Trading a player they would buy out to another team, having them buy the player out(assuming they give them the finances), then resigning them to a lesser deal? (all under the table of coarse) You might see a deal go down like this. Philly trades Amonte to Detroit for Hatcher(both make roughly the same cash). Both teams buy the other guy out. Philly has an under the table deal for amonte to sign there for like a million bukcs and same with hatcher in detroit.
