The Spurs had enough salary cap room. remember when they couldn't get Jason Kidd or Alonzo Mourning? They therefore had enough money to get both Mercer's and Turkoglu's contracts from that three-way trade, and Ferry had to be traded as part of the deal? It was surely a ripoff, and now San Antonio boosts up its morale by boosting up its frontcourt.
they wasted 11 million dollars of cap space on those 2, it wasent that great.....it went from Jason Kidd or Jermaine O'Niel to Elton Brand to Hedo and Ron Mercer, dont be fooled into thinking they pulled one over
