There’s been plenty of argument on whether or not the Cavs should be allowed to re-sign Zydrunas Ilgauskas after parting ways with him in a trade at the deadline, but not much analysis on why they’re allowed to re-sign him. As is the case with almost every cap-related issue, we turn to Larry Coon.
Coon runs the legendary NBA Salary Cap FAQ, and has been doing some work with the New York Times among other outlets. In writing for the Times’ NBA blog, Off the Dribble, Coon breaks down the specific conditions and exceptions that allowed a seven-foot Lithuanian to travel from Washington to Cleveland and back without anyone stopping him.
