    By not making a trade at the deadline and not making a waiver claim the Jazz have done two things.

    1. They did not do anything to impede the progress Exum has made as a player. This is very important and I guarantee this was the biggest reason that a move for a point guard wasn't made. Exum has 15 double-digit scoring games this year in 58 games. He had 13 double-digit scoring games his rookie year in 82 games. That's just a quick stat I found by researching and I'm sure you could find plenty more showing his improvement.

    2. Every player on the Jazz is set to receive a $260,000 raise because they are 4 million dollars under the salary floor. This is a nice bonus for each of the players and will make all of them happy.

    Sometimes the best move is no move at all.

    oops?

    well, they are at fifteen players right now, so taking on salary would mean losing someone, and everyone is fitting into a role right now. it does seem a waste, but if they make it into the second round they should recoup the loss nicely. Still though, you would think that something could have been done. Oh well, they are worth it as a team, so what the hey?

    One of the best aspects of the NBA.

    Premature. We still can sign a FA. Their full year salary reduces this amount. No pro rata

    yeah, sign someone into that secret sixteenth roster spot.

    which doesn't exist.

    Are you sure about this? I remember posing this question to GVC last year, iIINM. I believe he mentioned the floor was based on actual payroll dollars while the salary cap is based on contract amounts. I'm not a capologist so not sure.

    Not sure what offers were on the table but now it looks fine to stand pat and give bonus to the players who fought hard to make up for injuries.

    You are right, it is impossible. For example, the Jazz never cut Biendris when claiming Eric Murphy off of waivers in 2014.

    Not a capologist either, but I've read this from many reliable sources. Here is one I just googled:


    In the event that a Team’s Team Salary for a Salary Cap Year as of the start of the Team’s last Regular Season game of that Salary Cap Year is less than the applicable Minimum Team Salary for that Salary Cap Year, the NBA shall cause such Team to make payments equal to the shortfall (to be disbursed to the players on such Team pro rata or in accordance with such other formula as may be reasonably determined by the Players Association). The Players Association shall provide the NBA with its proposed distribution of any such shortfall within thirty (30) days after the completion of the Audit Report for such Salary Cap Year. The NBA shall cause the Team to make the required payments, less all amounts required to be withheld be any governmental authority, within ten (10) business days after receipt of the proposed distribution from the Players Association in accordance with the preceding sentence.

    What gets factored into the minimum-team-salary calculation?
    •The salaries of all active players.
    •The salaries of any waived players.
    •The salaries of any players who were released via amnesty or the stretch provision.
    •Salary being paid to retired players (per the terms of the retired players’ contracts).
    •Salaries of players who suffered career-ending illnesses or injuries.
    •The full-season salary of any player acquired via trade during the season

    I thought you understood the CBA better than that. SAD!

    Why would the team waste $4M when they can sign a player and avoid most of this expense? Even if it is for a player who does not help the team. Presumably they can put this money to good use elsewhere. I doubt the transfer to players buys you much goodwill. Sixers do this all the time.

    IT is also not a given that each player receives the same amount (although there is precedent for this). The split is determined by the player's association. I believe it is a team vote.
