    blazers team salary comes in under 45 mil, so, it’s counting money off the roster, and one of their players is listed as getting paid half the league minimum, montero, however that was managed…ironic, paul allen, who is one of the top fifty or sixty richest men in the world, has the lowest team salary by over ten million and, by my calculations, a whopping 25 mil under the salary cap…Way to go King Paul, way to go. BTW, where’s your philanthropy, the kind the serfs used to enjoy back in the gilded age of robber barons.
