    Default Camby saga - buyout details in post #100

    You know, in some ways this trade is reminiscent of the Vince Carter trade. Some serviceable players coming to Toronto, picks and a former star big man who has no intentions of suiting up:

    Marcus Camby isnít officially a Raptor yet, but has already asked for either a buyout or trade so he can join a contending club
    Source: NY Post

    How are you going to feel if they buyout Camby, who is owed $7.6M?

    he would have done the same thing for any of the non contending teams in the league.

    with him wanting out can't we negotiate a lower buyout price or threaten to just let him sit?

    I don't care if he stays or goes, rather he exit because his leadership capabilities are over-rated and frankly, I don't want any moaning players here, but this comment from the thread on the site hit the nail on the head:

    Yawn. Yet another fading NBA player thinking he deserves a shot at a title so requests/demands to be traded to a contender. Contract is a contract, so go get fitted for a uniform until yer traded. If he really wants out, there should be no buyout - if you're so valuable, why don't you just agree to tear up the contract and take your chances in the free agent market?

    Arse, that quote sums it up for me.

    Not to mention his contract is actually only guaranteed for $5Mish.
    And buy-outs CAN be negotiated. Just because he's owed a certain amount on his contract, the buy-out can be negotiated to any price really. I guess Camby will be very flexible!

    What if no team wants him after we buy him out? Does that mean he's out of a job and should retire?

    I heard an interesting expression a while back that might be relevant:

    I as well posted on the main page...this is a power play and a heist....and I am having a DeNiro moment...Masai should have Leiweke give his agent a call and give him the facts about what "blackballin" really means.

    Tell him, to retire if he doesn't want to play. I think he could be usefull, but it is Masais job to build a franchaise, a championship not mess around with this type of response from a 39 year old pro.
    Play, you get payed, don't play, you don't get payed.
    Bet he won't take a 50% paycut to help with the trade.

    I wouldn't like it if his buyout counts against our cap which i think it does. We want to be a friendly franchise but it's time to stop being a doormat for the league. Let him retire.

    Buyouts don't count against the cap. Waiving him would.

    Waiving counts full contract against cap.

    Buy outs count against cap for whatever the buyout amount is.

    Maybe you mean amnesty does not count but that doesn't apply to him, obviously it counts against the cap or teams would use it to get out of contracts all the time, what are you smoking?

    Well, you can't just "buy out" a player without both parties consenting, and I think there are very few examples where both parties are incentivized to do a buy out, although this might just be one such case.

    If teams could force a buy out, then yeah, they'd be buying out bad contracts all the time.

    yeah Eff this. He's never gonna get paid what he's getting now. I would be happy with the Raps saying either you can stay home and get paid and go out like a chump or you can be a man and play and show teams you're worth your contract and we'll try to trade you.

    Of course that never happens.
