Rockets, by trading Michael-Carter Williams to the Bulls, will clear his $1.5M salary off the books – which will ultimately save around $3M in luxury taxes, will open up a roster spot (for Danuel House, etc.), and will give them a $1.2M trade exception.— Albert Nahmad (@AlbertNahmad) January 7, 2019
