I dont really understand what it really is. I think I read that it if a team has a execption of about 5 million as the lakers do with the trade of Vujacic to the Nets the Lakers can trade that exception for a player that makes the same or less than the exception. For example, If the Lakers wanted Jordan Farmar back(as its been rumored) they could trade that vujacic exception for Farmar straight up? The Lakers just have to pick up his remaining salary and contract. Of course the only reason Nets would do that is if they dont feel like paying farmar and gladly send him to the lakers for nothing.

Correct. They can use the TE for a single player that makes the same or less then the amount of their TE.

I saw someone describe like a gift card with a certain amount of money on it. But you can only use it on one item at a time. But can continue to use it if they wish until its all gone. But like i said it can only be for one player at a time.

Does it have to be an exception for a player straight up? Or can you include players and/or picks along with the exception for that single player?

Read the thread I posted a link to, it explains trade exceptions very well (and nobody in this thread has gotten it right so far).
