The Cowboys have restructured the contracts of All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith and All-Pro center Travis Frederick, freeing up roughly $17.3 million, moving them under a proposed salary-cap of $168 million for 2017, according to sources. The total cap will be finalized by March 9 when the league year begins. The Cowboys turned roughly $21 million of the $24 million due Smith and Frederick into signing bonus to create the room. Smith was set to make $10 million in 2017, while Frederick was set to make $14.221 million.

Commissioner Adam Silver said nothing was resolved when he left the Charles Oakley-Jim Dolan meeting. He is "disheartened" to see that Oakley and Dolan have still not made up but he remains "hopeful" Oakley will return to the Garden. Silver said Oakley was "very emotional" during that meeting and said he would think about it when the meeting ended.
