    I looked at the list of free agent small forwards. Slim pickings, to be sure. With all the speculation about trades, we'll have to depend on the GM to make the best move, because signing a free agent small forward would be very difficult.
    You know what that means?

    Another possibility for Hansbrough is that Toronto does not waive him, but waits until after July 1 to trade his contract. That will allow another team to keep his contract for one year, which is relatively low for an experienced power forward.
    Doug Smith reports today in the Toronto Star that "Sources have said itís inconceivable the Raptors will assume the $7 million owed Salmons. If they canít trade him by Sunday night, they will exercise the $1 million buyout that will make him an unrestricted free agent.

    Hansbrough is a more difficult decision, according to team sources. He can be bought out for $1 million on a $3.3 million contract, but he might be worth hanging on to for his expiring contract, which can be added as cap ballast in future transactions."

    With no word from the Toronto front office, it looks like Tyler Hansbrough is now under contract for the 2014-15 season. I have read conflicting reports, but several sources say they had to waive him before midnight on June 29th. A trade is still very possible during the free agent period, however. He might as well play for a team that will use him less capriciously than Dwane Casey.

    Salmons is gone, and I expect he will be waived by the Hawks, never to play in the NBA again.

    Yeah, Hansbrough's locked in now, and the Hawks will waive Salmons today. Bet Salmons gets the minimum somewhere though. Rasual Butler's been floating around for years even though he's useless.

    Ujiri might have decided Hansbrough's small expiring contract is worth more between now and the deadline than the 2M he'd save by waiving him.

    This leads me to believe that PP does not seem keen on coming back. Or at least he wants more money that we can offer.

    You would think they would say something to the press about it. Tyler apparently is working out in Chapel Hill right now. I hope he works on his passing and a pull-up jumper.

    I have to think Mr. Ujiri has something up his sleeve. The power forwards available are a lot better than the free agents at small forward.

    Considering TH is a 4, I'm assuming that PP isn't coming back.

    I don't think it for sure means anything. To me, it's a safety move. Cutting Tyler doesn't save much money or make an impact on what they can do in free agency. But if Pat gets an offer they don't want to match they have Tyler as a backup plan. And if Pat does come back they have good depth, and Tyler's contract is pretty moveable as a trade piece.

    In terms of space, it would be saving around 3.3 Million. That is quite a bit when you look at GV and PP might be demanding about 10-12 million between them.

    he has 1 mil guaranteed I think. That means he would only save us 2.3 Mil if we cut him

    It's not a big amount, and doesn't affect our ability to re-sign GV or PP since they are both RFAs, or Lowry since we have his bird rights as well. The money saved is pretty pointless from a flexibility standpoint, as pointed out it's just 2.3M...that's nothing.

    Again, if they want to trade him, I don't imagine it's too hard to find a suitor somewhere. And it does nothing to handcuff the team in any way.

    If they are trying to avoid the tax, keeping Hansbrough basically just cuts into the ability to keep de Colo, unless one of the 3 main free agents gets a bigger pay day than expected.

    Yeah...I doubt they seriously care about De Colo though. Sure they like him. I see them giving the QO more as just a cautious move. If one of Lowry/GV walks, they easily lock down a backup PG for next year with Nando. If both come back and they don't see a real reason to keep De Colo, I can see them rescinding the QO and letting him walk (which I believe they can do).

    So far it seems to me like Ujiri is just trying to cover his bases and make sure he has options for different contingencies.
