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.
officially the raptors have picked up the team option on TH.
Surprised! I guess this means that either PP or GV ain't coming back.
Eh follow my TWITTER!
Maybe Masai knows someones will bid on PP.
Im really sad, PP was awesome when healthy.
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
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.

He might be looking to flip psycho T you never know
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.
So far it seems to me like Ujiri is just trying to cover his bases and make sure he has options for different contingencies.
