In the case of every attempted trade, Team X is obviously trying to make it an “advantageous’ one. In the case of the Dallas Mavericks and their pursuit of a trade of Courtney Lee, the idea, sources tell me, is to make it a “cap-advantageous” one. The purpose begins with the expansion of the team’s soon-to-exist (around July 1) cap room of almost $30 million, and how to expand that. Finding a way to part with Lee, 34, who came over in the Knicks trade for Kristaps Porzingis with one year and $12.76 mil remaining on his contract, can bump that space up to where acquiring a big-fish free agent like Kemba Walker would be just that much easier. Conventional wisdom suggests that the Mavs can “just” stretch-waive Lee, and that is indeed an avenue.
