Not wanting too be a nuisance, but wouldn't that make the Joe Johnson / Channing Frye trade illegal?
100% of Frye's 6M + 5M is 11M
150% of Frye's 6M is 9M.
Johnson's contract is 11.5M, more than either of the above, especially the 9M which is the lesser & therefore the one to use.
Am I misunderstanding how to apply the maths?
