    Hawks/Wolves BLOCKBUSTER!

    - Hawks acquire Jimmy Butler from Wolves for K.Bazemore, Cavs 2019 top-10 protected 1st & Thunder top-14 protected 2022 1st.

    MIN: KAT/GIBSON/WIGGINS/BAZEMORE/TEAGUE.

    ATL: DEDMON/COLLINS/PRINCE/BUTLER/T.YOUNG
    KEY B: PLUMLEE, SPELLMAN, HUERTER, BEMBRY, LIN.

    I know ppl will ask "why would Atlanta do this". Reason: They are trying to clear cap space. Bazemore isn't going to Opt-out of the contract, but Butler will. Yes the cost might seem crucial; but both future picks will be AT MOST 15-20 overall range.

    Clearly you don't have a clue on the Hawks policy for the next 2 seasons...

    if the Hawks were after clearing cap space, they would be taxed about 100M for next season... Hawks are doing the opposite, they will trade both Lin and Dedmon that are on expiring, for 2-years (bad) contracts in deals that are as close as possible to 125% of their contract values, they'll waive the players so that they don't have roster spots occupied and only wright the contracts on their books for next season and they'll ask for young assets & picks in return.

    Plumlee they'll wave sooner or later, Bazemore has 2 years remaining, they will trade him too for bad contracts and will try to have a pick and an asset in return.

    Hawks are looking to write another 40M+ in their books for 19/20 season, not to "clear cap space"... You obviously don't know that in NBA you are not only taxed for being above the luxury tax, but you are taxed as heavy, for being below the min salaries limit set...

    EDIT: That's why they waived Carmelo Anthony this season, immediately after paying him some... 27M! Same policy.
    They payed 27M to buy the pick and the asset (Justin Anderson) and to avoid being taxed this season, understand now?
