They can sign a player with this exception, or they can use it in a trade to help make salaries work a little bit. This will give them additional flexibility if moves were to be made. Mitch has shown what he can do with these exceptions, such as the exception that was used to reel Nash over here.
If I am Mitch, I would try to use this exception to buy a first rounder from someone. We can't keep dodging the draft like this (not intended to be humorous here).
So......you would actually spend the 1.78 million to let little Johnny Buss attempt to scout someone and advise who to draft.
That would be as useful as letting him buy lollipops with the money
This is WHY we traded away all our picks.
