    Best and worst case scenario for the 10.3 mil. trade exception

    I guess the worst case would be if we don't use it. The best case could land us a Monroe or a Cousins, both are restricted free agents next year.

    What do you guys think we will, should, could do with the 10.3 mil trade exception?

    Right now the Celts can't use that trade exception because the Celts are hard capped at 75.7m.

    Cousins would have to do something really stupid or dumb for the Kings to let him go.

     

    The Pistons can afford to give Monroe the max next year.

    So I don't think we end up with Monroe either.

     

    And because the Celtic owners are not willing to pay repeater tax, there's very little chance the Celts will use that 10.3m trade exception next year.

    What about next year when Humphries contract is up and Bogans i believe can be waived, won't that free up more money to sign someone. I know we have to do something with AB if he is not traded, but something like 4 years 20 mil would probably lock him up.

    The biggest problem here is that this trade exception can't be combined with salaries in trade.  But, I believe that it can be combined with other trade exceptions.  If that is correct, I will look for Danny to collect more smaller trade exceptions.  Then he can potentially play in the free agent market next year.

    A trade exception can't be combined with anything.

    Not even other trade exceptions.

    Sounds like the trade exception may not be as big a deal as it was first made out to be.

    Suppose we let Hump's contract expire if he's not traded by the deadline. His $ can be used to extend Rondo and the TPE can be used to sign a free agent via the S&T by the team losing the FA. What team wouldn't want a $10MM exception over getting nothing in return for losing their FA? So in essence we can acquire a FA as long as he has an existing contract (newly signed S&T) or any other player under contract up to the amount of the TPE plus $100K.

    So your thinking they are not going to take advantage of this then.

    My guess is they do not use it for this season to get under the repeater tax, and then use it next offseason to "add payroll" through a sign and trade as described above.  The C's will have several expiring contracts along with the draft picks and the new draftee's to be active next offseason.

    Trade exceptions are huge because they let you take someone else's salary reductions. If the Celtics are fortunate they'll get a very good peice for nothing in return. The timing would work the Celitcs do not use it this year to remain under the repeater threshold but use it next year before it expires after the season ends.

    Exactly ... for some unhappy player that is becoming a FA and the best thing the current team can do is a S&T for our TPE.

    Humphries $ frees up space for the C's to extend RR w/o waiting for his value to go higher. It's the optimum time to extend him as long as he is 100% next summer.
