Could Spurs Use Robert Horry to Balance Trade?


Enter Horry, who would re-sign with San Antonio for this season only in a deal worth (insert necessary $ figure here) and then be traded. He would then be waived by the Kings while chuckling on his way out the door with a huge check in hand, with the Kings also possibly taking back Michael Finley (expiring deal worth $2.5 million) and getting out from underneath a contract (Salmons or Miller) they no longer see as part of the big picture plan. Because Horry played last season, I believe it’s within the post-retirement timeframe that this sort of deal would still be allowed by the league. The part where this likely falls apart – if it’s ever discussed at all – is the Kings wanting more.
