  1. Chuck Myron

    In a way, the Amir Johnson contract can function as a quasi-trade exception next summer, but I’m not so sure the Celtics wouldn’t have been better off staying above the cap and keeping their several actual trade exceptions.

    • Eddie Scarito

      His cap figure is already included, but I did add his name to the notes to clarify. Thanks!

  2. Curious as to why there is a discrepancy between Jae Crowder’s year-by-year salary on Spotrac and BasketballInsiders???
