Kyle Lowry to the Warriors for a trade exception of 6.2M$ and draft picks. What does a TE means exactly? If it's 6.M$ in cash then I'm all for that trade.
My dreamland move is Lowry to Chicago for Mrotic(the best player in Europe). But there is no way Chicago does that, unless Mrotic says he isn't going to play for Chicago.

Kyle Lowry to NYK for Shumpert 2018 1st rounder
What is a trade exception and how can we use it?

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
As for Miami, I'm pretty sure the trade could be structured where we get the worse (or better) of their 2014 picks, and if they only end up with one pick, we get their 2017 1st round pick protected. So we can get around the fact that they've traded their 2015 1st round pick.
I'm really curious to see what Masai can get in return for Lowry. Lowry's playing great and on a cheap expiring contract. From the bar he set with Bargs and Gay I'll be disappointed if we don't get back something of note.
Guys there is a serious premium on any pick 1 - 20 in the draft. Do not expect any 2014 picks in that range, and be very surprised, thankful and amazed if happens. There are really solid players all the way into the early 2nd round of this draft. It truly is loaded
The question is whether Chicago might give up a pick, and I think they would given the right deal. The Raps can offer them a very good package by taking on Boozer's contract for Lowry and Amir. Mirotic (and some more Taj too) is set to replace Boozer next year anyway so it's either amnesty or trade, and Chicago's cheap ownership would no doubt prefer a trade. So by packaging Amir in you give Chicago a cheap and expendable Boozer replacement for the short term that can also back up Noah and ease his minutes a bit. Oh, and Thibs would love Amir, so there's that. He'd probably love Lowry too. So from Chicago's perspective this not only eases their cap situation, provides a solid replacement player at a position of need in Lowry and frees up minutes for better players in Gibson and ultimately Mirotic while providing a solid short-term replacement in Amir, they also get to chase a decent playoff seed in a very weak East. Or they do nothing and amnesty Boozer.
So, what is Chicago willing to give up to swap Lowry and Amir for Boozer? If I'm the Raps I'm asking for the more favorable (to Toronto) of Chicago's or Charlotte's 2014 firsts. Or see if they'll send both picks to you if you throw in a lottery protected first rounder in another year, or a crapload of second rounders, etc. Chicago can easilly send Boozer packing by paying with their picks, but will they find any other team willing to send such useful players on cap-friendly contracts back? My hope is no.
Though, I can't see CHI doing it and giving up 2 Firsts. Maybe we'd have to go up some Second Round picks?
Can't complain about that, and I could see MU being able to flip Boozer later on too.
3 First Rounders in 2014, along with some 2nd Round Picks...not so bad, :P
I think Boozer would be extremely hard to flip again. I'm not sure if MU would be willing to take on $16.8M in salary for one player next season since he didn't want to do the same thing for Gay potentially.
I don't know if MU would be willing to take that much salary on for extra picks when he just made a transaction to free up cap space for next season.
I would do the trade.. just not sure if MU would even consider it if it was made available.
