TRADE ACCEPTED

I figure Dallas needs a banger, Nick wants to go back home to Texas. Portland gets a little more solid at the 2 guard.

Ahh What the heck...

I was thinking of a Dale and Damon trade as well...

In my limited mind, if there is a GS rumor still... how about this ?

NVE for Damon straight up...

problem being, if NVE does retire, we owe him for three years not the 1 if he just opted out... :confused:

or better yet add other players to it...

Damon and Davis and maybe Q for NVE and Dampier????

REASON:
NVE and Erick have 3 years potentially on the books. Yes, they can opt out this year.

Damon and Dale only have 2 years left.. expediating GS salary dump still by one year..
providing NVE and Erick do not opt out this year. I think the $ may keep them the full 3 years... meaning GS still saves $ by a whole year... a (2x) 3 years of contract = 6, down to (2x) 2 years = 4

if NVE and Dampier decide to then opt out from Portland.. Portland gets a year ahead on Dale and Damon's salary off the books... :whoknows:

Portland could conceivably get the Damon/Dale money off the books this year if NVE and Erick opt out in this trade scenario...
Nash could be exec of the year if he pulls this off...


Would GS do a NVE/Dampier for Damon/Dale swap???
Talent wise? $ wise I think they would

if a player retires without a medical reason, is his team obligated to pay him the rest of his contract? sounds absurd if true...

Not exactly in Dallas' favor is it.

Let me think....hmm....NO!

Finley is too valuable to the Mavs to make a deal like that.

I'm not sure how that would work, except I am in total agreement that it would be crazy if a player could simply "retire" and fall back on the guaranteed nature of the contract to get their money.

I would guess (no time to verify now) that NVE's cap number would still count against the team, but that they wouldn't have to actually pay him. In that case, NVE could probably be bought out (or paid to opt out) so he would get a little money and the team would not have to carry his contract as a ballast.

I'm not sure, though.
