D-Will Contract Has Trade Kicker

Mark Deeks, who provides the comprehensive NBA salary data at ShamSports, tweets that Deron Williams new contract has a 15% trade bonus, meaning if he's ever traded, Williams will get 15% of whatever is left on his contract as a bonus. Such kickers are inserted to discourage trades. Ray Allen, Blake Griffin and Steve Nash have similar provisions in their new deals, Deeks notes.

However, the likelihood of Williams ever getting the 15% is less than one percent considering that a team can't exceed the maximum salary by adding his trade kicker on top of his salary. If he ever did get the kicker the team trading him has to pay it not the team receiving him.

Deeks also reports that Reggie Evans's three year deal "is small ($5,086,905) but fully guaranteed." That number would seem to put his starting salary at around $1.5 million. The Nets used one of their trade exceptions to make the deal work. Meanwhile, both Larry Coon and HoopsWorld take looks at the Nets salary cap situation.
