View Full Version : Lopez Contract Has Trade Kicker; Nets Less Likely to Land Howard

Brook Lopez's new contract has a 15% trade kicker if he's traded in the first three years of his four-year deal, according to league sources. Under the terms of the trade kicker, the team trading a player would have to pay him an bonus equal to 15% of what he's owed over the course of the contract, his "remaining salary."

Lopez signed a four-year, $60.8 contract two weeks ago. The final year of the contract is a player option at $16.7 million. The trade kicker covers only the first three years salary. (Generally, salary owed to players in option years is not included in the definition of "remaining salary.) Few players have such kickers. Deron Williams has a 15% trade kicker as well.

Because Lopez has a max contract like Williams, he can't make any more than the max salary. The kicker would seem to complicate trade scenarios involving Lopez. As Mark Deeks explains in ShamSports, a trade kicker "can only be bothersome to teams and emphatically benefit a player." And the question remains, why did Lopez want the kicker inserted?

Wow.

Also the Nets cant take back Duhon, J Richardson, Turk, Q Richardson, and Davis

Why would Magic want Lopez at a max contract to be their franchise player and not give up any of the bad contracts

That would put Magic in a very big hole longer than 1) Trading him to Lakers in a 3 team trade where they tade bad contracts and Bynum (from LA) for young talent and expiring contracts 2) Letting him walk and shoot for top 5 picks like Thunder

The Nets dismissed as inaccurate a report that claimed Brook Lopez's contract (four years, $61 million) contained a 15 percent 'trade kicker'.
The inclusion of a 'trade kicker' isn't too uncommon (Josh Smith and Nicolas Batum have them, among others), but in this case it would be "irrelevant" because Lopez can't make more than the league maximum salary, which is what his contract already pays him. The clause would have made it much trickier to shop Lopez once he is eligible to be traded, so this is good news for Nets fans still hoping to land Dwight Howard.

Eddie Jordon and the Princeton offense will stop Dwight Howard from being traded to the Lakers. The last thing that offense need is a turnover machine and a center who has no range from the elbow! Also the Center needs to be SMART.

I thought Brad was making this up but I guess he's right.


Stefan Bondy
Nets said this about a report of Brook Lopez having a 15 percent trade kicker in his contract - which would force acquiring team to give him a 15 percent salary raise: "It is incorrect. Since Brook has a max contract like Deron, the trade kicker is irrelevant because he can't make any more than the max salary."http://sulia.com/post/brooklyn-nets/9e099dee-12e1-469f-81ac-ffa4917c2257/

I read that under the new CBA, the team that trades the player w/ a trade kicker will pay the bonus (15% of remaining salary on contract) compared to the old CBA where the team receiving the player would be on the hook for that 15%.


For contracts and extensions signed under the current CBA, a trade bonus is paid by the team trading away the player.

...a team trading a player with a trade bonus uses the player’s pre-trade salary (without the bonus), when comparing salaries for trade.
