    Is that even possible now, or would it be a handshake deal?

    Would rather have kmart. His contract is really good for his production. He would be a great 6th man on this team.

    Can you imagine Martin here? All those kick outs from Dwight. He can get to the line too and hit them at an elite level.

    FWIW, for those worried about his 3p shooting, he has actually been a decent corner 3 point shooter for awhile.

    Question is whether you can coach him towards that to make him a respectable offensive threat. Considering he's 28 and has played under Adelman and Karl, both guys known for squeezing lots of offensive performance out of their guys, I'm gonna go with probably not. But it's possible.

    I don't see what would be that hard to coach. If you shoot from here you're gonna have a good time, If you shoot from there, you're gonna have a bad time.

    And what are we here to do....

    You can send players to the other team, but you can't use the salary to get a player with higher salary in return. For example, you can't get a player with a salary of $4.5 million by adding a player with a salary of, let's say, $1.5 million to your $3.7 million TPE. You're allowed to include the $1.5 million player in the trade though.
    I hope everything is clear now. :)

    well, you'd think so, but some players are just insistent on playing really stupid I guess.

    If that is possible then the Rockets are the ones asking for it for sure.

    So if we acquire him using the TPE, can we package him with other players later on to match a larger contract or would that be illegal? Would be a nice loophole if Morey's targeting someone with a contract too large for the TPE on it's own.

    Canaan
    Terry
    Brewer
    Papanikolaou
    DMo

    Starting to look like a legit bench. The real question is if we trade for Brewer using the TPE, who gets cut? Garcia makes the most sense.

    Yes, he could be included in a larger package deal in which you aggregate salaries two months after the initial trade (but not before). It's the same rule for every player as long as he wasn't acquired using cap room, there's no special rule for the TPE.

    I guess we can stick a fork in Garcia.
