Kyle Korver Trade exception expires today

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Today is the last day the Bulls can use the $5M traded player exception (TPE). Will they surprise us and use it?

The passing will be mourned by frequently misinformed BaB commenters everywhere, who spent the last year not reading the CBA FAQ, and:

  • Suggested to combine the trade exception with actual outgoing players in trade to bring back a more expensive player, even though TPEs cannot be combined with players this way.
  • Suggested to use the TPE to sign a free agent, even though it can't be used to sign a free agent, just acquire a player under contract. Or a player via sign and trade, except that the Bulls can't use it that way because, they would also have to shed a lot of salary to get under the tax "apron" to do it.
  • Suggested we use it last year, even though we were hard-capped and any player we might acquire would be illegal to acquire since it would put us over thathard cap.
  • Suggested that the Bulls were actually going to use it this offseason, when doing so would cost them a shit ton of money.
Rest In Peace Kyle Korver Traded Player Exception. You came into the world on 7/16/12, when Korver was traded to the Hawks for cash, and expire today, never having fulfilled your true purpose in life.
