Taking Advantage of Teams that Want Cap Space (Us/Knicks/Blazers)

After the Knicks made the Crawford and Randolph trades, it was pretty obvious that the Knicks were clearing cap space for 2010, and they didn't seem to care about the skill of the player they got back. It's been general knowledge in the league that the Blazers need cap space in 2009.

Enter us.

We just so happen to have a 12 million dollar contract that expires in 2010 for the Knicks, and a 7 million dollar contract that expires next year for the Blazers. The Knicks also have several contracts that expire next year that the Blazers will want. All of this points to a trade.

How about this in two months (Al Harrington can't be traded with another player for two months):

We send out:

Larry Hughes

Drew Gooden

The Knicks send out:

Al Harrington

Jerome James

The Blazers send out:

Raef Lafrentz

We Get:

Raef Lafrentz

Al Harrington

The Knicks Get:

Larry Hughes

The Blazers Get:

Jerome James

Drew Gooden

I couldn't do this on the trade machine (though I tried) so I did some math on a calculator. We get back roughly 2 million more than we send out, the Knicks get back roughly 2 1/2 million less than they send out, and the Blazers get back roughly 1/2 million more than they send out.

I end with a question: If we’re over the cap during the year, but we have contracts that expire at the end of the year, and without those contracts we’re under the cap, are we over or under the cap?
