Houston will create a $1.54M (+$100K) trade exception by sending the expiring contract of Chinanu Onuaku to Dallas. The Mavericks had $2.5M in room to acquire the former second-round pick. The Rockets now have 10 guaranteed contracts and 3 with non/partial, Michael Carter-Williams, Vincent Edwards and Zhou Qi. The luxury tax penalty now stands at $16.6M, a savings of $3.8M. The tax will increase once the roster is filled out.
