Dime lists the top expiring contracts this season and two Nets make the list. Bobby Simmons is listed at #2, just behind Larry Hughes of the Knicks, while Tony Battie is listed at #14. In both cases, though, their listed salaries are lower than reality. Both received trade kickers when they came to New Jersey, putting Simmons at $11.242 million and Battie at $6.606 million. As a result, both are top 10.
