Per Valenica, De Colo coming to San Antonio on 2-year deal

In the last 24-hours, the San Antonio Spurs have taken the lead in free agency news over the Dwight Howard drama by agreeing to terms with Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw, Danny Green, and Patty Mills.

Now De Colo himself has told Valencia, his former Spanish team, that he'll be coming to San Antonio on a two-year deal.

$2.8 million? Diaw signs a $4.5 million?

i'm deeply confused, that's way too much money?

2.8M for 2 years is very cheap, especially when you think the contracts in Europe. He'a like a bargain.

If you are trying to figure out the math on this one. Take a look at this:

NBA salary cap for 2012-13 season set at $58.044 million

By Official Release
Posted Jul 10 2012 9:13PM


NEW YORK -- The National Basketball Association today announced that the Salary Cap for the 2012-13 season will be $58.044 million. The tax level for the 2012-13 season has been set at $70.307 million. Any team whose team salary exceeds that figure will pay a $1 tax for each $1 by which it exceeds $70.307 million.



The Salary Cap and tax level, both of which are unchanged from 2011-12 amounts, go into effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Wednesday, July 11, when the league's "moratorium period" ends and teams can begin signing free agents and making trades.The minimum team salary, which is set at 85 percent of the Salary Cap, is $49.337 million for the 2012-13 season.


The current Collective Bargaining Agreement provides for three different mid-level exceptions depending on a team's salary level. The non-taxpayer mid-level for this season is $5.0 million, the taxpayer mid-level is $3.09 million and the mid-level for a team with room under the Salary Cap is $2.575 million.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Since it looks like we used the Mid-Level exemption to sign Diaw and De Colo we could have structured the salaries to look like this (This is just my best guess, nothing official):

Year 1

Diaw $3.8-4 million

De Colo $1-1.2 million

Total Salary $5 million

With the difference being made up in Year 2 for each player. More than likely Diaw is not getting $4.5 each year. The Spurs are probably starting him at an amount lower than that perhaps close to $4 million so De Colo can get the remainder.

Or, perhaps they just used the bi-annual exemption for De Colo. Here's the rules on that below:

http://www.nba.com/2012/news/feature...ine/index.html

The bi-annual exception

The bi-annual exception is a smaller exception that can be used once every two years by teams above the cap to add a player for more than the league minimum salary. But under the new CBA, tax-paying teams are no longer allowed to use it.

Now, these exceptions don't really come into play at the trade deadline. But the new rules really benefit the teams that are above the cap and below the tax line. So when teams make any kind of transaction, that's where they want to be as they project forward.

Even more from Cuban: "So now, if you look at the Heat as an example, because they're going to be over the luxury tax for the next three years, put aside the financial side of it, they can only use the mini mid-level and minimums to add a player. That's a big restriction."

I doubt they're planning on using it given luxury tax implications. Unless they can find somebody to take Bonner for no salary in return or waive Blair/Neal. Either way I don't think we'd come out ahead in most scenarios.

Waiving Neal or Blair to get under the tax cap would be idiotic because they are still pretty good values at even twice their salaries.

Buford had one interesting financial wrinkle. He said Mills and De Colo's deals did not come out of the midlevel exception. #Spurs

Very interesting. Possible still then (I think) to give someone slightly more than minimum.

Why do you think that?

PG - Parker, De Colo, Mills
SG - Green, Manu, Neil
SF - kawhi, Jax

it is just 3 deep, and only 2 deep at the SF spot.

^^ You left out Joseph.

But still, I think you're right. No reason any of them has to go.

Green can play SF, Sjax can play 2 also. Manu is injury prone. Joseph is raw, and Mills is pretty small (tenacious but unfortunately limited defensively and turnover prone due to lack of length).

Plus with the 82 game gring, we want as many ballers as possible.
