MWP's contract only has 2 more years left on it after this season. Same as Ridnour except $3 Million more. They can buy him out if he under-performs or just pay him the rest of his deal, Minnesota getting so far under the cap doesn't matter because Kevin Love will take up their cap space with his extension.

Getting 2 1st Rd picks back is well worth it for a player in Beasley they're likely going to move down the line anyways and a player in Ridnour who they have no use for with Rubio emerging and JJ Barea as his backup.
