How the Wizards have two large trade exceptions

The Washington Wizards got two big trade exceptions when they sent away Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and Antawn Jamison. Here's how they got them.

Why the Wizards-Mavericks trade is an all-around epic fail

Most NBA trades involving rebuilding teams have to be evaluated in three components.  One is whether the rebuilding team got somewhat decent current talent back.  The Wizards clearly didn't.  The...

Mike Jones. Miami surprises me, in that I don't see them taking on long-term salary. Maybe we can somehow pry Beasley or one of their two first-rounders from them for a Jamison/Josh Howard package.

The Wizards' desire to move Butler has only increased in recent days, since they found out they will indeed get some cap relief from the NBA this season after losing Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton to suspension for the rest of the season. Washington's cap number will be reduced almost $4 million, according to sources -- pro-rated amounts of the remainder of Arenas's $16.1 million and Crittenton's $1.47 million salaries -- taking its cap number to a little more than $74 million. The cap threshhold is $69.9 million, meaning Washington could avoid paying tax if it can pare another $4 to $5 million in salaries off its books. That means Butler, though I suspect the Wizards will ask inquiring teams to remove Mike James and/or DeShawn Stevenson from their payroll as well. Butler winding up somewhere in Texas is most likely, with Washington probably deciding between Dallas' and Houston's competing offers before next week's All-Star Game. The Wizards are determined to get a young player back, though, and the Mavericks' only non-geezer is rookie guard Rod Beaubois -- while Houston has a young guard like Kyle Lowry and an expiring big man contract in forward Luis Scola to pair with McGrady's $22 million expiring deal.

David Aldridge. He also says Portland is interested in Butler and that the Wizards aren't looking to move Jamison and Haywood right now. I'll have more later on why moving Butler before Jamison is a misguided strategy.

For weeks we've assumed that Antawn Jamison is the Wizard most likely to be moved, but that's not true, according to GMs who have had conversations with the Wizards. They say the team is reluctant to move Jamison, a franchise cornerstone. Butler, on the other hand, is very much available, and the Wizards shouldn't have much trouble finding interest: Butler has only one year remaining on his contract and he can still play, at age 29 (he turns 30 on March 13). One issue that could slow negotiations is the fact that the Wizards don't want to just give Butler away; they want both cap relief and a young asset. But that might be a heavy price in this market.

Chad Ford. Groan.

Kevin (Omaha) Thoughts on the Nets moving Devin Harris, and if so, what will it take to get him? Chad Ford (1:25 PM) As I've been writing for the past 2 weeks, he's available. The question is ... for what? The Nets are going to want something serious back in return. One idea I've heard floating around is Caron Butler for Harris.

Chad Ford chat. Hmm... (Also posted in the rumors thread).
