Memphis was the only team under the cap at the deadline.
They had almost $3 million in breathing room.
Thabeet and Mayo would have saved the Warriors close to $3 million in annual salary over Monta Ellis.
What's the money laundering total up to now with all the expired TPEs, insurance covered contracts, league subsidized veteran minimum deals, lopsided cash shifts on Harrington-Crawford-Jackson deals, etc.? And although I can't say I've verified directly with Larry Coon or the Mark the Sham Sports Guru directly, others tell me Coon confirms what the Sham Sports salary info indicates: Andris Biedrins never reached incentives benchmarks last season despite Marcus Thompson II's (neurotically reactionary) reports to the contrary. My guess is MTII got called up by the team and given a scoop. He released his story saying Biedirns had hit the incentives right after I brought the issue up last season. But the scoop looks to have been an outright lie. Biedrins' minutes screw over this season will save the Warriors another year of paying him his value on full minutes while they shit talk him out of both sides of their mouth.
My guess is the Warriors have saved well over $10 million in player salary commitments this season.
I'd say they're approaching $20 million.
I'd say they're not losing total money AT ALL despite terrible gate RECEIPTS (not attendance "fibs" and promotional Stat Padding).
I'd say Robert Rowell is not losing his job any time soon.
