Boston sent two-future second round draft picks, including a top-55 protected 2022 Hornets second rounder from the Gordon Hayward sign-and-trade last year, in exchange for a reported $110,000 in cash from the Knickerbockers. The Celtics also created $17.1 million traded player exception to officially complete the deal for Fournier.
Boston currently has the following usable TPEs:— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) August 17, 2021
$17.1M - Evan Fournier
$9.7M - Tristan Thompson
$5M - Daniel Theis
They have a few smaller ones, but they aren't really usable.
Reminder: TPEs can NOT be combined, nor aggregated with player salaries.
The Daniel Theis TPE will need to be used by the 2022 trade deadline sometime in mid-February. Both the Fournier and Tristan Thompson TPEs will expire in the offseason next summer.
