Here are the financial implications for San Antonio: The Spurs now have a projected payroll of $121.3M and $2.4M below the luxury tax. DeMar DeRozan has a cap hit of $27.7M for the next three seasons with a player option in 2020-21. Jakob Poeltl is under contract for the next two seasons with a salary of $2.9M and $3.8M (team option). The team option can be exercised from when the trade is finalized up until October 31 of this year. For 2019-20, San Antonio has $109M in team salary that factors in the $16M contract of Pau Gasol. The contract has $6.7M in guaranteed money that becomes fully protected if he is not waived by July 10, 2019.

Here is the contract breakdown for the main principles in the Toronto and San Antonio trade: Kawhi Leonard has two years left on his contract with a cap hit of $20.1M and $21.3M. The second year is a player option that Leonard is likely to opt-out of. Leonard has a 15% trade bonus of $3M that will be added to his 2018-19 salary. The Spurs will be responsible for paying the bonus but the $23.1M cap hit will count against the cap for the Raptors. Leonard is extension eligible 6 months after the trade for a contract of four years, $108. The Raptors will inherit his bird rights and can sign him to a five year, $189.6M (starting salary of $32.7M) contract in the summer of 2019 when he is a free agent. Signing with a team that has cap space would see Leonard receive a contract of four years, $140.6M. Because of the trade, Leonard is not super max eligible to receive a contract of $221M. In essence, the forward could lose $80M from this trade if he signs with a new team next summer. DeMar DeRozan is under contract through the 2020-21 season with a cap hit of $27.7M for each season. The guard has a player option for the 2020-21 season.

Kawhi Leonard is now super max eligible (third year anniversary of the contract signed on July 16, 2015) to receive a five-year $221 million extension from the Spurs. If Leonard is traded, the most he could receive in an extension (six months after the trade) would be $108 million over four-years (starting in 2019-20). Leonard would be eligible to sign a five-year $190 million contract as a free agent with the team acquiring him or four-years $141 million with a team that has cap space. Leonard would not be super max eligible as a free agent with the new team acquiring him even if he earned All-NBA honors in 2018-19.

Here is the breakdown for Kyle Anderson offer sheet in Memphis: The Grizzlies are using the full midlevel exception ($8.6, $9.0, $9.5 and $9.9 million) on Anderson and will become a hard cap team them this season if San Antonio does not match. Total payroll will increase to $121M with 15 players under contract, $2.7M below the tax and $8.8M under the hard cap. The $9M cap hit for 2019-20 will see Memphis right at the salary cap. The Spurs were already a hard cap team based on the Marco Belinelli contract and now would have $117M in salary if they elect to match. San Antonio still has restricted free agents Davis Bertans and Bryn Forbes unsigned. The hard cap is $129.8M and luxury tax is $123.7M.
