Can someone please explain them to me.  I know if teams make a trade, the players involved must have similar contracts in how much they are owed.  What is the exact rule though?  Does anyone know of a website that details them?

i think the contacts have to be within 10%of eachother if both teams are over the cap.

http://members.c0x.net/lmcoon/salarycap.htm- replace the '0' with an 'o' in the address bar!

Tranum, you may find this useful.

The basic rule is that if both teams involved are under the cap they can trade pretty much anything for anything. If over the cap, or one is over the cap, the 25% rule comes into effect and then you get into the business of matching salaries.

You can also go to ESPN.com and go to their trade machine, its under more+ on the NBA home page.

Draft picks (both first and second round) count $0 for salary matching purposes.  This is true both before and after the draft.  This can make it very difficult to construct a trade that is equitable in both trade value and basketball talent.  For example, Vancouver selected Steve Francis with the #2 pick in the 1999 draft, and traded his draft rights to Houston.  When the trade was finally engineered, it included three teams (Orlando was also involved), 11 players (including Francis) and two future draft picks.

Once the draft pick signs a contract, his actual salary becomes his trade value.

Note that even though a draft pick's trade value (for salary matching purposes) is $0, the pick is included in the team's team salary at 100% of his scale amount once he is selected in the draft (see questions 38 and 41 ).  If an unsigned first round draft pick is traded, then 100% of his scale amount is included in the acquiring team's team salary as soon as the trade is completed.

I think the Cap/trade rules are one reason the NBA is so far behind the NFL, and to some extent, Baseball.  It takes forever to get good in this league with out going really bad and losing all your fans.  THat never gives casule fans a chance to become die hard fans.
