131 is apparently the max they can save with it but I don't think that took into account GP2's contract.
I just read that the Blazers are disputing the report, he passed their physicals multiple times, was cleared to play and had been playing. Supposedly Warriors have until Sunday to either go ahead, or void deal. AS you said no changes allowed since deadline has passed.
I think they'll keep it because they can't possibly void it and expect Wiseman to come back and happily sit on the bench.
I guess we'll see but the way Kerr dodged the question implies he was told Payton failed the physical
I believe that 131 you are referring to is what they would have saved over the next 2 years if they traded Wiseman without taking any salary back and would have saved ~$57mil this year. Taking GP2 back they only save ~$5.5mil this year I believe and ~$25mil over the next 2 years. It's a really rough spot for GSW because if they don't except the trade they still end up on the hook for all that money for a guy they just tried to get rid of, or they are still effectively having to pay $52mil for a guy that may not play for them this year.
Really shady stuff from Portland. First having him play through something another team feels needs several weeks of recovery, then trading him without disclosing it to the new team.
I'll be curious to see if the league looks into this or maybe provides some special accommodation for GSW to not have GP2 salary count toward the tax. Not sure if anyone remember but when Jeff Green was traded to the Celtics for Perkins they found Green had a heart condition that was not disclosed. The league investigated it and even though the determined OKC management did not know of the issue and weren't dealing in bad faith, the team cardiologist did know of the issue and didn't report it. The league ended up giving Boston OKC's 2nd round pick. This situation seems more egregious since I can't see how team officials can claim ignorance if they were shooting him up just to get on the court.
