Brooklyn working on buyout of Howard's contract

Recommended Posts

Why did we take on Mosgov's two-year $32.7M contract instead of negotiating a buy-out of Howard's $23.5M one year deal (like the Nets are working on)? Does Mitch plan on Mosgov being a contributor? Is there another deal looming?

I'm assuming we don't plan to be especially competitive next year (although we could still flirt with playoff contention in the East).  Will Mosgov's expiring contract have some value after next year perhaps?

My guess is because it would still cost us 15-16 mil (at a minimum) to buyout Howard, at least with Moz we pay that AND get a player vs paying for nothing. Again, I highly HIGHLY doubt we ever see the second year of Mozgov’s contract. It’ll be an expiring and gain value much like Howard’s did. Always better to have something than it is to have nothing.
