Expiring Contracts Traded At 2015 Deadline

Pelicans GM Dell Demps last week became the latest NBA figure to point to the declining value of expiring contracts as trade chips in recent years, but it’s not as if contracts in their final season don’t still end up in trades. Several expiring contracts changed hands at the trade deadline last year, and Demps’ Pelicans were involved, both coming and going. They acquired the expiring rookie scale contract of Norris Cole and shipped out John Salmons and his expiring deal in a three-team trade with the Suns and Heat. They also traded for Ish Smith that day, though his deal was only for the minimum salary, and they immediately waived it.

Here’s a look at each expiring contract worth more than the minimum salary that ended up in a trade at the deadline last season, ranked in descending order of value. Note that this doesn’t include contracts that contained options or non-guaranteed salary beyond last season.
