    I am assuming pecking order goes by season records, which in this case I assume goes to last season, which means we have first selection on waivers?

    I'm guessing the Suns will make a trade earlier rather than wait as teams will want to get something for the players they decide to cut. The Suns will have to show they are not willing to panic though.

    Yes. I guess that is true.

    You may be right:

    The key here, IMO, is "whichever is less." So your number is probably correct.

    Anyone know how long it takes the exception to be approved?

    Not long, should be done by Friday and if it's not then I would think Monday at the latest. Usually the league reviews it and gets back to the team pretty quick. It can vary depending the injury, or illness, and how long the league doctors take to basically confirm what we said is true. A player needs to be considered out for the season but I think it's actually a certain amount of months. Boston got one for Gordon Hayward last year and there was talk of what happens if he returned. They used that money to sign Greg Monroe. If Hayward had returned early though the only issue would be the roster spot. They would have needed to get back down to 15.

    I believe the disabled player exception would also mean Arthur doesn't count against the 15 man roster but I'm not 100% sure on that. I wonder how long the Suns knew this and perhaps tried to use it in a trade. That would help another team a lot more than it will help us.

    I think we'd all like McConnell (at a reasonable price), but I doubt the Sixers let him go without being blown away by the offer until Fultz proves he can actually function.

    Tomas Satoransky might be another target.

    Satoransky, Meeks for Daniels, Harrison with using the DPE works under the cap.

    WAS saves a lot of money because of lux tax savings and gets a competent 3p-shooter backup SG instead of 19 games absence of Meeks due his violation of the drug policy.

    I don't think Washington does that trade. He's their #2 point guard and Wall missed half the season last year.

    They acquired Rivers who can play some PG and they will be a repeated luxury tax payers this season, so this move would save more than 10 mil. for them.

    Besides, Satoransky barely played in the play-off, so he is far from a key-contributor.

    I haven't paid any attention to Satoransky before - my source lists his as a SG but his assists are in PG range and his ast/to is stellar at 3.5 plus he shot .523 from the field and .465 from the arc. If he's not sieve on defense they will hang on tight. Yeah, he's not a big time scorer but shooting and overall offensive efficiency is right up there with the best in the league. He even rebounds well for a guard.
