For those wondering, here are the salary-cap implications of Thursday's deal that sent Jordan Crawford to the Boston Celtics for Leandro Barbosa and Jason Collins:
The Wizards are actually adding a little bit of salary this year, though the final number may change if Barbosa and Collins accept buyouts. Crawford is making just under $1.2 million this season, whereas Barbosa and Collins were both making just over $850,000, the veteran's minumim. Combined, the Wizards will actually add about $500,000 to their books this year, pro-rated over the rest of the season.
Again, that number may change if the Wizards agree to a buyout with either player. Regardless, the Wizards will not save or add significant salary this season with the trade.
