The Raptors will no doubt renounce the rights to O’Bryant, Wright and Nesterovic thus freeing up a cap-hold of $5.57M. This amount would otherwise be counted against the cap when making any transactions. The only question is whether they will renounce Amir Johnson or not. His cap-hold is $7.88M.
If this is any indication of how a first round playoff series might play out, count me in as part of the crowd wanting to play the lottery. There have been many degrading moments in my life as a Raptors fan but losing handily to a team that’s not even trying to win the game has to be a first.
