    People keep talking about trading Diaw, but his extension is kicking in this year which makes it very difficult. Does anyone know the exact details of what it would take to allow a trade? Would he essentially need to be traded to a team under the cap?

    i read on someone's post that diaw's contract will kick in on july 1..
    after july 1, he can be traded to any team that matches his salary,
    or he can be traded earlier than july 1 to a team that is under the salary cap..

    please correct me if i'm wrong..
    =)

    after July 1 he becomes a BYC player.....meaning that his real trade value is $4.5 mil instead of the $9mil he's being paid. his cap figure to the team he's being traded to is also $9mil.

    i guess an easy way to make sense of it and apply him to a trade would be to pretend that any team that he is traded to would be using a $4.5mil trade exemption to get him along with someone who makes $3.5-$5.5mil

    I think that sums up everything pretty well.
