    Yeah AK47 is pretty sick. But I think names like CB4 come from the commentators trying to spice things up, so they aren't saying the same names all the time.. Can't really blame them
    CB4 was a better movie than a nickname

    I could but the picture is too small.

    Does anyone else have the desire to see Jonas, perhaps next year, dish out 100k to Hakeem the Dream to train with him for a summer (much like Dwight, Kobe and Staudemire did?). I just had an odd vision of JV shimmy-shaking defenders then taking it hard to the rim.

    I seriously doubt that's gonna happen. He's already sacrificing a good chunk of money by buying himself out of his European club.

    How much was he getting paid for L. Rytas? Was it more than $1.5M?

    Raps surely put in the max allowed $550k leaving him with just under $2M. His rookie contract is the max 120% allowed and just over $3.5M.

    *EDIT* Taxes are being neglected here. But if he isn't ahead after this year, he will be ahead by quite a bit starting next season.

    I've never understood why a team is only allowed to contribute $550k to a buyout but can include $3M in an NBA trade. I realize it is in the CBA (smartasses), however I'm trying to understand the reasoning for it? Really a buyout is just another form of trading.

    Not sure this is a legimate question for this thread, but I've always been curious.

    I think it was included in the CBA to ensure that more foreign players fulfill their contractual obligations with their non-NBA teams, to allow those teams/franchises/fanbases to have some roster continuity and to mask some of the feelings of them being raided by NBA teams. They invest money, time and effort into developing these kids, so it's only fair that they play out their contract - if the NBA teams could pay the buyout, this wouldn't happen. I suppose it also ensures some extra years in the league for players that these foreign kids are eventually going to replace when they come over to the NBA, which is another benefit to the players union.

    Yeah I think Calgary is absolutely right. NBA clubs have a huge financial advantage over Rest Of World clubs, I think this $550k limitation slows down NBA clubs from sucking out the talent from other countries and therefore ensuring more possibilities for native players (americans mostly). If there wasn't such limitation, I think there would be so much more international players in NBA and vice-versa - less talented cheaper americans would flood rest of world clubs.
