You can't actually trade for purely nothing ...because that's a giveaway, not a trade. But in exchange for whatever is intended to be given, the return can be nothing more than a pick with so many conditions attached that it will never be sent. And we see those trades happen with some degree of regularity.

Look for this type of trade as we near the trade deadline and a team is just over the tax line but wanting badly to get beneath it. Sometimes the receiving team can use a minimum salary exception, or in other cases they might be under the cap and using cap space.

What if its a 2 part trade: for example -

Part one
Lakers outgoing:

Nothing

Boston outgoing:

Leandro barbosa - 854,389

Part two

Lakers outgoing / Boston incoming:
Chris Duhon - 3,391,105

Boston outgoing - lakers incoming:
TPE bigger then Duhons salary
2017 second round draft pick

So in summary, it's like Duhon for Barbosa / 2nd but it takes two parts of a trade to do it.


( I don't know if Boston has a TPE just an example) but theoretically would this work under the CBA?
