   Creative Financing in the NBA, 2010
2010-08-12

The other type of no-trade clause - the one made famous by Devean George - involves players on one year contracts who will have early or full Bird rights at the season's end are given the right to veto any trades that they may be in, so that they aren't powerless to prevent having their Bird rights taken away from them (which is what happens when such players are traded, for reasons I am not aware of.) The players who qualify for that criteria and thus yield that power are as follows;

1) Jason Collins (Atlanta)
2) Marquis Daniels (Boston)
3) Anthony Carter (Denver)
4) Rasual Butler and Craig Smith (L.A. Clippers)
5) Shannon Brown (L.A. Lakers; this can be avoided if he invokes his player option for next season concurrent to the trade.)
6) Jamaal Magloire and Carlos Arroyo (Miami)
7) Aaron Gray (New Orleans; same as Brown.)
8) Josh Howard (Washington)

Just because they have this power, it doesn't mean they will use it. Devean George did, but that was the exception; players last year who could have done but didn't include Nate Robinson and Royal Ivey. Nor did Aaron Gray, who has achieved the unusual feat of having the right to veto a trade in back to back seasons. It is, however, something to note.

   The best of what's left
2010-07-30

Shannon Brown - Brown is one of the hottest commodities left on the market, which confuses me. He is not a bad player, yet he recently found himself in a system ideally suited to his strengths and weakness. In the triangle, Brown got to defend the point guard (sometimes) while not playing it on offense. He got to run the court and finish in style, without having to do any ballhandling in the half court. He got every shot set up for him, and it didn't matter as much that he's not a good shooter. And yet he STILL wasn't very good, shooting only 42% from the field and 32% from three, barely taking a foul shot, recording a true shooting percentage of .517% and a PER of 12.4. Brown is a useful role player and better defensively - who'll get even better on that end when he learns to go over screens - but he's overrated. He takes bad shots and can't dribble or shoot well at 6'4. This is not a player to overpay for. Tony Allen is better.

Joel Przybilla also had a trade kicker, invoked upon his trade to the Bobcats, and Peja Stojakovic's trade bonus was invoked upon his trade to Toronto, about a month before the deadline. Additionally, Lou Amundson's deal with Golden State, signed after the publish date of the original post, also contained a 15% trade kicker, as did Shannon Brown's new contract with the L.A. Lakers.

   Anthony Morrow's impending free agency
2010-05-10

[Anthony] Morrow is to be a free agent this summer. There's no getting around that, because he is not eligible for an extension. He has played only two years in the league, and teams can make players with three years or less experience into restricted free agents, whether they like it or not, by extending a qualifying offer. [...] The exception to this rule, the only exception, is players who were on a first round rookie scale contract, who had an option year declined. This means that players like Acie Law, Joe Alexander and Ian Mahinmi will not and cannot be restricted free agents this summer. They can also never be restricted free agents ever again, so even if Alexander (a two year veteran) were to sign a one year deal somewhere this summer, meaning that he would be only a three year veteran during his second free agency stint in the summer of 2011, he cannot be made into a restricted free agent then either. This is what happened to Shannon Brown last year.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
