft. Charles Barkley is spinning in his grave watching this franchise revert to doing what it did when he begged for a trade in 1992.
Phoenix Suns (39-43, Did Not Qualify).
The Suns have played a fun and gun style under Jeff Hornacek, but no one takes them seriously. They made a decent run the previous season, then fell back to 39 wins last season. Phoenix is not a free agency destination right now, and even less so, if they move Eric Bledsoe, as is rumored. They have the 13th pick in the draft this June.
Sacramento Kings (29-53, Did Not Qualify).
The Kings started out well last season, then mysteriously fired Michael Malone, who had garnered the respect of the team’s best player, DeMarcus Cousins. Only later in the season did the Kings (Ty Corbin once again gets the shaft, left to do the dirty work with no talent, as has been the case in every year he has had a head coaching job) sign George Karl, who immediately alienated Cousins and is now looking to pull off a coup to have Cousins traded, against the wishes of the team’s owner, and team VP Vlade Divac (Lawrence Tanter Voice whenever Divac scored as visiting team at the Forum). Despite it all, the Kings own the #6 pick and some cap flexibility, while they are set to move into a new building soon (the main reason the owner does not want to trade Cousins).
San Antonio Spurs (55-27, Lost in First Round).
Despite the early playoff exit, the Spurs will continue to do what they’ve always done on draft night, free agency and other moves, as long as Gregg Popovich is coach and RC Buford is GM. Let’s not waste time here.
Toronto Raptors (49-33, Lost in First Round).
The Raptors are an interesting case. They attempted to trade Kyle Lowry at the trade deadline during the season, and given the way he played down the stretch and in the playoffs, they probably wish they had succeeded, but they have about $20 million cap space to seek to retain Lou Williams, and lure another free agent (DeAndre Jordan? A Jordan Hill trade from Lakers?), along with the 20th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. This team looked to be stout before fading down the stretch, but they can beat anyone if they add the two or three pieces they need. They have the cap space and a decent pick to pull it off.
Utah Jazz (38-44, Did Not Qualify).
Figures as soon as they fire Ty Corbin, Utah decides to spend money for the first time. Granted, it was not a ton of money, nor big name players, but they did little to nothing to arm Corbin with a viable team, and yet he still got the team to the playoffs and nearly into the playoffs, as well, during his tenure. Utah has never been a major free agent locale, so the Jazz have to draft well and come out on the good end of the trades they make. Gordon Hayward’s contract is a bit excessive, but he does produce. They have taken the bait on Derrick Favors’ “potential” (akin to that of Anthony Randolph’s, although Favors has at least produced moderately), but short of the 12th pick in the ’15 Draft, it is going to be tough for the Jazz to improve their roster without creative trades. Long gone are the Frank Layden days where they struck gold in the draft every year from ’83-’88 and got cornerstone/Hall of Fame players.
Washington Wizards (46-36, Lost in Eastern Conference Semifinals).
The Wizards met expectations with what their roster appears on paper (save for a maddening stretch of ineptitude as the season wore down), but with their cap situation $71 million — assuming Paul Pierce picks up his player option — they are pretty much locked in for next season. Armed with the 19th pick in the draft, they can acquire Nene’s successor (Nene has said that once his contract expires he is retiring to go do charity work), but outside of that, the Wizards can only improve via trade. It is more likely that they stand pat with a roster that is very solid, if it remains healthy and does not slide over a 20-game span, which it did during the 2014-2015 season.
REMINDER: The NBA Draft is Thursday, June 25, 2015 at 7 PM.
