Options as far as i know(not sure):

Buy a draft pick (ex: Filler/Cash for pick)
Possibly buy someone out with that money (ie: Solomon/Banks?)
Use it in another trade going forward or sign another player?

What are the options on what a team can do with Cash considerations?
Best thing in our case is to use it along with expiring salary to land a player off another team.

ie: Solomon, Joey, Parker and cash considerations(3plus million)
for Richardson and Dudley.(Phoenix is in cut salary mode right now and I think Richardson could be had.
Saves Phoenic a little over 12 million this offseason.)
