To stay below the luxury tax, Cleveland needed to send Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin IV to the Rockets. The Cavaliers will create a $1.5M trade exception for both players. Cleveland is now $1.2M below the tax. Brandon Knight has a cap hit of $14.6M and $15.6M for 2019-20. Marquese Chriss is on a $3.2M expiring contract. Chriss was acquired into the $3.47M Rodney Hood that was recently created. The Cavaliers will need to keep on eye on their payroll for next season. Cleveland has $122.4M in guaranteed contracts, $10M below the luxury tax. The guaranteed salary does not include a projected top five pick in the June Draft.
