Went to ESPN's Trade Machine, and found that it showed the Kings with a Traded Player Exemption for about $3.5M which was some how associated with the Sheldon Williams trade. So, my question is 'how did that come about?'. And, what would be the best way to use it?
Also, after checking with the Coon's CBA site, I see where we have to consider the exemption as part of our salary, so it reduces our cap space for 09. Since it can't be combined with anything as part of a trade, and can't be used for a FA, does anybody have any ideas as to how GP could put it to good use.
The only thing that I could see was to take Songila off Washington hand in exchange for their pick. Far fetched I know, but I can't see how else it would be used.
