My question is: If for example though hypothetical:
The Sixers were to offer Iguodola for the Warriors number 2 draft pick. Now Iguodala's salary is , say 12 million a year, and a #2 pick gets only 3.5 million. We certainly see it's done straight across all the time. The Jrich for Brandan Wright is such a trade. Are trade's for draft prospects exempt from the 25% trade rule? If not, By what trade mechanism(s) can teams do that?
You can only do a trade like that with a team that is under the cap. If the Dubs were far enough under the cap to accept Iggys contract, he could be straight swapped for a pick.
Yea that's right, the Bobcats were under the cap when the JRich for BW trade was made, so it was possible then. To get Iguodala, the team would have to give a big enough contract along with the #2 pick, in that scenario, something like Monta and the #2 for Iggy
