The Cavs have a very large trade exception from the Lebron trade. With trade season heating up, I thought this article would be helpful in explaining why they got it, and what they can do with it. Just my opinion, but I think Gilbert will use some, if not all, of it...I dont think he has the willpower not to. I'm guessing it's already in play. Cavs Trade Exceptions - Original Deal / Exception Amount / Expiration Date LeBron James / $14,500,000 / 11th July 2011 Delonte West / $535,680 / 26th July 2011 Some other teams with sizable exceptions... Toronto - 12.2M Utah - 6.5M Houston - 6.3M N.O. - 6.2M Phoenix - 5.7M Note: I'm not necessarily endorsing the use of it before the trade deadline. It can be a very valuable tool, but it can also solidify our spot on the treadmill of mediocrity for years. Anyhow, thought this might be interesting/educational for some of you.
