The Milwaukee Bucks improved their cap situation this offseason though it wasn't intentional.
The Bucks' $32 million offer sheet to Jeff Teague was matched by the Atlanta Hawks and then they dealt Brandon Jennings to the Detroit Pistons in a sign-and-trade for Brandon Knight, who remains on his rookie contract.
The Bucks are approximately $7 million under the NBA's salary cap.
"It wasn't a goal," Hammond said. "The process just kind of evolved. It wasn't a goal to be sitting here at this date and be having this kind of (salary) room.
"We do like the young pieces on our roster. The three main points for us that we've talked about are No. 1, our financial flexibility. No. 2, the youth of this team. Can the youth develop the way we think they can? I think it's realistic to say yes.
"And No. 3 is the veteran players we brought in, those guys providing mentorship and helping us on the floor, helping us win games."
