Now as far as signing Arenas goes, I'm a little confused. I thought the Grizzlies would have to sign him at the vet min of $1.4mil so then we'd have to unload someone like Pargo's $1,000,000 to get under the tax line again. However, the Commercial Appeal tweeted this.

Someone with more knowledge might be able to explain this.

Only a month and a half left so Arenas only gets like 300 K.
