There are two types of contracts to be considered. First are players for whom 2022 is their last or only contract year. Second are players who have zero or little guaranteed past 2022. I'll exclude players that have multiple years remaining such as Jamal Adams. All of these depend on a successful 2022 performance.

From the math I could figure when we traded Russ, we paid him $45M a year for the 2 years he was on his most recent contract. At least we got two 1sts, two 2nds, and 2 likely starting players, I guess.

What is the reason for the dead money for Quandre Diggs and Phil Haynes? I had always associated dead money with a player departure.
