With the regular season now concluded, here’s a snapshot view of the Nets’ assets heading into the 2017 draft:
|Picks||22, 27 and 57|
|Salary they can take back||$18.5-19.5 million|
|Draft Rights||Juan Pablo Vaulet (39th pick in 2015)|
As a reminder, the 22nd pick comes from Washington (Bogdanovic trade), and the Nets receive the 27 and 57th picks from Boston as a result of the pick swap (Garnett/Pierce).
The money the Nets can take back in a trade is slightly more fluid. In addition to cap space, the Nets have a number of waivable contracts they can send to teams looking to cut salary.
|Archie Goodwin||Prorated minimum||10/31/17|
If the teams are willing to wait until the 2017-18 league year opens in July, the Nets could be able to take back up to $35 million in salary.
