Thanks for that Matt. Hmmmm, I would than agree with stretch, the bucks on Magloire seem high for street clothing.
I can't remember where I read it but I recall reading teams that sign veterans with so many years actually get a subsidy from the league or NBAPA. So if Magloire was signed for $1.4M veteran minimum, then the team would actually only pay around $800k. Plus, minimum contracts can go over the cap so it wouldn't take valuable cap space below $58M. It would probably make a big difference for a luxury tax team - especially starting next year.

I'm not certain on the percentage or breakdown but I do recall seeing this.... I could be wrong though but I am fairly certain.
