2017 NBA Manifesto (from Mark Deeks, shamsports.com):
” The idea of the manifesto is thus. It outlines the assets available to every NBA team. It looks at what their financial situation is, what instruments and exceptions they have for spending, and their total salary outlook. It does the same with their draft position. It looks at the players they already have on their roster, plus the issues that need addressing as a team. And then it thinks aloud about what to do with it all.
It does this 30 times for 30 teams. All in all, it gets quite big.”
