  1. Chuck Myron

    The Delfino and Raduljica stretch provision payments show how the Spencer Hawes contract haunts the Clippers even after he’s gone. The Clips wouldn’t have been compelled to trade with the Bucks for them last summer if they hadn’t been hard-capped, and they wouldn’t have been hard-capped if they hadn’t signed Hawes. The Farmar signing via the biannual exception was technically a hard-cap trigger, too, but if Hawes isn’t taking up the mid-level, they could have used the mini-mid-level on Farmar.
