TNT's David Aldridge tweeted "Only guaranteed $ Raps have in '15 in deal is Hayes ($5.9M). Can clear $14.5M by declining options/qualifying offers 4 PP, Vasquez, Salmons". Additionally, SBNation.com's Tom Ziller tweeted "Raptors fans are going to be cheering their tails off until Johnny Salmons is mysteriously getting 28 minutes per game".
Yahoo! Sports's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted "Sacramento will send John Salmons, Vasquez, Patterson and Hayes to the Raptors, sources tell Yahoo Sports". Locked on Sports's David Locke also tweeted: Gay is making a little over 17 million - Kings Thorton highest paid at 8 million, Salmons is at 7, Hayes and Thompson at 6, Patterson at 3.
NetsDaily.com tweeted "Salmons partially guaranteed next year. $1M on $7M". NBA.com's John Schuhmann also tweeted: Not a lot of expiring $ on the Kings' payroll. Gotta figure Salmons (only guaranteed $1M next season) is involved.
National Post's Eric Koreen tweeted "Here is the Kings salaries: You would have to start with Thornton and Salmons, I imagine". Additionally, NBCSports.com's Aaron Bruski tweeted "Salmons on to cover Hayward. It’s certainly not for his 1-of-8 mark from the field".
NBCSports.com's Aaron Bruski tweeted "So I’m not going to look before guessing, but I’m thinking Salmons and Thornton are about 5-of-24 tonight". In related news, Aaron Bruski of NBCSports.com tweeted "John Salmons may as well lay down on the floor and put cones around himself when on D. Light some candles. Eat a sandwich".
