   Tax Payers, Trade Kickers, And Other Deadline Day Bookkeeping

Even when looking at those numbers, the Mohammed trade was also good for Charlotte, who picked up a solid power forward prospect in White in exchange for a veteran who was expiring anyway. If they really want Nazr back, they can sign him back in 2 years, when the lockout ends. And the Gerald Wallace trade was not bad either - two first round picks, a potentially useful backup small forward and complete salary absolution from a struggling and expensive player who seems to have already peaked is a pretty good return in any deadline deal. Gerald Wallace isn't Pau Gasol; this trade wasn't that trade. It's a good deal for Portland, but not a fleecing.


(Incidentally, note that Wallace's $10.5 million salary contains a $1 million all-star incentive currently listed as "likely," due to the fact that he was an all-star in 2009/10. Because he was not one this season, that incentive will be deemed "unlikely" when such matters are addressed in the offseason, thereby making Wallace's price tag a bit cheaper than it initially appears. And with the current depth of Western conference forwards, he is probably never going to be an all-star again.)

   The Finances Of The Trade Deadline Deals

(Others with All Star bonus include Gerald Wallace, who will now cost $500,000 more with his earned incentive. Danny Granger did not make the team this year, so he will be listed as $200,000 cheaper next season. And Zach Randolph will be paid $333,333 for finally making the team, as well as shedding the burdensome label of being the highest paid no-time-All Star of all time. That "honour" now goes to Damon Stoudamire, Zach's former teammate and current assistant coach at Memphis.)
