    We already used that cash on the Memphis trade.. can only use the cash on one transaction per year.
    Total transactions for the year cannot exceed $3M.

    Technically you could do 6 transactions at $500K each.

    This may be an easy way for us to get back into the draft. It's one pick lower than we were suppose to have and it wouldn't hurt to strength our team.

    I'm not sure how we would aquire it -- are players like Pietrus still on our payroll to trade until the draft?

    or could we trade a future second round pick and cash?

    Who would you draft at the 13th spot?
    I thought "a going rate" for a first rounder is $3 mil. Since we used it, I am not sure what else we could do? Can you trade now an expiring contract for that pick?

    Who do you draft? There is a number of PGs or combo guards -Perhaps groom one (all but top 2 or 3 should be available -Detroit, NOla...). A Center (Olyniuk?).
    A lot depends of what (if anything of value) we can get for AB.

    Yes, thanks.. still not sure how much of that $3M is left. I wish that stuff was made public somewhere. At least I can't find it referenced anywhere.

    Would that random 2nd round pick the Raps stashed in Europe be available for a trade? His rights and future cash?

    I can't find how much cash was spent on the Gay trade.

    EDIT: Would rather want a late 1st/ early second pick for Kabongo (save some money on contracts), but MCW is intriguing, or if Trey slides (doubtful)

    Not sure I'd take him at 13....but one guy that has interested me since I saw him leading Russia in junior tournaments is Sergey Karasev. I'd probably put him behind Saric and Adetokounpo in how much he intrigues me...but he might be the best player of the bunch at the moment. Can flat out shoot the ball, is a very smart player, has legit SF size. With a later 1st rd or early 2nd rd pick he's pretty intriguing, especially if a new GM is going to even try to trade one of the wings we currently have. I think he also has a Euro contract with small buyouts, so could be brought over or stashed.

    I recall Eric Pincus at HoopsWorld.com saying it was the full $3M.

    2013 Nike Hoop Summit, TBH hes got the length/size of a Rondo, speedy and hes a spot up shooter that can hit the three.

    Definitely worth a shot at obtaining the pick, for a backup with starter potential down the road.

    Kabongo and Siva, whom I like a little more than Myck, will likely be available deep into the second round. A pick for one of those should be attainable. Siva is a 4 year collegian and MVP of a National Championship game and will be one of the quickest players in the league. In many cases second rounders never make it in the NBA because they don't play and don't therefore develop. Siva is ready to play.

    in this draft only European players are worth drafting if you don't own a top 10 pick. They are undervalued, I see few surnames which can be steal picks after couple of seasons.

    The day that Europeans were undervalued is long gone. After that we had the days that Europeans were overvalued, and these have gone as well.

    That is a great point. Dirk created a mania for a few years.

    If the Raptors amnesty Kleiza and decline option on JL3, they could trade Lowry for Marion and 13.

    Dallas cuts $3.1M off cap plus #12 cap hold ($1.5M) while also filling a huge need (PG) who is on a 1 year contract and ties in with the desire to make a big splash in 2014 free agency as Dirk takes a pay cut to help field a winner.


    Schroeder would be the target at 13.

    Does Marion have a massive expiring deal or something? Why would you trade Lowry for Shroeder, essentially?

    For the record I really like Schroeder, just playing devils advocate.

    Edit: I have a feeling Schroeder is going to fly up the draft and be a top ten pick, if not higher.
