The original trade was (and I'll do this rough and use more detail on the trade that will actually happen):
Bargnani (10.5 M with trade kicker) for Novak (4.1 M) and Camby (4.6 M) plus picks.
4.6 + 4.1 = 8.7 M
NYK are above the tax, so they can only absorb 125% + 100,000 of what they send out.
8.7 M * 1.25 = 10.875 M + 100,000 = 11 M
So the deal works.
But it didn't get done in time, so I'll dig into what they have to do to make it work in my next post.

Reason: To fix for trade kicker.
