Addendum to Randolph trade

In addition to Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins, the Clippers received approximately $1 million dollars from the Knicks in the trade for Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas last Friday.

Also, because of the way Randolph’s contract is structured, nearly a third of his salary is deferred money. His salary cap number is the same of course, but the actual payouts are different.

In other words, financially this deal was quite a bit more shrewd for the Clippers side than we’d previously understood.
