as many think?
At least dealing him before July 1st, when he will no longer be considered BYC, would not be as difficult as I had thought...
I assumed that if Bargs was dealt, his contract would be valued at 50% of the actual value. I did not know that his contract for the 2009-10 season would be the amount used. He made about 6.5 million that year, which is not that different from the 8.5 million that he is making this year.
Here is what I read on Larry Coon Salary Cap FAQ:
When trading a base year player, the salary used for comparison is the player's previous salary, or 50% of the first-year salary in his new contract, whichever is greater.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I am assuming then that Andrea could be traded for salaries ranging from 6.75 million to about 8.2million. Buddah or anybody else want to check the math????
