There are some intriguing players who will sign extensions or become free agents next summer, such as Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson, Charlotte’s Kemba Walker, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard, Orlando’s Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris, Faried, Oklahoma City’s Reggie Jackson, Miami’s Norris Cole, and Chicago’s Jimmy Butler. The Celtics don’t have to worry about such four-year contract issues. That was the year they acquired JaJuan Johnson on draft night for MarShon Brooks. Johnson never stuck in the NBA and is now playing for Besiktas in the Turkish League. Brooks, meanwhile, has signed with Emporio Armani Milano of the Italian League.

Unrestricted free agent MarShon Brooks is progressing toward finalizing contract terms with Olimpia Milano Armani of the European League, a source told RealGM. Brooks had been in dialogue with NBA teams before advancing in negotiations with Olimpia Milano on Tuesday night. For Brooks, the Italian club holds great appeal for its financial stability and opportunity to play significant minutes in a supreme overseas league.
If the NBA feels that manoeuvring in the manner of the Warriors and Lakers above is contrary to the spirit of the Traded Player Exception and specifically to the use of non-simultaneous trades, then, fine. It pretty much is – on all but the most technical of levels, Brooks and Bazemore were traded for Blake in one deal, with only minutiae stating others. But it was also perfectly allowed by the very clauses the league signed up to in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. And if this is not the kind of matter that this passage of the memo refers to, then we will have to see what it is, because I have no other guesses. Nevertheless, whatever it is, this could be an interesting thing to watch develop. The NBA may be seeking to outlaw a practice it simultaneously permits. We shall see over time where the new boundaries lie.
Essentially, the trade is both one big deal and three parallel smaller ones at the same time. The need to trade something for something is satisfied in the overall deal and thus does not need to be satisfied in each parallel smaller one. The relevant passage in the memo suggests that it is this practice that may be under threat. However, in the trade that the quoted passage above was in reference to (the MarShon Brooks/Steve Blake trade from the last deadline day), provisions were not circumvented. Provisions were not defeated. Things were worked around, yes, specifically Golden State’s inability to aggregate Brooks’s salary in trade. But the Warriors and Lakers (mainly the Warriors) did all their finagling within the rules set forth by the Collective Bargaining Agreement. They did not do anything here other than what they were permitted to do, and even if they had done, the league still approved the trade.

The Lakers received a traded-player exception of $2,789,920 on Wednesday in their trade of Steve Blake to the Golden State Warriors for Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks. A traded-player exception can be used to acquire a player in trade without sending out matching salary. In the case of the Blake exception, the Lakers can deal for a player making up to $2,889,920 (including $100,000 of padding).
The Golden State Warriors have acquired veteran point guard Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks, it was announced today. […] “The acquisition of Steve Blake will provide us with additional veteran depth at point guard as we enter the stretch run of the season,” said Warriors General Manager Bob Myers. “He’s had a productive career and is a player who can both run an offense and has the ability to shoot the basketball. On the other hand, we thank Kent and MarShon for their contributions to our team both on and off the court and wish them success as they enter the next stage of their careers.”
