The Trade Checker must not be accounting for Bosh's 15% kicker. Add another 15% to the incoming salary for Washington and it doesn't work.
1. Yes, the ESPN Trade Checker does not calculate trade kickers.
2. Bosh's trade kicker can't take him higher than the average of the max (for his 9 years of servive) and the new number with the full 15% raise. The average of $16,402,500 and $20,072,100 ($17,545,000 x 1.15) is $18,237,300.
3. Nene's deal is $13,000,000 .. to match it has to be within $5,000,000, so it just misses.
4. Bosh could agree to take less than his full kicker. If he has to take less, that gives him a de facto "no trade clause." Pay him the full amount, and he can't say "no."
5. It other players are added from MIA's side, it's likely that you will need to configure it as two consecutive trades to make the numbers work. Bosh part matches witrhin $5 mil if you don't go over $19.8 mil, and then a second trade for the second part. Try to avoid a Bosh package that goes over $20 mil in one deal, because then matching has to be within 25% .. not the $5 mil grace period.
