   Tax Payers, Trade Kickers, And Other Deadline Day Bookkeeping

[...] Meanwhile, Eddy Curry's trade kicker was invoked upon his trade to Minnesota. Curry's trade kicker called for a bonus equal to 15% of his remaining contract, up to a maximum of $5 million. Since this $5 million was not legal by the time of his trade, the 15% figure was used instead.

However, because half of Curry's salary this season was paid before the season began, the trade kicker was adjusted accordingly. Whereas Curry's outstanding salary upon the date of his trade would normally have been $3,338,059, only $1,691,529 was actually outstanding due to the upfront payment. 15% of that amount is $253,729, and thus that was the amount of Curry's trade kicker. A small amount relative to the size of his contract, perhaps, but enough to almost cover Curry's hitherto unexplained debt to Juwan Howard.

Despite how inevitable it seemed, Jerome James did not play in China this season, and nor does it appear that he ever tried to. But you can go ahead and pencil in Eddy Curry for a spot there next season.

In fact, you can probably use a pen on that.
