Boozer?

152 posts in this topic

When a player is amnestied he is put on waivers and other teams have to bid on them. For Brendan Haywood the winning bid was $2 million. Whoever bids the highest gets him, at whatever price that happens to be. The bid cannot exceed the previous contract ($16 million per in this case).

Can we quit bashing UNC fans...

I'm a huge Carolina fan and most of the time I'm the only one defending guys like Henderson, McBob, etc...

That is the way I understand it, but others might know more

 

teams under the cap can bid on the amnestied player, and their bid allows them to pay a portion of the player's salary, with the original team paying the rest (so if boozer's salary was $15m and the heat bid $2m for him, the heat would pay $2m and the bulls would pay $13m, but he would only count towards the heat's cap). if no team bids, they become a free agent.

Does the previous contract length transfer over to the team that acquires him?

Here is an oversimplified version of the amnesty provision.

 

Here is a more in depth description of amnesty, but it's full of NBA contract jargon some of you may not understand.

That is correct. For Boozer teams bidding will only be bidding for this season, as this was the final season of his deal.

I can't stand people who bring their favorite college allegiance into the equation. I don't like Henderson bc makes us worse IMO. Not bc he went to duke. I don't like pj so far bc he seems to be too immature not bc he went to unc. It's infuriating to see people Be biased bc of a college game.

I hope the best for all of our players including Hendo regardless where they have played and wish people would do the same.

I'd do $4 mil.

We could prob bid about 5 mil for him, and then use the full MLE if we still wanted Lance too. 

 

I think so anyways.
