Charlotte Bobcats receive...
2011 First (GSW) 2011 Second (OKC) Kenny Thomas (66) - $8,500,000
Total: $8,500,000 Projected Salary Total (CHA): $61,006,449
The Thunder are willing to push their first from 2011 to 2012, and include a second, to acquire C Marcin Gortat, a player who will compete at the team's weakest position, and cap flexibility. Charlotte is interested in 2011 Draft choices and will acquire 2. Additionally, the Bobcats cap figure for 2011/2012 is at $1,500,000, and the team will be in a far greater position to be active in FA than this year, and so for a team not intending to pursue FAs, Thomas one year contract is insignificant. And as the year progresses, the expiring contract will actually become a valuable asset.
