Either this is just worded incorrectly or you’re simply wrong in general.It's not the actual salary but the salary cap hit. Even though he plays for us for a partial season when we traded for him we are on the hook for his whole salary in terms of luxury tax and cap. Depending on his contract payout structure we might actually pay him more real money to play with us now vs his traded contract.
We were real close to hitting the luxury tax line. I still haven't found a solid source for the number Real GM said 500k before we just did this signing and Bobby Marks said 1 million. Hopefully Windy or someone more reliable than those two will point it out at some point.
There’s no way you are on the hook for every player you trade for AND still trade away. There’s just no way. So since we acquired Baldwin for like a day, we’re on the hook in terms of luxury tax/cap with his salary? And every other player we acquired then traded —- like Burks for example.
Something can’t be right about this. One of you cap gurus provide more clarity please
