No Luxury Tax Relief For Jazz If Harpring Retires

The Jazz will not receive luxury-tax relief if Matt Harpring retires for medical reasons this offseason.
The Deseret News consulted Larry Coon, a leading collective bargaining expert and occasional RealGM contributor.
Harpring said Thursday that he's contemplating retirement because of a lingering ankle injury.
He has undergone three knee surgeries in his career, two being microfracture procedures, and one on each ankle.
"There is no way they can have his '09-10 salary removed from the books," Coon said.
