Calderon's contract structure?

Does anyone think that BC will structure Jose's contract to allow to spend a little extra money this summer and next summer. In other words back load the contract.I think it's highly probable!

Possibly something like 4 years/32million

1st year/6million
2nd year/7million
3rd year/9million
4th year/10million

I doubt it.

We're already over the cap, so all we have is the MLE and the veteran minumum anyway.

I was thinking the same thing - but I'm not sure what's more important, to have a few more bucks this summer, or to save for 2010. Probably it depends on what's available right now, if we can get a significant upgrade at SF, he might try this trick. But I'm afraid that unless we get rid of Joey and/or KH, we'll have very little money to spend. Right now I think we will have to fill the rest of our roster with D-Leaguers, unless they make a business decision to go over the luxury tax.

Luxury Tax - Since the NBA utilizes a soft cap allowing teams to exceed the salary cap to resign their players, the league instituted a luxury tax in 1999 to penalize teams that exceeded the cap by a large amount. Even though the the luxury tax was instituted in 1999, the first year it came into effect was the 2002-03 season. For each dollar a team is over the luxury tax they must pay one dollar to the league which is then dispersed between the teams below the luxury tax threshold. The Luxury Tax again was not triggered in 2004-05 as the BRI (Basketball Related Income) as the players paid into there escrow accounts lowering the BRI percentage of salaries and benefits below the trigger point of 55%.
For example, the Dallas Mavericks have a payroll totaling $79,351,704 and the Luxury Tax for the 2007-08 season is $67,865,000 so the Dallas Mavericks will need to pay the league $1 for every dollar they are over the luxury tax threshold. In this case the Mavericks will owe $11,486,704 to the league as a penalty for exceeding the Luxury Tax number.
In the new CBA agreed upon in 2005 provided an 'amnesty clause' which is a one time opportunity to waive one and only one player to avoid him counting against the teams luxury tax number however his salary will still count against their cap number. A team may not re-sign or acquire said player until the length of the terminated contract.

so if we use the amnesty clause, we might be able to use our full MLE and stay under the luxury tax ....

Can someone let me in on what MLE is again? I remember knowing what it was like no more than a month ago but I just forgot part of what it is. Can someone just refresh my memory please?

There was about a two week window in the summer of 2005 for teams to do this. It's no longer applicable.

Toronto used it on Alonzo.
