In response to Mployee8's comment:
No ... you make no sense as usual. Both Joseph & White were rookie minimum contracts and had no affect on the overall deal. In essence it was a swap of one non-guaranteed player for the other meaning the only reason to do so was a preference by Danny for Joseph over White. Come up with another lame excuse now that your roster space as failed!
*Terry has a 7.5% trade kicker.
That means his 5.2m becomes 5.6m.
The Celtics will be sending a total of 33.39m.
KG(12.433m) + Pierce(15.333m) + Terry(5.625m) = 33.39m
The Nets will total 24.1m.
Humpy(12m) + GW(10.105m) + Brooks(1.210m) + Joseph(.788k) = 24.103m
24.103m x 125% + 100k is not enough to make match Boston's 33.39m.
The Nets are short by 2.529m.
24.103m + 2.529m = 26.632m
So 26.632m x 125% + 100k = 33.39m
To get the 2.529m, Bogans must be paid 5.058m. Only 50% of the 5.058m will count as outgoing salary because of the base year compensation rule. That's the 2.529m the Nets needed to make salaries match.
Here's how the trade was broken down:
KG, Terry, and White = 19.085m
Humpy, GW, and Brooks = 23.315m
Joseph to Boston - minimum salary player
Pierce for Bogans
15.333m - 5.058m = 10.275m TPE
