Diaw's Contract


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

- BYC after July, his outgoing trade value will be 50 % of his new salary, 4.5M, and his incoming value will be 9M.

A player's BYC status matters only to the team that is trading him away, not the team that is receiving him. So, for salary-calculation purposes, Diaw's new team would be taking on a $9 million salary. Just as with any other trade, they'd have to either have that much room under the cap or be simultaneously trading out enough salary to get within the 25% fudge factor.

For Phoenix, however, they get to count only half of his salary, so $4.5 million, as "outgoing." That means that, since they are over the cap, they could take back only ($4.5 million) * (125%) + ($100,000), or around $5.7 million.

This is why trades with BYC players are so difficult. If the partner team is also over the cap, they have to send out enough salary to make room for Diaw, which would mean about $7.1 million under the fudge factor rule. But if Phoenix can take only $5.7 million back, there's no way to make the numbers agree.

It's easier if the partner team is under the cap, if more players are involved in the trade (to bring the numbers higher and thus the percentages closer), or (sometimes) if a third team is involved.
I think that sums up everything pretty well.
