After the July moratorium, though, the Trail Blazers will need to clean house a bit by renouncing some cap holds and exceptions to get under the cap. So, in all likelihood, this is what the books will look like come 7/8/2009.

TOTAL

$49,982,722

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that noted, here's my off-season plan as of this very moment.

TRANSACTION #1

Trade Steve Blake, the draft rights of Patty Mills, a 2010 second-round draft pick (i.e., the more favorable of the pick owed by Chicago and Portland's own pick), and $3,000,000 in cash considerations to the Chicago Bulls for Kirk Hinrich.

The new total salary would then be $55,482,722.

TRANSACTION #2

Sign Jeff Pendergraph to three-year, $2,550,000 contract (2009-2010: $800,000; 2010-2011: $850,000; 2011-2012: $900,000), with the third season non-guaranteed if he's waived before 7/1/2011.

The new total salary would then be $56,282,722.

TRANSACTION #3

Sign Dante Cunningham to a two-year, $1,219,783 contract (2009-2010: $457,588 & 2010-2011: $762,195), with the second season non-guaranteed if he's waived before 7/1/2010.

The new total salary would then be $56,740,310.

TRANSACTION #4A

Trade Travis Outlaw, the draft rights of Victor Claver, the draft rights of Joel Freeland, and the draft rights of Petteri Koponen to the Houston Rockets for Shane Battier.

The new total salary would then be $57,343,210.

TRANSACTION #4B

Trade Travis Outlaw, Martell Webster, the draft rights of Joel Freeland, and the draft rights of Petteri Koponen to the Washington Wizards for Mike Miller.

The new total salary would then be $57,053,193.

TRANSACTION #5

Sign Robert Swift to a one-year, minimum-level contract.

TRANSACTION #6

Sign Anthony Carter to a one-year, minimum-level contract.

TRANSACTION #7*

Sign Ime Udoka to a one-year, minimum-level contract.

*Contingent on Transaction #4B occuring over Transaction #4A.
