PBT Podcast: Bird Rights Trap: The game

John Hollinger of The Athletic coined the term

“Bird Rights Trap” to describe while a group can exceed the revenue

cap to re-sign a useful player but wouldn’t open 

cap area if the player leaves.

On the trendy ProBasketballTalk Podcast

 Dan Feldman and Keith Smith of Spotrac analyze

groups caught inside the Bird Rights

Trap this summer season, making 

calls on whether they have to pay up or

let the participant stroll: The episode opens with dialogue 

of Kyrie Irving, who opted in with the Nets after

 recording. However, the evaluation of Irving’s

cost nonetheless holds water, mainly 

with Brooklyn eligible to sign him to an extension this summer.
