So - How much did the Wizards save with this trade?

Editor's Note: Rook's calculations assume the Wizards will NOT pick up Randy Foye's 2010/11 qualifying offer of 4.8 million, which doesn't seem like a realistic assumption to me.  Of course, the Wizards could pick up the QO, watch someone else sign him and not match to save the listed money. -MP

It depends on how far out you go, as to how much the Wizards saved.... First, let's make a few assumptions.

1. Assume that Darius Songaila would pick up his Player Option for the 2010-11 season

2. Assume that the team would NOT pick up the Team Option on Pecherov for the 2010-11 season

3. Leave the Draft Pick's Team Options off the calculation
