Nets' 2013-14 salary information

July, 24, 2013
Brooklyn Nets backup big man Andray Blatche has the right to veto any trade next season because he signed a one-year contract and will be eligible for Early Bird Rights at the end of the season, according to respected salary cap website

The second year of Blatche's contract is a player option, but he'd be eligible for a four-year extension worth around $25 million starting in 2014-15.

Other notes from the website, which updated its player salaries for the 2013-14 season Wednesday:

Jason Terry had a 7.5 percent trade kicker in his contract, so he'll be paid an extra $400,413 million by the Nets this season, and will make $5,625,313.

Shaun Livingston will make $1,272,279 on his one-year, veteran's minimum contract this season, but the Nets are only charged $884,293. The NBA pays the rest.

• As we and other outlets have noted, Kevin Garnett's $12 million salary for next season is fully guaranteed. Garnett has one of four no-trade clauses in the league; Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki have the others.

Contract options:

Deron Williams (15 percent trade kicker): early termination option in 2016-17

Brook Lopez (15 percent trade kicker): player option in 2015-06

Andrei Kirilenko: player option in 2014-15

Mason Plumlee (120 percent rookie scale): team options in 2015-16, 2016-17

A league source told recently that the team's payroll was around $101 million and their projected luxury-tax bill around $83 million. The reason it is projected is because the payroll could change by season's end.
